Re: Car at auction

It's a crap shoot, if you get two guy's that really want, it who knows. I've seen cars go for a lot less than I would figure and some a lot more. V-8 Fords aren't bringing what they once did,...

Re: 46 wagon or convert dash piece

As Gary points out, the rear view mirror covers the joint between the right and left trim pieces. The center strip between the windows covers the bottom gap and also contains the wiper switch. I...

Re: '36 spare tire cover seal won't fit

Before you damage the steel cover I would try to order one from another supplier. It might be a better fit. I purchased my rubber for the spare tire cover for my '46 Woodie from Dennis Carpenter and...

Re: '47 front gravel pan bumpers

Gary, that makes perfect sense, as I've seen most accessory fog lights mounted right to the front pan. I have seen questions on this and other sites as to where the light's should be mounted on the...

Re: '47 front gravel pan bumpers

Re: 46 deluxe hood release cable

Sorry, yes I did mean drivers side. Sometimes the wire (cable) does break or the little clamp will get loose and prevent the hood from opening. I carry a plastic shim, the type carpenters use for...

Re: 46 deluxe hood release cable

No, not thru the core support, it goes along the passenger side of the radiator to the hood release.

Re: 46 deluxe hood release cable

Mike, there should be a small hole, it think it's about 1/2", in the firewall about level with the fender top on the drivers side. The cable goes thru the hole and there are special clips that attach...

Re: Wire splicing

glenn, that's exactly what I meant by using the proper crimping tool, in my text. Those $2.00 one size fits all crimping tools should be outlawed. We never soldered a wire while I served in the Navy...

Re: Wire splicing

Sometimes soldering two or more wires isn't possible for several reasons. Using the proper crimp butt connector is totally acceptable. The biggest issues with compression splices is using the wrong...

Re: Tailgate anti-rattle balls (1938 SW)

Perhaps try putting the ball in a hose clamp and snug it up then clamp the hose clamp to the vise somehow.

Re: Tailgate anti-rattle balls (1938 SW)

Re: Tailgate anti-rattle balls (1938 SW)

Well, If you have a drill press, I would try to secure the ball in a vise somehow and drill it. Perhaps make some sort of wooden clamp to grab around the ball. If you had a lathe that might also...

Re: Tailgate anti-rattle balls (1938 SW)

One thing you might try is to purchase McMaster-Carr PN 9957K12, that is a 1" rubber ball at $6.99 for a set of 5. You will need to bore a 5/16" hole in the center of the ball. Might work until you...

Re: Tailgate anti-rattle balls (1938 SW)

Jaques, one thing to mention is that the ball's were installed on the rods before the loop's were put on the ends. You will need to slice the balls to get them to fit over the rods, unless you heat...

Re: Tailgate anti-rattle balls (1938 SW)

Re: Anyone use these drill/tap all in one?

Yes, I have seen them and used them BUT the issue is, after you get the hole drilled if you are going too fast and the tap grabs it breaks.

Re: Rust Oleum spray cans

I do what 38Bill suggests. When I'm done with the paint, I pop the nozzle off, and put it in a jar of thinner.
