  1. door seals

    The U shaped stuff inside the door is held in with clips and a tab at the bottom of the door. The clips are also U shaped and then have a tab on top. At the same time as you slide it towards the bottom the clips will then go into a hole in the door.
  2. riding season

    Quite the contrast from my wife's bike that is so short there wasn't room for that style of water bottle holder.
  3. Who Is Actually Driving Their Vintage Mopars?

    My 46 pickup comes out of storage next Thursday so I'll be driving it some then. Likely it and the coupe will then sit a few more weeks until spring really settles in. The coupe is 120m away in WI so needs some decent weather to retrieve along with the dirt roads drying up from winter.
  4. "On the Road Again" with Phoenix

    then you run into the issue of collector insurance that will actually cover you when towing. be aware most won't
  5. They're still out there

    nope he's got the same plymouth car bumpers I plan to use on my 47 project!
  6. 1940 only 39 is different.
  7. They're still out there

    this one makes it look like a steal..... https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/csw/cto/d/1948-dodge-truck-for-sale-in/6500295123.html
  8. Plymouth P28 with Holley

    Dads 54 R series IH has one of those glass float bowl carbs. Not sure if it's original but it is neat to see.
  9. 39 dodge business coupe taillights

    not sure if the 39 dodge is the same but 39 plymouths were the first year the tail lights were in the fenders rather than on a stand. for plymouths those buckets were prone to rust and are kinda hard to find.
  10. Topping up gearbox oil

    Gotta agree here. I've had GL4/5 in my truck since day 1 and it still shifts the same as it did when I built it. The bottle does call out that it is safe for manual transmissions
  11. Me and the Meadowbrook

    You stopped right where it starts to get fun-putting the puller on and removing the drum from the tapered axle. You do have a puller right?
  12. connection on back of engine??

    that would be a 2speed auto powerflyte
  13. Wheel Size

    Way back I posted clips from a chevy vendor that guys were using.
  14. that is one funky air cleaner! Wouldn't mind having that. The manifold looks like it was intentionally sawed off-someone too lazy to unbolt the exhaust?
  15. Rear end swap issues

    I believe later cars(like our 63 valiant) had exactly that.
  16. Openings in Fenders

    HAHA one day I told my friend that really wants a 71 cuda that the gills on the fender made it look like a buick. He wasn't too happy with that!
  17. Chrysler A161 Prototype Hemi

    That hemi 6 was developed just after WWII and lead to the first hemi v8s.
  18. Thought I had enough trucks!

    me too me too!!
  19. Body / Engine Number 42 Dodge

    Anyone know if the serial # is stamped into the frame anywhere? I know on my 39-47 trucks the serial # was stamped into the left front frame rail.
  20. Back to the 50's

    GGdad and I usually park on Randall but he's usually farther up than I am.
  21. New 1950 dodge Truck to me

    https://www.amazon.com/Dodge-Pickups-History-Restoration-1918-1971/dp/0879384913/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1519697460&sr=8-2&keywords=dodge+truck+restoration+guide looks like it's out of print. I might have an extra one....
  22. New 1950 dodge Truck to me

    I believe that is how the restoration guide recommends it be done too. I did mine some of each with final assembly on the truck if I remember correctly...... hard to believe it was almost 17 years ago!
  23. Removing inner door handles, B1B

    does the inner pieces of the escutcheon move in? They should have the same pin arrangement as a car.
  24. "Ol Blue" Build

    that is a 39-47 or lowside box tailgate.
  25. "Ol Blue" Build

    typically I see 4 holes for a license plate. Not sure what would have gone on there with the 6 you have. Also if you desire you can buy a reproduction gate like that.
