  1. Dashboards Recovered

    Hello, I recover dashboards with vinyl for a flat fee of $500 which includes preparation of the old dash, padding, vinyl and labor. A sample of a 1959 Cadillac dash can be seen by following the link below: (Please note that the dash was prepped by the owner, hence the slight bump where the original cracks were.) 1959 Cadillac Dash If I can be of service please write me at Crin@undercoverupholsteryandpaint.com Thank you, Crin
  2. I can reproduce your door panels and cover them in your choice of material. I would need you to send me your old ones so I can use them as a pattern. The cost is $150 and that includes the water-proof door panel board and the correct underlying foam. Examples can be seen here: www.undercoverupholsteryandpaint.com Thank you, Crin

  5. Packard Vehicle ID Plate

    Hi All, These are the same as the ones that sold on ebay for $350. That's what prompted me to advertise them. I thought $350 was a rip-off for this. They are different from the ones that Packards International sells for $45. The ones from PI are embossed which is unlike the originals. The originals were flat as are these. Regards.
  6. Packard Vehicle ID Plate

    Hi Bob, It is aluminum as you've pointed out. It is the same thickness as the original and the same length and width but much lighter. I'm not sure what the originals were made of and I only have these in aluminum. Warm regards.
  7. Packard Vehicle ID Plate

    If you need one please let me know. They are $95 each and shipping is free in the continental U.S. Regards.
  8. Hi again, Actually that's the old price. If you call them they will give you a price on the order of $460 for the set. I think I can save you a few dollars. Regards.
  9. None taken - free trade and all that... I can provide the best quality gaskets and I thought I was priced below the competition. May I ask where you found them cheaper - maybe I need to change suppliers. Thanks!
  10. Hi All, Well I wish I would have done this to my '51 Buick ... Here's a website I created to track the progress of the frame off restoration on my '36 Pakcard. I created it mostly so I wouldn't lose the pictures in case my computer crashed. Hope you enjoy. Pre-War Packard Restorations
  11. Hi All, Can anyone please tell me how to remove the shifter from this car? It's a 1936 Packard 1401 touring sedan by the way. I removed the three screws that hold the chrome base in place. Then I removed two metal spacers from either side and a small spring from the driver's side. I was told to just put the transmission in neutral and lift up on the shifter. I tried this and it comes up quite a bit and then snaps right back down as if it was spring loaded. If I can pull this off I can get the body off the frame. It's really holding up the show. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Please e-mail me at dimatnc@yahoo.com if you have any suggestions as I don't check this forum very often. Thank you in advance, Crin
  12. Please buy my old Buick

    Hey Adam, Yeah we saw all his cars there ... it was really sad. Teresa started crying - she said it really hit her that he's gone. I sold the Buick so that I could buy the '36 Packard. It's a whole new ball game ... this car is very different from anything I've restored and parts are quite a bit more expensive. Oh well ... it's only money, time and busted knuckles. If I can figure out how to remove the shifter from the car I can go ahead and pull the body off. By the way if anyone knows how to pull that *&%^$# shifter out of the car please, please tell me.
  13. Please buy my old Buick

    Hi All, Our '51 Super is up for sale and I want to make sure it goes to a good home. Please see the link. Crin & Teresa's Old Buick Thanks,
  14. Moving on up? Maybe ...

    Hi All, Well I never thought this day would come but I sold our '51 Super yesterday. It's ok ... I'm over it ... mostly because we bought a 1936 Packard 1401. See the attached picture. All I can tell you at this point is that Packard parts are "just a little" more expensive than Buick parts. Ask the man who's restoring one! Cheers!
