Some model T's like to mark there territory when they are parked. When they do it on your own driveway then it is not a problem,but when they do it on your neighbour's clean driveway than you can have a problem.Two members of our club made a [diaper] for that. Last week I made also one, and here are the pictures.
Toon...damned good idea! Think I'll copy that and have one or more made up...before you patent it!!
P.S. As you no doubt know, Doug got the '16, drives nice, looks nice, I think he's real happy.
Do you get out and get under after you drive the car, or do you drive it with that on?
Norman : We drive it with that on !
Tim : Is Doug not angry on me that we put him in the[ model T world]
Wow after all these years, a new accessory for the Model T Ford!!! The Model T will never be housebroke, so it needs diapers.
Very nice! Much nicer then a sheet of cardboard under the car at a show.
Sometimes I wonder if my '14 is out of oil when it doesn't leak oil after stopping. The "T" just don't leak oil.
Very nice, I have copied the info to my T files. It looks like (from your pictures) that you could add a "dart" to the front part so it would be less of an "air scoop"? (Dart, as in sewing a blouse to allow for the, uh, female anatomy--this is a family forum!) Yes, this does complicate the sewing a little bit, but your edge hemming looks professional, so I have no doubt you could do it! Or would this complicate the installation? (Hmm, your pics seem to indicate a tension adjustment needed on your sewing machine--but this is not meant as ANY criticism--pictures can be misleading!)
So, will we see this in the next Lang's Catalog??
David : Sorry before I made an other accessory for the model T, I have to study the anatomy of a female.I did not sewing it by myself .
That is very close to what they put on the horse cabs in NYC !!!!!!!!!!!!
Herb, thats funny.
I can't deny it is a good and functional idea, just seems a little embarrassing for Lizzy to have to wear that in public.
Can you imagine the advertising?
"Are you tired of making excuses? Can't get those embarrassing oil stains out? Kicked out of another parking lot? Well no longer must you suffer the humiliation, thanks to "Fordipes". Daytime oil spot protection made for Lizzy to keep her running fresh and clean."
At first I saw the diagram and figured it was a coffin.......
Toon, een "dart" in dit geval lijkt een "figuurnaad" te zijn.
In 2012 we drove our car onto the stage of the Muny Opera in the play Thoroughly Modern Millie. Realizing that dancers and oil on the stage don't mix I diapered my car at both the engine and the rear axle. It was kind of strange to see the car parked back stage with no oil drips beneath it.
What a neat opportunity! How many nights did it run and how was the weather for the shows?
There is nothing so powerful as an idea whose time has come!
Toon....no, I think Doug's happy as a Lark. Heard he and his dad were also already considering a TT stake truck, needs a bit of resto. So not sure if they'll tackle a project or not. This '16 was "ready to go" other than a little work underneath the top. It does drive nice, took it for a short spin when they got to town with it.
Mark, we were there 11 hours for rehearsal Saturday, then the show ran Sunday through the next Saturday. The weather was hot all except the evening of the first Saturday that rain cut the rehearsal short. Yes, after 11 hours ran cut it short.
We had a drive on at the beginning of the show carrying 4 dances on stage Then at the end of the show carrying momma on stage. We were on stage just two and a half minutes total. It was quit a ride. This was back in 2012.
Looking ahead to patenting, advertising and making Anthonie an embarrassingly large pile of money, one must, in all seriousness, consider a catchy name for this clever invention. I'm thinking along the lines of something like "Dripper-Slipper," "Oiler-Foiler," or "Grease-Grabber." C'mon! This could work!
Perhaps it could be marketed through entertaining, RONCO-style infomercials on TV. Oh, I can just hear it: "... But if you order right now, we'll send you not just one, but two 'PUDDLE-CUDDLES!' That's right; you get your second 'PUDDLE-CUDDLE' rushed out to you absolutely FREE!!! (just pay separate shipping & handling)."
Oh, this is gonna be big! I hope Don Lang is listening.
Hmm, Bob, I think you're close--but we need to piggy-back on a popular item--so how about "Puddle Snuggles!!
'Darting' about looking for 'cover' (puns intended)
PS Dick, still can't 'translate' your posting!!
Toon, did you ever 'figure' out what I was alluding too? (egads, bad sentence structure!!! )
David, I looked up the Dutch word for "dart" in this context. (It wasn't one I knew, but now I do.) "Figuurnaad" means "dart" or "tuck."
This thing is severely lacking. It needs a cup to gather the oil, and a pump to put it back in the engine.
Either it needs the pump Ralph suggests or perhaps a disposable absorbant liner? Sooner or later the oil is going to need a place to go.
Oiler-Foiler gets my vote. It even sounds ole timey. Just need to make a vintage advertisement for it with faded sketch pictures, a cursive-scripty-western looking font for "Oiler-Foiler" and a guy with a mustache and bowler hat winking and shooting with his hand in the shape of a gun.
This will work if your car is a LIZZIE, but what if he is a Henry?
looks like you have one heck of a sewing machine! take us through how you made it/where you got the materials.
New "Fordipe", now with sanitary, replaceable "oiler-foiler" insert. Available in either bra or brief form, to cover engine/transmission or differential areas. Where ever you need leak protection.
Well, with "Oiler-Foiler", you can use the Ford script!
and of course you'd advertise it as the DEPENDable solution!
How would one use this item with RM brakes?
Mike : I use disc Brakes.
