Re: Frame paint/finish

Check out Eastwoods Chassis Black. It goes on easy whether you brush or spray and looks good. Satin or gloss is available.

Re: Repro 1930-31 Front Fenders

I have thought that someone could make a couple bucks if they could buy the new fenders at a dealer's price, make the corrections and offer them ready to bolt on. The price would turn many away but...

Re: A mouse repellent that works

Probably not politically correct but had a friend with a shop full of really old cars that used a mixture of oatmeal and cement. Rats loved the oatmeal but then it hardened. Never tried it since it...

Re: Building my own complete wood kit for 31 Coupe

I absolutely love cypress. What have you done to be absolutely sure that it is dry? Cypress tends to want to move.

Re: Can this be worth the price?

Can this be worth the price?

I'm cleaning out my "stuff" in preparation for moving and came across a drill bit with a price tag that makes me wonder. I know I didn't buy this bit as my budget is more on the HF level.

Mike, you can scroll down and in the right bottom there are page numbers from 1 to 5, I think. Each page represents progress and you can see the finished car in the last page.

Is this a 36 bumper w/guards?

A friend found this bumper and guards and is wondering what it is for. To me looking only at the picture I think it could be for a 36 but I don't know about the guards. What do you think?
