"Brandon, what are the issues with your 429? I’m in similar position in that I haven’t found a shop yet that is willing to work on mine. This will only get more challenging as time passes, and if it weren’t cost prohibitive, I love…"
That is an excellent point regarding sticking with the stock bulbs, I’m definitely keeping them as my back up if these burn out or cause other problems. Since I doubt these are returnable, I went back and gave it another go. The…"

Hi All, my ‘64 had all 4 original headlights until recently one high beam burned out. I got a replacement from Jason and then the other high beam went out. I decided to splurge on some repro T-3’s from OPGI, thinking it’d be better to have all 4 new ones.

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…
Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood.
