Interior paint

Hey guys, take a look at these pictures. I had my dash repainted but the color does not match the other pieces in the car.  The data tag is gone on my car, so I had to guess at the color code. My question to you guys that have parted out several cars, what color do you think this is? I am certain that I have trim code 61 which would be Gray. to me this paint has a blueish tint.…See More

Cadillacs of the sixties.

Do any of you own the Cadillacs of the Sixties book? I was wondering if it was worth the 100 plus price they sell for.

Anyone have experience with using a summit racing carb on our cars?

Rear end oil change.

Posted on September 27, 2014 at 10:42pm 4 Comments

Any of you guys ever change your rear end oil. Am I correct in assuming that the old oil has to be pumped out? I don't see any bolts holding a rear plate like others I've seen.

Jason, Would you like the dimensions?

Posted on August 16, 2014 at 6:11pm 24 Comments

I read a comment you made about the splash guard for the battery. Would you like the dimensions?

Rear Side Window Stainless Sill Removal

Posted by Lee Martin on June 24, 2019 at 3:07pm 2 Comments
