  1. " I assume the hot air is exhausting out the bottom." Not that easy on an original car as they were fitted at the factory with fairly extensive splash pans installed between the frame and the engine. The gearbox and fan etc. have full covers under them. The sides and joints between the pans have leather gaskets fixed to them to seal the dirt out so they dont promote a good airflow.
  2. I'm with Mike. Isn't it great when a build gets to this stage.
  3. My thoughts exactly. When I watched it I though about the guy that probably loved every item inside that shed.
  4. I would say, get a power steering shop that knows this type of car and get them to do it. It may save you a lot of time and trouble.
  5. Just as a preliminary test push the cluch pedal down and mark where the clutch shaft gets to then remove the pedal linkage and push the clutch shaft forward to the maximum point with a large spanner and see if there is a difference. The clutch pedal ratio maybe wrong and you are not getting enough leverage.
  6. All nice but love the 8 litre.
  7. A few (5 - 10?) years ago Barry Wolk from Chicago rebuilt a Lincoln coupe and shared its progress here on the Restoration section of AACA site and the car was ultimately destroyed in a bad crash. He sent his car to an upholster in Miami ? ( I think) and the progress photos of it being done were about the best that I've ever seen. I belive that the name of the upholstery shop was Dan Kirkpatrick Interiors or similar. It could be worth checking them out.
  8. They were factory fitted on the Rolls Royce Phantom 2's up to 1935 except for cars being sold new in Australia.
  9. What is the chassis number and where are you?
  10. Try Glide Engineering Seats https://www.glideengineering.com/ Page 14 of their catalog and also Yogis Inc Classic car / Hot Rod parts supplies
  11. I'll go with Thunder Road also Left a big impression on me when I was a teenager.
  12. Phosphoric acid is an extremely good soft soldering flux on stainless steel, copper, brass and other similar materials. also very good for tinning soldering irons.
  13. Ask on the Ford barn site. Plenty of people on there would have done that and can advise you. www.fordbarn.com Go to the V8 forum
  14. One could only hope it's a Toyota of similar by now.
