I used the thickest 3m emblem tape I could get. Mounted the brackets then used a sharp exacto knife to cut around it. They have not moved in years.

Re: Weird, but interesting carburetor

Re: ford barn find

That's why our second Roadster is staying a standard. Plus it's an early 30 and the deluxes wasn't out yet. Black tires, black wheels, thinking about andalusite blue.

Re: Historical question: were wood-bodies cars doomed to an early demise?

Model A Fordor sedans were made the same way up till the 31 Slant windshield. These were cheap cars in the day, the wood was probably used from the crates that got shipped in from suppliers.
