  22. Can anyone recommend a shop to upholster a early 1930s classic car ? Looking for New England ,PA, Ohio areas. Thank you .
  23. There was one in S Lima NY (the next town over from my hometown) when I was a kid. It was a one car garage and as I remember the table was 10-12 ft diameter. There was a about 4 ft lever near the entrance of the garage that I don't know what it did but I would guess it was a brake or a lock of some kind. The property was sold in the 1980s and it was discarded unbeknown to me. Today all that survives is the steel track that the rollers ran on in the concrete. Another item that was on the wall was a electric battery charger from the 1910-20 era . Sadly its all gone.
  24. Bob, It appears that Mike is connecting the exhaust hose to the end of his header that he has made. Its no secret that on a unaltered Franklin the temperature of the exhaust is going to be considerably lower at the end of the tailpipe that coming out the header as he has it. He needs to add a temporary tailpipe of some kind if he wants to use the hose. To prove my point ,one can without concern hold your hand over the end of the exhaust with a tailpipe in place , but would be burned quickly as shown in the pictures. The car looks like its going to be a lot of fun.
