Re: brake light

Did you recently replace the switch? The reproductions are iffy at best. Also, if I remember right, the early switches were mounted as pull switches, and the later as push switches. Make sure it...

Re: Not running

Re: What Year Is This Coupe ?

Not my style....at all, but the workmanship is stunning. Also, he did a remarkable job of having every piece compliment every other piece. It has a style consistency to it.

Re: spark plug caps

Re: Not Model A related!

Re: Rear Shocks

I also have the Ken Davis shocks on all four wheels. I am very happy with them. Check his website. I'm pretty sure he will sell just the rears.

Re: Model A Registration Woes

Yes, the rules are very state specific. Find out exactly what you need in the state of Maine (or the state you are registering in). I think that they are pretty easy.

Re: Using Ford Barn as an distraction

I'm deeply saddened for your loss. I was an Airman myself. Air Force is family.

I wish you comfort in this time of sorrow.

Re: 30 Coupe seat upholtery parts

I did my '30 Coupe about four years ago. My LB kit did, in fact, come with the draft stoppers and the package tray piece.

Re: Ten years later, she's alive!

Don't forget to flush her out and give her fresh fluids. The old might be okay, but fresh is cheap insurance.

Good luck,
