Default Model A emergency kit.

I recently bought a model A emergency kit. It has all of the typical stuff like a small first aid box, pliers, screwdriver, Crescent wrench, etc etc.
It also has 2 cans of powdered water. My question is, what is required to
re-constitute this?

Arrow Re: Model A emergency kit.

This is the one I use, I just followed the directions on the can. It really saves a lot of space in the emergency kit.

I guess that would work ok.
I was considering trying deuterium. I would end up with twice as much then.

I bought one of those, along with 35 pounds of fresh air in case of a flat, and a small can of wheelbase grease. You can’t be too prepared on a tour!

Ensure you carry a bottle of Model A replacement smoke, just in case some escapes from your wiring while on tour.

I always forget to check the special brake fluid on a trip.

Be careful where you purchase the fresh air. The stuff you get from the vendors comes from China. It really isn't fresh. Better to find some NOS USA made fresh air.

I carry a can of “Whoop Ass” for the younger drivers who don’t have a clue about how fast a Model A is traveling.

What is needed is an "APP" for their Daddy's iDIOT Phone to assist them in removing their head from their a$$!
