  1. Think you're in luck. Straight with pitting. Please PM me if you'd like to work out a deal!
  2. I might have the grill bar extension. I'll check and get back in touch.
  3. Hi Eric, I hope all is well with you. Thanks for your good feedback. I've been searching high and low for one of these for quite a while now. I've come to the conclusion that NOS is pretty unlikely since they've all probably been used up since being on the right side the car makes it prone to rubbing up against curbs. Probably a lot of these got damaged over the years. Like you said, may need to go to a trim restorer. I'll keep my eyes on Craigslist in the mean time. Best, Jeff
  4. Hello, I am in need of a gravel shield (right side) for a 1951 Buick Roadmaster (2dr hardtop or convertible). This is part number: 1343356 Attached are some photos with measurements for reference. Thanks in advance, Jeff
  5. She looks right at home! Great color scheme. Enjoy
  6. Looks like you can pick one up from Cars: http://www.oldbuickparts.com/catalog/pdf/cat360/36004.pdf see pages 53 & 54 Best, Jeff
  7. These are great photos. Thanks for sharing!

  10. I enjoy seeing pics of your '51. The most amazing color scheme; nice work!
  11. Hello, Looking for a 1950 or 1951 Battery Hold Down Strap with Heat Shield. This is Buick Group 2.335 and Part # 1338746. Shown in this screenshot from the Buick Parts book as item E. Thanks, Jeff
  12. I had a feeling... Thanks for confirming.
  13. Hi John, I know this thread is just a few years old , but thought it would be worth a shot to see if you still have the 1950-52 GM "Guide" taillamp assemblies? Thanks, Jeff
  14. Thinking about re-silvering my rear view mirror too. I look forward to seeing your's when complete.
  15. Hi Eric. Hope your project is going well. Sorry I didn't respond about the windows on my project. I am keeping the hydraulic setup. Had the solenoid valve and firewall pump rebuilt by Hydro-e-lectric (http://www.hydroe.com/). They did a fantastic job. Look forward to your next update. Jeff
  16. Good points. Another observation, above the already high purchase price, the new owner is putting additional money into the car through this restoration. Could possibly be added value since it's a Wayne Carini restoration, but hard to say since the celebrity value is already built into the car. Hefty investment indeed.
  17. I came across this recent article about that the restoration of 1949 Roadmaster convertible from Rainmain that you may find interesting: http://dennishouse.tv/2014/11/19/iconic-ragtop-undergoing-restoration/ Best, Jeff
  18. Hi Pete, I corresponded with Ray (located in Seneca, NY) via email and telephone. He emailed me the photos & Harrison part #. I have my eye on another radiator, that is local to me, in better shape. As a result, I decided to pass on Ray's radiator; however I told him that I would post it on the Buy/sell forum to help out with his sale.
  19. Not mine. Harrison # 3123757 These radiators are hard to come by so I thought I would post this from Craiglist (http://buffalo.craigslist.org/pts/4832192761.html) The sellers name is Ray. Can be reached at: 716-783-1572
  20. Here is a '48 you could check on. Not sure if it's a convertible lid, though....
