Re: Please drive your 33-34 Ford today in honor of my friend from Texas

My 34 is not drivable yet but I will think of your friend and how fortunate I am to be able to work on it today.

Re: Wood top ribs question

Do not install the chicken wire over bare wood. Place a strip of denim or muslin on the top of each rib. This prevents the chicken wire from squeaking or tapping on the wood while driving.

Re: wood top bow supplier?

You're right David. I ordered some parts about a year ago and what I got took forever. I never did get everything. He actually cancelled the balance of my order!! Too bad, the quality of what I did...

Re: wood top bow supplier?

Unless you are trying to be 100% original I would think any decent fab shop could make that repair.

Re: 34 2 door sedan

Re: 33-34 Ford radiator mount pieces

I have a pair of these that I think are in pretty good shape. I haven't looked at them for a couple of years. I also have riveting tools and I may even have the rivets. Everything is in Washington...

Re: hunting a ghost problem in my '47

Re: Headliner question #2

With regards to compatible windlace, talk to Dave Trank, the Cartouche upholstery manager at Macs. He is a pretty knowledgeable guy and can be a good resource.
