Re: Installing Roof

Excellent observation. My headliner is only 50 years old. Most of the history was spent inside.

Re: Installing Roof

There are books around that explain the process. The main thing, I believe is to have a helper, work from front to back, and go slowly. My plan involves marking off the center line of the material,...

Re: 1925 Model T fordor top

My plan is...

Re: Were T's black only?

To answer your title, let us not overlook the "Improved T" of 26 + 7. I haven't the choices of color available.

When most were pining for a new version of Ford. ( the most popular car brand )...

Re: Changing front spring...

A friend of mine once insisted that I understand the importance of unhooking the battery when changing bands.

Re: Model T in Roundabout

My practice always, was to take off with a stomp on the slow pedal, at the same moment I open the gas valve full. As soon as I hit say 10 MPH I knock off the gas and release the slow pedal. From...

Re: Is this radiator worth recoring?

I just looked on Snyders site. They want $825. Seems like an easy decision. Ask them about the brace.

Re: LogoLites stop&turn...

Thanks for the post. I hope to be able to get to a place where I can do this.

I never drive at night. The style of driving in the rural areas here needs this.

Ah 3 cents, I am aware that you drive nice and easy. You still will shorten the...
