Anyone going to Santa Rosa next week for the NCRG meet? Should be a fun week, over 100 Model As and 300 people registered. The weather looks like it will be cooperating. Marc

Re: A of the day wheels

So I guess they cut the spokes and weld them to the rim? Has to be touchy getting all of them accurately spaced and centered unless you made a jig for them.

A of the day wheels

What kind of wheels are on Jerry Egglestons roadster that was the A of the day? The centers look like stock 31 but the rims look like 16 inch. Never seen that before. Thanks, Marc

Zenith secondary well

How far do you screw in the secondary well on a Zenith carb.? So it is flush with the casting? The threads on the carb I am working on will allow it to thread in deeper. Thanks, Marc

Re: Running board mats

You may want to try some lacquer thinner on a rag. Just be careful not to the paint.

Re: Running board mats

Depending on how much "bubble" I would leave it to allow for a little shrink. The adhesive will hold it down. You may want to cut a piece of plywood the size of the running board and then stack some...

Re: Running board mats

If you put them on before the contact fully dries (almost dry)they will move and eventually stick. Dry fit them first .
