Air Fed Respirator

Whats the best method of ensuring a clean air supply for an air fed mask.

I want to make sure that I supply any new mask with clean air,

and not an oily mist from my compressor :D

Re: 1968 Complete Floor Pan For Sale

I suspect there would be folk that would be very interested

in a complete original pan with the full pan width as opposed to the insert pans.

I,d say that pic brings back plenty of early stage resto memories.

If only to save them from the scrappie, type 3 bits are thin on the ground here. That of course if you find no one else to take them, and you have the time to post and pack em...

My bumper mounts have two slots on the top, and one slot on the bottom. But is in a bit of a shabby mess, that will probably need a bit of fettling. And rather than rely on hitting the mark spot on the first time out, I decided to pop in a few bolt holes to allow me a good bit of adjustment. Plenty ...
