Mud Flaps

I was recently given a set of new Mud Flaps for my '31 CCPU

Apparently mounting brackets for these are not available thru the normal Model A vendors.

Any suggestions?

Unless you are dead set on making it just like Henry designed it, and for that kind of money, I would seriously consider the aftermarket solution offered by Newport Engineering. That's the route I...

Re: Headlights and tail lights

If you want "parking lights" to come on with the headlights, just move them over to the tail light terminal in the switch at the bottom of the steering column.

Re: Putting box on 1930 CCPU

Is the bed panel secured with only the one bolt on each side? There were only the 2 holes in the panel when I received it.

Re: Killin time with Covid 19 and JC Whitney

JC Whitney was my go-to source for Model A parts in the late ‘50s. Although I was able to get some stuff from NAPA.
