    When you have spring situations like that use a string to help. Just wrap once put through and pull.

    What you poured out of that gas tank was not morning piss yellow it was Montezuma's revenge brown. White vinegar is what you use in the gas tanks, not apple cider vinegar. White vinegar is acetic acid. Apple cider vinegar is what the vitamin freaks say you should drink a gallon of every day to live to be a hundred years old.

    Need to check out Coker tires. They still manufacture bias ply, and they even make radials that look like bias ply. They are not cheap, but it is better than rolling around on 50 year old bias plys.

    A quick way to check remaining meat to cut drums is the bevel at the edge, once the bevel is gone the drum is toast. And omg invest in a go-pro on a headband so you can work with both hands and we will see what you see. I also see just a lil Testarosa in that car from the side.

    I want to thank you for the great videos and knowledge you are sharing here on SE-one. I found your channel about the same time Covid started and I really appreciated and took to heart your approach of no fear and lets just "see what's in there". I can say your videos singularly gave me the confidence to take on a restoration project this year and most importantly the attitude to just go and if I make a mess, just work myself out of it and learn something along the way. My 1973 Ford (Mazda) Courier truck project has been great and is close to paint! Again thanks for the videos, knowledge and confidence.

    1:01:53 just like when you open a bathroom scale (the old school kind with springs, which doesn't die, since it's a mechanism) you just have to pass a wire and hook unto the spring and pull it through. Works every time.

    Mostly because i think it looks a bit ugly, but also because that type of pop up headlight is a PITAx2 to deal with, i would just get rid of the whole cap, use it to thermo form some plastic "domes" and put a regular, fixed headlight. That'd open up the wheel well back to its proper size. Everything about that design screams "idea with bad execution" to me.

      I haven't driven a manual in about ten years, but when I did, I never used the hand brake to start on a hill. For moderate hills, I just launched quickly so I had only a few inches of rollback. For really steep hills, I did a heel-and-toe launch.
