For those like me who do not know what Micarta is:
Micarta industrial laminates are established as the premium phenolic thermoset materials in the industry. Micarta Phenolic sheet is a hard, dense material made by applying heat and pressure to layers of paper or glass cloth impregnated with synthetic resin. These layers of laminations are usually of cellulose paper, cotton fabrics, synthetic yarn fabrics, glass fabrics or unwoven fabrics. When heat and pressure are applied to the layers, a chemical reaction (polymerization) transforms the layers into a high-pressure thermosetting industrial laminated plastic.

I guess it was used because of resistance to heat?

The hubcaps on the 2106 are very sturdy and heavy. My right front hubcap is firmly attached but, I can rotate it with my hand when the car is at rest. It squeaks when the car is underway.
What is the best way to fix this? I thought about adjusting the "fingers" that hold it on but remember when the hubcap when spinning off into the forest and I saw $400 of hoardered gold evaporating into thin air! I did recover it but is has a greater share of "patina" now.

Any suggestions?

Arn't we just a little crazy? We have these beautiful rolling works of art and we go 12 miles "without incident" and we are elated!

Do we need intervention??

This year for the first time I have got my car to a reliable state where I can actually go on a hundred mile trip without fear. The car made it clear what it needed to be a reliable companion, and I listened!
It has been a long road! Thank you Ross and Howard, and the recommissioning angel, John!!!!

Ross's garage is in a very rural place. It is so pastoral,he can do his bathing in a squeaky clean river down the street!

Love the hand made hood but in my opinion, the hood ornament on the roadster is your finest piece of small art. You should post a pic for your fans with and without the high beam on and give a brief description of how you came up with the design.

You sound rested after your trip to Africa! Didn't you have anything to do???? 😂

I had a problem with my solenoid as well. I did mess around with it but I decided that it was best to just get one from a rebuilder like Max Merrit. That starter is extremely hard to install and remove because of the weight and I didn't want to have to do it more than once. The money was well spent. Since I installed the rebuilt solenoid the starter works flawlessly.
I doubt seriously you will ever find a rebuild kit for the solenoid. When you open it up you will see it is
a magnificent piece of engineering as all the major parts are machined from solid copper.

Driving our cars should be fine. They dont spread the virus. Just don't stop and talk to anyone. I intend to drive mine but stop and talk to no one.
Also, I can drive my Packard to the grocery store. All it takes us wheels.
