Re: New Tires...going just a little crazy...

As long as the wheel spokes are welded you don't really need the liners. They do not protrude inside the wheel.

Re: Model A sculpture

To me the work is a little too crude. I don't mind caricatures but prefer a bit more finished work if I was going to pay those prices. Just my opinion.

I don't know if it's the same on the '30 but on my late '31 it's riveted to thefloor.

Re: Fit problem with reskined rumble lid

It might be something else. I bought a new complete lid and at first it didn't fit either but as I continued working the rear end (lots of rust) it began to fit better. Not sure what opened it up but...

Re: Sport Coupe Adjustable Seat

Re: 30/31 cowl lace

The cowl webing around the gas tank and the cowl lacing for the hood is two very different things. I'm going to assume the lacing for the hood. As stated above it really is pretty easy to install....

Re: Trunklid hinge prices

Are you using an original lid or at repro one? I found my original hinges would not fit the new repro lid I had. Not even close so new repro hinges are not likely going to fit an original lid. Mixing...

Re: Fuel Gauge

Are you using the correct tools? I'm ask because after the outside and inside nuts are removed there's really nothing much to hold it on. The old cork seal should come off pretty easy.

Re: Bolts rear motor mount to clutch housing

I took a box end wrench and ground the wall down just enough that I could fit it on the bottom bolt. Taking weight off the bolt may also help.
