Re: Vintage film 1934 Ford @ World's fair

Don't think there were any "small" individual machines.

Re: Correct spray paint for 33/34 steering wheel

If you insist on painting your steering wheel, what I have used is single stage urethane with the necessary prep and a color of you choice.
It is wear resistant.

Re: bleeding brakes. What worked for me.

Depending on the master you have, you could use the cap from a dual master remote fill kit.
