  • Decided to spend some more money....

    I rented a Penski truck and headed to PA today to purchase a '29 Roadster P/U. (Brookville) No more rust for me! The pictures are cramped as my garage is full. I will be doing the paint. I did some in a past life. It is really well made. Just waiting on two front fenders and need a seat. Top will come down the road....

          Nothing like a '29 body on a 28' frame, '30 motor and 19" wheels. I'll get 21" when the wife isn't looking ....probably not new. As long as they are round!

                    Looks great! It will be nice to not have to deal with the Rust. Good choice.

                      Seeking Advice: Paint and Rust Issues
                      by cpf240
                      My father bought this '29 Special Coupe back in '78. It was in typical barn find condition. At that time, a restoration was started, but never finished. From '80 or so onward, it sat in two different garages, one in Santa Monica, and then sat outside under a tarp in Costa Mesa for several years. So, it has had some salt air exposure.

                      My father didn't do the work himself, but my grandfather...

                      New Paint
                      by carolinamudwalker
                      When I was young I bought a new white p/u truck. An older gentleman told me to get a cement block & throw it as hard as I could in the bed of the truck. What does this have to do with a model A? Well I just installed my newly painted front fenders very carefully wearing new cotton gloves. When finished I tripped over the creeper that was stored vertically against the wall. Yep, it gouged that...

                      Too much catalyst
                      by BillLee/Chandler, TX
                      What happens if you use too much catalyst when preparing some urethane paint? How does the paint react? How does it spray? Flow out?

                      Picking up where Dad left off
                      by Brent
                      So, I've gotten the sheet metal including the doors, cowl, hood, etc. fitting pretty well. In general, I believe the sheet metal is in pretty good shape. Part of the car has been painted black lacquer and part of it is in spotty primer and filler...this was done probably 20 years ago by my dad. As I pick up the body work again, I was hoping for some help with my plan of attack.

                      First,...

                      Sandpaper, Pay More to Save More, 3C vs. 3M
                      by Tom Wesenberg
                      The A frame I built for lifting engines about 15 years ago never had a decent paint job, so I've been sanding the old paint and rust to give it a good paint job. A couple months ago I rode to H/F with my neighbor and had to buy something cheap to get my free flashlight. I got a pack of 3C (Cheap China Crap) sandpaper. It only works for a few seconds, then it kind of polishes the rust and paint. It...

                      Under Fender Care
                      by Paul
                      The season of salt is coming up. Before putting your A's away (I assume everyone has two), how do groom with stuck on tar, sand and the accasional paint chip under the fenders?

                      I wash with soap and water then wipe down with karasen. The rag instantly becomes gritty and it feels like I am scratching the hell out of it. Next I use soap and water let it dry, touch up spots with Rust-Oleum...

                      preservation
                      by Jim Mason
                      I have a late Tudor that I would like to knock down the surface rust on. I'm not going to restore it for some time, so I just need to knock the surface rust down, without removing the original finishes (what's left). I then need to prevent the rusts return. this process would be similar to the preservation of a low mileage original. what process is used on the low mileage cars for surface rust...

                      I know in the past I seen a post that had reference to a PPG or DuPont black paint that was very close to what the appearance of what Ford used. After much searching on the dark side I could not find it. Can someone Please post the brand and paint code number. Thanks Rod
