    aftermarket radio and speaker installation

    or else you could take the Fairly inexpensive route that I took, I upgraded my speaker in the same location, but used my original 6 volt radio and I bought this handy little Dandy off of eBay, I actually bought it for one of my other cars, but I use it in all my antique cars so I can use their Factory original radios, it's an AM transmitter it works on a 9 volt battery, and all you do is tune in to an unused radio station on your AM radio, and then fine tune the transmitter, you can plug in a CD player an MP3 player or anything else you want and I just throw it in the glove compartment with my MP3 player, that way you have kind of an authentic sound since it is playing through your original radio, and that's what I look for in my music https://m.ebay.com/itm/AM-HOME-STATION-RADIO-TRANSMITTER-FOR-1-MHZ-MEDIUM-WAVE-FOR-YOUR-RADIOS/332122290954?hash=item4d5407fb0a:g:WRgAAOSwfVpYnwIJ

    Will 7" vintage mopar rim fit my 1948 Dodge coupe?

    I ran 225 70 15s on the front and rear of my 48 p15 with 15 x 7 Mopar police wheels, with absolutely no problems, and the back end sat pretty low, the car did have Volare front clip though

    moving along a little bit further, I figured out my accelerator linkage problems today, so now the carburetor butterfly opens all the way instead of just a third of the way like it was before, the guy had all kinds of nuts and bolts and spacers and washers all rigged up on the linkage, it was the stupidest setup I've ever seen, I am going to have to rebuild the steering box, and I think it needs kingpins too, oh well I'm into it for almost $10,000 now, what's a few more dollars

    Yes the upper frame Mount is still there, but it has a GM rear end in it, and instead of the shock mounts facing inward like they do on the factory rear end they face frontwards, so I either need to fabricate some new lower shock plates / mounts, or just do what I did for temporary, and then weld in across bar above the rear end and mount the shocks to that which is what I plan on doing

    yeah, I plan to Weld a cross brace across the frame above the shocks and then Mount the shocks to the cross brace, when I get back down home, where I can work in my garage

    here's how I mounted the upper part of my rear shocks, there's a plate on top and a plate underneath the floor with the floor sandwiched in between

    P15 steering options

    I did find one on Summit Racing for a 1961 Ford Galaxie, I wonder if it would work

    P15 steering options

    I can't find that part number anywhere on steering wheel adapters, any chance you want to sell that one

    just wondering if you had a chance to try out those adapters
