    Thanks for that info. I had never considered the lack of spare parts on the fall of the government.

    Unending patience

    JACK M, I see your point about shiny clear coat. If patina must be cc, a semi gloss finish could be better.

    Unending patience

    Jack, I think that the truck brings back memories and makes me feel good. I have many cars, some stock, some modified, they all bring pleasure to many. Is my 55 Ford a waste of time because I have a 302 in it?

    Painting Wire Wheels

    I use Axatla (DuPont) industrial Imron and it is NOT thin. In even it fills in light rust pits in the frame. It is very chip resistant. It is very funny stuff though. The first coat looks brown and is transparent, the second coat covers, and is BLACK! Put a third coat on a frame and it looks like you spent weeks sanding it. (always use a primer first.) You may have used Transtar, (a PPG company). We were given a gal. by the rep. and he had to give us two more to get the job done where one Gal. of Imron would do.

    Painting Wire Wheels

    Any good body shop could do it. Sandblast with fine sand, epoxy seal and finish with Industrial Imron. (Or powder coat)

    Frame Originally painted

    I modified this Essex and I was asked to bring it to the local Essex meet by the Local President. When I got there half of the people would not talk to me. I needed some parts and although I was told one guy had them he said he didn't.

    What? Ralph Nader didn't notice the rt. rear wheel off of the ground in the sales video? Definitely out of control (at least by his standards)
  8. I started driving when I was 15. When I took driving lessons at age 18, (my fathers idea as he wouldn't let me drive without the discount that the state offered for it) the instructor let me drive about two blocks and said that the other kids needed more time driving than me.

    Leather Hides

    Just a side note for those that want to obtain old used leather to repair a old original interior, Look in Craigslist for a old sofa or leather chair in the "Free items" You can find just the right wear pattern for your project.

    Got an old photo of you as a kid next to a car?

    My 1932 Huppmobile that I paid $35.00 for in 1958.

    Win The Mother Roadster!

    I tried to find out how old they are, and what percentage goes to charity, but so far not much info available. Note to The Mother Roadster Foundation. More info would help your ticket sales.

    Oiling a frame to prevent rust

    Thanks to all the replies, I went ahead with the heavy oil, time will tell.

    Oiling a frame to prevent rust

    I am considering filling one end of a frame with 600 weight oil and let it flow out the other end in an attempt to slow down the inside rust on a frame. Has anyone had good results doing this?
