    Yep, the way they work is the studs are angled so they stretch the band down over the shape of the cowl and hold it tightly in place. Getting a band off is no problem, putting it back on after the car is painted can be a real pain. :)

  11. The most common camera to computer problem is not setting the camera to the lowest resolution. High resolution is good for vacation photos but low resolution is required for photo posting (be sure to set your camera back to high resolution after taking the pictures). If you lost your instruction manual for the camera most of them are availbale free on line from the camera manufacturer. Most camera stores are willing to help you change the settings. There are also companies out there selling the same information so be sure to go to the mauufacturer.

    If you have a real early 1930 there are clips with nuts along the top as well. I've only seen one in 50+ years in the hobby.
