    Sometime when you have nothing better to do research EPA, OSHA and your state's rules regarding painting at home. I will give you just a taste...It is illegal to paint ANY cars at home for profit. You can paint up to 5 cars/year as a hobbyist. It is illegal to paint ANYTHING automotive outside a paint booth. Don't believe me? Do your research or ask your local paint supplier when his next EPA/OSHA seminar will be held.

    Delco Knee Action Shocks!!!

    Are you sure they aren't lever action shocks rather than knee action? The two terms are often confused. '

    Wanted black lacquer car paint

    Black lacquer is still available from our local PPG distributor. Lots of lacquer still used in women's nail polish.

    Ring Gear RIvets

    OK. I get it. Like shucking corn. If the bolts move they will shuck their threads.

    "Shuck"? A new word to me. Is that like the PA Dutch "rutch" ?

    Be very careful when dealing with SMS. Sometimes what they do have doesn't exist.

    Does it even have to run?

    In a previous life I did archaeology at the Philistine city of Ashdod, 11 miles north of the Gaza Strip in Israel. Pieces of Roman amphorae as well as more common Roman pottery was so common that they were piled up and sold as road fill. We would take a piece of Roman pottery up to the staff archaeologists and they would say "That's modern" and toss it on the pile. The Romans shipped wine in large amphorae to their troops stationed in the area. Virtually every amphora had a type of stamp on the handle that indicated the year the wine was shipped making it easy to date nearby artifacts. We were interested in much older material, 1500 BC and earlier, before the invention of fired clay brick. Ashdod was one of the 5 Philistine cities mentioned in the Bible that received plagues. None of that locust or boils stuff for the residents of Ashdod. Their plague was hemorrhoids. But I digress... i i

    If you owned an irreplaceable Roman Amphora worth several hundred thousand dollars would you use it to serve your guests lemonade since that's what it was made for ?
