Re: Open car rear view mirrows

I use the heavy brass mirrors made by Vintique on both sides. I had to grind the clamps to fit the 14 windshield frame and used inner tube rubber on the windshield frame to absorb the vibration. I really like them.

Re: Fun day

Thanks Dean, I feel better now because I have been using 20-50 and wasn't sure if it was to thick. Reading up on oil posts a guy can get confused. You put enough miles on a T to know what should work. I suspect you tried a lot of different weights of oil over the years to find what worked best?

Re: Why I like Car Shows.

Burger, Saturday I went to a tractor pull to watch and after I parked my 14 an older lady said "what year is it" and I said "take a guess" and she said "I bet I am older than your car" and I said "I bet you are not" then I told her it was a 14 and she was shocked and said "it got me by 25 years".

Re: OT spring has sprung at my place

It's spring in Minnesota now because yesterday I saw my first Mosquito. I had just gotten done spraying the last coat of clear on a Dodge truck hood and there it sat, right in the middle of the hood. Monday I will have to sand and buff it out. I guess there is a bright side to -30 degrees below zero.

I would just drive it the way it is. Stay off the salted roads in the winter and it won't get any worse. I have seen things people cleared over and years latter the clear started peeling. That makes a big ugly mess and very hard to fix without doing an unwanted restoration.
