Excellent tech tip.

I wish I knew about this sooner. I decided to get a new rear plastic window because of the yellow and I saw some cracking. What I do now is before I put the top down which is a map folding science all its own is to unzip the window and lay it open in the trunk. I also with the new window began using some stuff I have used for years on my boat plastic side windows called Klear-To-Sea. It has a cost to it but it does do what the label says, namely anti-fog, anti finger print, anti-smudge, reduces glare, and semi repairs small not too deep scratches. I'm not pushing the product but it works on the boat where if the same stupid stuff happened in my car those people would be walking    

The convertible top manual (previously posted on this site), suggests releasing the top from the front windshield locks to reduce strain before unzipping the rear window.

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…

The insulator…
