Ford Model A Pickup Restoration March 2012

My parcel for the galvanic shop will soon be ready. I still find parts and screws which are not ready yet.

For grinding and polishing screws I take a piece flat steel in which I cut a thread. The screws can then be fixed and easily polished.

Where are the old screws and which are the new ones? 4 pieces of them are made new.

Polished parts are best protected with such a cling film you normally use in the kitchen. You can put all parts into a box, without being scratched.

The old wiper motor looks worse than it is.

I want to reuse the old steering wheel. Unfortunately it has several cracks on the outer ring.

I treat this problem with POR 15. The thin liquid flows through every crack and stops further rust. I will repeat the procedure until all cracks are filled. Finally I will polish the steering wheel.
