  4. To all you St. Louis area readers - At Riverport/UMB Bank Pavilion, there is going to be a LARGE swap meet starting at 6am on Sunday morning April 18th. It's supposed to be one of the biggest in St. Louis every year. I'll be there!! Let's see...2 way power seat motor and fan shroud for a 62 Electra....Trunk lip moulding for me ....here's to hoping!
  5. I am looking for the stainless steel trunk lip moulding and the pieces that continue on to the quarter extensions. The actualy quarter extensions would be nice too, as I wouldn't have to modify my current ones. The quarter extensions are exclusive to 2-door hardtops and convertibles only, but the loulding can be found on any of them!!! Pleeez help.. Thanks
  6. fan shroud? 2 way power seat motor?? Thanks!!
  7. Yeah, I've posted this other places too, but you'll just have to live with it This is the biggest annual show in St. Louis every year, and this year was no exception. Over 20 Buicks (17 club members) showed up to sport the tri-shield and strut their stuff. Our very own Carl Schmiehausen took FIRST PLACE out of 600 cars with his 1929 Buick that he has been restoring since 1976. Yes, I said 1976.....it's been a long time....this was its first showing. Paul Meyer was there with his 1942 Limited Pickup - Mimi Paul dressed up as Harley Earl...you may be able to see him in this next picture
  8. Tell Joe the Buick Doctor to find me some trunk trim too!! Although I think I have asked him a couple times already Oh yeah, pics!!!!!
  9. man that hurts.... I feel really bad for them.
  10. This may seem like a ridiculous question, but have you checked the parking brake or the cable? It could be a little on the tight side.
  11. Both are the same, just for different sides of the carb. To adjust them properly, you need a vacuum guage...you can buy one at the parts store - a MUST-HAVE tool for every one of us. Start by turning them all the way in until they barely seat. Then back them out 2 full turns. This is a good starting point for adjustment. Now, hook up your vac guage to a full manifold vacuum port. You should be reading at least 15 inches on the guage. Turn each screw until you get the highest vacuum reading. Most of the time, it is right at the point where you turn the screws in just enough to make the

I then wrapped the bottom of the bracket with carpet....glued of course. Turned out extremely nice. </div></div> Great Job Adam! It looks much better and more solid than the carpet covered cardboard that GM installed! <
  13. Here is the auction that 71 Centurion just posted: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2469312875 How's the car runnin, Nick??
  14. That sounds good... As a rule of thumb - 10psi for every 1000rpm is acceptable....so you are in the clear.
  15. Wow! Thanks for the replies. Patrick, I would be honored to do an article on my project. Although people will need to keep in mind that this is obviously NOT an original setup. Everything in my trunk is nothing but the compilation of some ideas what have been brewing inside my skull since I've had this car. My main concern was getting some bottom end sound for my stereo, and with a convertible, I am limited in space for a large speaker enclosure. Some people insist that I need two 12" subs, but one is more than enough. QUALITY sound is what I am after, not thumpa thumpa bumps. This did
  16. I'm pretty proud of myself today....I finished the trunk in the convertible and it looks really good. Here are some before and after shots: Before: All pictures can be seen here: There are 33 of them...so be patient! http://www.buickpartsdirectory.com/centurion/trunk_resto.htm
