Most people in the Lower Mainland go to Silver City Galvanizing.
The club did a walk through at their factory quite a few years back and they were friendly and helpful.
Maybe some one who has been there more recently can give us some feedback?

Re: 1956 Series One Rebuild Project

Thanks Herman,

It does have the main oil filter further down the line so the pick up filter in the sump is just really a pre-screen.
My plan to keep it as simple and original as possible, but I am always open to some hidden upgrades if it was done on the Series 2 & 3's.
