  1. I work in aluminum die casting. While working in Mexico, at one of my previous employers facilities, a small splash of aluminum fell on a pallet of scrap magnesium parts we used to maintain our aluminum within specs. The only way to calm a mag fire is to smother it. By the time I had it smothered, I had melted the tires completely off of our skidsteer, the whole back wall (30 feet) of our building was melted off and I nearly had to beat a fireman to death with his hose. 10 days later, the internal temp of the dirt piled over the magnesium was still over 1800 deg f. Mag is very dangerous if not handled accordingly Matt
  2. Looks like at least two vehicles were on the 4th floor.
  3. I have extra sets of the escutcheons if needed by anyone Matt
  4. I bought a set on ebay 5-6 months ago. The guy had several listed. None available right now. Were NOS with estucheons and all. Just have to keep your eyes peeled Matt
  5. I will look Pete. May have one more stashed away Matt
  6. So sorry to hear.........Godspeed to a great guy. Will be missed. Matt
  7. Wish everyone all they can dream of for 2020 and beyond! Happy New Year to all my Buick friends. Matt
  8. The other day while looking at the gaps, I noticed one thing of importance: As the hood is in the closed position, the rear hood gap (across the entire rear edge of the hood) on the driver's side is about 5/16" from edge of hood to the cowl. However the same area of the hood on the passenger side is about a 3/32" gap. This means that that the front of the hood (looking towards the windshield) needs to be adjusted slightly to the right, so that the gaps are even. This seems like the best place to start,
  9. Ed I would jump all over that one. Looks like walk in the park compared to my Buick Matt
  10. Car sold itself Matt! Beautiful car at a nice price Matt
