Anyone have any experience removing light scratches from our Cadillac windshields 

I thought I might need to replace my windshield but when inspected by my windshield guy he seems to feel I could get away with polishing out the scratches as they are mostly light ones 

i have no dings or deep scratches 

I would like to keep the original glass —so this idea is appealing to me 

enjoy

If your windshield guy is doing to the work give it a try. Windshield polishing is like body work sanding, when you think your finished your actually just getting started.

Tony, there are auto glass light scratch removal kits available on Amazon (search auto glass scratch removal) or at your local auto parts store that usually work with a drill, and there are the headlight lens restoration kits (Click Here for one example), but either will only take out very fine scratches and both take a lot of time and effort to be effective. Unless you just like holding a drill and going back and for a long, long time with the auto glass kits, or lots of elbow grease with the lens restoration kits, I would ask your "windshield guy" how much he would charge to buff it out as he probably already has the professional equipment to do it faster and better.

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Hi.

Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?

Thanks

Fuel loss in Carburetor

Posted by Ian Osborne on December 29, 2018 at 11:24pm 16 Comments

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…

I would like to upholster my caddy back to original.   Does anyone know where I can look at some pictures or photos.  Also, how hard is it to remove the dash?  thanks
