Thanks to Jason's expert advice, I was able to remove the fender trim on my 63 de Ville without removing the fender. Pics contain the locations of the 3/8 in nuts and how to access them. My clips were trashed so I ordered 10 from Jason. He has the new once with nylon nuts.

Wow! Those are great Visuals.  We might use this for a future Tech Tip Series on removing trim.

If you don't mind I am going to insert here in the reply to see all at once:

Forgot to mention removing the front wheel to easily access the wheel well bolts. I put the wheel back on to lower the lift and roll it backwards to get the door fully open to access the hinge panel.

And to do a little self-promotion, here is a picture of the medium sized trim fasteners with bonded washer and nylon lock washer, used on front fender, rear qtr, and inner door section (of you want to replaced that snap on inserts). I sell these for $3 each ($2.25 after Chapter Discount).

Jason,

     Keep me in mind for that passenger side trim for my 64 Series 62.  I had it off in the winter and want to replace it if you come across one.  Pretty sure you have me on the wait list.  I have all the access points ready; just need the trim.

Thanks,

Dennis DiBari

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 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…
