    brake adjustment 36 zephyr help

    Great question, I will be doing the same this winter to my 37. Let us know what you find out. Thanks, Raul
  2. Hello, I've been doing some work on my 37 sedan and found this problem. Both glass lenses are broke and one was missing the metal ring that holds the lens in the housing. I already have a set of the reproduction lenses but would be interested in the glass ones if anyone has a set. I mostly need the metal ring/band that holds the lens in place. Thanks ** I will be checking with all the vendors on Monday.***

    Wow, that's very helpful! Thanks for taking the time to write all that information. Now I have a good idea of what I need to start looking for.

    1959 Electra 225 convertible

    Thanks, I've always liked 59's and couldn't pass on a convertible. For those who were wondering, I did find a old post says the extra length is from the rear quarters.
  6. Hello, I just picked up a 59 Electra 225 convertible with some rust issues. I'm going to start looking for panels so I was wondering what is shared among the 3 models. I know the 225 is the longest model but is that length in the fenders or quarter panels? Will any 2 door 59 deck lid fit? Mine is tweaked and there is some rust in the weatherstripping channel. Also the panel that runs above the trunk lid and between the fenders needs to be replaced. I did find the buick-59 site but not sure it's still active. Thanks for the help! Raul

    HOW TO CLEAR YEAR OF MFG. PLATES IN CA .

    I did this about 2 years ago. I just called the 800 number and asked if I could use the number. They were able to tell me if the number was in use. It was still a issue though when I went to the dmv office to do the paperwork. They were confused and recommended that I don't turn in the paperwork. I did anyway and the plates were approved by Sacramento. This was for a 37 plate by the way. I have to do the same with my 65 and I'm not looking forward to it. Good luck.

    Looks like a great place to walk though.
  10. I haven't done it but there are plenty of different lights you could use. Your car, do what you like.

    57 buick dash panel finish

    My 57 special has ps, pb, radio, and a chrome dash insert. Built in Canada. It's not engine turned so I'm thinking it's probably not right. My car isn't stock so I'm not concerned and I like the way it looks.
