Alternative armrest fasteners on a 67

I've got a 67 and looking at swapping in 68 deluxe door panels. However, while the lock, mirror remote, door handle and window handle are in the same spot, the arm rest bolt holes are in a different spot. There's not enough space to cut new little squares for the factory screw retainers. Has anyone ...

Re: 1967 standard non-console to console conversion

Yeah, the white piece popped out of the loop on the shifter arm.

Re: 1967 standard non-console to console conversion

I finally got it all lined up, and it was good for about two trips, and then the little linkage thing came off. I'm not loving the console situation.

Re: 1967 standard non-console to console conversion

Ok, good to know. The half moon shape on the end made me think maybe it was shrouding around the light and focusing it into each indicator. I will pull it all apart again tonight and make sure nothing is in backwards or something.

Re: 1967 standard non-console to console conversion

I'm re-awakening this old thread because I finally have my new shifter in, my air-conditioning installed and a new radio bezel piece. I put everything back together, but my shift indicator light does not line up at all with the correct spots. In fact, it just stays on P until I finally get the car s...

Re: The Vintage Air Incident

Vintage Air tech support said to make sure the valve is plugged in correctly because sometimes not all three prongs in the plug go in. He also verified that if I pull off the hose, I should be able to see it opening and closing in correspondence to the controls with the key on but without the car ru...

Re: The Vintage Air Incident

Drove the car home with cold AC. Of course, then I decided to check the heat. It seems to blow a little less cold, but it didn't warm up much at all. I'm thinking the heater valve may not be functioning -- at this point, wouldn't surprise me at all. I guess I'll pull the hose later when the car cool...

Re: The Vintage Air Incident

I have a 140 Amp alternator, so that was not the issue. The shop called a few minutes ago and said with the new ECU it's now working right and blowing cold. Going to pick it up this evening.

Re: Modern endoscopic wifi cameras vs. What Crank Do I Have

I borrowed the DEPSTECH wifi cam from a friend, and the app and cam worked well, but I needed it to fit in the glowplug hole of a Westerbeke diesel engine, and it just wasn't quite small enough.

The Vintage Air Incident

So I posed the question last year on whether or not to go with Classic Auto Air or Vintage Air. Through some various discounts and other factors, I ended up purchasing a Vintage Air kit through CVF Racing since I had already purchased a compressor through them when I did my serpentine belt kit. Here...
