  1. Up here in Canada we have companies that will repair that sort of damage. The one I use is called Fibrenew. They will repair vinyl leather etc .Do a google Seahawks in your area. Cheers pete
  2. Maybe able to help you out if a 1930 and 1931 coupe are the same. That is for a 3 window coupe. Where are you located?
  3. Go to ebay on your big computer. Click on advanced top right. It will give you options to search for. Choose completed listings. Type in one of the badges eg 1929 Viking. It will come up. The seller has 19000 odd sales to his name and lives somewhere weird in Saskatchewan. You can then search the seller. Erica
  4. Terry ,wow I do like your part store.Would you please post some more pictures? Thanking you in advance pete
  5. First let me congratulate you on using the correct name! It is not the ring gear which is found with the pinion. When I worked in the dealership used six inch long bolts to take the place of the original bolts already there,remove the torque converter bolts, all bell housing bolts and trans mount bolts,then slide the trans back on the six inch bolts ,use a pry bar between the flex plate and the torque converter to help.You then have just enough room to undue the flex plate bolts and remove the plate. Doing it this way keep the tranny in line for reassemble and you do not have to undue cooler lines,shifter etc.. It was called the flat rate way. When I started my apprenticeship I was told first you learn the correct way to do the job then when you are good you can use the flat rate way. Cheers pete
  6. Are you sure this car was not originally supplied with Goodyear’s? Isn’t U.S. Royal an after market tire? There should be a date stamp on them somewhere Cheers. Pete
  7. Yes always try to get the best for your money.This took 13 years but, did I learn a lot .Anybody know of another 1912 McIntyre? Super rare ,but not a big buck car.cheers Pete
  8. Pull the switch out,then reach under to the body of the switch and and depress the spring loaded button and at the same time pull out the knob.Spring loaded button opposite side to the wiring connector. Hopes this helps.cheers pete
  9. Word of mouth,networking in a circle of like minded people.Don't expect this to happen overnight,it will take years to establish your credibility .Many try ,few succeed,because they want instant gratification . Once you have established that you are a honest and sincere hobbyist you will be amazed what is available to you.It does also help to have a machine shop in the basement. Cheers Pete
  10. Lump, you should try Marmite from the UK and you would be even more convinced what makes people drive on the other side of the road
  11. https://windsorstar.com/news/local-news/90-years-later-ghost-shipwreck-at-bottom-of-lake-huron-in-remarkable-shape Thought you would all find this interesting.
  12. Be careful with horsehair. We stored some in the basement and then got an awful lot of clothes moths. Found the bag was full of them.
