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.

64 Power Servo vacuum leak

Posted by Kent Prows on June 27, 2020 at 4:02pm 0 Comments

I finally got around to fixing a leak in my heater core.  I decided to check to see if there were any other obvious issues while I had everything torn apart.  When I put a vacuum directly (bypassing the transducer) to the power servo it gets to about 10" and then slowly leaks back to zero.  The fan will not go to full and the mode door will not open completely.  I have read a couple of other posts that said they repaired the power servo leaks.  How?  Does anyone have one to sell?  I just…
