Hello all,

I haven't been on the forum for quite a while and do wish you all well. I would like to thank all of you who have purchased replacement rear trailing arms from me in the past. I realize that there are still customers out there for this product but I am at a bit of a cross roads. I would like to continue but over the last 4 years the cost for machining and waterjet services as well as steel have gone up and my price hasn't changed.

I would like to increase my price to $420 from $385 but would also have them powder coated. I am about to start making the next batch and would like some input before going forward. 

Thanks,

Dan

Hello Dan I hope you continue providing trailing arms. I plan to order a pair later this year

Jan

I have them on my own 63. Such an improvement. The pinion angle vibration is gone.  I can feel the difference in the ride quality. It took some of the boat sway away and gave an improved ride. 

I also have the inserts that go into the stock trailing arm, for those who want the stock look when looking underneath.   I was gong to install them on my other 63, but that car was sold. 

My 2 cents; worth the time and money.

Hi Russ,

Thanks for the input. I am looking at having the machine shop take over the complete manufacturing process from start to finish. It is getting to be a bit of a chore as I have had a few health issues lately and off loading the manufacturing and powder coating will take a burden off me. I don't plan on shuffling off any time soon but if I did, I would like to leave something that my daughters could manage and keep the product alive.

Cheers,

Dan

I have turned off…

Map Light

I have a 63 Cadillac Series 62 convertible.  Can someone post a picture showing what the map light should look like?

Mine is a meta air vent like grating, which just does not look right for a map light.

Thanks in advance.  Rick

Upgrades for the Coupe de Ville

Posted by Kurt on December 24, 2021 at 6:00pm 4 Comments

At long last I finally have power vent windows! I started collecting the parts 3 years ago. The one thing I could not find until recently is the 6 button driver's switch. Jason finally pulled one in and was more than generous with pricing. Thanks Jason! Installing the vent window motors was the easiest part of the project but many other tasks were spawned by this project.

  1. There is a hole in the door panels where the window crank was. I considered putting a hub cap emblem there…

center bolt size for crankshaft pulley

Posted by Dan Norris on December 6, 2021 at 3:13pm 2 Comments

I need to pull my distributor, and still have the cork in the end of the crankshaft. What is the bolt size needed to thread a bolt in there to be able to turn the motor over with a pull handle and socket to get it to TDC exactly before I pull the distributor out?
