  1. Or lube them in place with WD40, and work them loose. Be careful of the plastic knobs, they are fragile and hard to replace.
  2. The ribbed speaker cover will work, but it's from a 55.
  3. No word from him, huh? Too bad, in the past he was great. Did you try your local '55 guy, Steve Rostam? Not much difference in radios beside the knobs...
  4. Just saw this in HMN. States power steering, brakes,, seat and windows, plus factory AC!! Might be worth a call - Eldon at 801-489-8101.
  5. I have worked with Alan over the years and find him very reliable, so I assume all is well with your radio. I will send you a private message with his snail-mail address.
  6. Have you seen this? https://www.ebay.com/itm/1954-1955-1956-BUICK-SUPER-EMBLEM-EMBLEMS-54-55-56/163959650983?hash=item262cc1baa7:g:G20AAOSwwMxd2ucR
  7. Best to be more specific - I have this car, so what else fits? Hardtop or sedan? Two or four doors? There should be some interchange, but the devil is in the details.
  8. 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...
  9. Thanks! Just so happened to have things between all apart and all back together - and for the moment clean - for some good pics of the topic.
  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.
  11. Then to a y split, going up to the wiper motor one way and the other inside the firewall for the washer pump.
  12. Then through the hose clip beside the battery to the water manifold, and you're home!
  13. Then from core along the outer frame, avoiding moving parts, with your choice of zip ties, and up past and outboard of the steering gear.
