Wink Re: Synthetic Oil?

Good one! Upon scientific investigation in the southern hemisphere oil drains clockwise as opposed to counter clockwise for those in the northern hemisphere. Hence the gravitational pull sucks oil...

Re: Fordbarn Shirt, Poster

As stated in post #10 it's very interesting and entertaining to view this up close and from a distance. The composition was well thought out and I hold it in high regard. It's also admirable that a...

Re: Fordbarn Shirt, Poster

One more from slightly further back. Perhaps V8Coopman can enlarge it. Anyway, you get the idea. It's very interesting and entertaining to view. I recall the art world got publicity when this...

Re: Fordbarn Shirt, Poster

The poster was masterfully composed of hundreds
of small pictures members submitted. They were arranged based on color to emulate the stars and stripes. I took some close ups with my minimal skills....

Re: Fordbarn Shirt, Poster

Thank you Marcus.
It would be interesting if any members whose cars are on the flag would post that information. Might be fun to start a list of participants if there is any interest. Just a...

Re: Fordbarn Shirt, Poster

Pulled them out of the closet. Lighting isn't good for the flag. This is what's on the back.

Re: Fordbarn Shirt, Poster

Holy Cow! I have 2 of those posters in mint condition. My Dad must have bought them as both our '32's are in/on it. They've been rolled up safely in the closet all these years. Dad passed in 2016...

Re: dull paint

Hilarious! Off topic but my brother is a '32 Ford guy. Period. Whenever he comes in close contact with my '49 Nash he puts a paper bag over his head. For those with long memories recall the Unknown...

Re: dull paint

I don't drink hard liquor either. Dave Mckenna jazz piano on Youtube might help. Seriously, I'd like to know what has developed over the years in paint chemistry. Surely there are some crackerjack...

Tinker. Calm down and have a sip or three of some Stravinsky. Pre-war.

Re: dull paint

Indeed ol'timely cars is what this site is about. I fully recognize AND appreciate that. What I'm getting at is automotive paint has been here from the beginning. I've read about lacquer back in the...

Re: dull paint

Interesting juxtapostion going on. GB Sisson recently posted a thread titled "Whose gonna fill Their shoes". So an '85 Crown Victoria is now 35 years old. In 1970 a '35 Ford would have been 35 years...

Re: Back to the barn with a '38

Got to agree with you Tinker. Unsurprisingly when I went to get grease for the travel trailer the "Disc brake" grease was more expensive. That's when I wondered why and did my research. There's an...

Re: Back to the barn with a '38

I recently went through the same dilemma when I repacked the wheel bearings on a 1959 travel trailer. Best I could tell after doing some research was the disc brake rated wheel bearing grease is...

Re: 1933 ford Victoria

You guys are the greatest! Now I see it. Thanks for the education. Comparing to my Avatar '32 it's easy to see the difference.

Re: 1933 ford Victoria

I'll take one on the chin for the team of the ignorant. I don't know the difference between a skirtless fender and a skirted one. Can someone explain or post a pic?

Re: Looking for a place in NJ that does vibratory tumbling

Interesting use of equipment. Dad had a vibratory shaker that he used to clean brass rifle shells. I remember it was very loud and it took a lengthy time to polish the shells. It was smaller that a...

Re: Looking for a place in NJ that does vibratory tumbling

Out of curiousity I looked up a few similar machines from industrial supply companies. These are for the bigboys. One would have about 4 to 5K into it before it was even powered up. That $60 in...

Re: There's paint under there!!!

What a coincidence. I'd seen that episode some time ago and by chance it was on again yesterday and watched again. Misstring, if you haven't seen it you might be able to stream it? Worth watching for...

Re: There's paint under there!!!

"Body shop jail" is hilarious! If I attempted body work I would likely end up in Body shop prison. Life without parole. Metal work is hard. Give me wood work. Any chance you could post a pic or 2 of...

Re: There's paint under there!!!

Thanks Gary. My personal philosophy on restore vs. keep as is or modify: If there is enough originality to merit restoration then it should be restored to original. If it has been repaired, damaged,...
