Hi Guys, thought I had bought all the rubber needed for my Zephyr club coupe from Bob Boos some time ago, but now find the pads that go between the tail light housings and the body are incorrect, called Bob, but there is no answer at his store, so I need another source for these pads, the Lincoln part numbers are 16H13420 and 21, R+L, the ones Bob sent are too small, probally for a 1940, anyone know any body other than Bob, that sells this rubber?? Thanks a lot, Rolf

Rolf, Try patwalshrestorations.com he does list some items for 40 & 41 LZ coupes. Also try Narragansett Reproductions, Box 51 Wood River Jct., RI 02894. Sorry I don't have a telephone # handy.Could be Bob Boos came back East for the holidays. Try him next week.

Bill

Those sure look right Ricko, wish they had a part # with them, as '40 and'41 use different pads, the '40's are smaller, and we think that is what Boos sent us by mistake. Refuse to deal with E-Bay, but will try to contact this fellow in Wisconsin, and check the part numbers, thanks again, Rolf

Refusing to deal with E-Bay seems a bit unmillenium type american. You sure you not from Colorado Rolf? Posted Image

Oh Dave, you are such a foil for my letfto leanings out here in sunny California, I don't know how to respond, but E-Bay, with it's idiotic bidding and policys involving it, really infuriate me, and where the un-informed may well frequent it, as in this case, it is paramount that the astute do their best to circumvent it, I have spoken, Rolf

whew, that was cool Rolf, you called me uninformed from the right coast and basically an ignorant neanderthal but in such a way that I felt good about it. I am Impressed. Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Not at all Dave, my old Socialist Grandmother used to say, "To each according to their taste, said the old lady as she kissed a cow", live and let live, it is a glorious adventure, I was merely expressing my abject opinion, Rolf

David -

Ya gotta understand, Rolf is from California, where the state government would like to 1) pass a law demanding that all screwdriver ends be dulled up so people couldn't cut themselves, and 2) put a $10 environmental disposal fee on each one Posted Image. Maybe Rolf can dust off his grandmother's Socialist hat and lobby the state gov't. to close down Ebay, that bastion of "cheats and suckers." Posted Image

Me? I grew up years ago, and don't need my Momma or anyone else to tell me where I can or can't go to buy things. And to put to rest the rantings of the uninformed, you *can* get some good deals on ebay if you look hard enough:

Not sure what California has to do with E-bay, my socialist Grandmother was from Minnesota, and the best thing about Cal is the climate, but E-bay?? Educate me, Rolf

Rolf, you say that the uninformed may frequent E-Bay, then you ask to be informed. I am confused. Posted Image

why are socilaists ussually from cold climates except of course California socialists?

Hey Rolf -

Not sure what California, your grandmother, or Socialism have to do with eBay, either, but *you* brought 'em to the table, and so I played the hand I was dealt! Posted Image
Minnesota? You'll have to say hello sometime to my sister, who's gone native in the Minneapolis area.

Seriously, eBay is like every other automotive swapmeet I've been to (I'm expecting my first LZOC one this Feb. to break the mold):

1. 90% junk and overpriced
2. 9% not junk, but still overpriced.
3. 1% worth looking at.

But eBay does have advantages:

1. I can see the feedback ratings and I have *some* recourse, unlike a swapmeet.
2. I can do it from home, and not spend gas $ and entrance fees to get in.
3. Ebay goes 24-7, regardless of weather.

The clock I bought (see the link in my earlier) message was a good deal for me, but no doubt for every one like that, there are a 100 or more not-so-good deals. But hey, if someone doesn't want to look at eBay, fine with me. That means fewer potential bidders.

Does all this mean that people who kiss cows are too smart to buy on E Bay?

I am not sure Bill. I don't even think I understand the question, but it has been pointed out to me very recently, that there is a way overpriced version of my favorite car on there right now, a black 16H77, see pic, check it out, might be right up your alley, Rolf

Thank goodness that guy didn't try to sell his wares on E-Bay. This way you get to pay for something without really seeing or touching it, pay for it before you receive it, and hope the guy is honest enough to send it and that the mail won't get lost.
That's a lot better. Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
