  1. Update: I installed 2 - 4 oz bottles of AC Delco Limited slip axle lubricant and all works fine. One post on a Chevy forum from a guy said he tried a brand other than GM and the chatter was still there. After installing the GM stuff, all was good. Enough for me to not cheap out and buy another brand. Other posts from people stated 1 bottle was not enough, hence me using 2.

    Brake Pedal sticking

    Lesson learned. You live in another country. Don’t throw anything away. 🙂
  3. All good points. I’m always looking for one of those stalled projects. I’m happy the OP at least spelled Rivy correctly with a “Y” and not Rivi with an “I”. Its Rivy or Rivie. Sorry, just one of my teacher OCD pet peeves. 😀
  4. Good Info for many of us that own other GM vehicles. I have a 72 Grand Prix that is experiencing the chatter while turning but only after driving a while. I installed the Castrol Limited Slip Diff oil after a recent service but was suspect it wasn't enough. The car is a "Barn Find" with only 35k miles so I had no point of reference as what it drove like prior to the fluid change.
  5. To answer the original post and to come full circle with the topic... 15" wheels. 😁
  6. Looks like a nice survivor in SoCal.
  7. I think that’s how mine ended up being mounted up high close to the glass.

    Wanted : door lock knob

    Are they the same as Cadillac and some other GMs of the era. I may have one from a 64 Cadillac restoration I did.
  9. I restored a 64 Cadillac Eldorado 20 years ago and Jenkins was the best for interior trim materials and kits. I worked directly with Hill Jenkins and happy to hear they’re still turning out excellent products.
  10. The Buick Open was in LaJolla CA for as long as I can remember. Then it became the Farmers Open (insurance) a few years ago. I don’t golf and don’t know why the switch but do miss seeing the new Buick’s every year driving near my home on the coast.
  11. I don’t bother looking at OPGI’s catalog anymore.
  12. Interesting and I have a question. My 64 drivers side manual mirror was mounted on the top of the door skin so it practically touched the door glass. It was a Buick logo mirror and when I had to change he door skin some later, I found one with a remote mirror where the holes were lower on the side of the door. My question is for a manual mirror, is the correct the placement higher or lower as I described? Same question for the passenger side if I add a mirror.

    Purchase Advice?

    At $500 I would buy it. Not sure how bad the floors and rust is but I've revived many like this. From what I can see it can be cleaned up and the paint buffed out. Put $500 in it, new tires and brake hydraulics, and then stop. Sell the dream to someone else. Ask $4500 and go down from there. Consider your "profit" payment for your labor. Put that toward a '65. if too rusty or it is not a good runner, part it out.
  14. I've been running Hankooks on all of my old cars. The H724 I hear is being discontinued so I went with their fairly new Kinergy H737 PT. Very happy and as one review stated took very little weight to balance. They also offer an ST version. Not sure which offers white stripes.

    Is the last close up photo of the vent the final look?
