  1. I have an NOS Silver plush carpet set in the GM box for the LXXV and also a few NOS LXXV Fender/trunk emblems.
  2. They could hold your entire order if one item is on backorder. I learned this the hard way after 4 weeks. Tell them to ship what they have when you place the order.
  3. Calipers hold more fluid than cylinders. As pads wear, your fluid level will get down to a point you are sucking air. Of course you can always add fluid, but then if you squeeze your calipers to install fresh pads, you will have too much fluid for the system. Every disc setup I have seen has a much larger reservoir.
  4. I have had good luck using ABS cement for drain pipes. It is a cement so it melts it together. Works on all those broken mounting tabs also. and cheap.
  5. They are also out of the 64 material now. They told me the same story about their supplier...out of Oregon. I think they are speaking of SMS being out. They are also out of wood kits. The fawn beaumonde is unbelievably beautiful.
  6. Dirk, If you are trying to contact me, send me a PM with your email address. I will check my spam box too
  7. Hi Guys, Back from the dead after 2 different people gave me a heads up I was being summoned. Too many other car projects and a 12 hour a day job have temporarily sidelined the 65. Someday soon I will be back on it and finish it. I tried a couple of ideas. One was what you see above.

Another idea I started working on was an actuator also made by Autoloc but used for the retractable hidden license frame. I had
  8. Ok Guys, Been gone a while but since this thread was started by my buddy Ed, I felt compelled... Jamco and Coil Spring Specialties are the same product!!! I have dealt with Jamco for over a decade. Jim Sr passed about 4 years ago and his boy gave the business a try. Went OK at first, but then it turned into more and more stretched promises until finally more than 6 months went by on an order with claims that "FedEx lost 14 sets of springs". The fish got bigger and bigger. Frustrated and VERY concerned about using just any other brand, I got Jr to reveal that they actually use a company in the
  9. I don't remember. I called Marc Smiley at Classic and he gave me direction.
  10. If you cut just the rubber part in 2 straight parallel lines one on either side of the metal sleeve, you end up with an oval shape. Basically the metal sleeve wall is the small diameter of an oval and the uncut rubber makes for the larger diameter of the oval. Then it will fit into the frame with any mod
  11. Jamco is the choice for me. I have used 4 sets on a variety of cars including a 65 and a 71 Riv. very nice ride. Just bought another set for a 70 Cad
  12. These are on a friend's car. 15x6's 215/75/15 in the front 235/75/15 in the rear. He is working on ideas to replace the Cad emblem.
  13. Hey Doug, I simply cut 2 opposite side off to create the oval shape.
  14. Just bought a '70 Coupe De Ville myself
