Re: Translucent banjo steering wheel

I have used Quality Restorations out of San Diego for several steering wheels. The work Dennis Crooks does is phenomenal. He's not cheap, but once I received them I realized it was worth every penny. He recasts the steering wheel using your original wire frame. In my case, two 1947-48 Ford steering ...

Re: Blond deck stain

If you are a Danenberg devotee he recommends a "recipe" of 8 parts natural filler stain with 1 part Minwax Golden Oak.

Unless you know the NAPA Echlin part numbers specifically it's a real struggle getting a car parts store to help, which I learned early on. Easier to talk to someone who knows what your looking for and may even have NOS

Re: Engine bogs down past 2,100 RPMS

Does an Occasional Tank of Premium Help Keep a Car's Motor Clean?

However, the hull card indicates that the original light was a KM-32. Having contacted Iva-Lite they told me this is not an Iva-Light designation....

Anyone Misplaced Their Rudder?

Rudder Pic 1.JPG Found this in the bottom of a 1953 18' Riviera I am restoring. The original rudder log was intact in the boat and the original rudder was lying inside the boat - although quite bent.
