Todays the big day the fire dept. is done practicing on a donated Isuzu.
they were using their cutting saw and jaws of life on the passenger
compartment. It seems the chief was pulled over New Years Eve by my
brother-in-law and he let him go. A phone call to the chief got me access to
the carcass before it goes to the crusher. I'm pulling the tank and
hardware I think I'll need.

On a '52 F1, is there any way to adjust/calibrate the speedometer?
Consistently on low side (both mileage and speed) - have lubricated well but
this did not affect the accuracy - just made it quieter and "smoother".
Thanks - Bruno

Getting ready to cleanup and repaint under the hood of my '52 F1 - V8; what
are the correct colors for the engine, air cleaner, oil filter canister, etc.
Thanks - Bruno

I was going to install one piece glass in my 55, but couldn't find a kit.
Sacramento Vintage Ford and No Limit engineering both advertise one, but the
last time I checked neither company had a kit. They were in development.
No Limit did send me a kit, but it was a for 55 Ch*vy. Classic Trucks or
Custom Classic Tucks had a how-to article a few months ago. It invoved much
metal cutting, welding and body work to rework the hinges, and window
opening. If you find a workable kit, let me know.

Thanks so much for all the responses, both "pro" and "con" on this modification. Since I'm still busy with the chassis and drivetrain, I have plenty of time to carefully consider my options before I start cutting on the doors. There's no substitute for the considered opinions of fellow FTE listers!

I have an M-47 truck (1950 Mercury pickup) and am looking for the following
parts that are Mercury specific in good condition:

wrap-around trim around the front fenders
hood emblem
hub caps
Radio Delete panel (does anyone have it chrome?)
