Re: 1928 will not stay running

Thanks Jim. You are 100% right. After coming so far with the car I was pretty discouraged. I will follow through on your suggestions.

28 Leatherback Windshield Visor

When I got the car to restore the windshield visor was painted. However I've seen many pictures with the 28 leatherback visor covered in brown vinyl to match the top. What is correct?

Re: Rubber Cushions on 28 Leatherback Windshield Pillars
