Re: 15" Rims

A while ago, I bought a set of 15" rims. Three of the four have "knubs" for the hub caps while the fourth has spring like fingers riveted on. Who made each of the two types?

Oh, and if you divide cubic inches by 61, you get liters so you can live in the modern world...

Re: Bishop Tardel roadster body issue

Is that the Ford part or a custom / hand made part?

Re: Bishop Tardel roadster body issue

Get a chassis together and get a body! I've been working on the chassis for close to 20 years now and this was the year to get the body. Space limits me from having two cars (which is the same as a...

Re: Bishop Tardel roadster body issue

Yeah, they show a picture of something of that sort in the book. But, I'm not in the Model A loop, the hole I cut is somewhat too big so I'm thinking of making one of my own. I can use some of my...

Re: Bishop Tardel roadster body issue

This is the cut I made in the rumble seat riser to accept the raised rear crossmember. It's about 18" long. First effort was too far back so I had to make the hole wider. Let me add some dimensions...

Re: Bishop Tardel roadster body issue

OK. I just got an email from Kenny Gollahon at Brookville. He stated that the 2" kick up option that they offer on the A roadster body is sort of designed around the after market frame that they...

Re: Bishop Tardel roadster body issue

I got the body on the chassis yesterday. Before we mounted it, I went in with the 4-1/2" angle grinder with a cut off wheel and cut where I thought it was needed. (It's rough getting in there with...

Re: Bishop Tardel roadster body issue

Bruce had a copy that I borrowed and Xeroxed a few pages out of it. I didn't feel it was worth the price at the time. Zach must have it out in PA now. Anyway, I'm thinking now that it the sub rail...

Re: Bishop Tardel roadster body issue

I'm beginning to think that the body kick up should have been vertical instead of horizontal. If it went up over the rear crossmember, there could still be a body mount and full width of the...

#2- I have never owned or worked on a Model A.
#3-...

Bishop Tardel roadster body issue

A month ago, my brother and I went out to Brookville OH to pickup my '29 roadster body. I ordered it with a flat floor set up fot 2" frame pickup. I finally got it out of my pickup yesterday and got...

Re: People Ask Me What Is It For?

I'm thinking that the older cars with flat glass windows could result in a myriad of reflections off of the windshield and rear window, especially if both were vertical or close to vertical. Covering...

Re: Battery Tenders

I have an old Chevy coupe that I redid and put on the road in 2004. I had put in a Costco battery and a green knob disconnect on the ground post. The car sits in an unheated garage over the winter....

Re: Getting paint inside boxed in areas?

I ordered a flexible thing with a nozzle that's made for use with Fluid Film. I think it's expected to be delivered today. I'll see if I can get it adapted to a rattle can. If not, I'll give the...

Re: Getting paint inside boxed in areas?

I've read that Ford (and others?) painted fenders and other parts by dipping them. They'd have a large tank just about filled with water. Then, they'd pour a layer of paint on top of the water and...

Re: Getting paint inside boxed in areas?

I did this with the inside of my Corvette frame. Garden sprayer with Rustoleum primer half and half with mineral spirits. Kept spraying until it ran out of the holes. Been good so far.

Getting paint inside boxed in areas?

I recently dragged a new roadster body home from the good people in Brookville Ohio. I'm wondering is there's a way to get paint into some areas that either can't be seen without a mirror or boxed in...
