No one?

Hi Markus,

     I just installed these side rubber weatherstrips on my 1964 Coupe Series 62 this past winter.  To do it right, remove the windshield wiper arms and the chrome oval pieces under the arms (they are turned out with a screwdriver and small hammer counterclockwise), then remove the chrome grills from the cowl (small allen key screws) and remove washer hoses from the washer jets.  The next thing is to remove the cowl completely.  On my 64, there are screws and shims that hold it in place.  There are also two hidden bolts that must come out.  You can remove the small metal panels on each inside of the front doors.  They are simple to remove (two small bolts).  You will then see the two small bolts (one on each side) that go in upside down, holding the cowl on the ends.  Carefully remove the cowl up and set aside.  Scrape off any old residue of the old side rubbers and use a BLACK 3M adhesive to set the new side rubbers.  Let the rubbers adhere for a couple of days to set.  You will see the indents on the rubbers where the cowl sits on top of for a perfect fit.  To see a great picture of it, go to the HELP section on the chapter website.  Jason Edge shows how they rest on the cowl.  They must be set a certain way.  When you glue them, lay something on each rubber (something moderately heavy) so they don't move.  Then reverse steps and put the cowl back, etc., etc.  I hope this helps you.  My email is ddibari56@gmail.com.

Hi Dennis, thank you veeery much for your help.

You are very welcome!  Need anything, just email me.  If you do the job, be careful to glue the new side rubbers on end, as only a thin part of the rubber actually touches the area.  Only use Black cement as you can be liberal around the edges, so they adhere!

Let me know.

     Let me know if you do the side cowl rubber on your Caddy.  I would like to know how they turned out.

Dennis DiBari

Hi Dennis, yes i let you know.

OK.  Good luck Markus.  You can do this, step by step!

The center cap on my 63 wagon came off and ruined the valve stem. But a quick tow back to White Post Resto for a new stem and a gouge removal got us back on the road! Both wagons made it.Continue

Loud air moving sound within carb with cleaner removed

Posted by Dave Fehrle on March 23, 2024 at 3:23pm 8 Comments

While checking my Carter carb with engine running, I took the air cleaner off and there was a very loud hissing sound of air. I placed a piece of paper over the carb and it didn’t move up or down, is this normal?

Vintage Air AC

Posted by Chase on March 21, 2024 at 5:55am 0 Comments

Hey everyone, has anybody done a Vintage Air AC/Heat setup in their car? I want to bypass the old vacuum setup and go with a Vintage Air Gen 2 model. Before I get started, does anyone have any experience with this? (Which model to go with, do’s and dont’s, etc.) It looks pretty involved. Any and all info/pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Who rebuilds original AC  accumulator dryers for 1964 Cadillac? I have been on Classic auto air in Tampa FL wait list for over a year ,  There is one on Old air products web site that looks very similar to the original # 21-4214A but states it fits 1962 Gm cars, The one recommended for a 1964 Cadillac is half the length 21-4215A    What  is everyone using ? I would prefer to be as original as possible. Thanks

'63 Eldorado trumpet horn + 2 standard horns restoration

Posted by Les Eastling on November 15, 2023 at 10:34am 1 Comment

My son, unbeknownst to me, had all three of the horns on our 1963 Eldorado completely restored. We had recently added the Eldorado trumpet horn to the two standard horns and the sound was not very good... we had heard good ones so we knew something was not right... but there was not much we could do to get better sound from the 3 horns. 

There is a restoration service called The Horn Works who my son…
