    Best Vehicle Tarp for Barn Storage

    Make sure your car cover is tied down. I had one stolen that was on a car. I found a very small piece of it under the floor so I pulled on it. It seems that a groundhog thought it would make a nice winter bed so he confiscated it for his home .

    '57 Buick totaled in Hamilton, Ohio

    Not exactly true. Your insurance company has the right to take it for salvage, or to deduct it's salvage value from the payout on a total if you wish to retain it. (their choice) In Ma., they must get three salvage bids in writing to set the salvage value.

    At about a $40,000 value for the car, give it to me and I will fix it and have a real steal.

    Suchion Cup marks and Haze on New Windshield

    I had a haze on a new windshield and I washed it with lacquer thinner. Seemed to do the job after a rain X app.

    Cleaning a fuel tank

    After cleaning out a gas tank, you will need a inline filter. I use the clear plastic ones where you can see the build up of rust in them. You will be surprised how often you will need to change them. Instal them on the line between the tank and the fuel pump.

    opinions of what type of box to find

    16ga. for the sides, 1-1/4" tubing for the rail, 1/8" plate for the bed. 2" square tubing for the pockets and side posts.

    garage ideas/placement

    NEVER use pvc for air lines. It can explode and shatter you with pieces. Also, in case of a fire, it will melt and feed the fire with a blast of air that will look like a blow torch. I used pvc under the concrete floor to save money and someone decided to tighten the pipe that came up from the floor. It shattered the plastic under the floor and made the line useless. (had I welded a piece of steel across the pipe that was embedded in the concrete to prevent it from turning, it would still be working.) PS, water will also collect in the under ground pipe due to condensation. Water, air and elect. lines should always be installed so that you can service them and add extra connections as necessary.

    Auto Trunk

    When I was "restoring" my 31 Essex, I bought a trunk like the one pictured above. When asked by my workers what I was going to do with it, I said I was going to put it on the back of my Essex. They asked in disbelief, "your are going to put in on the back of a car? That's stupid" I said TRUNK? doesn't your car have a trunk? where do you think the name came from?

    How do you know sellers on Classifieds are legit?

    If you see it in Graigs list, it should be nearby you in order to drive over and inspect the part/car. (preferably in a public area) Only problem is, you should take a friend (preferably a muscle man) to prevent someone from stealing your money.

    1948 Chrysler Windsor problems

    53 New Yorker , I love the pic's of your 48 chrysler. I am looking at one now that is a 7 passenger. My friends are trying to talk me out of it as the cost of restoring exceeds the finished value by 2X. Please give me some encouragement to buy it!
