  3. Some progress to report. I'll just say that my cars have been happy with COVID... I took a break from body work, and put the engine bay back together, and hope to have the Nailhead running again soon, and the car running around the parking lot for a bit of exercise. It's been very gratifying to put painted and zinc'd parts back together again. You might note a lot of AC stuff going on in here...

  5. Back, and with what appears to be the latest Invision software version!!! Really liking the new Gallery format and the displaying of members Albums etc. Also like the Recent activity side bar where you can get a quick peek at ALL the post on All the different forums. @Admin El Diablo This has got to be costing some bucks!!! There use to be a donation link at the top of the page, is that going to return.

  10. The vacuum line goes behind the dash and radio to the washer buttom. From the washer button to the washer pump on the vent cover, not installed here yet, passing here. The washer fluid from the washer jar passes back inside through the same grommet and goes to a split and to the squirt nozzles at the wiper arm bases.

  13. Of all the dangerous things to do in life - and we have all done plenty - falling out of the Lazy Boy has got to be "one in a quadrillion"!! Glad you are on the mend!

  14. Hello, I have a 54 Special 2dr Hardtop 46R that is requiring a lot of work to get her back on the road. With some help from members and owners I hope to find information that I have not yet found online. I have had the vehicle for ten years and taking my time to fix her right.

  16. Dang, that would mean some dusting and polishing of what dust collectors I have here at the house. 😜 The AACA Grand National and some Repeat Preservation awards are up at the shop. Trying to get Mark to build a trophy case in the shop office to display all of the shop’s show wins. For me, the real trophies are the great experiences I’ve had sightseeing in the areas around the shows. #1 for me is the Gilmore Museum!

  18. Photo caption - "Charlie Crawford and Bob Baize (buying a car with dimes - in bucket)" This is a historical photo from Lawrenceburg TN where I live. Bob Baize was the local Buick dealer in Lawrenceburg back in the 50s and 60s. Charlie Crawford was the owner/editor of one of our local newspapers - hence paying with dimes! I thought you guys would enjoy seeing this photo as much as I did!

    Hello All, I had asked El Diablo if there was a donation feature anywhere on the site, He says the forum is supported through the sales of literature and the like. If you see something you would like to have, by all means purchase something. I'm going to see what I can do...

  38. It was pretty crusty in there. Looked like dried up old lithium grease that wouldn't allow the discs to seat properly on the sealing surfaces down inside the body. Used a high tech pencil eraser with a little piece of 800 grit sand paper stuck to the end to get down in there and get at those surfaces. Cleaned everything up real good and greased the discs. Seems to be holding vacuum well. Will get it back in the car and see what happens.

  39. Hello everybody! My name is Matt, I'm from Poland and I'm restoring 1954 Buick Roadmaster convertible. Here are some pictures of that car before restoration. Now it's stripped to the ground, whole chassis was already painted and I'm assembling the frame. Main problem is that I'm still missing rear seat. I hope that someone here will help me with that. I've heard that probably any 54-56 Buick, Oldsmobile or Cadillac in convertible body will have same back seat. Still I didn't have luck to find any.
