Re: Hot '53 Mercury flatty

Power anything: seats, windows, brakes etc.

"stainless steel spare tire cover in the rear." Are you talking about a Coronado kit? (see picture) Was this a Mercury or a Ford?

Re: Anyone still putting custom paint into aerosol cans

Just checked with two O'Reilly's stores and none do that in Colorado. Must be a regional thing.
