Re: 40 turn signal options??

I think the confusion came in on the LED part. LEDs will be voltage specific, where the one tj was referencing is not LED so changing the bulb works

Best source for glass?

I need a left Quarter panel window for my 40 Deluxe Sedan. Where is best to get this? What is in there is still the factory glass, but some has cracked and fallen off the outer part of the window.

41-48 heater installation.

Anyone have a copy of the installation manual for these heaters? I figure since I have the holes in the firewall, and the parts I may as well put the heater back in.

If not a manual, pics...

Re: Radiator Cap

Non pressure is good to know. The gasket on mine is looking rough, but if it isn't sealing pressure it's likely not as big of a deal as I was thinking.

I was thinking...

Re: Wheels, would like opinions.

So,

I would like to find 16" wheels, preferably 6 inch or so wide. That way I can keep the original look and actually put a little bit of tire under there.

Re: Wheels, would like opinions.

I wish I could blast surfaces only, but the wheels are too rusted. several don't really have any paint left. I will probably have a local paint supply color match the car so they look right.
