            Thanks fellas!! It is nice to have something workout to keep the fire burning!! This should be the last thing that needed attention...my neighbor owns a restoration shop and is giving me a hell of a deal to make my novice paint job look showroom. Really nervous about installing fenders and all once painted. Then all that adjusting I read about doors and hood....stay tuned for that thread. LOL

              Get all your fitting and adjusting done before the finish paint! Maybe I read your post wrong but just in case!

              Aford, yes I bolted rear fenders and used heavy clamps where side aprons and front fenders meet. All lined up with running boards. (small gap in the curve of fronts but the beading will fill) I will do it again as Gas light fenders dont have predrilled holes.

                Mr. Beauford,

                How about your family celebrating with a real authentic Model A "King Pin" Party ..... celebrated with nothing else but a real authentic "King Cake?"

                Just search on line for a New Orleans Bakery that mails authentic "King Cakes", always at least up until 40 days prior to Easter.

                Easter Sunday is never in the same month, or on the same date each year; however, it is always celebrated on the First Sunday, immediately after the First Full Moon, right after the 21st of March.

                Wow ...... perfect timing .....a Model A "King Pin" Party celebrated with an authentic New Orleans, Pre-Mardi Gras "King Cake". LOL

                  Prior to baking this brioche type of King Cake, (shaped like an elliptical type of do-nut), they used to hide a tiny pink toy baby inside this cake.

                  The cake was sliced, divided, and placed in individual plates.

                  The person who got the baby had to buy the next King Cake.

                  Because of today's litigious society with a probable law suit filed for someone choking on the toy baby, commercial bakeries place the toy baby inside the King Cake box, but leave it outside of the King Cake.

                  However, you could most "definitely" hide your large King Pin inside the King Cake and the person who got the King Pin could buy the next King Cake plus pay postage for same. LOL

                Beau once that axle is back in the car did you put the weight of the car on the spindles and check to make sure you can not turn those topbearings?

                  Chief, not that far along yet. I will get it in this weekend. I learned a trick. You can put a floor jack under spindle to achieve the same pressure and check that bearing doesnt spin. I'm gonna add two shims per side.

                  Yeah balls are in decent shape to last my time with it and I have new tire rod and pitman rod. My box is completely rebuilt so every thing should be smooth once assembled.

                  True blessing to have this guy up the street. Had to force money on him for his help. Guy can fix or make anything.

                by Beauford
                So we are trying to sell our house and have a contract on another that is up in the air due to the current owner being over greedy. Getting our house ready for the market next week has been a full time job over the last month along with long work hours and the little ones. So caught a break and decided to put on my Ken Davis shocks. Putting the rears on you have to remove drum. Most of you know I...

                Got my wires done yesterday.

                15 X 8 to back and 15 X 6 to front onto 35 wires to fit on my 28 pickup.

                Can't wait to get back home to paint and fit them.

                Mitch, I could not get any pics of the process and the guy shooed me out of the workshop, as he said the boys were not happy with my presence there last time.

                No drama, ...
