Re: Pictures, how to post?

The secret might be closely kept but 1600 x 900-ish seems to be a size that always works for me. It's those buggers that are over 3000 in any dimension that get spit back.

Re: Brake Floaters For 1936

The process for 1935 cars is in the December 1934 Bulletin. That'll get you pretty darn close with your '36.

Have a couple of rags handy when you're pulling the inner cable out of the sleeve, if you're lucky the cable will be lubed, but it's likely to be nasty and will want to get on your interior.

Re: The fun begins
