  1. I have 600/16 Oldsmobile rims and tires for sale. I don’t think they have been repainted. I used them on my Studebaker while I restored it. $650.00 obo. I live by Kansas City.
  2. He’s not going to respond. He is full of excuses, Bob!! He said one of his employees stole money from him. Maybe karma came back to haunt him!!! I am going tomorrow morning to pick up the 36. I will post pictures of what true craftsmanship looks like from my Upoulstry gentlemen. He had to start over completely with all new material. D
  3. Craig The vendor did supply the strip you are speaking of. But my Upoulstry guy said something is wrong with it. He has made a new one and is installing it this weekend. Like I said before, the vendor supplied material wasn’t sewn correctly and is too small. Had to purchase new material and start over. Thanks D
  4. Thanks Bill. Just came back from checking on the interior work . Getting closer to being done. Dennis
  5. Thanks Chris. Lots of time and $$. But my wife and I love it. Bring it home next Wednesday. Can’t wait. D
  6. Well studemax. I am not a chicken just so you know!!! I don’t want to mention any names. I pulled down what I wrote yesterday. I prepaid for the interior to a vendor who advertises on the Studebaker Vendor page and in both Studebaker publications. Took 14 months to receive anything not the 6 months as advertised. Nothing that he or his employees made fit. The vendor says that his bank account is frozen and can’t refund my money! I have used other vendors listed and have not had any problems. Not a puzzle Studemax!! Just want people to know that some vendors can’t be trusted in my opinion.
  7. I had the generator checked out again last week and it works correctly. It has a cut out. They told me that I need to ground the engine to the body. They said that I have a ground problem . Thanks
  8. Thanks. It is a1936 Studebaker Dictator 3ACoupe. It has a cutout on the generator. To polarize the generator I take a wire, connect one end to the generator and touch the other end to the negative side of the battery? Correct? Yes positive ground. It looks like the number on the generator is s-a4064mgb. Thanks D

  10. I need some advice please. I have a new battery and have had my generator checked out. When I have the car running the amp gauge show negative charging. When I put the amp tester on it shows crazy readings on both the battery and generator. Then when I shut the car off the battery doesn’t have enough power to restart the car. I should be able to figure it out but I can’t. Can someone please let me know what I am doing wrong. As usual thanks for all help! Dennis
  11. Thanks for the information on the floor mats vs carpet. What kind of material was used in the trunk? I am going to put carpet in my 36 coupe as I already have it. Just waiting on the rest of my interior to be completed. Does someone make a trunk mat or something? Thanks Dennis
  12. Picture of the rubber boot I put over the metal Transmisson cover. Does it go over the carpet?
  13. I have a question, Studerex. When I got the 36 Coupe the floor was gone except for very rough plywood. Does the rubber shifter boot go over the carpet? Thanks for your help and input. Hope this question is not silly. This is my first Studebaker restoration. My other restoration is our 1953 GMC Hydra-Matic. Thanks Dennis
  14. Just a follow up picture of the wood floor boards finally installed. (Terry Frye has been a great help.) Finishing the dash and then onto the doors to install the window channel and cat whiskers. Waiting on the rest of my interior to come from Southeast Studebaker. Will post more pictures of the dash/heater and glove box.
