Re: Fall 2020

Fall is coming to Western Ma also. 45 mile foliage ride yesterday. Fun on the back roads where no one is pushing you. That is our 9 year old foster child (also our great grand daughter).

Re: 46 ford glovebox

MY 46 super deluxe has no glovebox lamp or any place to mount one that I can figure out. Are you confusing the dash lights dimmer switch?

Re: 46-48 interior panel

Thanks again Ryan...

Re: Post war brakes question.

Yes those springs are strong. Just did a front brake on the 46 pickup. With the right tool it is easy. Here is my old Craftsman plier. Plenty of leverage from the long handles.
