I'm in the process of doing this right now. I'm almost done and lots of good advice here so thanks everyone. My one question is what do I set the float level at ? It's a Daytona kit for a WGD carb and it states how to adjust and where to measure but it doesn't give a dimension and I can't seem to find anything.It also has 3 different thickness gaskets for the float needle and seat assy ?

Thanks

Thanks

I'm also doing inner and outer rockers. I know I'm asking a lot but can anyone send some photos of their inner rockers and how the floor support channels go together from underneath, and a good shot of how the floor supports go downward to attach to the inner rocker mine are rotted.

Thank you

Thank you ! Exactly as I wanted. Even if not exact its a start with the stiffening and creases etc, I can modify from there. Putting together a shopping list now.

Hi,

I need to replace some parts of the floor in my 50 Packard Standard Eight. Mainly the drivers foot area from the tunnel to the rocker and the passenger rear floor area. I think I've determined that these are not reproduced. I guess I could make them as close as possible. has anyone used re pops from say another type of vehicle that were close ?

thanks in advance

Really, when I said "original" I KNOW its not an exact original with a 39 engine. I was aiming like the last comment about not putting in a brand X engine or anything like that. Im not worried about judging, numbers matching etc, I know that going in. If I do get this and just have fun with it taking to car shows and cruises chances are most people wouldn't know the difference.

Im still pondering purchasing the car.

Thanks !!

Reading this is leading me to say it can be done and still maintain originality.
