Re: Replacing Wood In a '30 Blindback

I've done a '28.
It's rather frustrating unless you pull it down to the frame.

Re: hmmm no headlights on a 31

Bad grounds can happen. I know that well.

Bad ground at the battery end can do that too.

Re: Tire tubes and age.

I have old tubes from the 1930s that still hold air really well, supple flexible rubber.

Re: Teenager cleaning flathead electrolysis

Re: It ran when parked ..... at the bottom of the lake

Might be past restoration, but it'll make a great garage ornament. Inside a glass case filled with argon.

Didn't want clocks on the dashboard so...

Do you think after market gauges distract from the simplicity of the model T?
Do you think modern gauges on old cars look out of place?

Maybe this voice module is for you. It works on 5 - 12...

Re: LED vs HALOGEN

Pro Better battery life.
Cons Depends on what model you buy and how you fit it.
And more sensitive to voltage spikes.

Re: College "A" On Shorpy

I don't understand. The caption says 1942 but the war would be on then. And the shirt says 1945.

Re: Repair of Police (B) Head..

Depending where the cracks are they can be drilled & pinned.
It's what I've done on heads anyone else would throw away.

The lock & stitch things are pretty good.
