Re: speedometer cleaning/repair on my '41 PU

I believe I may have serviced it. Was able to get it apart, cleaned and got the odometer working. It's rainy here today and tomorrow so I'll test drive it Sunday. Thanks for all of the suggestions.

Re: Junior Johnson Passes On

Junior was right popular in the Wilkesboro NC area. Up until the last few years the local news would do a story about him every once in a while. Was truly one of the first Nascar pioneers.

Options for mounting a spare tire on my '41PU

Hello all,
I'd like some suggestions or options for mounting the spare tire on my PU. The only thing I currently have is a hole in the running board and the divet in the fender.
TIA,
