  7. Meet "Toby" my 50 Model 51 project

    When I removed the tank it was empty. Hard varnish residue which was cleaned with pool acid and degreaser edging the metal. Read all positive reviews on the product. Label reads resistant to fuels and alcohol products.... better be for $23.00 a pint! thanks for your feedback, confident that it will do the job
  8. This is my next project after finishing The 54 72R that took me 4 years to build. God only knows how long this one will take but it needs a lot of work specially sheet metal work. Don't know much background on this car other than The car was acquired at a local auction in Florida and traces back to Ohio. It has an old BCA sticker so if the previous owner or someone else in the forum recognizes the car, please let me know Al

  13. Meet "Toby" my 50 Model 51 project

    Purchased the hoses locally so I could match them, the lines were all wrong and different diameter so I have to send them the originals so they could duplicate them. This is the second time it has happened. Did not learned the lesson the first time & dont know why I keep going with these guys. All good now
