  1. I don't have a problem with his policy. His business, his choice. It's good rudeness and righteous indignation. I felt it was no way to treat customers and I would hope others would post similar experiences with vendors.
  2. I'm really not looking for someone to "join my team" as you say. I'm looking for candid feedback on others dealings with him and his business (sounds like a one man show, but I'm not sure). I'm trying to give him the benefit of the doubt here, maybe he did have a bad week. Similarly, if hope others would post up about it if they have had bad interactions with someone. I'm not sure why it's paranoid and mistrusting to ask about a guarantee and to not like sending a personal check. I've asked several other vendors and all replied respectfully. He could have simply r
  3. As a follow up to my other recent thread. I'm in need of A WORKING temperature gauge or a repair service that isn't $3-400! Also looking for a correct choke knob (brown marbled color) All for a 36 P2 deluxe. Please let me know if you have any leads.
  4. Anyone purchase from Ed at antiquemopar.com (obsolete mopar parts). I've just had a rough run in with him and just curious of others experience. It's got me frustrated because he had two hard to find parts at good prices, but I found him to be a rude and condescending cantankerous man that didn't seem too interested in having a customer. Perhaps I'm overly paranoid and mistrusting but I didn't think it would be insulting to ask for a guarantee of some kind and to prefer PayPal to a personal check when no such guarantee is given. Too much risk. He got offended and the discussi
  5. Does anyone have a good recommendation for a repair service that won't break the bank? The temperature Guage on our p2 is not working. I got a good deal on a Guage set from eBay, that one turns or to be broken as well. So I just need to get it repaired. Any recommendations?
  6. This may sound complicated, but there is a solution. I could not find the column grommet for my 36 either. I ended up using 3d software to create it digitally, then printed it with 3d printer. Using that plastic model I mold a silicon mold and then was able to cast a new part to fit. I going someone with a 3d printed that also helped with the software, so that's a big part of it. But it is doable.
  7. Here's a pic of my P2 and a few others. I don't notice any intention. I'm not near it to go look, can't say I've ever noticed one though. Although my grill is pretty beat up.

    P2 knobs

    They do have a stainless ring around them. You can see in this picture, my chipotle knob is a white color while the rest are marbled. Not the greatest pic, but you get the idea.

    P2 knobs

    Bit of a pity party here, I recently found an ad for a batch of P2 knobs in the marbled brown color that I need. After exchanging a few emails the gentlemen informed me that someone else has sent him a check. So I missed out 😭. Due to my usually cautious nature, I really wanted pics first to be sure we were on the same page. He had to get someone to help with that and in that time someone else bought them sight unseen. Not the buyers fault at all, purely mine, but I'm kicking myself over this one as you NEVER see the marbled knobs come up! So if you're the individual that bo
  10. Yup, as mentioned you have to hammer it into the channel over the fabric. You should have wood spars covered with chicken wire as a frame. I do not recall where we got the rubber from, but I do recall that NONE of the suppliers matched the original exactly. The repros work fine though. It was a pain to install though. Took us better part of the weekend and I don't think I could pick up a pencil for a week! Hammer trick worked on in a few areas, but we had to work it in by have a little at a time. I also don't recall where we got the fabric, dad picked it up for me because he got a deal.
  11. I may have to check with them as well. Any experience with them yet? I'm still looking for some knobs and whatnot for the interior, and of course the elusive gas pedal!
  12. mold star 30 for the mold and I ended up with reoflex 60 for the final product.
  13. Here is the column seal process. Smooth-On is the product. https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink/topic?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.garagejournal.com%2Fforum%2Fshowthread.php%3Ft%3D429312&share_tid=429312&share_fid=20318&share_type=t&link_source=app Replacing obsolete parts
  14. I'll double check when I get home. I can't remember right now. I do remember I had to add brown and white pigment for the color and the plastic model needed to be scuffed up a bit, then sealed with clear. If you don't scuff it the river will come out shiny and if you don't seal the model the rubber won't cure (some interaction with the primer I used on the model and the liquid rubber). I definitely need a new firewall pad and kick panels.
  15. I had to cast that as well. Let me know if you go that route. I made a mold with a 3d printer and poured the rubber. I don't see a way to do the pedal though.
