    Your advice is much appreciated. PS. I just ordered a 4 1/2" shrinking disc from Wolfs, I think it may just do the trick. It may be awhile B4 I get to it, my Rheumatoid A. and the cold don't go well together, but I will. LOL, I always do eventually.

    I just ordered an 11lb spool of ESAP .023 easy grind. Thanks for the tip.

    I know nothing about PS pumps on flatheads, and not a whole lot more about flatheads in general much beyond how to swap them out for a modern V8. Sorry

    Hi AXracer
    I am doing the Toyota power steering on my 1950 F1 pickup.
    Do know what PS pump was used in the Brundell flathead conversion.
    Any help you can give me would be great.
    Thanks

    Hi AXracer,
    I was reading through a post where someone commented that you had made a post along the lines of "How to align a 53-56 F100 front end clip".
    Well I didn't want to bother you....so I went 'stalker' and flipped through a few hundred of your posts with absolutely no luck - I did learn about several things to consider in the life of our own build for our 54 F100 :-)
    Do you know where I might find some good instructions on bringing my front fenders & hood into the best alignment?
    Thanks

    I cant wait for the piece you mite do ,on using a shrinking disc. I've had a disk, but never thought of using it to smoothing out my tail gate. I just wanted you to know there is interest in the practice. Hope you decide to it.

    I typically work on a labor+ materials basis on rust repair since I don't know what surprises I'll find under paint/bondo/outer skin, and/or what level of finish the owner is going to want. I don't do this as a business, iI am a retired jeweler/goldsmith with 50 years experience shaping metal, building hotrods, race cars, just wanting to supplement my income, so I don't charge what the pro shops do. My labor charge is typically 25.00/hr work time, 10.00/hr parts research/chasing. + materials. I do only first quality work, fully metal finished or skim coated. Please don't ask me to do a slap and grind heavy bondo job. If you want to save money I can advise you on doing the prep work. I also offer one on one or small group instruction if you want to learn to DIY.

    Hey there. so, you mentioned that you do some of the metal patching. Can you give me a rough idea of what it would cost to have you do, say, a cab corner? I would be able to figure out and do this stuff myself but i also weigh the time value of having someone do it who actually knows what they are doing. Thanks!!
