  9. Kick panel resource

    I just found these guys. They're almost in my backyard. I may ship them my split door sill rubber pieces. See if they can build me some new ones. http://www.runningboardrubber.com/
  10. Flush convertible top cylinders

    My 55 Ford used brake fluid too so all I done was to take it completely apart and blow out the lines and moved the cylinders to remove all the brake fluid and reassemble,I never flushed with anything and its been 10 years and so far no problems.

    Picked up a "new to us 1951 Plymouth Cranbrook" for a steal. Did find old registration in glove box with same mileage currently on the car, so who knows how long it sat. Miraculously drained gas , rebuilt carb, changed oil, and battery and life returned. Does appear to possibly be the original 18000 miles, by the very little wear on interior parts. Could use some body and paint work. Will be keeping as original as possible. Been lurking around and figured it was time to introduce myself. Have found quite a bit of great information here. Thanks for your help.

  16. New to Forum: 1949 Plymouth Business Coupe

    I use Gmail and Google Images. It works awesome. Its free. Lots of online storage. The pics are easily shared between computers, iphones, ipads whatever. I have no reason to consider paying for online photo hosting services.
  17. Upgrading a 50 Chrysler

    Thinking about getting another 50 Windsor and if I do its going to get a 360/727 along with disc brakes and a modern rear end,are there anyone making mounts and a disc brake kit and what rear end would go in with minimal work. Also looking at 46 to early 50s Plymouths too so would it be about the same except for a shorter engine compartment.
  18. Coffee cup holders

    Stainless steel, boat style. Folds away when not in use. ...but I think Don might be on the right track.
