Re: 1967 Decor Seat Foam

I do have the Decor interior actually and I have been looking at that foam from WCCC. I was hoping to find some completed photos of seats using that foam but have not been that lucky yet. I was a little concerned about the mention of adding more foam to make up for the potential of it being thinner ...

Re: Does your disc brakes sometimes squeak? Like a mouse? LOOK!

Never seen that before! I have had rabbits and cats both alive and dead under the hood of customers cars before. The live ones scare the crap out you especially after driving the thing around and pulling in the shop to open the hood. They come flying out at ya when you least expect it!

Re: 1968 Std Sold at Mecum

For me part of the enjoyment is wrenching it on just as much as driving but not everyone sees it that way and would rather just buy it and drive it. I think everyone is right if you factor in parts and labor into taking a $2,000 project car and turning it into that clean of a car your spending at le...

Re: Factory tie down brackets on rear of car

As a technician at a couple dealerships throughout my career I have done tons and tons of PDI inspections which is when items like these would be pulled off and tossed. I sometimes wondered if those parts would be worth something 30,40,50 years from now. If only we could see into the future to know ...

Re: Free LED headlights for three lucky people.

Are there any requirements for the car besides year? As in overall condition etc. How wide of a shot are they looking for? For example my car has all the paint work and trim done but roller wheels and tires along with no glass in the car. I could get a great front end shot with the head lights but i...

Re: Old actuators worth anything?

Good to know. I will probably send mine in for some core credit at some point. I wont need them and likewise on not having anything special about my car to worry about holding on the the original parts. I dont have the space to kick them around for the rare chance the next owner might want them but ...
