  1. I am not sure, but if you could send me photo of your body tag I could look into it, but maybe the column and lower dash are correct original paint on your car, and are this silver-gray that I did find for 1958 Buick, silver-gray Ditzler PPG # 31722, it also shows "Interior" Close to PPG # 21260 is what you need. Just as lancemb stated steering column and lower dash should be the same color, that could be why "silver mist" does not match your steering column and lower dash, as they both should match in color. You can view these PPG codes on: www.paintref.com just google 1958 Buick inter

  7. I purchased a 1958 Buick service manual on e-bay and had trouble with the seller, he did get it resolved, but to try to make me happy he gave me a very nice condition "Dynaflow Doctor" service manual like the picture shows.
  8. I love that #12 Bobby Allison stock car Miller paint scheme on that Buick.
  9. I also have the porter cable and really like it.
  10. In response to video of "1952 Roadmaster transmission removal", look at this rear end screw jack, is a Kent-Moore tool, to avoid the removal of the complete rear end with torque tube. Bob
  11. Here is a better picture, looks so good I don't want to get oil or grease on it when I remove my next transmission on a torque tube Buick. Bob
  12. I cleaned and painted my newly acquired rear end axle jack. It measures 26" when screwed all the way in, extends to 49" and weighs 25 lbs, and is ratcheting in the center where it is labeled Simplex, it is a Kent-Moore # J6741 KMO numbers/letters both on the base where it attaches to rear end.
  13. I am looking for a member who has a Dynaflow transmission holding fixture brackets that I could rent or borrow to make copies of the 2 brackets # J7009-6, I would pay for the shipping from you and back to you, please PM, or E-mail me at: bobs1958@att.net Thanks Bob
