  1. Can you provide some names of the suppliers you're thinking of?
  2. Thanks tried calling but no answer, I'll give it a shot tomorrow.
  3. Hi, I'm in SoCal for a week trying to help my sister with my dads 2 MOPAR cars, he recently passed away. There are some really basic things that need to be done to them (weatherstripping all around is gone or rotted, window guides are missing making the windows bind, etc) to keep them protected as good as possible while we figure out where we are going to end up keeping the cars. My question is, is there a parts store in southern california that I can call and see if they have these items? I only have 5 days here before I have to head back (S. Korea) and would like to get as much done as possible. I've looked online and it seems all of the parts stores I could find were on the east coast. The cars are: 1970 Plymouth Fury sedan C body 1971 Plymouth Satellite sedan Thanks

  5. Hey everybody, looks like I wont have my 40 dodge done in time for my wedding on Oct 29th this year. I was hoping to have it done so we could use that car to go from the ceremony to the hotel where we'll leave on our honeymoon. Would any of you guys on here be willing to get free dinner/gas payed for, to get us to the hotel in style? I'm looking for late 30's to early 40's model years, thanks for being awesome!
  6. My dad actually restored a legitimate 71 Fury police car with the growler and everything. He was able to trace the VIN back to the department that operated it. LOS ANGELES COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT (LASD) - PLYMOUTH FURY by Navymailman, on Flickr
  7. That's too bad you aren't farther south. If it's still for sale in 5 months, I may be moving closer to make it worth it.
  8. Every picture I have seen of a D14 Dodge the front bumper does not have these two upper portions. Was the a bumper from another model car, aftermarket addition, or a homebrew setup from a guy pretty good with metal working? http://i.imgur.com/BVgR1.jpg (Hi Res)
  9. Could you imagine, coming out from your basement or back from a trip and seeing your hard work, pride and joy, the product of your hobby in pieces beyond repair? I would have a heart attack.
  10. What would be the best way to keep moisture from affecting the metal then? I thought the primer would cap it. Also, this would protect it from UV damage right?
  11. Just an update, primered the side to be hit by the sun and freed up a locked brake drum.
  12. Thanks for all the replies, I am missing the lower flywheel cover and didn't put 2 and 2 together and I am also missing the battery cover. So the owner must have thrown all of that into the trunk for some reason and just never put the parts back together.
  13. Can anyone help me ID these? I know that E is the base of a bumper jack but the others I have no idea.
  14. Something lately that has been on my mind a lot is the safety of our hobby. How was asbestos used in the cars from the 30's to the 70's? I know it was used in the brake pads and brake lines, but was it used anywhere else? What are safe ways to remove this completely? It seems the opinion of a lot of people on these sites is I'm too old to get Asbestosis so I don't care. I'm only in my 20's so that's not true in my case. I'd really hate for the hobby I love to kill me in 20 years.
  15. Great video! I never really understood how they operated till I saw that.
  16. I went to that site before hoping for some good material, but the pictures they posted are just too far away and not good enough to see any real detail.
  17. Looking to get some interior pictures of a D14 sedan, the upholstery is completely shot and I wanted to get an idea of what the original looked like in order to recreate it. This is what I have so far.
  18. Doesn't look too bad considering, also I'm glad that the rust spots look like they're all on flat surfaces without any complicated bends to try to recreate when I fabricate my own patches.
  19. I was thinking the same thing, really wish I had a garage to put this in. Had some time to start working with some of the severe rust spots and figured I'd add some pictures.
  20. Alright, I have about 2 1/2 weeks left before I have to head to Mississippi to get some training done for 3 1/2 months and I was wondering. What should I get done right now to prep it for sitting while I'm gone and not have it deteriorate anymore?
  21. In the early 70's southern california was plymouth and chevy only for the Sheriffs Department.
  22. Everyone seems to be damaging their valves with compression gauges lately. Sorry to hear that.
