I regret to report that Ed Franko, former chief judge of PAC passed away earlier today. His wife Bonnie was former president of PAC.

Might be fun for the membership to see how many items can be identified by the parts numbers on the bins.

Thank you for posting.Looks like you included N Africa and probably France as I am assuming image 5 is Luftwaffe on Western Front.

I photograph a WWII reenactment every Sept in the Finger Lakes Region of NY State and the host organization is the 272 Fusiliers. They have a 40 Buick Eight painted Feldgrau as their staff vehicle.

My pleasure and thanks for your post on the power rear window. I wasn't aware of that feature before. Wonder if anyone tried using it as a variable pitch high speed spoiler. Perhaps Guscha has some info.

There is an interesting Kodachrome posted today on the Shorpy site today of a Packard taxi in Times Square. Unfortunately I wasn't able to attach it so here is the link if you are interested in seeing it.

Good plan,make sure you purchase the linseed oil not the boiled linseed. I have also found that heating it to around 140F makes it that much more absorbable. I use an old double boiler to warm it.

The trick is to use the Allback organic raw linseed oil, not the boiled linseed as you did. Also very light, thin coats. Had a small area of rust show up on inner/outer inside bed rail of my Canyon two years ago so I lightly coated both sides of the area with the raw linseed oil and that stopped the rust dead it's tracks.
As it penetrates the area it seals it off and as Dave Czirr mentioned in a post on Hanks Clipper it turns onto a polymer as it dries.
This stuff is such a great preservative the National Park Service has specified the Allback organic linseed oil and linseed oil paint products to be used exclusively by the Park Service.

May I suggest using Allback organic linseed oil available from Viking Sales in Victor,NY? http://www.silentpaintremover.com
This will seal the metal and not allow air or anything else to penetrate the pores of the metal. I am going to be using it soon on the Derham to stabilize the underside of car.
Henry used the Allback boiled linseed oil to paint his 55 Clipper which turned out looking very good as I recall.
