  2. Im in Norwalk, Ct. Looking for $24,000 OBO. My vision was a modern Pro-Touring/Street fighter look. You want chrome and flashy stuff, you won’t find much of that here I am afraid! BODY - I began by adding a complete 65 front end (fenders, headlights, turn signals, custom lower bumper with driving lights and billet grill) I added genuine 1956 Buick portholes in the fenders, shaved the door handles/locks (doors are now controlled from a remote fob with a hidden emergency door button in the car), Hagen’s Hot Rods rear teardrop tail lights, exterior trim smoothed, custom hood scoop, front and rear
  3. I bought the whole kit, should be here tomorrow. Nick
  4. Went to move the '64 out to give it detail and found the brake pedal went to the floor...master cylinder has no fluid...puddle under the left chassis rail at the rear...the line at the junction with the flex line is broken. So my question is...can I get this brake line (the main one that runs to the rear from the distribution block under the master cylinder)? or should I just buy a length of 3/16 line and make my own (it must be 7 feet long!!)? and lastly how hard is it to replace the whole thing? any feedback would be most appreciated. Thanks, Nick
  5. I need two parts for my custom 64 to finish it off. 1- the little round nut that mounts the trim pice to the wiper arm mount on the cowl panel in front of the windshield. 2. I need an -on/off accesory switch that mounts to the panel under the dash, dont care what it was orignally for, just needs to be an on/off type. Any help will be much appreciated. thanks Nick
  6. They are in very nice shape, no rust, they where on my 64 and custom painted before I did a front conversion to 65 fenders/bumpers/lights (see attached picture). I was storing them in my shed and it got partially crushed by a tree during hurricane Sandy and they are just taking up too much room in my garage now.(I also have a lower radiator panel and a modified 65 grill if anyone wants to move the headlights into the ends of the 63/64 fenders) $150 OBO for the pair ..They are big, heavy and would be a fortune to ship. I am in Norwalk, Ct come get 'em if you want them! thanks Nick
  7. If the backspacing is right, dont worry about the offset. Backspace and offset both give you the location of the wheel mounting face, but they are measured differently, by using two different points of reference. Lets start of by choosing a wheel, say 17x8. The 8 part is the "bead" width so to speak, the inner distance between the front and rear wheel lips, where the tire would mount. Now if you put that same 8" wide wheel flat on the ground and measured from the floor, to the outer edge, it would = 9", the 8" bead width, plus 1/2" front and back for the wheel lip. Ok backspace measurement - t
  8. Thanks for the feedback guys, hopefully the weather stays dry (thou cold) this weekend and I can get the fender on and then final body work. I wish just getting a '65 was an option...but theres so much time already in the rest of the car (suspension, bodywork, chrome, interior) that I am going to finish the front conversion...even if it kills me! LOL Nick
  9. After a lengthy break, I am back to finishing the 65 conversion on the front of my 64.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> In the process of fitting the passenger side fender, I have come across a strange issue, as it’s a custom build, not sure anyone has even had this experience, but I am throwing it out there in case I get lucky with someone else that has input.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> It appears that the passenger side front fender hits the top of the inner fender (by the h
  10. These are very nice, i would say a good 9/10, the only mark is on the underside where the bumper they where on was put down on the ground without protection so there are small marks, will NOT be seen once installed. I was told they are re-chromed originals, not a repro part. $175 obo + shipping. I can take Paypal. thanks Nick
  11. Gene, let me confirm we are going to Carlisle, if yes, then we can arrange to meet up. Thanks Nick
