Re: Various 1967 1968 Consoles for sale

Scott, Not really looking for a whole console. Looking for those two pieces. Also have always wanted to pick up a spare 4-speed top pad as mine has obvious repaired areas. Not like spares of those are jumping right out of the woodwork :) Would be interested in seeing the top pad as it sits redone ju...

Re: Esmerelda...

Scott was it more terrifying than letting me drive Esmerelda through downtown Franklin :)
Looks good. So you actually cut into the hood, it's not just an overlay.

Scott,
Do you by chance have any of just the windlaces (pinchwelds) for a console. Need a pair for my 67. Don't care on color just condition.

Re: Blending clear coat ?

This may sound dumb, but something I have thought about is the two tone that the GTE's have, and the trim they put at that lower body line. Is that just a stick on trim that is reproduced? Not sure I would go two tone cuz what color would look good down there on a Lime Frost car? The whole concept m...

Re: Pin stripes

So I got the F42 tape. Actually bought a couple rolls so I could do some practicing first. One of the things I am looking at though is the bend the stripes make under the quarter windows at that body line bend. Bill's BBcat thread has a good photo of it. Can see a little bit on Brian's, and Royce's....

Re: Vintage Air versus Classic Auto Air

Curious on this as well. I was hoping to use mostly stock components other than it would be nice to be able to use the 134 instead of the r-12 You don't have to remove the whole dash to get the heater/ac box out. Glove box and console a must. There is also a dash panel reinforcement rod that runs fr...

Re: Blending clear coat ?

Thanks katnip. I value everyone's input to this point, and don't doubt the wisdom and experience everyone has had along these lines. One thing I find myself trying to figure out (just for the sake of doing so more-so than for my decision making) is most say if you try to blend clear coat you will ge...

Re: Blending clear coat ?

ClawIt, It is a metallic (Lime frost) The two places I have talked to claim they can blend the base coat no problem. It's the clear that they fuss about. I would think with the metallic you would need a pretty good size area to get it to blend, but it sounds like not from what they are saying. Hanve...

Blending clear coat ?

So my 67 Lime frost has an "oops" in the paint job that needs to be fixed. Don't have a picture to put up at the time. Pretty easy to describe though. Just a scratch through clear coat and base coat in the small flat raised area of the wheel well on drivers side. It is lower about a foot above where...

Re: Reverse light diag

Scott,
You get at it from under the car. There will be a plastic housing with wires going into it where the shift lever attaches to the transmission. That is the switch.
