Re: ABS warning light

I had a similar issue. It was the big 30 amp fuse that had blown. Mine was under the hood in the fuse panel there.

Re: Harbor Freight changes

If you donate items, why not increase their value so you can write off a much larger dollar value on taxes?

Re: sandblasting chrome rims

Second on Brians suggestion. Chrome shops remove all chrome before re-plating an item.

Re: Shoebox Brake Drum replacement

My '50 has drums just like the last picture you posted so I think they sent you the wrong ones. If you dont get any satisfaction from them, try Shoebox Central. Good luck.

Re: Chrome Shop Recommendations

I used Northwest Chrome in New Plymouth, Idaho last summer. I feel it was excellent quality. Cost is in the eye of the beholder. They did what they promised and was a short turn around in my opinion....

Re: Did I finally find a GEM?

Very nice. I do believe the mats are original but I wonder about the red oxide underneath. Neither of my 50's have that but having said that, this is the straightest club coupe I have seen!!
