  1. Check with Rick Botti and the Durant he is currently rebuilding
  2. I belong to over 30 facebook groups that range from speedsters, to farm machinery, steam cars, old junk, wood working, hit and miss, to old sewing machines, ect... Some of the same people are on each site. The one thing about FB is that you can see who you are dealing with and their name. There are scammers on FB site and as always you have to do due you own back ground check. When I started collecting cars Hemmings was a small 20 page book and now look at it. The hobby evolves with its members, but no one forces us to change. My grandkids think I am old fashion and they are right.
  3. n Try doing a 1923 Moon. Here is what I did with my Moon. I bought several sheets of foam board and glued them together. I used a electric knife to cut the patterns. If it doesn't fit just start over or do another glue up. When it fits then use it as a pattern .
  4. It looks like you have tried all the suggested ways so lets try out of the box. I don't know who is handling the bankruptcy. They may be able to tell you if there are suppliers who supplied this material. You may have to search for the suppliers but you may find one. You may be able to find out when their material is being liquidated.
  5. I get on facebook using a desk top unit or a laptop. My grandkid sitting next to me uses his smart phone. I have a flip phone and not a smart phone. When you get on the world wide web it doesn't matter what device you use. The web doesn't know the device or care.
  6. From what I remember from working on one it looks all there, The brass has been recently polished or lacquered. It is sitting in a trailer so I bet it runs. It is a nice car and should be on a tour. Nobody gets hurt at $22,000. Nice car he has.
  7. Some people like facebook while other people like the forum, The person who posted the information may not have talking about the AACA facebook but the facebook marketplace. This is not associated with the AACA but can have some interesting deals. Try this link . https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/104088996293267/vehicles/
  8. When I got my 1923 Moon touring car the bows were busted and full of powder post beetles. My problem was how to find the correct radius of the bows and determine the end length. I was in the process of making hoops to hold bird netting for my tomato and I was using 1/2 inch PVC for hoops. I used a heat gun to make the radius in the hoops and transferred that approach to making bows. I made up four bows out of PVC to simulate the bows using a heat gun to bend the radius. I then used these to simulate my top bows. I could adjust the bow length by cutting the PVC. It only took several cuts to get the dimensions I needed. Total cost $12 and I didn't have to touch the real bows until I got it right.
  9. When you go stop at Millers Bakery and get a donut.
  10. You missed it. Those are Canadian dollars and he does not accept returns.
  11. Model T have muffler wrap which I believe is available from, Langs, MACs, Snyder. Good luck. Jan
  12. Give the guy credit. I like it and she obviously does also. Looks much better then a rat rod.
  13. Try the "T" and "A" suppliers. Langs, Snyders see what the have and Hartz.
  14. feather fill. My head was stuck some where when I posted fiber fill.
  15. fiber fill or slick sand will work well for your need. Just do not go over board. Both are high build products.
  16. So the photos are lost also.
  17. Can that deleted post be brought back?
  18. A little more information might help.
  19. Sorry guys I did not mean to hijack the thread nor did I mean to violates any rules as outlined by our moderator below. Moderator " Administrators 283 6,180 posts Location: Tucson AZ Report post Posted January 10, 2006 Any post from a business that markets an auto related product should go here.

Note: Any commercial posts made in other forums will be moved here without comment. Anyone posting multiple commercial ads across multiple forums will have their posts deleted and be banned from future posts. Thanks for abiding by the rules. Peter P.S. It is ok for individuals to post cars and parts (includinng EBAY listings) into the buy/sell forums" I have always thought that the purpose of the forum was to inform. I always try to read the comments and reply and add something to the thread. Maybe I missed the section in Peters rules about treating the commercial section differently. Restorer32 offers a valuable service for those who need a complete set of bows and can afford it, I just wanted to offer a different direction or methodology. I will post in the technical section how I did it and my end results and leave it up to Peter if he thinks we need to change the rules as this section has a little bit of ever thing including real estate.
  20. I posted it to a FB speedster group.

    I used left over flat roof material (EDM) for anti-squeak body to frame.
  22. I wonder how he rebuilt the rear brakes. Wonder why no engine photos and where are the seat cushions.
