63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 1 Comment

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob

Leaky Freeze Plug

Posted by Lee Martin on March 22, 2021 at 12:49pm 7 Comments

Just developed a significant leak coming from a freeze plug right over the starter.  Would this be considered a "cam plug" i.e. like Dorman 17616DS?  Our cars have multiple sizes of plugs on engine block and I want to get the right one.  Also, does anyone know how pricey this is for a shop to fix?  Thanks!
