Re: Paint chip repair

If the old paint is thick, or the chip took out the primer, you need to build up the surface to make an invisible repair. I've had really good results using spot filler to bring the surface up to just a hair lower than the level of the old paint. Then go ahead and dab on your touch up paint so that ...

Re: Ignition question

Ok, on my 68 J-code with pertronix (running on fast idle (about 1100 rpm), with the - lead of my multimeter grounded to the block, touching the + lead to each of the coil posts I get 9vdc at the + side and 10vdc at the - side. Is that what you were looking for?

PS Control Valve Adjustment

The steering on my 68 is harder to the right than to the left.

In other words, do the front wheels have to be pointing straight ahead? I've be...

Re: Ever wonder what the previous owner was thinking?

That's why I'm never going to sell mine. No one deserves to have to figure out my priorities.

Getting older, getting dumber...

Last night I finished installing my styled steel wheels on CopyCatVert. This morning, I start the car to go to work, shift to reverse and let out the clutch. Nothing! Car doesn't move. I push the clutch in and out and shift through the gears. I can hear the transmission gears spinning, but the car a...
