Re: Seat springs: paint or no?

First, media blast them, then prime them, then paint them then cover in burlap. I used Rust-Oleum, primer and paint in rattle cans.

Re: Electrical schematic request - 41 Convt. electric top

Thanks for the post. The 41' and 53' systems are very similar, except the 53' used a single motor, which would would eliminate the issue of of out of sinc motors. It is interesting to note that just...

Re: Electrical schematic request - 41 Convt. electric top

Just wondering, in 53', the Mercury used two screw jacks and a single motor. How similar were the systems?

Re: Restoring 1953 Mercury Medallion Assembly (front door trim panel)

I cleaned the paint off the back of the medallion. Then packed the crest cavity with wet paper to protect the crest while I painted the back. Then my wife repainted the crest. Now to make a new back.
