I found brake cylinders for my '49 F4 at NAPA. They aren't cheap, but they
do have a whole vintage parts catalog. I got some other parts (hoses,
master cylinder) from Mac's

Nope, the list server doesn't keep them.

Subject: '57 F100 Seat

Does anyone know where I can find a seat for my '57 F100. The drivers side
is pretty trashed, the springs are shot. I am willing to either replace it
(with the same model, or a different one, it does not matter). OR, has
anyone ever used the kits to rebuild the springs and upholstry that you can
order from catalogues?

Any comments or suggestions welcome,


Geoffrey Janes

There is a hole through the frame, it's just hard to find. Use a
flashlight and a small mirror and you should be able to see it. It's
hiding behind a bracket or brace of some kind.

Thanks to those who responded .. the bad news:

(1) The phone for "Bob in NJ" is no longer in service.
(2) Sacramento Vintage does NOT have the frames.

The good news: Carpenter is "working on" developing the frames.
Availability date unknown. Maybe if we all call in asking, they'll speed
up the production.

MAC's recommended a "parts finder" out of California called "Garden of
Steedin." Has any fellow FTR'er used this outfit?

Randy asked in #006 about F-1 tailgate "Ford" script. I used a "boat
graphic" company to produce vinyl lettering in script for another
application. (Hot rod golf cart; how's this for a toy?) Looks great,
durable, but not cheap. I think my 4" letter, two-word name was about $35.
You can find such companies in boating magazines.

You might also try some of the franchise "signs 'r us" type shops. I had
"NIFTY FIFTY" done in small vinyl script that I put on my dashboard gauge
plate between the four small gauge face openings. The shop matched my
preferred font style and color pretty good.
