  1. I read it differently. Here is a link to an article in the LA Times: https://www.latimes.com/business/story/2020-06-25/new-california-truck-mandate-100-000-zero-emission-commercial-haulers-sold-annually-by-2030. It says the following: "In effect, the board ordered manufacturers of medium-duty and heavy-duty commercial trucks to begin selling zero-emission versions in 2024, with 100,000 sold in California by 2030 and 300,000 by 2035." It appears to apply only to heavy and medium duty trucks, so that seems to leave pickup trucks out of it for the most part (I think t
  2. Although I've never obtained a quote for the work I have to believe it would be incredibly expensive to have a walnut steering wheel custom made. Have you looked at OE walnut wood steering wheels online or from others on this forum? The advantage is that is is guaranteed to fit, and I believe you can purchase the walnut steering wheel, hub, Riv emblem and horn bar for pennies on the dollar when compared to a quantity-1 custom piece.
  3. I did the same thing but I used a two stacked pieces from a furnace air filter.
  4. I met Carl at the ROA meet in St. Charles IL in 2015. He was a very fine person and I really enjoyed talking to him. I took this photo of him with his '64 Super Wildcat.
  5. Interesting. Thanks for taking the time to do that.
  6. What color is your interior and what shape is your current dash pad in? Could you share a photo?
  7. To follow up on the felt for the vent diffuser: You can make your own from black felt from a craft store. I raided my daughter's crafts bin for my material and it worked out perfectly.
  8. I guess this is what I was thinking of. I should have said access 'plug' rather than panel. This plug is in my driver's side wheel well and I have a vague recollection that it allows access to one of the three mounting bolts via a long socket and extender. I didn't use this method. I simply removed the fender. Please note that my example is from a '64. I'm assuming it is the same as the '65, but I'm not sure.
  9. It's really strange you don't have the access panel. If that's the case it would seem that you would need to pull the fender, which is extremely easy. That's the method I used even though I *do* have the access panel. If your wiper is slow you'll also want to ensure it is getting the proper voltage at the connector and that the connection isn't corroded.
  10. They look fantastic. I'll be at the front of the line for the '64s. Thanks Bob.
  11. I did both doors two winters ago as my indoor project. In addition to the motor cleaning up as Ed suggested I recommend removing the channels and cleaning them. There is surface oxidation in there along with dust and dirt. If you only put oil in the channels you'll be making a gritty paste. I pulled mine out and cleaned them on the bench with a Dremmel tool. When I put them back in they were like new.
