  1. Whadup @Specalist John. The seat is still available. Is he local? Have your buddy text or call me. Thank you John.
  2. @John Dino, I tried my best to get those hinges off through bolt removal, but I wasn't making any progress at all. So, I took a cutting wheel and cut the hinges off the door instead. The hinges were not touched or damaged in any way. Here are a couple of photos.I hope this will suffice. Let me know.
  3. We can do paypal. I should be able to start removing those hinges today. But let's hold off on payment until I get them off for you.
  4. I can build a crate for the rear window if anyone needs it. I already built one for this front windshield that is being sold, shown here. The other stuff you see in this crate are other items the buyer requested.
  5. This car was sold earlier this month. A fancy truck with the name, F.C. Kerbeck, picked the car up. My guess...it was purchased to be resold at a later time.
  6. Not a problem. However, I am going on vacation tomorrow and won't be able to get to this until I get back late next week. I hope this won't be a problem.
  7. Funny you would recommend this. I bought this exact tool for this reason with no luck. I might take a cutting wheel and grind around it to get it off the door. I will sell the whole rear set for 20. But if I have to break up the set, it will be 15 for one side.
  8. @John Dino, I do have the set of rear door hinges. The only reason why I didn't put them up for sale is because I could not get them off. However, I am willing to try again for you. It will be a little while before I can get to it because I will be on vacation in a couple days. I will get back to you when I am back. Thank you.
  9. More than one way to skin a cat! I love it.
  10. Yes Sir. How are you @GrandpaJerry? The gauge will work on your car. Send me a PM and we will set it up. Thank you.
  11. No Sir. The gauge that I am selling only fits Supers and Roadmasters. On the parts car, the original temp gauge was broken. So, a previous owner took the gauge (that I am selling) and installed in place of where the clock goes. That's how I wound up with this thing.
  12. Sold the set of rear ventilator window assemblies.
  13. Removing the steering column here, as shown.Loosen the clamp bolt shown here.Go back inside the car and remove the screws that holds down the steering column rubber seal at the firewall. Next, simultaneously pull back on the steering column while firmly wiggling it out of the socket. Take your time. Once you pull it off the socket, turn the steering column counterclockwise until the shifting arm clears the firewall opening.Now, you can pull it out. You will also remove 2 different steering column seals with the steering column itself. Showing the site of removal.Showing the steering column after removal.Overall, this was an easy task. Onto the power steering gear, as shown.Remove the pitman arm nut shown here.A pitman arm removal tool is necessary for this.My tool wouldn't fit, so I had to hammer the tool into place until centered. Tighten the tool until pitman arm pops or slides off the spline.Now, remove the 4 bolts shown here.These bolts hold down 2 pairs of clamps on the opposite side. While removing the 4th bolt, hold the power steering gear in place so that it doesn't fall off of the frame to prevent injury and/or damage. Once both clamps and bolts have been removed, pick up the power steering gear off the frame. Showing the site after removal.Showing the power steering gear after removal.Overall, this was an easy task. Just take note that this part has a decent amount of weight on it to be prepared.
  14. This time, I removed the steering wheel as shown.I took the center nut and screwed it back down about 2 or 3 threads.I then used a steering wheel puller in conjunction with a socket as shown to avoid damaging the grounding button for the horn.I sprayed a little WD-40 into the splines to help. Slowly tighten the puller. The steering wheel will either slide off or snap off. Showing the site after removal.Showing the steering wheel after removal.Overall, this was an easy task. Next, I removed the item shown here. I don't know the proper name of it. So, I will just call it the steering column seal and firewall vent assembly.Remove 3 nuts along the curved brace below the steering column penetration.Remove the curved brace. You will then remove the 2 screws shown here on either side of the column.You can now carefully pry the seal and vent off of the firewall until separated.Showing the site after removal.Showing the vent and seal assembly after remova.Overall, this was an easy task.
  15. Now that I am done with the parts car, it's back to the business with my main car. Next order of business was removing the hood springs shown here.First thing you need to do is to secure the hood as shown. I used a 2x4 to hold it open. I don't have any special tools to remove these springs. I just had to be resourceful with what I had. Both my Daddy and Grandaddy both would say, "More than one way to skin a cat". I used a light weight chain, a pole from my old carport and a double sided locking chain loop. Here's a picture of how I set it up.Lock the chain loop at bottom of spring. Make a loop out of the chain and lock it to bottom end of chain loop. Stick something rigid through the chain loop and rest one end of it under the frame to create a lever. Rest the other end of the lever against the tire for stability. Use your body weight and gently push down on the lever with your foot.Once the spring's hook clears the body of the car, slowly lift your foot back up and your spring should be free. Repeat these steps on other side. Here's a shot of the site after removal.A shot of the hood springs after removal.Overall, this was an easy task. Next, I removed the hood as shown.The hood is pretty heavy and I was removing it by myself. So, I placed a couple of 2x4's under the hood and rested them on the body and the front end of the frame, creating a slope. Keep in mind that the 2x4 holding the hood up is still in place.Next, remove the 3 bolts shown here (both sides).Once removed, you can set the ends of the hood on the sloped 2x4's as shown.You can now remove the 2x4 that was holding the hood open and lay the hood down on the sloping 2x4's as shown.You can now gently slide the hood down the set of 2x4's. You will probably need to keep shifting the hood hinges forward to clear obstructions.Once the hood is close to the ground, stand the hood up on the 2x4's and walk it down the rest of the way until the hood clears the 2x4's. Hood is removed. Showing the site after removal.Showing the hood after removal.Overall, this was an easy task.
  16. More pictures of Front Seat Door Sill Plates (price at end of previous post)
  17. I am very happy (and relieved) to say that I am finally done with the parts car. All parts that were kept are boxed and stored while all other parts will be sold for cheap! If anyone is interested in some parts, I created a thread in the Buick - buy and sell forum. Just click here.
  18. Most, if not all of these parts can also possibly fit years 54 and 56 Buick Sedans. Check for compatibility. Please also note that I don't plan on keeping these parts for long if they do not sell. Parts are priced very cheaply for this reason.

  19. A Father's Day gift from my Wife. The clock was made to look similar to a dash clock on a 55 Buick! Happy Father's Day to all.
  20. I don't know, but it's growing on me. The body seems like it belongs there with the garage in the background. Makes it look like a car shop from a tv show. If the kids were out of the house, I'd probably keep it.
  21. @MrEarl, got a small trick for that issue when posting many photos...when you get to the point where get that message "Max total size 9.77", just click "OK" and then scroll all the way back up to the top of the forum your in and click the button to back out of that forum. Once out, go right back in to the forum you left your uploaded photos in (they will still be there). You can now continue to upload more photos. You can do this as many times as you need until you upload all the pictures you want. Didn't mean to hijack this thread but I know you have been upset with this for a while.
  22. Bought this power brake set through facebook.I have been buying Buick parts off and on for the last 5 years and I must say, this one was a bad experience. There was no care taken in boxing up the parts. I was missing a couple of parts and one of the parts was damaged. Thank God I didn't pay much. Power braking parts, compliments of facebook.
