Gasket board save

Post by Dropacent » Wed Dec 04, 2019 11:58 am

A shout out to brother Dave Hanlon and his daddy for saving this piece. He sold it to me nearly 2 years ago, practically gave it to me because it was in shreds, and actually in two pieces. The fact is, they saved it until I brought it home for some TLC. It’s made of some sort of very early homesote , with a rag paper artwork and bare steel hangers. It wasn’t meant to survive a decade but it did. It has survived a hundred years now. I don’t really want to think of the hours I wasted but finally able to hang and fill up with old gaskets. Another shoutout to Larry Gresh, Joe Bell, and again, Dave Hanlon for providing me with lots of worn out and shrunk gaskets, perfect for display. Thought I would share.

I saw the before, I'm surprised it made the ride home at all. Nice job Tim

I have an original Ford green one. It has no place for 4 dip pan gasket. Did they ever make one?

It’s yours, Dave. Set that $20 aside for me. Of course, you can pay the labor, too. I’ll add it up and get back.

Very nice. My favorite projects are like this project. Bringing something back from the dead is always a good feeling.

Tim, thanks for the kind words. I wish you wouldn't have reminder me that's it's been 50 years. Time sure does fly by. As far as keeping things simple, someone wise (who I'm sure never road in a Model T ) said "Keep it simple and focus on what matters. Don't let yourself be overwhelmed". Confucius

I’m thinking about 3 days labor Tim....at HF wages of $5 per day, sounds fair. :D
