T cruiser. If you have driven your T coast to coast four times, have you ever had a chance to tell the rest of us how your trips went and what occurred on those trips. Please tell us. Thank you.

Re: Voice of Experiance Wanted

Under my touring it was a piece of cake. I am surprised a closed car is that hard. Now I need to do it under my speedster and I might need to disconnect the body. Wish you luck.

Re: Window, upholstery cleaner, and disinfectant.

It makes great Wapatooli. Ask any college student. Oh wait, I never touched that stuff in college. That was the other guys.

Get a bottle of glycerin and make your own hand cleaner, although I think washing your hands with soap and water does a better job.

Re: Speedster Tool Box

Looks great Brad. You will be able to go on long trips with that box. I do not think it looks too big. Just keep an eye on that hinge if it is not solid brass.

It is 1230 CST and just checking. Everything is slow to load, but that appears to be the norm, not just this site. The round dohickeys on the left are all the same color. No red anymore, so its a little tougher figuring out what post I have already read. I assume all the work Jeff and Chris did was ...

John,

On that red speedster you saw my son drive in Minnesota, I have a dizzy, no magneto, and 3:1 rear end. Any way you can make one work?

Thank you.

Re: Ebay and Corona Virus

In the pharmacy we always sprayed the counter tops and the counting trays with 70% alcohol. Do not use the 91% alcohol. The 70% alcohol with penetrate the cell walls of the virus better than the 91%.

If mixing aloe vera with the alcohol, use the 91% so your solution becomes about 70%.

Perhaps they could be put into the announcement section rather than topics. That would be a win -win situation.
