Brace Yourselves!

Posted: November 26, 2010 in Uncategorized

Found a good pair of floor bracing on Ebay.  These braces are not reproduced and are very weak on my Ranch Wagon. They mount directly between the toe pans and the cowl.



I got a call from Bob, who was scavenging the Albany Swap Meet last weekend about some 58 Ford parts that he had come across.  He told me he had found a good lower Grille valance, and upper grille valance.  They were priced reasonably, so I told Bob to get them.  He dickered with the seller and got them for even less than what he was asking.  They are in amazingly good shape with no rust or deterioration.  I only brought the upper panel home as the lower valance was too large to fit into my car.

This is a picture of the panel that is rusty on my car (panel between Headlights that has FORD on it)

This is the Good Used panel that Bob found at the Swap Meet.

Thanks again to Bob for more good finds for the Wagon.

Ooooohhhh. Shiny Eyebrows.

Found some good used chrome headlight doors on Ebay. They were pretty dirty in the auction pictures so I picked them up pretty cheap.  When I got them I spent an hour scrubbing them and polishing them with #00000 steel wool and they look really good. The Driver side one is pit free. The Passenger side has a few pits on the underside top.
