Re: Roy Nacewicz

Re: Who Remembers Model "A" Parts in the Sears Catalog?

Re: Interesting read in Hemmings about restoration costs.

That is a very interesting article. Being partially in the resto business none of it surprises me. What often does surprise (or startles) me is the cost of materials and products!
And, I find it...

Re: Sandblasting sheet metal parts

Great advice from posts above. I’m not too fond of black diamond but other sands have gotten so expensive. Anything silica has been banned I think

Re: POR 15 Gas Tank Sealer

Leaded or unleaded is not the issue I don’t think
The problem has been ethanol
I don’t think leaded gas is legal except for some aviation fuels

Re: Failing gas tank sealant

I’ve seen all of them fail to some degree
What is the guarantee? Send you another quart?
The problem is the ethanol gas....mostly
Run 100% gas
