Re: Fine point judging...a simple question

I have two fine point MARC Henry award Model A's so I figured I'd give you my opinion. Yes the cost of doing a fine point restoration is high but so is doing a nice, reliable driver. I try to do most...

Re: 29 Tudor interior panel question

Fred, I don't think the issue is with dry wood. I had the same problem with my Coupe. I discovered that the quality of the new brads is the issue. I think they're cheap China carp. I dragged out a...

Re: passenger tires

I have both Firestones and the new Goodyear Diamond Treads. I prefer the Goodyears. They look more authentic and don't turn a chalky white like the Firestones do.

Re: Non-Authentic Paint Colors & Schemes

Model A's bad such rich colors, I don't see any reason to deviate from them. Just my opinion. You see other car owners painting their non Model A's in Model A colors.

Re: Throttle shaft brass plug for zenith carbs

By chance does A&L have them? I bought some a couple of years ago. I just don't remember who I got them from.

Re: Rumble Seat - HELP

To heat your rubber stops, simply boil them. You won't stand the chance of damaging them.

Re: Not really about old Fords

Jay Leno's garage has been using one for some time now. The last time I was there they were making some obscure water pump housing.

Re: Front window on 29 Tudor - how to take out

I think you're confusing a 28/29 with a 39/31. The windshields mount differently on them.

Re: Tcp global lacquor paint

Does Hibernia Restorations still mix and sell lacquer? They did a couple of years ago.

Re: original 27-29 seamed cutout-to-terminal box conduits difference?

If both conduits have seamed tubes, they are originals. The different one has a bad repair job.

Re: Source for Service Bulletins

Re: Original, unmolested 28-31 Roadsters and Coupes

My early 28 Coupe is anything but unmolested but the rumble riser is set with rivets as I never saw any evidence of any other fasteners other than rivets.

Re: early 28 steering gear

What you have is the early style lower bearing retainer, used with the open bail light switch. How early is your car?

Re: 29 Tudor rear interior side panel-below side window

Yes, the rear side panels are inserted inside the three tabs behind the seat riser. You can bend them out to get the panel into place then tighten them by tapping them with a hammer.

Re: 29 Tudor kick panels

Also, you will need the retaining clips for the upper forward corners. They have a large hole in them for a small rubber gromet for your electric wiper wire. You will use only one per side.
