  4. I’d have never considered that mod to add the E brake! Very cool.

  5. Nice work adapting the e-brake cable socket. I usually add a 1/2" tube similar to the one on Lockheed backing plates. FYI '56 rear plates have the cable provision.

    If anyone wants a template of the cutout or part # of the backing plate, PM me.

    Rich B. Thanks for that, and for the heads up on Gotham. I just lucked into these backing plates but am on the lookout for the 53-6 F-250 ones.

    How are the F250 different from the F100?

  11. Main difference F-250 are 12" while F-100 are 11"; but there are also differences in adaptability to early Fords.

    As Rich says, size of drum. Buick finned drums are 12" and they convert to the F-2 / F-250 backing plates, on front or rear. Stay with the F-250 backing plates for the rear as they have emergency brake provision, the F-2 does not. My F-2 backing plates were free, so it was worth adapting E/brake hardware to them.

    Less and less original paint, but I should be able to save 50%+.. Maybe I'll change the thread name to
    "Patchwork Paint Coupe", we'll see. Hope to be in primer by months end.

    I didn’t want to modify a pristine 34 spoon pedal so I cut up a 36 accelerator linkage to narrow it and change the inner arm angle, and inverted it to clear the vacuum advance pot and give more movement range.
