Re: Saving The 1939 Mercury Coupe From The Rust Lagoon

Re: Draining a gas tank

Just as a side note because it reminded me; I bought a new gas tank for my 48 coupe from Tanks Inc. Its a nice tank that fit just right but I didn't notice it until it was installed that they do not...

Re: Clock Repair on the '47

I read somewhere that the electric clock will work just as well on 12 volts as they do on 6v. Can anyone substantiate that or dismiss it?

Re: Shop led lighting

I also replaced all of my florescent lights with LEDs. What a difference! Instant on, even in cold weather, no noise, twice as bright as before...I can see in the garage now. And they are cheaper to...

Re: How would you fix severly pitted crossmember metal?

David, I am retired. Time is the one thing I have more of, or at least a lot more of it than I do money or talent.
