Re: Best location for master switch in a Tudor

Re: Side Mirror Installation Tips Needed

I'm a believer in the tool to press out the hinge pins. I tried tapping the out with a drift punch. No luck. I built my own tool patterned after the commercial tools. It made a tough job simple. It...

Re: Push Button Turn Signals

I installed the LogoLites turn signal kit on my 29 Fordor. I ordered the cloth wire loom from Brattons and ran all the wiring thru that. I feel it gives it a more original look. I also used the...

Re: So here's my question......

China is capable of making quality parts. The problems are caused by the ordering US companies not staying on top of the quality control. All that aside, I try to buy US made stuff when I can. But it...

Re: LED tail light kits

I installed the replacement LED bulbs in my 29, it has an added right tail light. To compare brightness, I put one bulb in and tried the lights. I was not impressed.

Re: Ford Tri-Motor

In Dayton, Ohio, I flew in a Tri motor in the early 60s. I was 12 or 13. The plane was touring the midwest. I don't remember if it flew from the Moraine airport or from the Montgomery County Airport,...

Re: Ebay model A

Re: Wiring help

Even though all the wiring is new, I took the same approach. Plus I added a battery disconnect under the drivers seat. When I pull the car inside, I shut off the gas and throw the disconnect switch....

Re: Question about posts

Other forums offer a category for "off topic" threads. The Barn doesn't so those threads tend to wind up where some people feel they don't belong, holiday greetings, etc. I enjoy most of that banter....

Re: Remove mold

The only sure fire method I know is bleach. I would dilute it quite a bit and test a small inconspicuous spot. DO NOT USE FULL STRENGTH! Rinse thoroughly and let it air dry. Lots of sunshine will...

Re: Jay piercy's 30 coupe is on ebay...

Of course the auction closed without a bid. For this quality car eBay is not the venue to use. However it does give you worldwide exposure. Post # 3 has the right idea, start lower maybe 10K with a...

Re: Another rare eBay find!

Look at their feedback rating and read all their negative feedback posts! At 79.1% the only reason eBay doesn't dump them is they must be a real cash cow.
