Re: Steering Column Rivets for 1926/7

It is important to look back on posts on this subject. The steering column is secured at it's base. The quadrant MUST be riveted properly so that the tube does not twist. If it does, you will get inaccurate and mushy steering. Very dangerous.

Re: FS 1926-7 hood shelves

Please, don't powder coat parts thinking you are improving the value or the quality of what you are selling. Powder coat cannot be spot repaired. If what you are selling is your interpretation of "install ready" and is not, the buyer must sandblast to remove the powder coat, repair, and repaint.

Please, no adjustable spanners! those are for the farm when we don't have wrenches. They are the cause of rounded nut and bolt edges.

I may have misread. I looked up Waddingtons Street rod and Restoration Center on Blakely Rd. Castlemaine Vic. Right below the street view photo the red bar says permanently closed. I apologize if I inadvertently created alarm.
