  1. Peter, thanks for the thought and reply. Nothing in my spam folder. The e-mail I use is Outlook. I did not even receive a notification on the replies to this post. Not sure what to check. Scott...
  2. As of this past Sunday I stopped receiving notifications for topics that I follow and there have been no changes on either my PC or my setting here on the stie. Where should I begin to look? I still get other normap e-mails from others outside of this site and I did confirm that my e-mail shown on the site here is still the same old e-mail I originally set up. What now??? Scott... I corrected this as I originally wrote that this was new yesterday and it has actually been going on since Sunday.
  3. All cars, buyers and sellers are not created equal. Some have a talent to find a deal, others have a talent to work a deal, and there are different things working in the background that will effect the deal. I know first hand that I end up with different deals than any of my brothers. I am guilty of having a passion for old cars and that clouds things at times for me, some of the stories I could tell. The point is that Matt's point that no two cars are really alike stands as true in that no deals buyer and seller are alike. That's just a fact of life as I see it and can never be upset if someone got what appears to be a better deal than I may have at a given point in time. Times, cars, deals and people are always changing. Scott...
  4. Joe, Sorry but I've no idea on locating the seat mounting hardware. I did have a collection of photos of wagons, inside and out, that I had saved over several years on my previous PC but they were lost when that PC self destructed. I know there are photos out there and I'm sure an owner that would most likely share some info/photos if asked. Good luck with this car, I think it has a lot of potential. Scott...
  5. Wow, what a real nice find, I have always had a thing for wagons. I don't think that you mention it but maybe you did, are the seats included/present? Scott...
  6. I powder coated my twin-I-beam front end on my '96 F150 when I pulled it all apart. That was about 4 years ago and I was just under it changing the starter and the powder coating I saw has really taken a beating. The interesting thing though is that I I painted a lot of parts with the POR15 and they are still looking pretty good. Just a first hand observation that I thought I would share. Scott...
  7. John, That workbench sure looks a lot like a service write-up desk to me and the placement sure supports that thought. Maybe after you get your lift installed you might consider doing a few side jobs now and again to offset the investment of the garage. It's all looking real good and I'm sure that you'll get a lot of use out of it as time goes on. Scott...
  8. Roger, all I can say is WOW!. Thanks for taking the time to piece it back together for the photo shoot. It really gives a sense of what all the time and effort has gone into. Looks great. Scott...
  9. Although I already commented on the skills/talent shown here on this project I am still wide eye looking at your update. To me this is the best kind of restoration documentation be done. Great job. On a side note though it sure looks like your building a car from a bunch of small shaped metal pieces, who'd a known that it could be done that way. Scott...
  10. I saw this link to a Craigslist ad for the 1937 Dodge Panel on another site I visit and thought someone might be interested in knowing about it. Scott... http://missoula.craigslist.org/cto/5015985086.html
  11. Roger, I saw early on that one option ensuring that I would be notified of updates was to click on the follow this topic at the top of the thread page. That is what I did to a lot of threads I had not replied to just after the forum upgrade. It works well as I was notified of the updates to the thread. But just the same there are a number of threads that I pretty much follow but have not or had no reason as yet to reply to follow. Just and FYI. Looking forward to the photo update next. Scott...
  12. I believe that the pedal is bolted to the floor with the nuts being removed from the bottom side...
  13. This is one major restoration going on here. Lots of hard work and talent displayed in your photos. I'll sure be one of manay following your project. Scott...
  14. Peter, I was only posting a history and what has transpired, I sure was not stiring anything up here. You cold have ended your reply with your first sentence of the reply, after all I noted maybe there was no happy medium. I know that you've been thru a lot and hope that it is slowing down some for you. Scott...
  15. Peter, you can consider this question answered. Thank's, Scott...
  16. Peter, I've see the small thumbnails which was part of the first conversion and threads that had originally been posted with a moderately sized were reduced to the thumbnails. The next change that occured exploded the photo's to their max size and those photos where they were loaded as a supersized but showed up as an attachment now showed their loaded size and ran off the screens in a number of posts. I see we have reverted back to the small thimbnails this afternoon/evening. I was looking at Barry Wolk's posts a short while ago in his 1942 Lincoln Zephyr thread in the restoration section, they were posted around 5:30 this afternoon, and noticed that his posted photos are what I expected to see return for all things. Maybe there is no happy medium? Scott...
  17. Peter, I had what was a few PM that I had kept and saw in the conversion to the updated software that the originally nested messages have now split out into individual messages and there are probably now a couple hundred or more. Is that how the new PM process will work, meaning that the messages will not be nested under a single topic heading? BTW, thanks for all the work you and your team have done on the conversion and I for one am ok with the new software, just have to get use to the differences. Scott...
  18. John, I know that you said that the panel was installed but I don't recall seeing the power has been run to the garage as yet correct? It looks like there will be plenty of light and power sources when done. Looking good. Scott...
  19. Very nice, it's really compliments the total look of the car. To bad the dealers aren't stocking these today...
  20. Dave, just reporting in to say that the seat pan arrived today. It also arrived in one piece too. Thanks again, Scott...
  21. Bored? No, but I can see where one could be challenged to find their patients within their impatience maybe expecting/hoping for more expiedant results, I can see where it might be tuff at times. The good news is that it will be great to have it ready to us as the warm weather really shows up. Still what a great work/storage space it will be...
  22. John, I don't care what your age is but I'd still have to imagine that you've danced around with excitement like a little kid at least a few times when no one's watching (maybe when they are who knows). I'm both happy and excited for you too just as other have already expressed. This is a project a lot of old car guys dream of doing, it's great that it found a way of coming to life for you. Looking forward to more updates as it all comes together. Scott...
  23. Jack, Thanks for the reply. It's good to hear that the tubes are pretty much the same other than length. I don't think lenght will be an issue as lifting the dog house lid gives pretty much full access so if the tube comes up near the top of the head it should work out fine then. The only problem is that we do not have a "U-Pull' type of yard in the area but I know what to look for now. I'll also take a moment to measure the tube to ensure I find one at least as long as the current/stock one currently there. Again, thanks. Scott...
  24. I've a question on the A727 Auto Trans. Are all A727 transmission dipstick and tubes the same across the different models. I'm missing the dipstick for my transmisssion which is in my '69 Dodge Sportsman van. I've been looking and so far haven't found a dipstick so woundered if the same dipstick and tube was used in all A727 transmissions. If it is I'll start looking for a replacement dipstick and tube. If it makes a difference it is for the 318 V8. Thanks for any info you can provide, Scott...
  25. Nice documentation of the disassembly, it will come in handy for anyone looking to attempt to tackle their own. Is there going to be a "Part II" for the assembly process showing the end result? BTW, you're doing a real nice job on the overall restoration. Scott...
