      I learned two things. Do not try and pull the rectangular knobs off to gain better access, or you'll break one, like I did.:banghead: Fortunately, it's the manual-on radio switch. The one next to it...

      Body filler is used on all cars, to some degree. Our 356 Porsche came from the factory with a generous layer of plastic filler.

      A fine process.

      Your thread inspired me to go looking for our Sony clock radio. I'm thinking 1968 vintage. We had one for many years, but when my wife and I physically built our home I used it as...

      I used a very light duty machine oil available at hobby shops to lubricate the direct-drive turntable. However, I've found from my years of woking on motors in the electrical service trade, and in...

      The grommets on the Lincoln Zephyr new 2-piece with tangs that bent over to make a metal circle. Attaching them to the floor would keep them from popping off. If you look at the pedal assembly you...
