    Anti-theft devices

    Ignition kill is always good. I've worked in body shops for 25 years. Every theft recovery I've worked on had an alarm. Steering wheel locks like the club are useless, easy to get around. My 12 gauge or .45 barrel poking out the window is a great deterrent as well but you have to be awake to catch them for that to work.

    What Disc brake conversion to use on a 53 coronet

    6 cyl auto cherokees had 3:55 gears. Weld on new perches and throw it in. Perfect for what you are doing.

    1949 Plymouth clutch throwout bearing assembly

    Bought the whole deal ready to rock. Ended up with a spare. Actually, I will be ending up with quite a few parts that I don't want or need. Not sure where I should post them but I'd like to give them away for the cost of shipping. Original 3 speed, driveline, a complete rear end, intake and exhaust manifolds. I will be at the big Turlock swap meet in January too if anybody else is going. I'm willing to hold parts if somebody needs anything I have.

    I have one from my 49 that is getting a t5. I will give it to you for the cost of shipping if you want it.

    Rusty Hope, keep your factory wheels if you want to.

    Wide-Whitewall Radial Tire Choices

    My daily driver 59 F100 is on it's 3rd set of coker bias wide whites. Have never had any issues with the bias cokers. I drive it everywhere. Freeway, mountains, backroads, no issues. I've been getting roughly 30k miles out of a set. I make sure the pressure is always good and I also rotate them regularly. Never had a problem.

    Got my wheels back!

    Rimstrips for a bicycle wheel will work. Or cut an old tube apart, wrap it tight around the wheel and tape the end.
  8. I like shoeboxes, don't get me wrong, but around here, dime a dozen.
  9. There are no kits, that's the beauty of building an old mopar, you HAVE to build it. It's not a cookie cutter shoebox.......I have no problem with cutting and modifying any car. Free country and it's your car to do what you want to it. The biggest issue I see with your build is that you have no fab skills. You are at the mercy of a shop. Front disc brakes are easy, swap in a Cherokee rear. Pretty much looking at dropping it off at a shop and leaving a blank check. If I couldn't personally build my cars and bikes, I'd quit and take up golf. That's 80% of the fun.

    Best Way to Replace Floor Panels

    If you calculate how much time you are going to spend making pans, 800 bucks isn't bad. I'm not sure how many cars you have built, but this is damn expensive addiction.

    What paint to use on wheel rims?

    Powdercoat sticks like mad. Not sure what your experience with it is but from someone that has had to remove it, it sticks.

    What paint to use on wheel rims?

    I'm a painter by trade and think everything should be painted except for frames, wheels and suspension parts. Can't beat the durability of powdercoat.

    P18 Plymouth 1949 carb alternative in Europe

    Why even use the "primitive" flathead then? Just throw a way better, more advanced 70s or 80s engine in it. Nothing wrong with the Carter carbs, half the fun of owning these old cars is fixing what is there.

    Are ALL 49-52 Dodge fenders alike?

    Use your hammer and dollies. Don't heat the metal at all, let alone cherry red unless you are trying to shrink it. Best to support the low spots with a dolly and tap the highs down gently. Metal has a memory, it wants to go back where it belongs. If you do have some stretching, it's ok to heat it then quench it with a wet rag.
