I just wanted to post a tip on renewing my dash pad. My pad was in perfect shape but it was heavily chalked from sun and age. I tried washing and scrubbing with cleaners and had very little success. I put on several different vinyl dressings that just made it look worse. As I had done the paint in a few areas with 0000 steel wool I thought I would try it on the dash. I used very soapy water and light even strokes that covered all areas. It turned out fantastic and now looks brand new with vinyl care products applied. It has a low sheen to it which I would guess is close to factory appearance. I suggest those faint of heart to start in a hidden area of the dash to attempt this. Again excellent results with light even passes of the steel wool. Last note 4/0 or 0000 steel wool is the one I used and appears to be the finest wool you can get.

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.
I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.
With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.
Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
