Thanks to all.......

I wanted to ask if my tires can be salvaged
Probably can’t tell from the images but there is a lot of paint/primer overspray on them
Plenty of tread left......any ideas on how to clean hem up

Thanks

Mark

Mark, For light overspray on rubber tires, I would remove the hubcap, protect the wheel if painted, and use 0000 Steel wool dipped in Acetone and gently go over the tire. Start with the blackwall, then try the whitewall. I run the 8mm Accel Superstock plug wires on my engine and wanted to get the lettering off and basically did the same thing.  With the plug wires across an old town I was able to wipe the lettering off the wires leaving them all black in just a few minutes. The Acetone will dry quickly, and you should be able to just gently go over wiping off with the Acetone drying way before it can damage the tire. Just be careful not to get Acetone on any painted surfaces and wear gloves. I used Acetone extensively when cleaning parts, as it quickly dries, leaves zero residue and will remove paint quickly!  I think it and WD40 are my 2 favorite go to juices in the garage!

Mark I have the wide white walls on my car. I wanted to know how to make sure they stayed their best so I went to the manufacturers website to se if they had recommended cleaning procedures. That did.. Scrub hard.. Very hard.. Lol

Man that's nice. Rechrome? LEDs? Quit teasing us lol

Looks really good.

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…
