  1. I have done all of the lines on a 55 with the body on. The only one that is nearly impossible is the front brake line to the passengers side. (Not sure if I did that one with the engine in). All of the brake lines at the junction block should be done with the engine out. The long fuel line from the tank to the junctions n block is really difficult, and I have the advantage of a two post lift. How I initially came across Inline was I ordered fuel lines from CARs and it came in an Inline box. Decided to cut out th middle man next time.
  2. Roy, I have used Inline Tube on numerous occasions and have always been happy with fit and quality.
  3. Daniel, you need to stay away from white doorways and golden retrievers until YOU are cleaned up
  4. Not neglect or anything else. It's just old and needs to be rebuilt and sent off to be rebuilt.
  5. Oh, and I wouldn't call it gouging customers. It's only gouging when it isn't fair. Custom cars cost a lot, and you pay accordingly.
  6. I've seen worse. It can be made better, though. Though even with a body manual, it is mostly trial and error.
  7. Something is definitely wrong in that last picture.
  8. I personally never had the problem until Lamar asked me to try and post. I think Matt W may be on to something. Maybe not the only problem, but it can't help. Wait... what? That's right, my earlier answer is still here as if I can only make one post per thread. Sidebar: Did anybody else notice that Senior 55 Century with the chrome slider bezels? (Post 70, pic 4)

  10. Run the drill in reverse when checking. It is a counterclockwise gear.
  11. Go to www.rockauto.com right now!!! I just entered all the info for a 1955 Century hardtop in black Daytona for $265.
  12. I have never dealt with them, but almost all sewn carpets you buy from any vendor comes in an ACC (Auto Custom Carpets) box. They have the proper Daytona weave in many colors. Check around for the best price. I actually bought a set for a 55 Special on rockauto for under $400 once a few years ago. https://www.accmats.com/
  13. Best post on the whole internet. Thank YOU Mud for your continuing inspiration and friendship.
  14. Rob, I got your email. I can't help with a pic, cuz I think the 55 electric seat is different. I probably can help with the defroster switch. Will check after Xmas.
  15. Steve, I don't think there is a clip that holds it in. It should just be a press fit. Just clean it with carb cleaner and don't put any lube in when you reinstall the switch.
  16. Joel, My grandfather ran a sawmill his whole life in Gerard's Fort, Pa. I remember going to his old house and marveling in his floor choices. He had different wood in every room. Cherry, walnut and oak for sure. Love the garage, buddy.
  17. I don't have enough experience on this alteration, VB. I will help if ya need it, but I'd just be peein' in the wind.
