    I made a stand out of wood w/casters when I was removing the doors on my '54. Took about 1/2 hour to build and cost nothing. Something like this may work for you.

    What's the best header paint out there?

    I'm about to blast my headers and paint 'em. Is VHT my only decent option? And no, I'm not gonna ceramic coat them.

    Best way to remove paint from trunk jambs

    I want to remove the 67 year old paint and sealer from my trunk jamb. Isn't there a polycarbonate wheel that comes with an integrated arbor that attaches to a drill that will fit down into the jamb?...
