  1. Elco1979@ Yahoo.com as stated earlier by PWB. Tim is easy to deal with and will ship worldwide. I got my sheet metal from him . Inner fenders, fenders, trunk floor, trunk lid. good solid California steel.
  2. Hi gents,under the hood of my`64 at the junction block on the drivers side fender beside the horn relay is a small box 1x 1 .375 . I dont know what it does and when we took the cover off there is a small winding of very fine wire. The wee box has two spade connectors coming from the end and a small black wire attached to one spade connection that goes into the wiring harness. I appears to be fubared as the winding fell out when I removed the cap.Yet another quandary . I will do my best to supply a picture when i can sort out the new phone. thanks in advance ,Scott.

  4. Just wondering if the Halogen headlights are ok to use in my `64 . I read somewhere that they can over heat the light switch. Please advise, Scott

    1st Gen. turn signal cable

    Well, all the info seems to be contained in this post . I ordered a roll of spring wire yesterday and I have a wood lathe that I can run at crawl speed and a Taig mini machinist lathe...how much trouble could I get into ?.Installing the headliner next week so playtime in the shop will have to wait.Thanks to all who contributed with all the size requirements . I dont know if I even need a cable at this point but these cars are getting old and cranky at times.... Hey! you kids ...get off my lawn ! oops maybe it`s the owner.Cheers lads.
  7. I`m wondering if Pertronix ignition module is a good upgrade for my `64 425? What have those of you who have changed over found out? I have read about the failures of the units and hate the idea of not being able to get home. School a young 60 yr old please

    1st Gen. turn signal cable

    Can you give us more info on CJ Lang ?
  9. Ok, what model do I ask for? ( `1964 425 single carb } Wish you were closer, I think I`d have to hook up the dog sled.
  10. I`ve often thought that if they were available , I would have bought aftermarket floor braces ,too bad nobody makes them...they could charge a kings ransom.
  11. I have a set on the old gal now but a couple are looking a little rough.I believe they are( from my investigations ) from a `66 . What would a fellow be looking at ($) replacing the set ? I also would go with the trim rings Ed posted a few months back but I want to be sure they would fit my wheels, has anyone gone this route? I would have to have them shipped to Canuckistan so I would want to get this right.

    Buick cookies

    The way way to a mans heart is through his logo. That was a a super nice thing for her to do!
  13. Will the stock air cleaner fit on the new Edelbrock ?
  14. Back in the day these would have been injection moulded to get front and back (with all the support ribs) done in one go. The tool and die makers machine the mold . 3D printing would be interesting to see , I wonder about the cost but intrigued by the process. please keep me posted.

    front window channel fuzzies

    Re-Pops makes the fuzzies CARS sells them probably many other vendors. The only alternative for turn signal switch I know of is arm signals til you can fix the problem.lol.
  16. Keep what you have ,repair and repaint. 5 min. epoxy ,or cyanoacrylate (crazy glue) reinforce the cracks on the backside with fiberglass matt and glue . Flip it over ,body filler over any imperfections. Paint to match.
  17. Can anyone help a fella out ? I have two rubber tubes on the vacuum storage tank ,one goes through the firewall but I have no clue where the larger barb fitting routes to. Any help is as always greatly appreciated .
  18. Took out my `64 this morning , backed it out of the Garage , shut it off. Went to start it...nada zip zilch. I took out the starter and bench tested it ( You Tube ) all tests positive so I reinstalled the starter and the car started. I don`t want to get stranded somewhere with a bum starter.I`m thinking there is flat spot on the armature. I`ve experienced in the past when the starter would whirr a few times before it would engage .Perhaps it`s time for a replacement?
  19. Finally got to go for a wee drive around the cul de sac since reinstalling the newly rebuilt trans ( ST 400) in my `64 . no more clunks or lurches. Now onto the interior and I can take Mrs for ice cream in style. Next time I think I will have a seat as the grandsons p stool was a bit nerve racking , but I couldn't wait.😊

    Riviera Custom Built For you

    I can`t find these plaques on his website . Where should I be looking?
  23. Bidding on Ebay auctions are a farce, with bid sniping apps like Bidnapper . If I use E bay i only look for buy it now sales. If I don't like the price, I don't buy it.there are many gougers that add extreme shipping and handling charges. It`s not fun anymore
