  1. 1936 Special seat question

    The front seat cushion in my 1936 Special sedan is rapidly disintegrating so I've decided to try my hand at reupholstering. I at least want to get it so that I can drive around without it being a literal pain in the rear. I have carefully disassembled the old cushion and sewn a practice cover. My question is how far do I compress the springs when attaching the cover? Does anyone have a 36 with original or new upholstery that could measure the distance from the bottom of the cushion to the top along the front edge (see pictures). Here's a picture of what was left of the seat and my amateur attempt at a new cover.
  2. 1936 Buick question

    Sorry it took so long but here are the pictures of the back of the front gender and the running board.
  3. 1936 Buick question

    Tom, Yes there is a piece at the back of the front fender. I can post a picture tomorrow. There was some sort of welting between the fenders and the running board base. It looked the it was normal welting at the rear, but at the front fender the running board rubber goes over the fender to running board connection. It seems like they just cut the piping off the welt and left the rest as a gasket. Currently I have welting in both places but I'm not sure what to do with it at the edges. If I leave it as is it will interfere with the chrome trim piece that runs along the edge of the running boards and fenders, but to just cut it off would look ugly. I'll post some pictures tomorrow that may better explain. Greg
  4. 1936 Buick question

    Here's a couple of photos. The car is dirty but it's below zero right now so it's not getting washed anytime soon.
  5. 1936 Buick question

    Yes, the 36 Buick had welting on both the front and rear fenders. Greg
  6. 1930 body

    Hi all, Just to add to the database of pictures here are some from my 1930 66. I believe it is a Hayes body. Greg
  7. I found this hood ornament in a box of tools I recently picked up. Can anyone give me an idea of it's age. Thanks in advance.
  8. 1940 Super Engine Splash Pan

    Here are the ones from my '36 Special. There is also a third one that goes between the frame rails and under the harmonic balancer.
  9. I've got a number of 1936 parts for sale on eBay. They are mostly pads and grommets from Steele Rubber or Metro Moulded Parts and are new in unopened packages. Some fit other years as well.

  10. Hopefully last question on 36 rear bumper

    In the end I went with the gravel guard last as you said. It seemed to fit better that way.
  11. I'm in the process of reinstalling my rear bumper and gravel guard. The question I have is where the gravel guard goes in relation to the bumper and brackets. Is the sequence bumper, gravel guard mounts, bumper mounts or bumper, bumper mounts, gravel guard mounts?
  12. Another 36 bumper question

    Thanks for the reply. Turns out that my daughter helped me remove them years ago and when I looked closer she had written RR and LR on them and they are curve up.
  13. Another 36 bumper question

    The bumper mounting brackets for the 36's have a slight s-curve in them. What is the proper way to mount them. Curve up so the bumper slightly higher from the ground or curve down closer to the ground. Mine are currently curve up and the trunk lid still clears the bumper, which is the only thing I can see mattering.
  14. 1936 bumper gravel deflector

    Thanks, I wasn't sure if it went at the top or bottom of the bumper.
  15. It's time for me to spruce up the rear bumper brackets and the gravel shield on my 36 sedan. Does anyone know what color the gravel shield should be painted? I'm assuming it's black or body color. I'm leaning towards a semi gloss black.
