Hello, I have a 63 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible.

The car was recently rear-ended and I now have a dent in the rear bumper.
Separately, the front bumper has some rust holes.
I've attached pictures of both.
Can you advise what options I have for getting the dent out and fixing the holes, and potential pricing guesses?  I looked on the supplies page and sent an email to Bumperboyz, as I'm in Los Angeles, so we'll see what they say.  It may be cheaper to replace the front bumper ends than try to fix mine if I can find them.
Does anyone have good conditions parts for sale for either of these?
What would you do?
Thank you.
-Tim

I got these prices from the local shop here in LA.

They would give me show quality pieces back, and take my cores in exchange.

Prices with acceptable core exchanges:

Rear center: $550

Rear ends: $320 x 2 ($640)

Front center upper: $250

Front center lower: $400

Front upper ends: $260 x 2 ($520)

Front lower ends: $350 x 2 ($700)

Total: $3,060 + any additional charges where the cores need to be patched and heavily repaired.

I am assuming they would not consider your smashed in rear center, and front lower ends "acceptable core exchanges".  With that I would ask for price without core.  I would just be clear on what the total might would more likely be. All of your prices are about in line with what would expect to rechrome good cores.. so no surprises there.

Help on Removal of rear seatback on 64 convertible

Posted by Nile Bolen on January 8, 2021 at 11:44am 7 Comments

I'm trying to remove the rear seatback on my 1964 deville conv.  The only help on this site that I can find is the following:

The seatback, its bright stainless trim, and the speaker grille are removed as an assembly.  The seat back hangs on two hooks near the top, and is retained to the body by two bolts and washers near the floor, one on the right side, one on the left.Once these fasteners are removed, lift the seat back upward and free it from the hooks

I've removed…
