  1. Can't ever seem to get them to pick-up the broom.
  2. Good to plan ahead. If you don't have one get a mixing cup to measure and mix the paint components accurately. The cups are cheap and many places include them also with the paint purchase. Thanks for the reminder, I have a 78 FXE that I need to paint and put back together.
  3. If that is the same car looks like someone has taken good care of it from just that picture.
  4. I found they are usually marked in one or both of these spots with this style number stamp. First pic is the top and second is looking from the bottom.
  5. Back in the day of these trucks maybe cruise was a usable option but not so much now, be nice to find an old owners or sales brochure that calls out the intention. I thought it could be useful also if using the hand crank to start or adjusting RPM of the PTO as others mentioned. My farthest left of the 5 locations is a switch controlling an under the hood courtesy light that is mounted to the firewall. Not sure if it was original equipment.
  6. Ed mine has 5 as well with key in the middle. Just looks like they didn't drill for the 5th location but the room is there and that would give it 5 with the key in the middle. I just pulled the picture from a manual an suspect now it may be military model based on the panel light knob and extra throttle cable. My truck has the extra throttle located as 1 of the 5 locations right of the key that is centered.
  7. Found this pic in a manual I picked up. Shows the lower section off to the right of the main gauge panel. This is close to how my truck is set-up in that area.
  8. Just one comment. When testing make sure you mix the paint with any reducer & activator as applicable for the paint you are using. If not, you can't be sure you won't have a bad reaction without those solvents and hardeners. If your first-time shooting take advantage of the test panel by giving a sand prime and shoot to get your settings on the gun and increase your comfort zone.
  9. When I disassemble a new master or wheel cylinder I wipe down all components, inspect them and coat the bores, seals and pistons with the Sil-Glyde before assembling each assembly. The intent is that the silicone grease be a barrier between the parts and the oil/water from direct contact and forming rust. Metal is porous so even small amounts of the silicone grease filling those pores should in theory slow the process of rust starting there.
  10. I assumed some rails would be in the plans to contain the load. Was thinking along the lines of a lawn chair cushion or foam at the bottom of the basket area to help absorb the bumps. Could even have plywood cut for the top of the foam if a firm surface is preferred. Another option would be a suspension system from the rails. Those baby trailers I've seen used suspended seats from the rail systems so the children are floating rather than sitting on the solid surface connected to the axle. That helps soften the ride. Think carrying an apple bouncing around in a bucket verses carrying the apple in a suspended sack.
  11. Ulu, That trailer needs some suspension I think to help the eggs over the bumps but looks like a great start. I made some good buys using CL, FB and Ebaa so I vote used as well. Plenty of folks buy them and after once or twice then they sit in a corner kind of like a treadmill. T120, That is a sweet ride you found. Does it have a generator or battery for the lights?
  12. Both good looking trailers. Sounds like the price was right
  13. Your friend with the body shop can steer you on the best methods for the repairs so bounce your plans off him to help get the best results. Good to have someone you know that does this for a living. When testing paint with thinner pick a spot like on the old running boards in case it reacts badly since you won't be using those or a spot you won't see. For that area on the cab above the fender I would usually pull the tape line used during priming and wet sand to remove the hard edge there and move my tape up higher. That leaves some space on the old paint where I sanded lightly to allow the new paint to fog in that area and lightly overlap to the old paint. Once dry I can then wet sand with super fine paper in that area if needed to blend the old and new paint so any difference in color is not so apparent. Again though your friend may have some better way to manage that area and improve the final job.
