Re: A little wood rot around screw holes

I would try this first. No need in drilling out oversize. You more than likely can find a scrap of wood laying around cut the corner off with a knife and use that as a plug. Being this will be...

Re: Interior costs question

Great advice. For the seats there will most likely be more involved than simply putting in new fabric. If the original seat fabric (or a reasonable facsimile) is in place, be careful removing it. You...

Re: Should I pass on this A? Or would I miss out on something?

Sorry to the OP for the hijack, I do agree with your response to my post Brent. I too get annoyed when I see an add for a car that says something to the effect 'all original, only 1 repaint'!!!!!

Re: Should I pass on this A? Or would I miss out on something?

Johnnya, I dont know 'As' but I have dabbled in old cars a bit. Cheap/inexpensive is not always the best way to buy a classic, really should almost be the last reason to buy one. Looks like you may...

Re: Running Board Picnic Table Accessory

Yeah, I thought it looked like an old camp table. I guess you could say it was used in conjunction with an old car, being the same vintage. I have a modern version made of aluminum that I bought at...

Re: 1930 Sport Coupe finally!!

To the OP, nice looking car. Good luck with it. What are the intentions? Getting it to run safely or a full blown resto?
Question on the sport coupe. Does the top come down?

Re: Oversize brake rivets?

That sounds like a good deal. I dont know the size, other than they were large, but I got some rivets and the oversized rivet gun from LMC trucks.

Re: Removing Bondo.

Never tried heat, I assume the heat gun wont warp the metal. I have used paint stripper, let it soak in for a bit and it comes off fairly easy. If its thick will take several coats. In the past I got...

Re: Anyone Know About This Car?

Looks like a really nice car. If I were currently in the market I may be tempted. But, for the purchase price plus another $20k for the resto you would be close money to buying a finished one.

Re: MARC National Meet & Ford Garage

Never heard of it, but looks like a pretty cool place. By this post I would assume there are at least 2 of them.

Re: Colonel Sanders

That's too funny, I just saw that pic on the wall at KFC yesterday at lunch and thought it was pretty cool. Given the fact that the model A was a very popular auto, I would say there was a great...

Re: Not model A related (entirely) Kindig-it-Design

The Kindig show is one of the better ones, but still a bit hard for me to watch. All of those type of shows have too much drama, but hey, most people wont watch it unless there is. Dave may be a...

Re: Non-Authentic Paint Schemes

I'm pretty sure (and most of you probably already know about it) that there was either a model A or a '32 that was done in stainless and polished. I believe it was done in conjunction with maybe...

Re: Collector Car Insurance

That's surprising. I have Grundy on my car (77 trans am) and the price for agreed value is very cheap in my mind. I pay less than $200 for $30k coverage. I specifically asked (called and talked to...

Re: Schwalms

I think for the cost of the rebuild, and before I would bash them, I would get in my car and drive there and talk to them in person, rather than relying on one errant phone call. Length of time may...

Re: A Car Cover for a 1931 Victoria

Re: Insuring '28 coupe

Not an A, but I have Grundy. Less than $200 for over $30k agreed value. Towing and repairs up to around $300 is covered. They will also insure cars under construction. I think the antique policies...

In Maryland there is no additional fee for a YOM plate. You must register your vehicle in the historic plate category, then you carry the new one in the car with the YOM displayed. At least here, its...
