Re: 1930 Model A transmission oil change

Most auto parts stores have a cheap plastic pump that is inserted into whatever oil container your working with. Run a tube of equally as cheap hose from the pump to the trans or where ever.

Re: Need some laquer

As a final, went to TCP and bought a quart of PPG lacquer. $190 including shipping. Will paint floors in DCC and spot and finish in Dura Cryl on the body.
Thanks All,
