Doodled a bit in fusion, and made a lock bezel and some letters. These will probably end up on my toolbox, but they'll need to be resized up and flattened because they are fender letters. Anyway, it…Continue

Radio Belts

Posted on January 22, 2017 at 11:20am 10 Comments

I just finished repairing a few 66 stereos, and after fixing up the circuits to make them play again (another discussion), I was left with the usual problem; trying to find a belt that wouldn't slip.

I've tried:

  • 'glue together' kits -- they can break off at any time, so no-go.
  • rubber dial belts available online -- they stretch and…

64 eldo bench seat covers

Posted on February 16, 2015 at 9:00am 12 Comments

Just getting started on a new set of seat covers, this is as far as I made it last night.    Only using vinyl, but perforations are pretty similar, and I'll have the patterns made for a leather copy later on.   I'll post pics up as I go forward.

baku wood

Posted on July 18, 2014 at 9:17pm 10 Comments

So I bought a sheet of paper backed makore (baku) veneer to redo the wood on my 64.  It seems like the original has a urethane clear coat.  What's everybody using for a final finish?   I have plenty extra to play with, I think I want to start with an automotive clear urethane, but what is the norm?   It says "hand-rubbed in the advertising, which would lead me to think it was lacquer, but lacquer thinner tests make me think they used urethane.  

Glue suggestions would also help, I'm…

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?
