"It worked perfectly. The 360 wheels made it possible to adjust within millimeters. Even with the rough surface below. Less than 15 USD well spend I must say."

Removed the old axle but as I am working alone and on my drive way I had to found a solution to the problem of getting the "new" axle in to position without any damage.…See More

For sale: 1963 Cadillac front center impact bar $100 + shipping

Posted by Lee Martin on April 3, 2018 at 2:12pm 0 Comments

Offering this newly re-chromed 1963 Cadillac front center impact bar for sale, $100 plus whatever it costs to ship it from Detroit to your location.  

The unit fits perfect on driver's side but does not sit flush on passenger side.  I am told someone needs to take a wooden block and hammer and bang the passenger side lower corner in to make it fit right.  If you know how to do this stuff, this is the piece for you.
