"Good advice. I was concerned that a clearcoat will make the car unnaturally glossy, far more than any single stage paint job would. But I think that is the way it will look he best."

Drain Tubes

My 1963 series 62 convertible is missing the drain tubes for the convertible top in the trunk. These tubes run from the trunk (under the rear of the top) to the interior and drain into the quarter panel next to the rear seat behind the trim panel. Mine is missing these tubes. Is anyone making them, or should I be looking for a used pair?Thank you,MarkSee More

Single stage or base coat / clear coat?

I am restoring a 1964 Coupe deVille that spent too much time in the elements. This car was my father's and is all original with 53K miles. The horizontal surfaces are too far gone and no amount of wet sanding will bring them back. It's a beautiful original lime green color. Code 34. I will repaint in the original color, but I am not sure if I should do a base / clear coat or stick with the single stage lacquer. The clear coat would look fantastic, but I do not want to damage the car IF I ever…See More

2 ea. 390 Cadillac engines 1 rebuilt and 1 parts

I have 2 ea. 1963 390 engines. One, rebuilt a few years back but I never used it and another from fan to transmission I bought for all the misc parts, brackets, pulleys, etc. The rebuild cost me $2,750.00 and the parts motor cost me $950.00. For all I will take $1,500.00. I was going to do a street rod thing with the motor but changed direction.http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/pts/5792813485.htmlCraigslist link.Tom650.333.2102See More

Engine/transmission rebuild

Posted by David Perea on September 26, 2016 at 11:39am 0 Comments

Hi I have a 63 Cadillac with a 390 and it sat for years before starting up and now the engine is giving signs of age, as well as the transmission slipping.. how much would a rebuild for each cost?

Please verify fitment on 63 and 64 coupe deville.

Posted by WickedKolor on September 23, 2016 at 9:29am 1 Comment

So, I was under the impression that 63 and 64 body panels would be interchangeable.  I am looking for a deck lid and ran across the Cadillac King in California.  He told me that a 63 deck lids will not 64.  Is this true?

What about the front bumpers.  They look to be the same fitment.

Thank you in advance.  I hope no one feels it is a dumb question. Just trying to get it all figured out.

Jason
Is correct about the check valve video being available
The problem was with my older device not being able to open the video, but it is there

Enjoy
