A couple of more thoughts on painting and color sanding. Have your various grits of sandpaper in their own containers of water/Dawn soap as you don't want to have grit from a courser paint to get onto a finer one. Also, when spraying a base coat (especially ones with high metallic content) your spray gun direction must always be in same direction from start to finish, e.g. "left to right" (L2R) or "up & down" (U&D) don't mix L2R with U&D. If you sand a base coat, you must re-shoot the base coat. Some BC require clearcoat over them the same same. To shoot another clearcoat the next day or later you should sand with at least a fine paper.

Congratulations looks real nice.

When you do your color sanding use a little Dawn in the water allowing the paper to soak for 15 to 20 minutes. Try starting with 1000 grit, but depending on you degree of orange peel you may want to use 800. USE a sanding block and be very careful at the curved areas as it is easy to blow through the clear coat. After the 1000 go to 2000 then 3000.

Most people stop at 2000 but using 3000 makes for a very easy buffing job. I then buff it out using 3M Stuff.

I would usually shot 3 to 4 coats of clear. If you only did 2, you may want to consider a light sanding with 1000 and then shooting 2 more coat. Just be careful on the curves and take your time.

Good Luck

BDeB thanks for the response. Right after I posted the light bulb went off and I looked Spec. section and wrote up the info you posted. In my haste or maybe I was distracted, but in any case I didn't click on Submit.

Again Thanks

Brake Shoes

I'm trying to figure out what shoes go where. On the shoes 2 have 9" on lining and 2 shoes with 13 of lining. The remaining 4 all have 12" of lining, but in slightly different locations on the shoe frame.

Which ones go on the front and which one is the front shoe. Plus the same for the rear brakes?

I'm guessing the Front-Front is the 9" and the 12" A or 12" B would be the Front-Rear.

Where Front-Front is front brakes shoe on the front.

On my post above, the '32 was previous owner and the '55 was the new one. I would not hesitate to use them again.

I used Waldrons on my '32 and '55, The '32 had been converted from an updraft carb to a down draft. So I or it as was a '33. I installed it myself, it took some mods near where it went to the manifolds. Other than that it went well.

I had the '55 done at a shop and it required some minor mods, but much required to make it fit.

We were at a car show in Santa Maria CA. We saw a 1934 Phaeton which had the suspension chopped up and modified with a hydraulic system so it could be bounced up and down. A crate engine V8 was installed. There owner thought he could get $60K or so for the car. I informed him it would be worth 3 to 5 times if properly restored to it's original shape.
