Re: 1930 Deluxe 2dr Phaeton.

Re: roadster doorand deck lid stuffing

Deck has a piece of felt-like material about 1/8"-3/16 thick; rather soft, not hard. Maybe 4x5" rectangle. I suppose it is a stiffner and the pad is anti-rattle. Most wonder why the inner liner of a...

Re: Making cotter pin hole in shackles

I have used a mill with a 1/8 center cutting mill bit before with no problem.

Re: 1931 Model A Ford P/U Cab Top Steel Roof Rails

Those look correct without having the exact lengths. there may be other models and other dimensions that are similar but I believe those to be the ones. If so, good find as they are hard to come by....

Re: Body/fender steel

So when was a 2X4, 2x4? Long time ago! I have seen factory prints that spec 20 gauge also. However, I think thru the years, specs changed. One posted that it mic'd out a .037; well, current 20 gauge...

Re: 1930 Cabriolet estimate value

You can't really put a value on it without more info.
How much is right and how much is wrong? Looks like the top angles are way off. Are the top assembly and irons even correct? How much will have...

Re: can you unchop a top?

Can be done but experience needed. Not for a first timer and not something you would want to pay another to do. Will take forever even with experience. Unless you have lots of "free" time, move on....

Re: shocks

Lots of folks leave shocks lubed (light grease) but dry on show cars so they don't show leakage.
