  1. Barry I've been hospitalized for the past two weeks with kidney failure. Back up now, I've staved off a transplant for a while. I have photos ready, but can't get them to load. I'll try to get some help online and add a reply to this thread. If that won't work, I'll print copies and send them by snail mail. If that won't work, I'll just send you the grille shell and if you like it, pay me, if not no big loss. Give me a few more hours. Joe
  2. Thanks to all replies. I am the seller, buyer is in New Zealand and has no thoughts on shipping. He wants it sent to Carson, California for forwarding. Pay through Pay-Pal. I'm not really worried about payment, but I would hate to lose the grille shell to someone who wont use it or will rip it off and mount it on a rat-rod. I'll check with GH and UPS/FEDEX when I get to town. Thanks again for your help. Joe
  3. I have to ship a 35 Pontiac grille shell from Tennessee to California. What is the best reasonably priced method? I'll check FEDEX and UPS, but am not sure of weight and size requirements.(Getting to a shipping hub is somewhat difficult for me and their hours of operation are erratic here) Any suggestions are welcome. Joe
  4. Barry, I haven't forgotten you. I went by the shop where I have stored my parts, but my pal was closed because of the nasty weather. I'll try again tomorrow and post pics ASAP. Joe
  5. OK Barry, I'll get back with you ASAP. Happy Holidays Joe
  6. I've got an excellent shell, no rust, dents or cracks. I'm not able to get pics until after the holidays (health issues have me tied up), and I've never shipped anything that large, so will have to check FEDEX or UPS. Mine is in much better condition than the E=Bay one, but I don't have any chrome (maybe the side grille surrounds, no inserts or center waterfall). If you can wait a few weeks, I'll get you pics and you can make an offer. Joe
  7. Highlander That's what I need. I sent you an E-mail, but not sure it went out. If I don't hear from you tomorrow, I'll resend and get a PM to you with details. Thanks, Joe
  8. I knew I'd get an answer. Turns out one of my problems was looking for "tack strips" rather than"nail on door clips". Once I did that I got choices. Thanks Jim and trimacar. Highlander160. I await your response with bated breath. (I always wanted to use that phrase) Joe
  9. I'm doing the upholstery on my 35 Pontiac, and I have been unable to find the right tack strips. Mine are kind of a "U" shaped metal strip with tacks attached that pushes onto the edge of the upholstery backing board. I've tried Restoration Specialties, Genco, and several others but can't find what I need. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. From my time on the Forum, I expect Trimacar and several others will know what I'm looking for and can offer a solution. Thank you for your time. Joe
  10. I responded earlier but my reply evidently didn't take. Try applehydraulics.com they offer rebuild services and can get parts as needed. Also, Vauxhall used the Dubonnet system in some of their cars so there might be someone in Oz who has a parts source. A good article on rebuilding the units can be found at www.antiqueautoarchive.com/.../<wbr>kneeactionpdfcompressed.pdf pretty complete article which would help a lot when you tear into your units. Good luck Joe
  11. Joe, I've got a 35 slantback 4 door in East Tennessee. Been fixing stuff for past two years-wood, rusty door bottoms, paint, interior and glass. Just about finished and should be back on the road next month. I've found everything I needed except the gasket between the headlight stand and bucket. Mine fell apart while being dismantled and the mechanic threw them away. I cannot find anyone who knows where to find them. I've offered to have them reproed if I can find a decent one, but no luck. My fix is a foam pad cut to shape. Works, but I know it's ,not right and it drives me nuts. Also Joe
  12. I hardly think we pulled the Ausies butts out of the fire in WWII. Or any other conflict for that matter. ANZACs and other Ausies stood side by side with us and our allies in WWI, WWII and Viet Nam. I thought they were damn good soldiers, every bit our equal. And they REALLY know how to drink beer! Joe
  13. Gary: Thanks for the help, but no go. It seems no one reproduces the part that I need. I'm looking for a used or partial part that I can use as a mold to reproduce what I need. Again, thanks for your help. Joe
  14. I've been trying for two years to find a source for the grommet/pad that fits between the headlight bucket and the headlight stand. Suppliers (Steele, Metro) offer headlight pads for the 35, but they are for the stand to fender join. The pad is a sort of semi-soft rubber bowl that seals the bucket to the stand and allows the bucket to be adjusted. 35 Graham pads are similar but not close enough to use. The originals were destroyed (fell apart) when the car was disassembled for paint. If I could find an old reasonably complete part, I would have them reproduced, but so far I have not been able to find anything. Any suggestions or leads would be much appreciated. Joe
