  1. Home Made Intake and Exhaust

    I'll second the video request. Glad you updated this thread. Otherwise I would never have seen it. Just went through the entire build. Nice work!
  2. Sbc in 50 plymouth

    Does that thing have to watch the load limit signs?
  3. Age Demographics Please Take The Poll...

    I can't answer this one but I'd like to.... would most likely be considered political.
  4. Age Demographics Please Take The Poll...

    I think the numbers in this poll are skewed. There would be a lot more percentage of oldtimers here if they weren't already dead! Just sayin'.
  5. water tube question

    Looks like the consensus is that it should be flared on the end to fit the opening, here's another "poor" picture of mine.
  6. 48 Desoto Project

    Realling looking good! With this slick new paint job, how does the interior compare? Show us some interior shots!
  7. P15 door hinge repair progress

    Steve, precisely, that's what reminded me of my experience on the lead weight. Wished I'd read this post before I worked on the weight. As stated, good information here from a lot of knowledgeable people.
  8. P15 door hinge repair progress

    I learned a lesson the other day about drilling lead. Didn't think much about it, proceeded to drill a hole in a lead weight for an old clock. First thing you know the drill pulls it's way down into the lead very quickly. (Thought it was going to suck me in with it.) Second thing you know you've broken the drill bit off inside!
  9. First restoration project

    Reminds me of my old F1 '52 Ford a few years ago. Seat was so bad all that was left mostly was the springs. My Mom found an old curtain and helped me fashion a seat cover. We stuffed some rags and padding inside and put the home made cover on it and held it in place with hog rings. About a 2 hour job. I drove it that way for a year or so before I had it properly recovered.
  10. First restoration project

    Yep, I agree with most of the comments here so far. You may have a daily driver before you know it. Get the engine running, give her about 4 barrels of elbow grease, and take her down the road!
  11. First restoration project

    Nice looking car. Looks to be nearly complete. Would be a great restoration project. California factory mid-year production, according to the serial number.
  12. 51 coronet d42 dash refinishing?

    If the majority of your dash looks as good as this, I wouldn't change it. Consider getting some fine tipped brushes and some matching paint and gently blend in the areas needing attention.
  13. Lurker coming out

    Yea, we like before and after pictures!
  14. 1947 Chrysler Windsor garage find finished

    This car's got me drooling! Beautiful! Interesting heater in a car of this nature. You'd think it would have a pair of the DeLuxe heaters. But maybe that wasn't necessary if it was originally delivered in Florida?
  15. Hey All

    Love the shiny paint, especially that grey one with the primer showing through on the hood. Obviously original paint. No orange peel in those old lacquers! She's smoooooth.
