Re: 1935 Sedan Convertible HELP

This is exactly right! Slow and sure, no pinched fingers, no torn canvas. At minimum, it's a two man job even when you know how to do it.

Re: Newbie to forum, and Ford.

There are two Mac's. There's the Mac's with the big splashy ads, then there is Mac Van Pelt, who relies mostly on word of mouth. Word to the wise.

Re: Wheel stands

When considering new stands, give a thought to the feet. How much support is there and what sort of surface will it be sitting on. Ask me how I know bad things can happen.

Re: Newbie to forum, and Ford.
