Re: USA mfg screws

Roy at one time had #12’s with a #10 head which was slick, and had oversized head screws as well. He ran out of both a few years ago and they have been obsolete ever since.

Re: Helmet and why not ????

Re: Etching Ford Bugs on to glass.

Graham, I just pm’ed you. The activator and etching cream both have a shelf life so check the etching cream to insure it is still good. If it is not I will gladly mail you more.

Re: Trying to save a "raised deck" v-8 !!!!!!! UPDATED!!
