Re: 47 Truck Sliding Rear Window

I have a sliding window in my 39 pickup. I love it. the air blows in from the rear and pushes all the heat out of the cab. I don't know who made my parts. The local glass company cut the panes.

Re: 40 Merc under-dash switches

Big discovery!!
With a camping mirror and a better light, I could see the switch. The switch has a collar with on/off tab attached!!! Off is forward. When I get to start the car I will study more.

Re: Where do I go from here??

Join a local Model Club. Invite them over for a set and sip. You will learn a lot.

Get a copy of the lube chart.

Thee is also a check list for the car.
