  1. Gene is his website. Just click on his avatar and message him, he'll get back to ya with the info.
  2. I'm getting ready to tackle the rear suspension on my 65 and had a few questions. Replacing bushes, springs, body mounts, shocks and while I'm there clean and paint everything. Got a few questions to anyone that has done this before. Mainly is where to put the jack stands? Manual says support the frame, but won't that leave no support for the rear end when I remove the control arms except the shocks? I thought stands under the rear end and under the frame towards the rear a little higher with just enough pressure. Then when I drop the arm with a jack everything is supported and the arm
  3. I think this is the way to try. All wiring inside is intact, the harnesses from the firewall in the engine compartment are unplugged. I'll look for the breaker, is it the only one in there?
  4. I'm in the process of putting my 65 back together. It was someone else's project I bought. I need to lower the windows to put the new weather stripping on but, wiring is out of it. Only unplugged not cut up. I plugged in top wiring harness and tried connecting red wire that goes to the horn relay (i figured that's where the hot wire connects so..) to + on battery ,grounded battery. Nothing. There has got to be a way to do this. What part of the harness do I need to power up? Also plugged in driver window switch and rear switches to possibly make a circuit. Does this make sense the way I e
  5. I feel your pain. but, I took mine apart myself and took lots of pics and tagged and bagged everything. I thought about offering pics but you wouldn't know what you are looking at because they are close ups and unless you know what your looking at... It can be done, Ive talked to people that have brought cars home with totes full of parts. Its a challenge but think about the accomplishment when your done. Stand back and say "I built this". Wealth of knowledge on here if you get stuck. Good luck, you must be somewhat mechanical or you wouldn't have gotten the car so, go get em.
  6. Was looking for some parts recently for my 65. Did some searching and Gene at AB&G kept popping up so, gave him a call. He said he had whatever I needed and then some. He is in Pennsylvania, I'm in Kentucky (he said he wouldn't hold that against me). That's where I got the car so, road trip again. 10 or so hours later we made it (wife and I). First thing he asked did you eat? and fixed us sandwiches. Can't say enough good things about Gene, he was great and he did have everything I needed and then some at a great price. I don't think there are enough cars out there to use all
  7. Hmm, I did not get my nuts with last rebuild.
  8. Prices are on the website. differs according to what you have and finish you want.
  9. Just thought i'd share an experience I had recently, thought it was great. I'm in the process of redoing my 65, not a frame off but probably one or two steps down from it. I needed my brake booster rebuilt and I had used Booster Dewey before so it was a no brainer. With things the way they are they were saying they were 4 to 5 weeks out, didn't matter wasn't driving any way. Sent it out, checked a few times on progress. Same person answered the phone every time. Always very nice and jovial. She was professional but very personable. It was almost like she laid the phone dow
  10. Sounds great, could not be better timing as I will be rebuilding my rear suspension this winter so, i'll be needin some. count me in. Joey
  11. Wow, i've seen tarred roofs with less tar than under that car. Wonder what they are hiding?
  12. Jim, yes they did ask. yes it was a factory air car. Thats strange, wonder why AC would determine coil springs. I didn't see anything in the manual about the shim, but that doesn't mean its not there. It was only on the left as you stated, so I guess back they go. Guess they were there for a reason
  13. Hello all. I'm in the process of rebuilding my front suspension and had a question. All components will be new including coil springs I got from CSS, which are the GS specs. When I disassembled it there were metal shims on top of the springs. Two on the drivers side none on the passenger with the rubber insulator on top. I guess they were there to even the car at build time. I have new insulators (the rubber ring), do I need to put the shims back in even though I have new coils? Seems like metal to metal would give a chance to squeak. Guess they didn't before, don't know. Both shims only equal
  14. I have heard of a usage tax. They track your mileage at registration renewal. Makes your joyride a little more costly. Why not, just one more way to track people and sell that info so we get more unwanted solicitations. But hey, they know what's good for us and, its for the good of the people comrad.
