Re: 32 Cabriolet rumble seat gap ?

Are the rumble stops present and set correctly?
IE is the lid at the appropriate angle? On a Model A, the gap does widen if the lid goes “deeper” into the opening

Re: Who Remembers Model "A" Parts in the Sears Catalog?

including fenders as being “Western Auto”

Re: Interesting read in Hemmings about restoration costs.

That is a very interesting article. Being partially in the resto business none of it surprises me. What often does surprise (or startles) me is the cost of materials and products!
And, I find it...

Re: POR 15 Gas Tank Sealer

Leaded or unleaded is not the issue I don’t think
The problem has been ethanol
I don’t think leaded gas is legal except for some aviation fuels

Re: Failing gas tank sealant

I’ve seen all of them fail to some degree
What is the guarantee? Send you another quart?
The problem is the ethanol gas....mostly
