  1. 64rivvy, I just did these in my 65 last winter. I’m positive mine were like your first pic. Also positive they were original. To make it a little easier, I used a black felt with an adhesive backing. Works great, my vent “balls” had no grooves that I remember. Not sure what Ed means unless the earlier ones are different than the 65. Good luck, it’s nice when they aren’t loose anymore 👍 Brian
  2. The OPG mats are from Cars. I have a set and cars is molded in the bottom. They are well made, nice and heavy. I heard the ones from legendary were for the A body/skylark, and somewhat smaller. My .02
  3. Glad to be done with these,but happy with the results.
  4. Winter rocker molding restoration project. Cool to see the original color under the black. Strip, straighten, sand, polish, prime paint..
  5. Oh , there she is...😎Chris, is that pic from Columbus when I first got it? 2010? Thanks for taking good care of it👍 Brian
  6. 937 south west Ohio
  7. Those go to your door jamb switch. The switch’s notoriously go bad. Someone probably disconnected them. Look up Wolfgang if you need the switches rebuilt.
  8. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year. Unfortunately, I couldn’t upload a video with the audio ✨🎄✨
  9. Charley, saw your car at the MCACN in ‘18. It’s incredible, congrats on the 10k, keep rolling 👍
  10. I’ve used evapo rust, and agree. It’s a great product 👍
  11. I have to say I love having one in my 65. I use it all the time, and keeps you from messing with the pricey, fragile, rare trunk lock cover emblem. As Gene stated above, there is a vacuum canister mounted low on the right side of the firewall.
  12. Ed, I had a 64 with reverb ad it was exactly as the picture you posted also. From everything I’ve found, the center switch/ space under the dash was for the rear defroster and read accessory
  13. Beautiful night tonight. Stopped by Hawthorn Hill for a photo. This was Orville Wright’s home from 1914 until his death in 1948. Oakwood (Dayton) Ohio.
  14. Thanks, Yes, accessory from Buick. They are pretty neat.
  15. We’ve got 2000 this year. We did 600 one week in September, so fun. Odometer rolled past 50k that week. Got to drive em! The previous owner put 6k on it from 1981-2019 😳
  16. Service manual will be your best friend here. There are some good diagrams in there.
  17. Shots from the weekend and the new tach.

    Shout out!!

    Couldn’t agree more. Mine work great too. Quality and fast turnaround 👍
  19. Hey Dave, personally i’d have your original core recored by an old school local radiator shop. Would be better than anything you could buy new and would fit correctly in my opinion. I’ve worked on a lot of cars too, and I agree, definitely the most difficult car I’ve torn into. I had the entire interior out of mine over the winter, I have no idea how they assembled these on the line. Totally worth it though. Great cars. There is a great article on the ROA website about heatercore replacement from inside and outside the firewall. Check it out and join if you haven’t already. Lots of great , helpful folks around here. Good luck with your project and post updates. Brian
  20. Stock wire caps with 2” dropped springs. I also want a couple sets to change things up from time to time.
  21. Beautiful, thanks for sharing. Welcome
  22. Hey Ed, yeah I bought the one tom t had. I will send my original to Dewey at some point. I was just trying to get it back on the road ASAP. Should have it back together this weekend. Thanks.
