Re: Wood blocks under cab are bad.

crosscut-I replaced all the wood cab mounts with a kit from macsautoparts.com. I ordered the wood,rubber shims and bolts. Everything Ihave bought from them is excellent quality and fits well. Replaced the top wood with a kit from macs also. They will send you a paper catalog if you want one. Radar

Re: want 1929/Early '30 radiator shell

these alum rad have the cap under the hood and no dummy neck so I have to figure out a way to mount the cap to the shell without drilling holes. I'm planning to leave the rad natural alum and put a stainless stone guard in front of it since I will be driving it alot Radar
