Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Yes sir, the same material. The photo attached is from a '39 coupe I'd restored. Same as a '40 in this regard.

Re: Body Re assembling after paint 38

I always open up certain holes on the fenders and grille to make alignment so much easier. When everything is zipped up, there is no way to see that the holes were opened a bit. It may be difficult...

Re: Shock linkage

This is exactly what I use. They can be purchased at any decent auto parts store. It's a tie rod end press.

Re: Body Re assembling after paint 38

I should have added that you may find the need to loosen the lower bolts to body of the front fenders when you install the boards. LOOSEN.
Still, I have done a few 39 standards that are quite...

Re: Body Re assembling after paint 38

Get the entire front clip on including the hood, adjusted properly and tight. THEN the running boards and lastly, the rear fenders.

I have the front fenders and inner panels assembled prior to...

Re: Soldering iron

I have noticed that it takes a bit longer to melt those old solder joints. I too use a Weller gun. It happens but takes a bit longer than "normal".
Patience my friend, patience :)

Re: Emergency brake setup

Tim, Please pay special attention to the springs. As has been rightfully advised, the repop's have springs that are way too long. When installed they should be of a (proper) length so the shoe is...

Re: 1934 ford grill NOS

There are experts on '34s that troll the Barn. I'm certain, if they are so willing, could offer you a very accurate estimate of value.
Or, you could list it on eBay with no reserve and within seven...

So perhaps I missed something in the ad. Is this for five of these grilles? Six of them?

Re: 39 coupe interior

Drake sells the paper in rolls. Enough to make the pair. You need the thicker of the two he sells.

Re: 39 coupe interior

Terry, Most '39's didn't have an insulator as the original poster referred to.
In fact the 39's had a heavy tar paper identical to the stuff in the roof of the car and between the inner and outer...

Re: 1934 standard roadster?

DavidG, While I don't consider myself a '32 = '34 guy, I read each and every one of your posts if for no other reason, just to learn new things.
I'd like to thank you for sharing your knowledge and...

Re: 39 coupe interior

Yep, same page. Like I'd mentioned previously, it was not originally glued down. I'm guessing it's just stuck due to age.

Re: 39 coupe interior

Andy, the new Benton Gray mat will come with a modern type backing. It is fine to use if you desire.
To remove the old mat, you'll need to do (obviously) what's necessary. It wasn't originally glued...

Nope. In fact the "goo" will rot the rubber in the course of time.

Re: Oil filter

Rick, I'm with Corvette8n in that I prefer 20w/50. You are certain to get a lot of differing opinions on this.

I'd suggest you simply change the oil a bit more often than "normal" and forget...

Re: Oil filter

The filter (proper) looks like this although your '41 had different lines plumbed than the '40.

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Here's why I prefer to paint the cars in color... I really enjoy the contrast, especially beneath the car.

Re: Identifying a Ford generator

No part number on the body. However, there's a code stamped in the body. that code will tell you what year and month the body was manufactured.
From the photo you'd posted, that's a late '40 pulley...

Re: 30 amp generator vs 55 amp

The "big" genny for '40 fit perfectly as per the photos I have of police vehicles so equipped back then. I can't speak for other years.
