    That is a Model T Ford size tube. Call Don Lang at Lang's old car parts. Bob

    I need a brass/steel stem which is long enough to fit a disc wheel.  The Model T tube that Lang sell is 3" and I need 3.5. per Lang  "This is an original style, heavy duty inner tube for wood wheels only.  Bias ply with a center brass valve stem, Stem width .5”, Stem height 3”  Does not include the mounting hardware." per Langs.  I also tried Snyders and I mounted a tire before I knew I had a problem

     

     

      Interesting that I m still connected to Coker after two hours with the same message.

  2. I have called Coker three times to chat about tube stems and nobody has picked up on the chat line,  Placed a separate call to customer service and left a message.  It has been 5 hours and no return call.  Does any one know what is going on.

     

    Does anyone have any 30 x 3 1/2 tubes with steel stems for sale.  Need four for my 23 Moon.

    We've seen TV auto restoration episodes that show them applying a smooth creamy like auto body filler over a complete panel and in some cases over the entire car. Very easy, and dusty sanding process to achieve a flat surface. What is the product that they use??? Thanks, Jakes 😁

    I have to point out that these shows are poor examples of how to do body work.  Bondo has never been intended to be put on thick.  These are not body men and probable don't own a body hammer or file.  Look at them as entertainment not learning exercises.  They are not restoring cars usually hacking them up.

  4. When I did my 1923 Moon I purchased several sheets of foam insulation and gluded them together,  I then used an electric knife to cut the patterns.  Cheap and if you overcut or come up short you can just glue the piece back on.  I have a full set of T plans, don't what year but they are available.

    John we need to look at all the steps you have to go through to get a car ready to paint to answer your question.  I am not an expert but here is what I have been taught to do and follow.  First if you are an old painter you have had to learn new steps,  When you start on a car body you need to prime it.  Twenty years ago you would metal prep a car with acid, then put bondo on, prime it and paint.  Paint companies started offering primer with acid in it (Variprime) then you bondo and painted.  This was and is DTM (direct to metal) primer.  Now we have Epoxy primer (2K) which the manfacture tells you not to prime over acid products and they will not warrant there products.  Next you would use Bondo to fill small creases and then you use a primer.  If you have rust spots, or pin holes you use a glazing compound (Rage, Dolphin Glaze, 3M Platnium Plus) or you can spray a high build primer like (slick sand, feather fill) followed by a 2K primer.  Then comes color.  My picture shows each product in the order of use.  This is why a paint job costs so much just in materials not counting paint and labor.

     

    What is the difference between Bondo and glazing compound.  The glazing compound is very thin and has a very short working time usually 2-3 minutes where the Bondo has a much longer working time around 15-30 minutes.  The product they are using is a Bond type product.

    We know the 1931-32 had the Freewheeling, the overdrive unit is not factory, so based on having a PB engine in a PA and some modified Overdrive unit that did not come in 1931-32 Plymouths for that matter 33 and 34 Plymouth’s had no Overdrives So I would surmise it was not restored that the car was conditioned at some point, but probably should be sold as a nice Driver, but would never be a Senior winner with a PB engine Good luck with your sale, It still would make super nice fun driver.  I know my 1929 U  Roadster and My 32 PB Roadster are fun I can do 63 mph with my PB silver dome four banger

    Cheers

    I appreciate the comments and insight.  How else are we to learn things.  I know what is correct on  my cars and what is incorrect and I have no problem if someone pointed it out particularly if I would be selling it.  Thanks for your knowledge and insight.
