48-50 front bumper adjustment
#11
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

H.E.PennyPackard
Hello All,

My front bumper seems to be a bit crooked, the passenger side end makes contact with the fender when I hit a bump causing a loud bang in and out of the car. It was actually a relief discovering this was the sound and not a suspension part! In looking at the mounts and hardware there though, everything seems a bit solid and I'm not sure how to adjust it really (Bend things? Spacers/shims?). I also see pictures of other cars where it's similarly angled up, as if the lower part is smiling a bit, and other cars where it's angled down, as if the bumper is hanging from the middle. Is it an easy thing to adjust?

Thanks!

No problems for me either, and the roads here are like a minefield of potholes. It is tight getting them in the rear fenders as mentioned, but deflating and wrestling worked for me. I went with budget black wall tires (radial champiro or something) off Amazon and got a deal where a Pep boys installed them on the rims (brought to them off the car). Other than some questions about the tubes on the wheels, they had no issue getting the radials on and holding air and they haven't leaked. Been driving in all conditions for 7 months now.

Thermostat gasket

Hello, quick check mid-project! I got this thermostat kit from one of the big two. Why am I remembering a post that said it's supposed to be a paper gasket? Is this incorrect?

I've taken a few drives around carefully avoiding people, posted mainly on the 22-23rd FB page also. One to Plum Island, took another two out to Parker's because I dropped off/picked up for a seat belt installation.

Also I'm in to work when needed to be and Penny's my daily, so she's around town those days as well, rain, snow, sun. Even in difficult times, she brings a smile to most, present company included.

Well he sure has a lot of friends there, and what looks like a 22nd series peeking out from under a cover.

Just curious about the cause behind the high-speed turnpike driving exception for my own knowledge, and if this means one might want to consider something different for the tank if one was planning a longer trip with more highway miles?

Re:leaded additives/fuel, this is still the #1 thing (in my experience) that men aged 50-70 ask me specifically about. Usually after making some comment about their opinion on the styling and/or putting a V8 and disc brakes in. My replies about the originality and it being fine on pump gas after the rubber/carb rebuild baffles every time! The ladies and younger or older folks always love the car as is.

Thanks!

I'm going to go for it, though it might take some time to get it pending how he wants to manage the actual sale vs outbreak risk. I'll report back about which variety it turned out to be!
