Re: There's paint under there!!!

A few folks have used CLR with a scotch-brite pad to remove surface rust without damaging the paint. Wear gloves, do it with good ventilation, and rinse well afterwards.

Re: 1949 F1 ride into town to chase some parts

Nice ride.

So, it's a small enough town that everybody knows where you're headed without turn signals?

Re: A new car in the collection- thanks to 34fordy

That's a dandy little fleet. Like Don, many of us just want to know that our rides will find good homes after we need to pass them along.

Re: 6 volt battery, who has the best?

Re: Newbie but am I in the right place

Yes, you are in the proper place. There is a delousing process some may seek for non-Ford ownership, but that's a personal preference.

Tell us about the Merc.

Re: Seeking Info on a 1939 Tudor Sedan

As Jay indicated, avoid using abrasive materials on the stamped characters. Scotch Brite pads are the best choice.

Re: Mid 50s F-100 parts
