Re: Reinstalling fenders, splash shields

I would like to see that too! I can also imagine it would vary greatly on year and model. There are probably some generalities that would go for most body styles.

Re: Water pumps, playing around

The suppliers sell an inexpensive collar you can buy that is a fix that does not require brazing or a new pump.

Re: Loose Quarter Windows

Well just to keep in on Model A's, one of the front windows on my '29 Tudor does the opposite. Once it is cranked all the way open, it wants to inch itself back up again. I blame the Vintique widow...

Re: Dead

One of your questions was whether the starter rod rubbing on the gas control arm could be a reason for your starting and dead battery issue. The answer to that is no.
