  1. I need a brass plating shop to plate a number of small pieces on a brass car I'm doing. I thought it would be like finding a good chrome plating shop....but finding out it is far different! Chrome plating shops won't do it and color consistency, environmental issues and just plain pricing seem to be the issues. My "go to" chrome plater won't touch brass and even suggests going with gold plating...which even at the extra cost, doesn't look exactly like brass! Has anyone had good luck with a brass plater that they can recommend and what is typical turnaround time and general pricing?? Thanks! PS. I'm not referring to brass restoration, ie. headlamps, etc. but actual brass plating of non-brass parts.
  2. Looking for the wheel brake cylinders and master cylinder for a 1961 Rolls Royce. Are there any US based parts houses that carry these and other 1961 mechanical parts? Thanks, David
  3. Need Oval Gas Tank

    Yes. I'm looking for a larger diameter tank than what they offer and have resolved to have one special made.. Thanks, David

  5. Need Oval Gas Tank

    Looking for the person that is making oval gas tanks and the "dogbone" filler caps for a speedster project of mine. I've heard there was someone in the midwest but don't have contact info. Can anyone help? Thanks!
  6. Prairie Auto Porcelain

    Finally was able to talk with Tom, owner of Prairie, and he had been a little under the weather. They are going strong and I was impressed with his knowledge of the "art" of porcelain coating. He'll be getting the manifolds I need done. Thanks to all that weighed in on this thread. David
  7. Prairie Auto Porcelain

    Does anyone know if Prairie is still in business? I've tried calling the number listed in Hemmings for several weeks only to have to leave a message and never get a call back. Looking for a reputable place to have a couple manifolds porcelainized. Thanks, David

    Thank you!
  11. Looking for a craftsman/shop that can fabricate a speedster body from the firewall back, including the seat buckets, rear fenders and the oval gas tank. Prefer someone located in the southeast US but will travel to the right person. Previous speedster experience with references a must. This was a large 131" wb car from the 1913 - 1915 era. Thanks, David

  13. Still looking for drive train and body parts for a 1913, 1914, or 1915 short wheel base touring Stevens-Duryea - particularly need the following: rear seat cushions, robe rail and foot rest for back seat area, tail light and cowl lights (1915), engine fan mounting pedestal, carburetor, gas tank gauge and switches (pressure and on/off), rear luggage trunk, etc. Any and all leads considered. Thanks!
  14. I'd agree - with the lack of response, I'd suspect it was a fishing expedition.
