I'm laughing at myself because a buddy and I just did a complete frame off restoration on 1930 Model A Ford.

Thank you,

Crabman, it doesn't want to come off with mineral spirits. We had gaps and open seams. The previous seal disappeared entirely in 14 months in our So Fla sun. We'll get it right though.

At least the Model A hobby has several firms that "try" to make parts. And Ford made 4.5 million originally. But your project is really, really difficult ... Only some 114,000 made in all body styles....
