Re: Steering Wheel Covers

Do you have a sewing machine? If so,it's really easy to make one. It'll probably cost around five bucks. It's worth a try.

Re: 1936 lower radiator hoses installation

Is it possible that you have the wrong year water inlets/motor mounts? 35 and 36's are a little different. One of them sticks straight out and the other tips down about 15 degrees. Just a thought.

Re: Painted My First Car (well, parts of one!)

Good job!

My first paint job was about 40 years ago. The guy at the paint store said that the closest to a perfect paint job was just before the paint runs.
.....It was ALMOST perfect.
