Re: 50 Ford question

I just did one and had to drop the tank after suffering through what you described. It went right on after the tank was loose. I wish I had thought of using some vaseline. That would have made it...

Re: need some pix of 36 coupe rear window roller shade

Most likely the rear shade was to prevent glare at night (believe it or not) If you ever drive one of these cars at night, you will see what I mean.

Re: How much brake line does it take to do an old Ford?

I just finished a retro fit on a '37 pickup. One 25' roll will do the job if you don't have too many mistakes. (Don't put the rear wheel cylinders on the wrong side) I agree that a quality flaring...
