  1. With that type of drama it must be General Hospital!
  2. Not even sure that is a good idea. Not unless I can still get gasoline and drive the Super.
  3. Not being in the construction trade, but having helped several work on various structures, I can see you have put a lot of thought into what to do and how you wanted it done. It wasn't my intent to cause you further heartache. Looking forward to the pics of how it all turns out. It is already Buickful and I'm anxious to see the finished product.
  4. to each his/her own. Looks like a fun driver. I always wonder what hot rodders do about the wood framing in a body like this? Just ignore it, repair it, or replace with metal? How about starting a thread about your work in the modified section here?
  5. This is something that is very rare and I doubt there will be anything on video. But your own short video gives some clues. To me it looks like the original weld is a 1/4 inch away from the end of the tube. It looks like the tube fits inside the flange attached to the trans and then was welded. To test this theory I would recommend cleaning the area as much as possible to ensure the weld really is back from the edge of the tube and if it is i would consider loosening the flange bolts and see if the flange slips over the end of the tube while the rear axle assembly is still in
  6. It will be beautiful. Hope you can get that wood clean!
  7. I don't question how beautiful that garage will be with those pine boards but how fire resistant are they? Is it a good idea to use them in a working garage?
  8. Thanks for bringing this thread back to the top @John Donlan. I rember thinking I should reply to this. Still haven't recorded my list however. Soon...soon.
  9. Might be worth importing. What is the Chinese symbol for 60 mph?
  10. I am not an expert but I will suggest trying a rug cleaner product with a bristle brush. Then asorb the cleaner with microfibre towels. Also, if there is any rug retailers in your area you might inquire if they can recommend a professional cleaner. I once took a heavily soiled car for treatment and $60.00 later it was nearly new inside.
  11. @old-tank Is that you and Maryann?
  12. Had the same reaction Neil. Looks odd at the least and doesn't seem to make sense.
  13. Ah, 66. I remember it well!!!! Obviously I got my time line backwards.. A belated Happy Birthday then Dave. !
  14. @Mudbone Happy Birthday Buick Friend! And Happy Birthday to be for Dave @retirednow
  15. Oh man ... this is soooo tempting!
  16. Unless the description specifies that, then I just think it would be incorrect to assume that's what you'll get. But there are lots of wrenches made today so finding another to address that situation should not be difficult. The same ones, which I had bought, all work good is about all I can definitely say.
  17. I was wondering who the old guy , the one she was dragging up the hill to the BSSG ,was?
  18. In my opinion, one should consider this effort in light of how you use the car. If you drive it a lot then given the top grill bar's location , it is not reasonable to consider this a "once done-forever" task. And as such it is reasonable to expect that paint in this area will be subject to wear and tear. Thus it seems it may not be worth a ton of effort to worry about the level of gloss to the top coats of paint. GM always made use of satin black where trim is concerned. It shows less irregularities than high gloss when dry. I would suggest any satin black paint is acceptable.
  19. No matter who is doing the pumping I try to close the WC valve as the pedal is being applied.
  20. heater hose route diagrams Look 3 posts down into this thread. Does that help?
