Part of the no car show side effect of the pandemic is that you are kind of forced into doing the stuff you have been putting off for years, last year and earlier this year it was interior trim, this time it’s painting!
The rear end of the chassis, ancillaries, lamps are all freshly painted.
Also added is the new to me 1929 Penna licence plate along with the strengthening of the original number plate and fitting reflector bolts.
Will be taking the A to my friend Simon’s workshop in July to get a number of “big” jobs done as I don’t have the facilities and space to do these at home. So to get things into a reasonable shape for the short drive I attended to a few things that had been on the list for a while.
With the other half’s measuring accuracy I fitted the posh number plates, adjusted the hub bearings, tightened up the seized bolts on the float a motor engine mounts, temporarily refitted the hardware to the odd sized front engine mounting including the broken spring!
After discussing the odd mount stud size with Mr Cochran we suspect that a new stud may have been welded on to the mount as a repair back in the mists of time. Might post a picture on the Ford Barn to see if anyone has seen anything like it before?
