    My 1931 Buick project- the saga begins...

    Dave, Saw that the outer door handles are not on your car and that your door panels are off. Do you know how the outer door handles attach to the inner mechanism? I have a Fisher body 1930 Cadillac and am missing one rear door handle and the one on the front just spins but doesn't open the door. Luckily I can still get in the passenger's side! The Fisher body manual isn't too clear on this (at least for me). Curious what you have learned from your car about this. Looks like the car is coming together well, have really enjoyed reading your updates. David Farlow

    1927 Buick Standard (27/27)

    Curious if anyone responded about sources for stone grilles. I have a 1929 Cadillac that could use one as well. Hoping someone is making them. David
  3. The cap would not have been threaded in, had two ears. From what I can tell, the basic cap is smooth and is a slight dome like a gas cap would be. The ears of the cap would fit a space of 2 3/8" and the rest of the inner hole would only be 2 1/4". The outer of the cap would be at least 3 3/4" to line up with the chrome base of the grille shell. I think other GM cars like Buick may have used a similar type base, but Buick caps have a fin on top apparently. The photos with the goddess ornament shows the cap base as it would have been on a plain cap. I've seen a couple of these cars with Moto-Meters as well through a cap with a serrated edge. Maybe I can find a part number somehow. The American Arrow Corp ornaments are beautiful, stainless steel no less. Expensive, but it looks like they are well worth the price. Maybe after a few other things are done. DRF

    Source for red rubber cooling hoses

    Thanks everyone, the Restoration Supply ones are exactly what I am looking for! David
  5. Not yet, joined the AACA first. I did go to the Cadillac LaSalle Club meeting in Michigan a few weeks ago. Didn't come up with any leads there beyond contacting Dick Shappy Classic Cars in Rhode Island. Sent an email, hadn't heard back yet.
  6. Anyone have a source for "red" rubber cooling system hoses? Needed for a 1929 Cadillac and other projects.
  7. Need to replace a stolen radiator cap for a 1929 Cadillac. Cap did not have threads. Doesn't have to be perfect, but serviceable. Can be a plain cap or one with ornament including later 1930 - with Goddess. Any leads as to whom to check with would be great. Don't know the part number.
