  1. Yes, that is similar. Mine looks not as tall. Thanks for the help Dan
  2. Hey All, I've had this piece of chrome (or stainless?) trim for some 35+ years. I pulled it off a car in the woods when I was in my early teens in the mid 70's. I don't recall what car it came from, but believed it was from the 50's. There were several cars in a group so I'm not sure. It's been hanging on my wall for the longest time and I'm thinking that maybe someone could use it. I've browsed hundreds photos on Google looking at dozens of different cars and I've struck out. At one time 10 years ago I though it was from a Hudson, but I haven't been able to verify that. It also looks similar to the front fender side trim of a 65 Plymouth Fury but its too tall. It's in excellent shape with no dings. It's approximately 19.25 inches long and 3.25 inches tall. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Dan
  3. Ron, I used GUNK carburetor cleaner. It comes in a 1 gallon paint can. There is a small metal basket inside that allows you to lower your parts down into the liquid. Clean as much off of your parts with a rag or pape rtowel and then lower them into the can for 20 minutes, then pull them out. Then a little scrubbing with a toothbrush and you are all set. Rinse your parts with water and blow out all the nooks and crannies with air. Dan
  4. Here are a few before and after pictures of my carburetor. It's a good example of what gas can do to a carburetor from sitting in it for 30+ years. The engine was occasionally started which means the gas in the carb was replenished and then left to evaporate time and time again. Dan
  5. Hi Ron, Yes, the wife pretty much understands what comes along with a project like this. Previous projects include building a full size replica of the Lost in Space robot in my basement. So she's used to seeing all kinds of 'parts" laying around the house. Dan
  6. Ron, thanks. This weekend I;m rebuilding the carburetor. It's 10 deg. out so I need a few inside jobs to keep this project going over the winter. Dan
  7. Geno, Thanks for the welcome and a welcome to you as well. Any pictures of your Turino you can show us? Dan
  8. Wow, love to find a reprint of that article. I would like to see how they shoe-horned it in. Dan
  9. Chequenman, thanks. Not sure that's the direction I'm going. But I appreciate the advise. Dan
  10. Hey All, I just joined the forum and I'm excited to dive into my Mercury Comet project. Picked it up in November from my mother-in-law. My father-in-law passed away a short time ago and this was his restoration project. I was fortunate enough to be asked if i was interested in the car and I jumped on it. I've been thinking about getting a car to restore when my kids are done with college (one just finished and the other is a Junior) so the timing is about right. I'm hoping to make many friends here and learn a little at the same time. Here's a picture of "Ruby" (named by my father-in-law), my 62 Comet. More are at my web site linked below.
