Re: 1957 Hardtop

I had replaced the long lower back rubber sealer gasket # 50336 I bought from Concours parts catalog 1800 722 0009. I'm sure these are all made by the same mfg, We encourage our members to buy from the vendors that support VTCI .

Re: Wide White Wall Tires

There is a big difference between the rotation on a 14" vs a 15". Less rotation on a 15 to complete a circle than a 14". I feel that a 15" covers up the space between the fender and tire the stants looks far better.

Re: '55 T-bird coil spring removal and install

When I helped my neighbor change out the drums to disc brakes in the front we also changed the front springs and bushings. The motor was out of the car it made it easier to compress the springs with out the weight of the motor to fight. Now is the time to replace anything that shows wear or dry rot....
