  1. If "C pillar" refers to the cross-section of the 4-post leg sections, then my 4-post Direct Lift falls into that category. All I can say is that I had my lift installed in 2018 and I marked the floor where each leg stood. When I look at the floor today I can verify that nothing has moved. My lift is sitting on a level, 5" fiber-reinforced concrete floor.
  2. I have gone to the local auto finisher supply and bought a pint of paint they mix to the factory color. For additional charge they can put that into aerosol spray cans for you. The ones I have used all worked well and typically have a nice fan-spray nozzle.
  3. Are you talking about the bottom slide lever? I think that one is cable controlled. Check around the heater box under the dash and on the firewall. I don't know without looking at the shop manual where the far end of the cable attaches. Does the lever feel like it is doing anything (i.e., is there some resistance)?
  4. I'd be leery of putting anything like a sealant over a fresh paint job. I'd probably wait 3 to 6 months before doing anything.
  5. About 6 tanks for me courtesy of the Emerald Ash Borer...
  6. I don't think you'd see any visible difference aside from the color of the paint on the webbing. Since the road wheels were only offered on the Wildcat in '64, you'd probably want to use the Wildcat center caps, rather than the '65's Riviera cap.
  7. I have the same feeling about my '67. Powerful and comfortable highway cruiser.
  8. Sticky (i.e., dirty) regulator contact? Worn generator brushes/sticky brush holder? I'd probably start by by carefully running a contact file through the regulator contacts once or twice, followed by a piece of paper or thin cardboard soaked with contact cleaner. If it persists I'd try to get a look at the generator brushes, maybe with a dental mirror & flashlight; otherwise remove and inspect.
  9. If this was the first drive after sitting for a prolonged period, maybe a sticky valve or two? Did you hear any unusual 'ticking' while it was misbehaving? I'd add some Rislone and drive another 100 miles before panicking...
  10. That's probably what I'd wind-up doing as well. If there's a shop who can fix it, I'd do it now rather than waiting until I need it later. The local repair option may be unavailable or certainly more expensive later. Besides, given that your screen name begins with "TA", do you really think this will be your last one...
  11. For the record, if I bought this car it would be to preserve it as-is. My 'thought experiment' was simply acknowledging how if the appearance was left alone (with stock wheels) this could be the ultimate 'sleeper'. And to take the ruse one step further, one could build a 496 torque monster and disguise it to appear as a stock 396...
