Re: King pin replace

True, But that applies to all phases of restorations and mechanics.
Part of the fun of having a Model A is being able to do your own work.

Re: Frame - is it straight?

28/29 is different than 30/31 You can check for straightness with a tape measure and a long straight edge or long level [ 8']or a string line.
