Thanks, Ted.  I appreciate your posting these.

A local community sponsors a summer get together with all sorts of family events.  The highlight for vintage car enthusiasts is the New London to New Brighton car run.  Only automobiles made from 1916 or older can participate. 

They expect about 75 participants and motor bikes are there, too.  Regardless the number, it is fun to watch them cross the finish line.  Many are parked afterwards for a closer look.

Is there a paint or coating that can be put on the brake fluid can that will not come off from brake fluid getting on it?  Seems like after a while the seams leach fluid, or when filling fluid gets on it and the paint peels off. Any ideas out there? - Rich
Plymouth and inovation go hand in hand.

Rich,

I used the stuff below both on my 48 Plymouth gas tank and the 29's brake fluid can.  So far around 8 years and no problems.



Here is the link to the repair in 2005

I am sure you can Google it for specifications.  Once dry I believe it is impervious to chemicals.

Thank you for the reply for treating the inside of a brake fluid can. Is there a paint or coating for the outside that will stay?  - Rich

Rich, I don't know of any paint that regular fluid won't eat.  I have the same problem.  I do try to keep the level in the reservoir no more than 2/3 full.  Seems to help.

Here are pictures from the Official Roster of the vintage cars from last Saturday.  It was sprinkling and I didn't take my camera, but you can get the idea.  If you think we have problems with oil leaks, you should see what these owners have to endure.

Finally got the brake reservoir decal and applied.  I think it looks pretty good.

Drove about 40 miles to a Threshing show on Saturday that Dave readied his car to attend. I'll post a few pics on separate thread.  Trip there was uneventful.  On the way home was a different story.  Fuel and carb problems.  Never had the idle adjustment screw vibrate loose to lean the mixture.  I may need a new spring to keep it in the correct place.  Learn more all the time.

I hope they have many participants.  That would be fun to see, also.  Thanks for the link.  frank
