Hello everyone. I do upholstery, and was thinking of a "tip of the day" for the club, I am a hobbiest, and would love to know some of the secret "tips" that many of you have learned while working on your KFW products, hence the idea of this new post. Remember this is YOUR club, It doesn't belong to the KFOIC President, or the Historian, or secretary, well you get the idea, this is not my club, is is OUR club, so lets help each other out with good tips. Your imput may be helpful to someone else, so Although I hold no offical rank, just a regular member, let me place a few "rules" to help this out. Don't critisize anyones tip, you can give advice on a better, more effective way, but we are all here to help enjoy our cool cars. Lets see if we can get a new tip of the day everyday. One tip may be for a specific year or make, that ok, we can all learn from them. so, here is my TIP OF THE DAY:
I was making a car cover for my 53 Kaiser Manhattan, and noticed that the hood ornament wants to poke a hole in the car cover. TIP: use a small ( but big enough ) block of styrofaom of the tip of the hood ornament, or some other item, such as a ball like a tennis ball to poke thru the tip, this will save your car cover from being poked with holes in the front.
