  1. Maybe your thermostat is intermittently sticking & not allowing coolant to circulate then it finds a way out somewhere??
  2. Doug, thank u so much for your generous offer. But I will have to pass. Hopefully someone else can benefit
  3. I’m interested. I don’t have carpet 😬. Rolling Rat Rod like. 😆 Edit: I’m in SoCal. How do I estimate shipping? I sent u a PM
  4. My upholstery guy said not to bother with the 63/64 foam when I asked if we could mod them. Like Bob said, my guy will be “cooking” up some foam for me too. Try asking a couple of other upholsterers in your area.
  5. I think @buickboneheadwas making them at one point. He also made the bitchen all steel horn bars. His metal & chrome guy stopped producing quality products. He talked about looking for other guys to work with. Hit him up. Maybe he’s found new guys u can also try @abandg. He’s got tons of parts
  6. Use the search function. I had to fix my glovebox door too & I did a little writeup. Maybe there something in there that’ll help u
  7. Yes. Felt on both halves. Like your picture #1 & on the back half which the air duct hose attaches to. Then the chrome ball will be sandwiched between the felt on both halves. Set the tightness by pushing the two halves together against the chrome ball & tighten the set screw
  8. Start a new thread. U might have better luck with an answer to your question
  9. u are probably right. I didn’t ask. I only assumed. U know what assuming does 😆
  10. Like the song says “I Can See Clearly Now…” 😆 My 57 year old glass was in horrible shape. I’ve got 16k miles on my car since I got her back on the road & I always had trouble seeing thru the windshield (mainly when driving at night). I found a auto glass shop who even had the original replacement green clips. They used 5/16 foam & silicone (not butyl rubber like I did when I put my old glass in 3 years ago). The glass has a green tint & dark tint across the top. It does not have the original marking on it but it does have a DOT number. I’m just glad “I can see
  11. Phil Collins said it best: There's too many men, too many peopleMaking too many problemsAnd there's not much love to go aroundCan't you see this is the land of confusion? Just trying to help. Don’t shoot the messenger. I’m no mechanic. I was just relaying info that was given to me 😬
  12. I had to dig thru my build thread to find info that might help u. I thing guys here on the forum told me was that u will not hear the KD solenoid due to the trans fluid muffling it. I think what the previous replies to your Q on this thread about the wiring was simply to ensure u had good contacts. As u won’t be able to hear the “click” with the fluid in place. Good contacts would ensure a test drive would be successful. If u are heading the solenoid “click” after u drained the fluid I think that tells u it is in fact working. I have now gone in a different direction (EF
  13. Clark’s…hands down. Their prices have gone up. But I don’t care. In these crazy times, what prices haven’t gone up? Clarks makes all their covers in-house. I have seen multiple kits that friends have bought from Clark’s. Top notch, quality stuff. I am currently putting together a parts list for my 65. I will probably order all things interior at the same time from Clark’s just to have it all match. I will have to do new foam. U can see why in the pix on my build thread. Unfortunately, for us 65 guys, Clark’s does not have new foam for our Deluxe interior 🤷🏻‍♂️. I
  14. lots of options out there I've been using a combination of blacks as to break things up a bit (a great tip from guys here). But some guys like things ALL the same black. Not me. I used Rustoleum 7777 (this stuff is awesome but takes forever to dry), the KBS gloss (which was labeled satin…not) & Dupli-color's semi-gloss 1635 this stuff dries super fast & u can keep the projects moving lol U can use any combination but its def a nice detail instead of EVERYTHING being the same color IMO. The Dupli-color 1635 has been my go to lately. I even sprayed my pa
