I was not sure about the script. Looks great with, and very clean without. Customer likes it, so it stayed!

How does the air flow thru the black inserts as i see no holes in the black inserts in the photo ?

Enjoy

no inserts, just blacked the whole thing out and removed where i wanted to see bright-work

Looks like Mark just stops by our website from time to time
Hope he returns to see how much we like the grill work he has done

This is so nice somehow i think a few people with this style in mind will be looking for his shop for a new style grill replacement

Enjoy

I swing in from time to time because I have always loved this era Caddys. This one was supposed to be mine, but a customer saw it the day I brought it home (still a basket case on the trailer) and fell in love with it. Well, the customer is always right, and made the right offer and promised a "blank check" build (my favorite kind).

I'm glad this is getting such great attention. I wasn't sure how well it would be accepted here, seems like most people on this site are trying to stay original.

Original is good. But sometimes customization is better. Your custom grill tops most I seen.

And I think most of us has cars that are not 100% original. In 50+ years there has been some improvement of stuff. Ignition, carburetors, fuel-systems, brakes and so on. So why not this? It really improves the look.

To whom it may concern:

My restoration shop, MAXX f/x Custom Restorations, located in Ohio, is a part time thing evenings and weekends (for now). I have a full time job that affords me the luxury of email and internet access. That's why most of my communication here is during working hours. The best way to contact me is on the phone or email me at work: mschroer@electro-controls.com or cell phone #937-507-1469.

I wish I had taken more photos of the process to go with a write up of the procedure. Unfortunately, I do not have another 63 grill to duplicate

I have a question how did you redo the chrome strips on the grill, so they look new?

Paul, I simply painted the whole grill with self etching black epoxy. Then, used a sanding block with fine sand paper to remove the paint from the raised horizontal bars exposing and refreshing the aluminum. I then clear coated the entire thing to keep the aluminum from oxidizing. This was an alternative to having the grill restored, which was estimated at $3000-5000 to re-anodize. I drew the idea from the corner lamps only having horizontal "floating" bars.

After studing the custom grill the 63 and 64 grills
The 63 is much more suited for this custom grill than a 64 would be
Mostly dew to the 63 having chrome in the center of the grill and the 64 having a painted section that matches the car
The chrome srip just works better in that location on the 63

Can we fit a 63 center chrome grill piece on a 64 ?
Can that be done ?


Enjoy

It would take some extreme modification, but anything can be done given enough time and money! 

The 64 again is not a good candidate for this look as it would require blacking out the now clear front turn signsls
If they are covered in black they will not be seen when working

Enjoy

Posted by maurice lapoiinte on November 24, 2019 at 3:10pm 0 Comments

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…

Another advantage of the Pertronix III

Posted by Doug Scarrow on November 23, 2019 at 11:12am 1 Comment

   Having tried both the II and III I can say the multispark feature of the III offers a smoother idle . It is also easier to install .Does not require removal of the distributor

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
