    I would use a Post Office medium size flat rate box . I am pretty sure a generator will fit . The boxes are free and ship for around $15.00 regardless of the weight . You should do a double box because they will toss it around during shipping . Norm

    Most everything besides the Fordors were made in the Rouge plant by Ford. The Fordors could either Briggs, or Murray. The way I tell them apart, is Mur ry has two syllables and has the arched window openings, the Briggs are the straight top.

    Thanks for the input Ward and Rod. While I tend to agree with Rod that it might have been easier to just utilize the Tudor passenger vehicle glass in production since so much of it is based upon the Tudor front end, I am aligned with Ward that "Light Commercial" is still commercial according to the Standards. To that end, I think it will be best to utilize the Ford Script bug for the ...

    Marco, the welting is 1-3/4" wide overall. Good news is that no "pull strips" need to be stapled to the welt on the inside

    FYI, here's a photo of my folded and tacked termination of the welting at the bottom of the cowl. It does make for a nice, finished stop for the welt. (VFF reference link: https://www.vintagefordforum.com/for...bottom-of-cowl.)

    When shifting up, shift into neutral immediately as you are depressing the clutch pedal.
    Pause in neutral less than a second or 2 to let the motor revs come down, and gently shift up.
    Do not force the gear shift be very gentle.

    We have been discussing this offline, as you are aware, and I believe the front fender bracket pictures I sent are E28, but perhaps a version #2 - just when the flat fender reinforcement was discontinued. I am sure you will figure it out!

    I may not have moved throttle lever all the way up after starting. I know I did push up but not certain all the way. Not sure if it’s a multi clutch. I definitely did the shifting slow as I have been watching videos on how. Thank you for the responses I will have to check on all what y’all have advised me to check...

    Front Fender brackets
    by Steve Plucker
    Contained in the Standards is a list of about 10 Front Fender Brackets.

    I would like to put together photos of all these different brackets showing some of the detail of each.

    If you have any one or two or more of the 10 listed and could take some photos of each and send them to me, it would be most appreciated.

    Please send them to [email protected]

    One thing about these old monsters is that they don't like to do anything in a hurry. If you're not used to an 'A' then maybe you're just trying to shift like a more modern car. The above is good info, try slowing things down a bit and see what happens. From the time you depress the pedal wait a bit and then move the lever slower than in a modern car....

    Lowe’s has been selling a Craftsman metal 3 drawer tool box loaded with just about anything he would need for $100. I bought one to leave in Jesse’s car & there’s room to add a few more goodies in it if needed
