Re: 39 Ford Mercury hubcaps in pictures

Mercman,
They don't seem to be made from another cap, they look factory made.

Re: 39 Ford Mercury hubcaps in pictures

Here is a set of 39 logo caps on my A. Logo is the same as 39 wide 5 cap, but they are for normal 16'' wheels???? They are not stainless, they are steel.

Re: 30/31 coupe door question

Thanks Lindy for checking . I thought that the brace being curved would be correct, because if you look across the door the curve matched the curved edges of the door. When the brace is straight, it...

Re: Hairline Crack

Eagle43,
Check with Irontite. You can talk to them and see what they say. Different type of plug than Lock & Stitch. They are cheaper and you don't have to buy a kit.

Re: Coupe windshield header sealing

Thanks for the link and the drawing. I guess I have all I need except a piece of welting for the top of the windshield face panel.
