  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
  12. Hi, I am looking for a pair of front marker light/turn signal housings from a 65. I’m talking about the ones below the front bumper, I don’t need the chrome trim or the plastic lenses, just the metal (I think its pot metal) housing that bolts into the fender. I don’t need show quality, I just need useable.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Thanks<o:p></o:p> Nick<o:p></o:p>
  13. To put 65 clamshells in a 64, you need to replace both front fenders, lower bumper, grill, grill panel and front bumper. You can get away with using the 64 inner fenders, just have to do a small amount of cutting. Nick
  14. I have had my door panels recovered and am would really like to replace the felts on the door panel. I did not find any "reproductions" during my searches, so has anyone ever used any of the "universal ones with any success? Nick
  15. One more TTT. Still need a 65 lower front bumper. Nick
  16. I am in need of a 65 lower frotn bumper asap. I had bought one off of ebay and it turns out to be a '64. Chrome does not need to be shiney, it can have a couple of dings (its goiing to be modded and painted anyway). So let me know what you have and what the shipping would be to Norwalk, Ct 06850. Cheers Nick
  17. My '63 is done, but I decided last winter that I prefer the clam shell headlight look, so I found a really nice pair of '65 fenders (the ones on my car now where pretty bad before I painted them so had planned on replacing them anyway), a set of 65 headlights, surrounds, bumpers and made a billet grill for it, just have to tie up the loose ends now with the grill cross piece and lower bumper. Nick
  18. I have the headlight stuff, have a custom grill and have the front bumper...the inner fenders sare ok, just the angel at the ends of the grill cross piece are at a different angle than the fender mating surfaces. Nick
  19. I am doing a 65 fender/headlight conversion on my 63. I mocked up the fenders today and noticed that they don't match up with the front panel (the piece across the front that the grill attaches to) Was that a unique item to 65 aswell? Nick
