Re: 29 rear spring mount

my two cents: Cut the old one out and make a new shaft to weld in. If it is 'bent up', that sounds like a major bend / issue. I'd rebuild it straight.

Re: Spare Tire Location

Put it up under the back of the bed where they go originally. Get the hanger and bolt it on. Original and looks appropriate.

Re: rear view mirror and california registration

My understanding is that If no interior mirror, because of blocked rear window, then two outside mirrors are required. ( this is for modern autos). I'd do what Neal said. Do what is requested in a non-destructive way to the truck, get the paper work done, then remove it.. Suction cups on windows, ma...

Re: rear view mirror and california registration

I used a auto interior mirror. (from a 28 a) I mounted it onto a piece of sheet metal, then tucked the top end in around the header panel and the bottom into where the header panel mounts into on the bottom. Mount the mirror as low as you can so you can see thru the back window. The original style f...

Re: 1929 AA truck cover

cheapest is a tarp. But what ever you get be sure it "breaths". You don't want condensation to build up and rust and rot every thing. I did that with an antique garden tractor and ruined just about everything. Make a 'tent' over it. sort of.. I don't know of any on the market.

Re: My 28-29 AA title says 31

On my '28 the number stamped on the frame is Just in front of the cab. On top of frame. easy to see. I wire brushed the area and highlighted with white chalk. And there the number showed up. Give it a try, you may get lucky and it won't be under the cab.

Re: IDEAL RPM 28 AA WITH 5:17 REAR

if it is not shaking and or knocking you should be good. With a non-counter balanced crank you'll know by the shaking it is too fast.

Be great if I had a seat and the cab mounted on the frame and a bed to see around :P I may just make all the parts and do the final welding in a few years. Not sure how I'm going to finish part of it yet...
Or ! take it and fit it to someone else's truck.
