  1. $2,700 and then you still gotta buy the air cleaner too, sheesh!!
  2. The flasher is on the fuse box. Two screws to loosen the panel and you have access. I'd say it's there. There is also a switch connection at the base-ish area of the steering column that maybe came loose.
  3. Tough choice. In general, I think silver is a great color for first-gen cars, especially 63-64s. Much better than the baby blue. However, a KX car is just going to be a bit more valuable, despite the inconsistencies.
  4. Yeah I understand the typical cold start issues and this is a recent problem. The choke doesn’t seem to close the plate.
  5. Problem with my stock choke is it doesn't work on cold start, so I have to sit there for a minute giving it gas until the fuel bowl is OK, and I checked the air tube and it's fine. Once the car has fuel, it idles fine and doesn't die, etc. I figured the electric choke would improve things.
  6. So any advice from you experienced folks? What did you tap the power line into? I notice the instructions suggest removing the carb, but that seems unnecessary (I hope).
  7. I am big fan of Griot's Garage products. For one, it's a local company, but also the stuff they make is great. A little pricey, compared to what you might find on the shelf at O'reillys, but I have bought all kinds of different things from them. I have used their Speed Shine for probably 20 years! Their polishes are really nice, they make an all-in-one compound I have used a few times now.
  8. I bought the taillamp bezels, lenses and emblems from Cars. All are excellent.
  9. Congrats! Glad you found one to your liking!
  10. Well, my car isn't even the original color, so I don't fret over show stuff. I just want a good driver and I do my best to make small "tasteful" changes. And yes, I have a storage shelf with a stock stereo on it
  11. I did this same RetroSound setup in my 64. Works great.
  12. Yeah I see the sticker on it says Saturday. I’ll be gone by then. I predict $85k
  13. I’m here. Anyone know when it will be on the block roughly? Looks really good in person.
  14. I don't know about Texas but around here I think we have environmental fees for disposing of the chemicals used in the process. It adds up. If you got $400 for a bumper, that's astounding. My assumption with chrome has always been, if you have ask, you don't wanna know $$$.
  15. I used Queen City Plating in Mukilteo WA to rechrome a transmission plate for my 64. But they told me they don't do bumpers anymore because of the labor (the shop is just one guy I think now).
