Re: side curtains

I have a 29 phaeton and store them under the front seat, it is a tight fit. Don't use a bag just. I do place a towel on top to provide some cushion. Been doing this for about 10 years with no issues.

Re: rattle, rattle - steering column.....

On second thought, I used that on the rod in the emergency brake. Again, it worked there.

Re: How do you fold the phaeton roof

I've always done it the same way, never any problems. Well once, when I wasn't paying attention, caught my finger between the irons......ouch! My fingernail did grow back.

Re: The New Ford for 1928

I noticed that the drivers use the running board when entering the car. For me, it is much easier to skip the runningboard when entering.

What should one would look for when "inspecting" the clutch? I don't have any symptoms but would feel better if I knew what I was looking for!

Re: 29 open car windshield stay open?

Thanks and Congratulations on your Henry Award. I don't have the spring tension washers......I'll check to see if 28/29 had them. Even if they didn't this one might get them.

Thanks.
