  1. I use the Victor electronic mouse traps. They work well, but a little sensitive. A few times I have opened a trap that was activated, only to find a centipede inside
  2. Wow, I didn’t know Buick still had verde green in the ‘60s. I had a ‘52 Buick that was the same color

  5. I'll be out 10 years next month. As the saying goes "you'll miss the clowns, but not the circus!"
  6. All I can say is that we used to buy black acrylic lacquer by the gallon and could use it on literally any (non metallic) black car. No color code needed. The only times I would deviate was using Glasso paint on VWs and BMWs for the sole reason that it would flow out so smooth that it would require little to no buffing. Oh, and one other time some guy brought his own nitrocellulose lacquer to paint a couple of fenders on a model A. But, that DuPont gloss black lacquer would have worked perfectly fine on any of these cars
  7. I was an auto painter from 1973-1982. Unless Carlsbad black is a metallic color, non-metallic black paint was the same for any car, kinda like that song “black is black” by Los Bravos 😉
  8. Looking good. Congratulations on your retirement. A good time to pack it in

  10. For some reason I just saw this now. It must have been redirected from another section. A ‘50 Buick convertible will not be a 56R. A super series would be a 56C. It would also have additional body mounts on each side. There are a few vendors that sell inner and outer rocker panels.
