Re: Battery options - 1925 Tudor Sedan

I found this optima battery box to look like an old style battery.
I had to enlarge my battery holder in the car,
Looks original in the car and performs Great,

Re: Fordite steering wheel repair

Hi again,
I made a jig to hold the wheel.
Started grinding out the seam crack to fill and sand.
Other than a horrible smell and lots of dust, seems to be going well.
Looking forward to the end result.
Thanks again for all the info.

Re: Fordite steering wheel repair

Thanks R.V. for the info. That looks like a nice steering wheel you have there. The wheel I have is the only 15" Fordite wheel with a forged spider I have ever seen. Now I can say after seeing your wheel. That's the only 15" Fordite wheel with a pressed center I have ever seen. Hope to have mine ful...

Re: Fordite steering wheel repair

Thanks R.V. Anderson for the photos. The outside of my wheel has a line around it like yours. Looks like you can see the inside material of the wheel. There is also a line or seam / crack on the inside of the wheel. This is what I was going to cut and fill in an attempt to make it stronger or last l...

Re: Fordite steering wheel repair

Yes,
I have searched Google for Fordite and came up with old automotive paint...
I have also read about it in Bruce McCalley's Model T book.
What is your experience with grinding on it.
Does it melt or cut / grind easily.
Thanks,
Randy

Re: Fordite steering wheel repair

Thanks Henry
I didn't know how this material would react to being ground on.
Looks like sawdust down inside the crack.
Thanks,
