I just wanted to post a tip on renewing my dash pad. My pad was in perfect shape but it was heavily chalked from sun and age. I tried washing and scrubbing with cleaners and had very little success. I put on several different vinyl dressings that just made it look worse. As I had done the paint in a few areas with 0000 steel wool I thought I would try it on the dash. I used very soapy water and light even strokes that covered all areas. It turned out fantastic and now looks brand new with vinyl care products applied. It has a low sheen to it which I would guess is close to factory appearance. I suggest those faint of heart to start in a hidden area of the dash to attempt this. Again excellent results with light even passes of the steel wool. Last note 4/0 or 0000 steel wool is the one I used and appears to be the finest wool you can get.

Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.
The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…
