Re: 1930 rear hubs

He said to have a garden hose flowing and to be ready to immediately hit a cherry red nut with the water. I ...

That sounds quite feasable. Especially, since Henry liked to use stuff up.

Re: Rear leaf to shackle bolts

Stakebed: If you're truly going to use your AA as a work truck on a regular basis, then I'd install bolts that are the same hardness as the originals. Most AAers don't use their trucks as work trucks, and rarely haul heavy loads. Therefore, I can't imagine a bolt that's not quite a tough as the orin...

Re: California registration rule

ModelAkid & others: If the California DMV or other like state agencies want to see a VIN, do they really know where the VINs on AA's and A's are stamped?

Re: AA on ebay

Curt:

I'm beginning to believe that the majority of AA lovers prefer the squarish 28/29 cab over the more roundish 30/31 cab. Do you suppose this could have played into your sale? I prefer the more roundish 30/31 cab. If I wanted a squarish cab, I would purchase a TT. Just a thought.

Stakebed:

If you're not planning on carrying a lot of weight, I imagine your method would work perfectly well. And, should it not work out, well......great topic for further discussion.

Go for it!

I sure hope some local AA enthusiast buys it. It would be great to see it tooling around Ventura County!

Bob C:

That's what I thought they might be. I think raven finish would be the way to go, so as to not scuff up painted nuts and bolts like I've done. What's your spin?

Are the nuts and bolts in your photo painted black, or do they have some other finish on them?
