Re: hidden radio ideas or just slighty out of sight. wood hide door?

I listen to Classic country on my truck radio all the time and I am 79. Don't listen to all this Rap Crap at all or modern Rock.

Re: Mystery Door Handle

I have an original handle like that on my 30 Ford coupe, have always known it was the wrong year for it. It was on the car when I bought it back in 1957.

Re: Safety Wire

Just use the stainless, one roll will last you a life time and will never rust. Wish I had a $100 for every inch of safety wire that I have used.

Re: Installing Modern shocks

Use either a steel or fibre self locking nut, they work on airplanes so should be OK for our old Fords. Steel is usually use when there is heat involved.
