  1. The club will be sending you a trophy. Congratuations you deserve it.
  2. George did you catch this listing. 1920’s Daniels radiator for sale. Sold - Parts For Sale - Antique Automobile Club of America - Discussion Forums (aaca.org)
  3. See if you can get a copy of Chiltons Catalog and Directory (1929) and it will have in the back a listing of piston by manufacture. My book stops at 1928 but it shows the same piston from 1922 to 1927.
  4. The price of plating and the [poor quality available today.
  5. I ended up going to Lucas in California that had ten in stock. I purchased five and got them in two days. Now I hope they don't fail me. I appreciated everfybodys help and I need to get them installed. Jan
  6. Thanks for everyones suggestion. See if I can find a Buegler.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Worked at Harrahs for a summer, 1965 when in college where I met everyone into cars at the time.
  10. Thanks everyone for there input and it looks like another addition.

  14. Did you know that "BONDO" is a 3M trademarked name.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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. .
  18. 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.
