Re: looking at a restored 36 ford coupe

It's like if you are a golf guy. If you quit playing golf you can't get your green fees back. But you had fun! Most times you even up or more if you fix it a bit and buy well.

Re: Major brake adjustment procedure request

If you are really worried about your brakes have the shoes been arched to the drum?

Re: looking at a restored 36 ford coupe

A old saying is a car is only worth as much as someone will pay. I'm surprised all the responses to an arbitrary post with no info. You can buy a nice original 36 for 38K. So the next question is...

Re: 6 volt adjustable voltage regulator?

I say go for it. It'll work or it won't. Gimmicks are a dime a dozen. If it works well! or it doesn't. if your only reason to use it, is it is different, doesn't mean it will not work... Not saying...

I need to paint my hood. When I remove the latch again I will take lots of photos. No promises on timelines. I used to have pictures of assemble before. That was a while back. I usually take things...

Re: 1932 AAB Duce, Dulley, Dump

Keep in mind when making changes what you will be using it for. If your plan is to scream down the highway and go to wallyworld or to go to some shows, tool around and have fun. But I have a feeling...

Re: Can this be welded?

Re: Cosidering juice brakes

Sounds good. What is the point of it all in restoring a vehicle if every time we just upgrade it to the newer thing. Opinion or option. Have a good night Bill. I respect your opinion.

Re: Cosidering juice brakes

Like I mentioned my 38 before and after.

Re: What are these adapters for ?

GB, post counts are something we all value and really respect. It's why we are here. Irony is implied.
