Re: Hub Hardness and Cutting

Do you mean "cutting the drums"? I see no reason to cut the hubs. sometimes cast iron drums can get quite hard if they are overheated.

Re: 1931 Ford Deluxe roadster stanchion liners.

The original stanchions were stainless. The cups were steel. Liners were stainless and spot welded in a few places to keep them in.

80K propane heater hanging from the ceiling. Keeps it very comfortable after a minute warm up. North Dakota is not the tropics this time of year.

The Horn does not ground on the headlight bar. The ground is supplied through the horn button. Hot is always connected to the horn.
