  1. You should get a split rim tool from ebay where they are available for around $30
  2. Where are you and what is the price and best way to contact you.
  3. Make sure you paint it with a good quality hogs hair bristle brush,
  4. I tried the products without the methyl chloride mention and they failed my needs. I was in the process of stripping a hood panel with a product from Lowes called Goof off. I had one half of the panel stripped and ran out. I went to lowes for a replacement and they said they no longer carried it. I bought a gallon of Kleen Strip and tried it on the remaining panel with very little success. The part of the hood I had stripped with GOOF OFF took 45 minutes the Kleen Strip left on for four hours and it still didn't remove but one layer. I took it back to lowes and they had already had three returns that week. I called the GOOF OFF customer help line and they said it was off the market with no replacement and recommend Aircraft Stripper which was available at CARQUEST. I went to my local CARQUEST and they were removing it from their shelfs and they sold me there last two gallons.
  5. Most of us use paint remover but how many of us has heard of Methylene Chloride. It is the product that makes paint remover really work and is toxic. Without it the remover it is very weak. I have been purchasing paint remover from Lowes, Home depot, ect. but got a surprise this week. All the big box stores have removed it from inventory. The only place I could it was Advance Auto and they were removing it from their shelves. If you are going to need paint remover in the near future you better get it now.
  6. No body suggested a bumper jack, thank god
  7. IK have some jack stands made from old ford banjo rear ends that are quite sturdy but I still wouldn't trust my life to them.
  8. Sounds like it. I would sell him a new car.
  9. You might find what you need here. http://antiqueautotophardware.com/
  10. Probably more parts then I find for my Moon. Looks very reasonable from the picture.
  11. It was Glytal and it was supposed to make the oil flow better. When I raced I did it but I am not sure it did anything. One old timer said it kept the engine from rusting. That sure didn't make sense.
  12. where there is a will there is a way and you found the way.
  13. One of our member had the material and sold it o me. Thanks for you input. Jan
  14. Nice looking truck. I wouldn't let it out of my sight.
  15. They used to make accessories which spread the leaves and then allowed you to lubricate. I have tried the Teflon strips and they look weird. Have not tried the chain lubricate but I will try it on my moon.
  16. When t I got my 1930 Buick touring I started removing the interior and found leather loops originally designed to hold glass bottles of shine. No moonshine but the engine did have a split manifold an dual carbs.
  17. I purchased mine from S.W. Stutzman, Peebles Oh, 937-386-3368 "community Carriage & Leather". Another company is Witmer Coach in New Holland, PA. I chose Stutzman because my bows had fallen apart, they could order the correct radius, and they were located an hour from my home. I also wanted to talk to them amount some interior work. Witmer Coach, New Holland, PA are vey good as is Mels. Hope this helps.
  18. I just ordered new bows for my 1923 Moon touring and now I need to get top material. Does anyone have about eleven yards of stayfast. Black outside with a tan inside. Thanks Jan
