Re: Brake Light Switch Backwards

It looks like something aftermarket installed to isolate the transmission from the frame, (cushion it). Maybe it's part of the float a motor I've read about on here?

Re: wiring

I've only replaced the harness for the lights, brake switch and horn, super easy.

I will get around to the rest but for now it looks pretty good. I'm surprised my car hadn't already burnt with all...

Re: Help Re-Wooding the inside of 29 Tudor

When the cars were being built as new, were all the wood pieces cut to the same sizes? Or was every car a custom as far as the wood?

Re: Cracked Block

So I took a grinder and ground off/out the mess the freshman welder made. Got back to the cracks and the new ones :mad:. Cleaned up a large area around that and slapped the JB Weld to it. I made sure...

Re: 1950 vs Modern Quaker State Oil Comparison

The roads while I grew up were awful compared to today's roads and vehicles with more than 100,000 miles seemed to always be worn out. It's very common today to see vehicles with over 200 - 300,000...

This covers it pretty well in my opinion. You can drive a vehicle that's hard for others to drive "UNTIL" they get used to it. You have to become intimate with whatever you are using to truly use it...
