Hello Everyone, other than putting batteries in a flashlight my electric background stinks. I have a 12v 45rpm record player I want to mount to the bottom of the dash above the transmission hump. I can do that . The speakers are not an issue since the player sends out a signal on 1600 am. I can attach the ground wire to the dash. The power wire is to be hooked to the postive side of the fuse box. It has a 5amp fuse on it. I figure I could stick the wire with connector into a clip holding a fuse like for the radio. What I don't know how to do safely is check the box for the postive side. I would appreciate any assistence..but  explain it to me like I'm 4 years old..and as if your looking at it while laying on your back looking up at the box so you can read the writing on it...Thanks again Tom

All the fuses are going to be hot, or positive.   Look on the side of the fuse box for a terminal, where you could plug in the hot wire to the record player.  There should be 2 terminals where you could plug in an accessory.

Here's what I did yesterday.

I LOVE progress! 

Yellow body / white (off white) roof is next

Struggling with the roof color - the car is gonna be Plasti-Dipped.  I have a little experience with it (through my son who's done some parts / no whole cars though)  The fender skirts are already dipped and that is the yellow the car will be.  I want a bone / almond / cream roof but am leaning towards pure white

What do you all think of those combo's…

This is an amazing time we live in, I was at the local Flea Market (The Sunrise Swap Shop )  with my girl friend yesterday, we came upon a booth where you can email them FROM YOUR PHONE any pic you like and for a mere $15.00 US ( $10.00 if you bring them the T-shirt )  they can print it on a shirt. …


Hood to Cowl or Firewall Seal

Posted by Lindsay Dent on September 20, 2014 at 1:28pm 7 Comments

My '64 Eldo had been restored before I bought it and there are a few small things missing which I am trying to replace. Over labor day weekend Rubber the Right Way had a 15% off sale so I couldn't resist and stocked up.

Where the long hood seal goes there are 12 holes which look like they are used to attach the seal. There are 8 spaced about 5 inches apart and a pair on each end spaced about 1.25 inches apart. In the 8 holes 5 of them have screws holding wire clips underneath and have…
