Hello,
Does anyone have a pattern for the boot when the top is down?
What fluid can I put in my shocks?
Do I need to put a lead additive in my fuel?
Where can I get 6v amber fog lamps to replace my old ones? (factory mounted in the grill)
Thank you,
Denny

I don't know about your other questions, but you won't need a lead aditive in your fuel.

Denny,
You didn't indicate what year your Studebaker is. I agree that you don't need lead additive in your Stude. Only cars with high compression engines need the stuff.
As far as fog lamps are concerned, you may wish to contact SASCO in South Bend to see if they have any. Otherwise, you could advertise for them in "Turning Wheels" magazine. Are you a member of the Studebaker Drivers Club?

I think Kanter sells 6 volt amber lamps.

Many of the fog and driving lights were made by Unity. They are still in business, still have new lights and parts. See "Lamps and Bulbs" listing at http://www.unityusa.com/catalog/Default.aspx
