Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Managed to get the backing plate assemblies done as well. I have found it so much easier to have these ready to install to the spindles and rear axle housings as assemblies than build them on the...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

The body work is going along actually quite well. In a different thread here on the Barn, the question was raised as to the quality of the reproduction rear tool tray pan.
Well, let's say it's...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Sorry but now the project as always slows. The body work takes more time than any other part of my restorations. I'd mentioned in an earlier post that to keep me fairly sane, I will often prepare...

Re: Gas and ways to seal

Re: Painting Copper Brake Lines

Ian, I think you are thus far doing a nice job with this project and I commend you.
The lines? My vote? Leave them. I like the detail shown in the different finishes. That's one major reason I...

Re: 39 Ford Conv side window fit

Mike, I'd restored enough of these cars to appreciate your frustration.
The issue you deem a common problem is more often than not due to poor restoration techniques and less of a factory assembly...

Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

It is apparent that you do not realize it is the FUMES that are far more combustible than the liquid.
Please do not park or drive anywhere near me.

Re: Some Questions........

I was thinking the same. Yikes! I was happy to see IAN did not use copper lines.
Still, I'd prefer to see the lines moved to a safer area - an area less likely to be strewn with road debris.

Re: Is this Washington Blue?

Paint chips will typically get a guy close. The problem with paint chips is most darken with age - regardless of how they had been stored.

Re: Body Mounting Pads 1937 1938 1939 open car & 1940 1941 Station Wagon Sedan Delive

The pads you refer to were most certainly on '39 - '40 wagons. They were not on '39 - '40 convertible coupes.
These pads were fairly thick - perhaps a full 1/8" They seemed to be similar, but not...

Re: tesla Truck

You, like the rest of the folks will start to call it a truck if that's what tesla calls it. Just think of all the station wagons on the road that folks call SUV's. Cut the crap marketing department,...
