Re: 69-70 repro center caps

Still have a few sets of these caps, and 1 used set that were on my car for about a year. I'll do 70 shipped for the new ones and 40 shipped for the used ones

Re: Wet floorboard.

My cowl vents were fine, but my floorboards still got wet. Turns out it was my windshield gasket that was so old and dry, it split in several places. It funnelled water into the cabin and onto my floor.

Re: Possible trade for my 68 jcode 4 speed

Keeping it stock and original is a great option too. Or you can get a 347 stroker and install it using the original air cleaner, valve covers, pulleys etc. It would look stock but be more fun. Looks like im either gonna keep it stock, or get rid of it and start a new project. Looking at possible go...

Re: Saddle interior paint matching

The pad and base should be the same color on standard. It will end up looking a little different applied to hard plastic vrs the soft vinyl. I did my kick panels, console base and all my vinyl padding with the Sem stuff from NPD. Just make sure you request that the cans all have the same date code ...

Re: Possible trade for my 68 jcode 4 speed

What you have is very desirable... Put your original motor and trans on the shelf and buy a plug and play crate motor with aluminum heads and a 5 spd. It will out handle any big block car and be faster than most depending on what route you go. That has definitely crossed my mind. I still feel bad t...
