  1. 36 Buick generator

    Copperjohn: If you have not yet found one I think I may be able to help out. I owned a '36 Roadmaster which I believe is the same as the Century. Also a complete distributor is on my shelf. --Bob Mahoney
  2. WTB - 1953 Buick Frame

    I would suggest you post the model of your Buick. Some one can correct me if I'm mistaken, but I seem to recall there were at least two different frames perhaps three depending on the model in 1953. --Bob
  3. Mirror re silvering

    I have had very good luck with my local glass shops. They of course send them out and usually come back in 2 to 3 weeks. Try them and good luck.--- Bob
  4. Thanks Rick. I have been looking at several top of the line upholsterers but none seemed to have the kits for a '61. '62 and up seems like everybody has them. Lebaron Bonney are a top notch company to work with. Thanks again ! --Bob--
  5. Looking for a supplier for an original kit including door panels. Thanks everyone, Bob
  6. What was here in my F32

    Looks like a socket for a cigarette lighter. Bob
  7. Hubcaps-1936-stainless?

    RL- It was several years ago and was done in Toronto, Ontario. At the time it was about 1/2 the US dollar cost. Unfortunately the plater is deceased., BE. Your solution is very ingenious. The '36 cap is the same type of design/construction, the skin is about 8" in diameter. If I have to do another set I will use your method, thanks for the info. Bob
  8. Hubcaps-1936-stainless?

    When I had mine for my '36 restored, they had to be separated, restored, and then silver soldered all around the cap. The plating chemicals can not be allowed to get under the skin, or you will have to start looking for more to replace them, after they are "eaten" up by the chemicals trapped in between layers. --Bob--
  9. The Otto was manufactured in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I would suggest contacting the automotive section of the Free Public Library in Philadelphia. -Bob.
  10. AACA Antique Automobile Magazines, large pile to get rid of

    I always took a pile to Carlisle and Hershey. Put a free sign on them and "take as many as you want". Always had repeat customers whom took them back to their motels and campers to read at night. Worked for me ! Bob
  11. Grease Fittings I would like to know more about

    I was always under the impression that he cap on the water pump fitting was to prevent the pump from pushing water from the pump out thru the grease port. I know I had an fancy all brass one on my 1911 car. -Bob.
  12. Buyers beware of scam!!

    One of my most highly regarded literary authors Mark Twain spoke of " If you don't read the newspaper's you are uniformed, but if you do read them you are misinformed." I've always admired him since I was old enough to read. And I'll continue to read the published word until my eyes fail. I do not condemn the person that wishes to look at his/hers screen, however my preference is to sit in my recliner laid back with a book or newspaper. Probably just getting old and set in my ways.--Bob
  13. 1929 interior door handle terminology

    Thank you Spinneyhill !!!
  14. 1929 interior door handle terminology

    I am not sure of the complete process of "electroless nickle". I do know that I had 5 - 36" steel rims redone with "electroless nickle" and found the cost was very favorable. Less than 2/3 s the cost of regular nickle plating. The end result on the car was outstanding.

    A " Butler" finish is a very fine scratching of the original plating.
