Subject: Want tailgate "FORD" stickers or decals

Hello everybody

I'm looking for the stickers or decals that go on the "FORD" on the tailgate.
The colors I would like to have would be either silver, white or black, in
that order. Thanks for any help.

...steering column from the Town Car into my 57. This is not a tube type
column....

Here is the link to my pictures of my installtion of the '86 Tbird column in
my '54.

Not an easy job, and don't know if it was worth the effort, just to keep it
all Ford, and preserve the in-the-wheel cruise controls.

Good luck!

You might measure the rear sway bay from any BroncoII. They might be exactly
what the doctor ordered. I ran a couple down but havent removed or measured
them yet., But they appear to be real close to maybe working.

Nick,

I bought a roll of insulation from PEP Boys that was foil on one side and a
fairly heavy jute on the other, about 20 to 29 dollars, don't remember. Then
because our trucks have almost flat floors, I went to a local carpet store and
bought six feet off the end of a roll of black carpet, I think it was a 12 foot
roll. Five bucks a yard, so for $60. this gave me enough to carpet from the top
of the firewall to the back of the cab twice... in case I messed up. I didn't ,
it was easy. Good luck

Try Sacramento Vintage Ford - 1-888-FORD-100. They have what you are looking
for. I think they are also on-line

I have let my nearly finished truck sit for the winter while I waited for my
brother-in-law to paint the bed for me, (the cab is finished). I should
have jacked up the truck and put it on jack stands, but I didn't. Will I
have permanent flat spots on my Coker reproduction bias-ply 16 inch
whitewall tires? If it's not permanant what should I do to get them round
again?
Thanks,

Thanks for the reply but I don't have that sort of skill so I may have to go
w/ the pre formed carpets.

you might try an automotive upholstery supply house. if you have any type
of business # you might be able to get it wholesale. that's what i did with
an ACC carpet, which is quite nice. the 40% off retail was quite nice also.

Subject: Steering and Seatbelts

Hey all. I'm looking forward in time a bit for fun new ways
to spend money on my truck, a '50 F3. So...

I haven't really looked at the steering and such on my truck,
but there is a lot of play in the steering wheel, like maybe
1/4 of a turn or so. Is this normal, or should I start looking
at fixing up the steering box and other steering parts? If
there is supposed to be some play, has anyone tried a steering
stabilizer (one of those shock-looking things that modified
4X4s use), or would this just make the steering effort harder?

Also, I'm looking into getting some seatbelts. I would prefer
to get 3-point, but don't know where would be the best point
to bolt in the shoulder harness. Any suggestions?

Still waiting for the fuel pump kit (and rear drums) to arrive
in the mail...
