Re: Got a note from Dave Huson Today?

I talked to Dave this morning. Other than his lift stuck in the up position. He is fine.

Re: Vintage License Plate Vendor - Colorado Plates?

Update. I commented earlier about getting my plates restored. I just got the plates back from the restorer and am very happy with the outcome. It did cost $90 for the two plates, plus $10 shipping, but wow. What a job. Both plates had nail holes in them where someone must have "hung" them on a barn ...

Re: Vintage License Plate Vendor - Colorado Plates?

Here is the contact info for the plate restorer I use. I assume he does other states, but don't know. He has a "real" job too, so he does this on the side. It might take a little time to get it back to you. https://photos.imageevent.com/bellemeade/plates/websize/6128958D-8DEE-4F08-A5F9-BDA14A0FA80A....

Re: Vintage License Plate Vendor - Colorado Plates?

Harold, I have YOM plates on several classic cars, in Colorado. I just put a standing search on eBay for whatever plate I'm looking for The latest was "1922 Colorado Plate". It took some time to have a matched set come up. Lost a couple in a bidding. Picture below of what I got for $70. I sand blast...

Head Issues

The '22 center door I bought in September leaked coolant out the front of the engine so I went in to replace the head gasket. This is what I found. I'm new to Model T's but besides no copper sealant used, what's wrong with this picture??? :lol: https://photos.imageevent.com/bellemeade/modelt/websize...

Re: 26 coupe windshield glass removal

Keith,

I did a post a while back on how I removed/replaced the glass from my center door. Should be the same, or similar windshield. Link to post below.

Re: 23 center door rear window install

Cory, I just finished replacing all glass in my '22 center door with safety glass. I used MAC's p/n A19003R for the rear window. The Lang's part is listed as 1923 to 1927. It is probably ok, but the "new" 2 door came out in 1923. The back window is a different shape, not oval like yours. But at 80" ...

Re: 1922 coupe window channels

Galen, I just replaced all the original glass in my '22 center door with safety glass. The issue with the reproduction channels, that I found, was that the new stuff is thicker and better made (I got mine from Snyder's. I'm sure they all sell the same stuff). The channel I took out was just felt. Th...

Re: Closed Car Windshield Removal/Replacement - Update

No one answered my post so I thought I would post how I removed/replaced my windshield. Right or wrong. I used a 2x4 and a hammer. Put the windshield on a heavy, padded, table. Placed the 2x4 on the glass at the bottom of the frame. Tapped the 2x4 against the frame, until the glass started to separa...

Closed Car Windshield Removal/Replacement

I have a 1922 Center Door. I have the new windshield glass, but I am having trouble removing the old glass. I cannot free the glass from the thin channel that is holding on the windshield frame.

Short of braking the glass and taking it out in pieces, anyone have a better method?

Re: Seat Belt Install

Allan,
Thanks for your post. I have been thinking about angle iron to the frame setup as a solution. Good to hear you had some success with that setup.

Re: Seat Belt Install

Interesting discussion. I will find a way to install the seatbelts. I believe staying in the car is safer than ejecting. There are circumstances where that won't be true, but by enlarge staying put would be better, IMHO. I am also replacing all glass with safety glass. I installed seatbelts in all o...

Seat Belt Install

All, New to the "T" world. But I bought a 1922 Center Door and I would like seat belts. I bought a set, then looked at how I was going to install them. Backwards I know. Lots of wood on the floor but not a lot of stout metal to hook up to. I know someone out there has solved this problem. Could anyo...

Re: Old Car Festival videos. Gaslight tour, daytime tour and Model K’s go off road.

Great video! I was there last year and it is an amazing show. Nothing else like it. Long way to go, pulling a trailer with my car on it. But worth it. Cannot go every year from Colorado. Going in 2022 with my 1922 Center Door for its 100th birthday.
Thanks for sharing!

Re: 22 Center Door

Dave,
I didn’t look into this car because it was too far away. Then it goes to the UK! Funny. It is what I’m looking for. Would you mind letting me know what it sold for??? (In US dollars lol)
Thanks
