Another plug for Bjorn Larson at The Old License Farm. He fixed me up with a plate for my '46 pickup, when nobody else could.

Re: How to repair damage to a deck

I'm thinking epoxy won't take the heat in that area and will eventually fail. Silver solder doesn't work well for a filler. Brazing with bronze rod may be the best method to fill it without...

Re: How to remove steering wheel? (1938)
