The Tool Box August 2022
By John Firth


The purpose of this column is for members who are either restoring a Model A or are working on issues that need correcting or updating to share their experiences and progress with the club.  But I won’t know what you are doing unless you tell me about it, so give me a call!  

Jerry Schulte has been working steadily on his 1928 roadster pickup and will be calling on the Busted Knuckles Bunch in the next month or so to help install his rebuilt motor.

Dallas Nielsen got his special coupe running again after his firewall fire burned up the wiring.  Thankfully, no other damage was noted.

John Firth is getting the 68B cabriolet body slowly but surely put back together (see December 2021 and July 2022 photos below). The sill and other body wood is all in and body work is mostly done. The hard part will be fitting all the pieces together with the right gaps. As Dale says, “the last 1/8 inch is what makes a professional job”.

If you have updates, call me at 541-474-1516.  If you need help with something,  as long as you are a member in good standing of Henry’s Lady, you can call Chuck Green 541-471-9214 for a Busted Knuckles consultation.

Keep turning those wrenches!
