  1. as you live in Blighty wouldn't it be better to give your carpet a really good clean if thats one of the issues apart from the fit ? by the way my carpet is original and is a poor fit also so you would be taking a gamble ordering a new one and taking a chance of a better fit .
  2. very professional and detailed looking work . im jealous
  3. Magic Marouke was the pedigree name for my yellow lab "Sam" . i left him in the UK when i emigrated to the states back in 2007 . had him 13 years and was an awesome companion . hated leaving him but i couldn't take him with me . he still lived with my ex when i left so he was very well cared for . he passed away back in 2010 and i still miss him terribly every day .
  4. car show in Weatherford Oklahoma . met another guy with a 72 Electra . afterwards went to an old gas station on route 66 for some pics .
  5. i'm needing this part for my 72 Electra . its the vacuum regulator valve assembly . its located at the front top of the transmission and has something to do with working the air leveling ride option . if anyone parting out a car and has one please let me know . thanks Simon
  6. very nice . did you get to chat to the guy ?
  7. howdy from Oklahoma . i had big classic cars and american pick ups when i lived in the UK . it was certainly a challenge driving on the narrow roads and finding and fitting in to a parking space . paying a fortune for petrol was my favorite part though .
  8. we use them at work to store irrigation supplies . yea they can get really warm in the summer . think these have vents in the corners though . there's all sorts of things you can do with containers theses days . there's a Netflix show about people making homes out of them
  9. living in SW Oklahoma we also get hit hard in storm season . I monitor the weather each day before I decide to take my Buick work or use the beater truck . would like to get a storage container sometime . its probably the best protection you can have v
  10. after my truck had a wire under the hood chewed up by a mouse I looked around for ways to keep them away from the vehicles . someone suggested mothballs . I bought two bags and placed them all around the engine bay . two days later I noticed mice had take some of the mothballs from my engine bay and transferred them to my wifes car parked next to my truck and made a cozy nest out of them . so much for moth balls I guess .
  11. Blair Oklahoma you'll have to google the one on the truck to find out .
  12. I believe that people said the autometer gauges were really nice quality so went with theses . I went through Summit as they were quite a bit cheaper and are good service and after sales . the tech guys at autometer were really helpful also when I had a problem setting my tach up . I have a few pics i'll post but it was all pretty straight forward . I'm no mechanic so if I can do it anyone here shouldn't have a problem .
  13. thanks mate . yea their tech guys are really helpful when I had a problem . I like how they are made in USA as well . I wanted a tach that would blend in with the rest of the gauges so yes this style and size was just right
  14. been on on going project the last few weeks waiting on the weather and time of course time . fed up with just having idiot lights not really knowing what's going on up there . the set of 4 cost just under $300 from Summit . here's the pics
  15. absolutely itching to get out . had planned to take it work today but woke up to really thick fog
  16. regarding the quick release clamp you have on your positive battery cable . I had a set of those a few years ago and they didn't make that good of a contact . very convenient though . I swapped them for some regular factory clamps and was fine after that . maybe I had poor quality ones back then but if you have problems I'd look at the clamps first .
  17. iv'e heard about this show and may try to go but I seriously doubt i'll make it . I work in irrigation and it will be our busy season here . its all I can do to get a Saturday morning off for a local show . I'll look in to the club to see what its about though .
  18. that was a good purchase be the sound of it . a lot better than some of the meetings and dealings im sure we've all had when viewing and buying cars . I once traveled 7 hours to Arkansas to look at a 70 Nova I ended up buying . guy assured me it was a driver and ran good . got there and was obviously it hadn't been touched let alone ran in 6 months , some people . im still impressed that you drove it all that way just after buying it .
  19. awesome thread and like the detail to your work . wish I had the time and experience to do a whole car like you're doing . very impressive and keep the updates coming
  20. good read john and very informative . shame the pics on the car shop and rear spring swap didn't show on the thread , would like to have seen them .
