How would we replace the convertible quarter window, OUTER RUBBER (felts) strips, on our 64 Deville convert.

  Can it be done without removing the power window itself to access the fastening screws?

Learned a lot already , not done yet.  

Once the interior is together, still need to replace the broken water pump bolt, then replace some of the exterior stainless pieces where someone thought that small screws OR rivets were a good way to fasten exterior trim to the body panels.

Thx again



The condition of that bench seat is unreal
I did not respond to the picture which had me speachless for a while ( does not happen often )
That seat -is the interior color of my convert

I find it very interesting that basicly the leather part of the seats has held up the very best of all and almost all still there
Glad the frame was in good enough condition to be reused
There are projects and Then there are projects

Do enjoy the process or your doing something wrong regarding any hobby which all can get frustrating and difficult at times ( a Brain Jammer --as a friend had writen on the front fender of his record braking corvette - says it all )




 The donor front seat(in blue) came from a car in the midwest that I was lucky enough to find thru a "for parts" type sale. Owner had the correct front bench seat, with perfect springs, and the destroyed fabric as you see. Even had the switch to, with a two way mechanism that I have replaced with the original six way our car was made with. He had both front door panels, with the chrome/stainless trim,  that I used as patterns to make both front new door panels.

 The Palamino Leather is all new for both the front and rear seats --and installed same color for the entire interior and it does look great with the creamy yellow exterior with some black accent.

 Will post some fuller photos after getting the rear seats back in and the u jamb lock pillar fillers and front edge  rear quarter window gaskets installed. They are on order now.


Been a nice leaning experience for me to.

Anyone have a decent radiator and shrouds and hardware for a 1964 Cadillac deville. I have an alum. radiator and I'm deciding on to fix it or back to the original one. If I fix it I won't need parts.


64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…
