Ford Model A Pickup Restoration September 2007

In September first I had to finish my car lifter and then I continued the jobs on my Model A Ford.

This is my self made car lifter. The weight is approximately 50 kg, pure steel.

In this test, the car wheels are 40 cm from the ground and I can lift the car 7 cm more.

The 5 steel sections can be moved into the outer steel joint.

This is the configuration with the large gauge …

… and here with a smaller one, which means 5 cm less on each side.

The 50 cm round steel can be easily inserted.

The steel sections and the outer steel joint are connected with a screw but the screw just secures the parts so they will not move against each other.

Now the work on my Model A will continue. Here I will close any open gaps on my fender well. I think this will protect the part from rust, since I preliminary protected it with POR 15.

This is the product I'm using for this task, it's from Weicon.

It looks not very nice, but I can paint it with any type of color.

Now I can start with filler, grinding, primer … until all surfaces are smooth. Since I will have a perfect result, this can be a longer job.

My garage is becoming too small when I'm working on all parts together.
