Re: Appropriate gas tank for 1922 Center Door Sedan

The center door tanks are square and under the driver's seat in the seat base. Early center doors had them under the rear seat originally. I have seen both the tapered top and the flat top. We have a flat top in our 1920 center door. Sorry I can not validate any part numbers.

Re: foam filled tires

+1 on using a sawzall to remove them. Remove the tube valve core just to be sure they are actually foam filled. Then be careful NOT to hit the rims when you saw. I might or might not have to cut them twice to get the off of the rim. They may be too stiff to get off with just one cut. Hopefully, you'...

Re: Chassis paint question

Thought must be taken as to the rustproofing put on a frame. It must be high quality to last, to adhere, and to prevent rust.

Joe,

On the PPG site, under Deltron, under Discontinued Products, it list your paint with code DDL as a discontinued product. There is an SDS sheet and a Product information sheet available there.

With that information, maybe you could find a matching color from another manufacturer.
