  1. Finally I had success this weekend. I got all the tires mounted, inflated, and installed safely. After seating the non-notched end of the rim, prying about 180 degrees out from the start point did the trick. Then I just followed the rest of the rim around until the whole thing clicked in. Stepping on the rim with my foot seemed to help a lot as I went around too. Thanks again, Dave
  2. Thanks for the input. I will try some new techniques this weekend and let you know how I make out. Dave
  3. This is my first time deaing with split rims. What is the best way to get them back on once I have my new tires seated on the wheel? Any specific way to bend them? Thanks, Dave
  4. Hi, I'm 21 and working on restoring my 1925 DB Touring car. I'm on the gas tank and was wondering if anyone has any tips on cleaning the inside. The outside of mine is great and cleaned up very nicely. It was covered in layers of paint which protected it so now I've got it down to the clean metal. Seems very solid from visual inspection. From what I can see inside there's a nice thick brown sludge sitting in the bottom and moves like molasses when I tip the tank. So far I've tried several days of dumping in lacquer thinner and letting it sit overnight which seems to loosen and liquify so
  5. Hey Thanks, that's a huge help! Dave
  6. Where wood spoked wheels specific to model years or were they pretty much the same for a few years around 1920? What model years will fit my 1920 touring car? Are there different sizes I need to watch out for. This is my first dodge project so any help I get is greatly appreciated. Thanks Dave
  7. I'm going to be looking around for a set of fenders for my 1920 touring car. What years, if any, besides 1920 will fit this car? Thanks Dave
  8. Hi I'm 20 years old and recently got a complete 1920 Dodge Touring Car in need of total restoration. It had apparently been sitting since 1946 or so in a barn in Texas. I live in central Massachusetts and you never find a car that has been sitting like condition this is in. The body is great, nice and straight and solid with just surface rust. I have the top irons but the wood bows are mostly gone. I'll need to find some patterns or something for those. It doesn't run at the moment but the engine does seem to turn over freely. Both front fenders are in really rough shape (looks like it
