Do You Guys Constantly Re-touch Wheel Spokes?

were the original lug nuts on the wheels slightly wider than repros, as it seems to me the wheels always get scratched using the crank tool, which is a sloppy fit.

Re: Rewiring . . . What would you do different?

I have seen references to Sacramento harnesses in numerous posts over time. Does anyone have specific knowledge if they are really more quality than those sold by our most reliable parts dealers?

Re: DId Model "A"s Come With a Spare Tire?

I think the earliest pre-production photos/ads showed the cars without bumpers but as actually released, the bumpers were in fact installed.

Didn't they actually refer to rear bumpers as "fender...

DId Model "A"s Come With a Spare Tire?

I've seen a photo of new cars being transported and they only had a rim on the spare tire carrier. Was a spare tire something the dealer sold to the new car purchaser?

does anyone know why there is not the improved steering column bracket for the 28-29 models? does the structure of the earlier models not accommodate such a bracket?
