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

I'm not familiar with your earlier posts and maybe this has previously been covered but this sounds like a condenser issue. There has been a lot of chatter on the barn recently about junk condensers...

Re: Wood For My 1934 Ford Project

Hey Gary, I think you should pick it up. You have the space, skill and expertise and making wood parts for old Fords has got to be more fun than dealing with cranky old housewives who bitch that the...

Re: Gas tank mounting conundrum

I think that Rich b has it right. Webbing between the tank and frame, two hex bolts and nuts on one side and the single hex bolt with spring on the other. The spring is to allow the frame to flex...

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.

Re: Car lift

You might consider a scissor lift. I bought a used one for $300 to use in a garage with limited ceiling height and restored a 34 5 window on it. It was (and still is) a back saver. That and a low...

Re: Upholstery

I think the off gassing of the rust proofing is certainly probable. I wonder if you could pull off the door panel and and let it bake in the sun to drive off any absorbed solvents/vehicles from the...

Re: head liners

I just put a headliner in my 34 four door, Cartouche from Macs. Nice fit, quality material, and not a wrinkle anywhere. Frankly, comparable to the Lebaron Bonney kit I put in my 31 coupe although I...

Re: Factory welding

I think those are resistance welds similar to the way band saw blades are joined but that's just a guess. I would think it would take a pile of amps to do the job since some of those welds are 12''...
