Re: front fender brace straightening

Mostly 29 light bar is straighter than 30-31

Re: NOS paint thickness

The biggest culprit I’ve seen is overloading the substrate

Load it up and chips in months. Too much of the new...

Re: Replacing Roadster Door Lower Seal

The hammer/screwdriver is about what I’ve done
Heat gun could get paint and upholstery assuming it matters

Re: Model A Beltline Variations?

The doors are the same
So something else is wrong with all this
Sure you’re not mixing up 28-29 and 30-31?
Belt rails do have different shape so should be evident

Re: 68C and A400

I make them out of aluminum and polish. Small screws mount them from the backside
Originals were plated pot metal.
I don’t really know what water plating is.....maybe I live under a rock!

Re: Nitrocellulose

If you have the paint and it’s been stored properly, why not use it? Maybe I’m misreading that you had paint but no longer have such?

Re: Model A Victoria

The USPS used to give a lesser rate if it was a magazine or book; don’t know if that’s still exists. I wouldn’t pay $14.50 either; that should mail for $6+-

Re: 31 slantwindow

Vicky doors are wider
Inner won’t work.
Nobody makes a decent outer. The outer bead has a slight arch in it rather than straight
