Re: dot 3 or dot 5 good and the bad

What is a good universal mechanical brake light switch to use? I was looking for one at the parts store and most of them were too model specific.

Re: Has anyone ever seen a dealer tag like this?

While in SoCal for the GNRS we stopped by The Early Ford Store. Their patina '32 Roadster was rolled out on the sidewalk & it had a brass dealer tag on the firewall from Hollister. I don't recall the...

Re: 1932 Sport Coupe special parts

Sorry, this is the first I've heard of Jim's passing. He used to stop by the shop and we would swap '32 stories. It seemed he knew everybody that had a '32. Did they already have the estate sale?

A lot of information on the HAMB. Deuce Daddy Don in Bend has blueprints for frames and roadster quarter panels. I haven't seen any other prints for other panels. Jerry Kugel had Marcel's build him...

Re: 32 ford roadster question

If the car has no history or famous owners I think the channel would knock it down 30-50%. Gas Monkey Garage found a nice channeled 3 window. Went all out with a new frame, paint, interior, but...

Re: 32 Ford Frame question

It seems all of my '32's have had numbers problems. First one 40 years ago had a strange N CAL xxxx number on the title. It was a valid Oregon title, had no problem putting it in my name....

Re: Nameplate restoration

What specifically is the part. If they repro it, that is probably the best deal. I'll presume you are asking about rechroming the part. For any given shop you will find customers that rave about...

Re: Flatplane/Norden/Cross Fire Crank????

Bruce Crower "Crower Cams" ran some 180 degree cranks in his Bonneville stuff. Don't remember if he ever did a flathead. He did run some other unusual engines.

Re: 32 Parts - How to tell Original from Reproduction??

Original bumpers are spring steel, the heat treating leaves a distinct pattern and texture on the back side. These bumpers are smooth on the back, leading one to surmise they are cold rolled repos.
