Bill, I haven't put a word in yet on any of this discussion, though I've enjoyed all the back and forth. I tend to agree, and even though a clip can usually be gotten pretty cheaply, by the time you

Good idea Barry. I'd seen the results of not coating the undersides of fenders, and the bruises in the paint caused by stones thrown up from the tires. A guy at one of the recent car shows had mentio

Dustin, I believe the backlash specs for most gear sets are unique to the set itself. I had ordered a new set of gears from Richmond Gear, and the backlash is stamped on the side of the ring. Quoting

Leah, the 18 gauge should be sufficient, but you may need to add some support type bracing underneath. If you notice on original panels, they are sometimes formed with ribs or other shapes to add in
