Re: Shocking Advice

Based on OP of 98% original I say go for the "real" shocks. Makes it handle better and will improve it to 99% original. I am glad I spent the bucks to rebuild/replace mine.

Starter rod finish

Can one of you guys tell me the correct finish for the starter rod in 1931? The Restoration Guidelines are fuzzy about it, in my opinion. I understand that in the early years it was cadmium but...

Re: Roy Frost

Ditto on comments by jkcrosson and Scott. Roy was always hospitable. He was a lifetime member of Central Alabama MAFC and will be missed in the hobby.
