Re: Wood graining

I have wood-grained Model A interior mouldings for several cars, and have generally been very pleased with the end results using the Grain-it-Technologies plates and rollers. In my opinion, the...

Re: Did you restore the car yourself?

I suppose that the most truthful response for the majority of us would be one that recognizes that most of us probably do not have either the full skillset or the equipment to fully and completely...

Re: Rumble seat instal

There should be a pair of clips that are attached to the top of the seat back/cushion, and a corresponding slot to accept these on the upper inside of the rumble lid itself. There should also be...

Re: Source for Powder Coating near Atlanta

The last set that I had powder coated (Performance Coatings in Jonesboro, GA) was at $65/wheel with them supplying the powder (black at that time for my Town Sedan). This time however,...

Source for Powder Coating near Atlanta

The last few cars that I have restored I have used Performance Coatings in Jonesboro to powder coat wheels, chassis parts, etc. I called them a few minutes ago to check on their current pricing for...

Re: Road trip - past two non model A trucks

My son-in-law's father has one of the old uni-body trucks from the early 1960's. They apparently fell out of favor because of uneven weight distributions in the pickup bed that would/could affect...

Re: Looking to buy Tacoma Cream powder coat paint for my painter, need help.

I recently tried to order both Hessian Blue and Tacoma Cream from them. My initial phone call to them was probably a month or so ago - nice lady on the other end (I initially left a message for a...

Re: Replacing Wood In a '30 Blindback

Re: Kudos to snyders

Re: Standard Interior in a 30 Town Sedan?

This car appears to have the window garnish mouldings of a Town Sedan. As for the rear seat back and drop down center armrests, these could be swapped out if that level of accuracy were required. ...

Re: bolt that holds folding top irons Cabriolet?

Re: Collector Car Insurance

Re: Top bow suppiers

Top irons for both standard and 30-31 deluxe roadsters should be available through most of the Model A venders. I usually use Smith and Jones out of South Carolina, and a quick review of their web...

Re: Any trick to getting the hinges out of 29 Roadster

Just a thought, but you might want to consider oversized hinge pins ... this might otherwise avoid the need to take the hinges out/off, depending of course upon your reason(s) for doing so. I did...

Re: Insurance

I'd stay away from JC Taylor. I learned the hard way that "uninsured/underinsured" does not apply to property losses. They were great at taking my premiums for over 20 years, but MIA when I...

Re: Snyders rebuilt shift towers

My post should have read "detente" spring. By swapping the forks, I was referring to swapping the forks between the two shifting shafts. So much for "auto-correct" functions.

Re: Snyders rebuilt shift towers

If your core is in good shape and you have no problems with the car jumping out of gear, you might find that it is less expensive to spend the money on a new shift lever and the tools to compress...

You might also check to make certain that the 12 volt coils you are using contain an internal resister. Before I learned that there were also external resisters, I had issues with coil failure as...

Re: Source for colored powder for powder-coating wheels

My preference would be Tacoma Cream, although I am also helping my nephew with a '31 slant window fordor, and he is looking at Hessian Blue. Thanks for your thoughts.
