Working on old cars, a blast cabinet is an extremely valuable tool. I started with a small one like Kevin then invested in a larger one from TP Tools. Cram everything I can in it! Get the glass bead from Harbor Freight.

Does your choke have this part? It was missing in most of the Carter carbs I had. Finally found one in a scrap carb I bought. I think its purpose was to disengage the choke plate when the throttle was depressed. Might not have worked, seems like most were removed.

The 29th Annual Florida Packard Club Meet in Sarasota on Sunday has been cancelled. It was cancelled not because of the virus but because of flooding at the site caused by Hurricane Eta.

Kevin,

I think my problem was the fact that the pieces I used were 12"X24" with the seams taped. Looks like the pieces you used were larger. The bigger the pieces, the better it would probably hold.

Kevin,

I used a similar insulation product on my '39 Ford sedan. Cleaned and primed the roof and applied a product called HushMat. Car was painted black and after about 6 months in the Florida sun, it started coming unattached. Removed the headliner and removed the material. For my Packard, I sprayed the roof with LizardSkin thermal and sound deadener. Water soluble and sprays with an undercoating gun.

I built 2 of these out of 2X4s to support the fenders and doors. Added wheels to roll around. Can be folded up to store. Inexpensive to male and have used on multiple cars.

The post about accidents triggered my interest. I've had arguments about relative safety of vintage cars. You know like drum brakes are as good as disks, etc. I looked up some stats relative to my 1949 Packard. The Vehicle Deaths per 100 million miles traveled in 1949 was 7.13. In 2018 it was 1.09. Ernie is right probably safer on a horse unless you drive within the cars safety limitations or use a trailer.

Here's an interesting graph I found by Dennis Bratland.
