I need to remove my door panels as I'm getting ready to do some bodywork. How do the ventilator window handles come off. I need to remove them to get the panel off. My door panels are pretty trashed along the bottom as well so I need to replace them at some point.
The floor repair ,you plan on doing ,feels like it could be difficult ,due to the way it was repaired in the past
Like to know what your plan of attack is ,regarding replacing the floor pans ,in this case ,and condition
Is it most common to cut the bad out and weld or braze new in ?
Just like to know a little of what goes into ,replacing the less than solid ,floor pans
It's not difficult just time consuming. I'll get all of the previous repaired floors out first. They were riveted over the bad floors. From under the car drill guide holes along the floor braces so that I don't cut through them. Cut the old floors out back to good metal. I will then clean up the floor braces.
I'll then Cleco in the new floor pan temporary and with a sharpie trace on to the new pans. Trim to fit and then I will tack in place moving around from side to side to prevent heat build up with a mig welder. I have some body braces to repair as well. I cut good ones out of the 63 parts car I had. I'm off this week from work due to spring break so plan to get a lot of it done this week. It's a lot of work but I had to do the same on my 50 Chevy.

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…
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…
