  1. Want to see about getting a new Model A rear main leaf made or eyes reversed. av8 gave me a good one, but it was up North. Thanks Jim

    There is also Long Beach spring & forge in Long Beach. It may be closer for you than Hollywood, but the last time I checked their prices were higher than balls on a giraffe.

    I took my '36 rear main leaf to Atlas Spring in La Puente to be re-arched. It turned out to be cracked. The guy says he can make a new one with reversed eyes with whatever arch I want. $55. When it was time to do the front, I didn't dick around, went right there. Now I have brand new main leafs under both ends of the car. Somehow, I feel bright. [​IMG]Wayno
     
  10. Thanks Coby, I will probably take you up on delivering it then I will pick it up when it's done. Thanks Jim
