Re: canada body screws needed

Re: 1931 Standard Roadster top

Actually a standard roadster is more “friendly”
More room inside. Not as sporty
Besides there are more deluxe roadster Today than ford ever made......likely more roadsters, period

Re: 1931 Standard Roadster top

Back to the subject....

Re: Scrap Drives May Have Trashed Cars, But Were the Drives Necessary?

Second guessing history seems to be in vogue these days!
Let’s say it just never happened and it didn’t.

Re: Painting the body with or without the doors on

The main body color would be best painted with the doors off.
I would then mount the doors and paint secondary color with them on.
That gives opp to mate up continuity lines on revels, etc
