    1979 E58 360-4V

    The little red truck had a dual snorkel air cleaner and chrome dress. My Police Aspen just has blue parts, black air cleaner but I never saw anything chrome on police cars other than some 60's Ferds. Some Super coupes may have got through with chrome as an option. I have seen them but don't...

    Fender tags

    Until fairly recently, the build sheets really didn't mean much to very many people, me included. We would rip out the seat or the dash, find it and in the trash it went. Not like we could decipher them anyway. Redo the car nicely and they wouldn't bring massive rich folk money like now so...

    Fender tags

    I have found quite a few of them, but they are almost always rotten crumbling garbage and not much use

    FOR SALE 4 barrel air cleaner

    You are doing us all a service by making sure some of these parts don't get scrapped. They may not be worth that much today, but in 5 or ten years, there may not be one to be found

    You could give that wanker Mark Worman a heart attack that way. If he falls over and clutches his chest, I'll buy you lunch for a year

    rearr quarter extensions

    Depending on what you have in your hands, try to fiberglass them or the black stuff GM sells for rubber bumper repair

    80 Mirada,

    It could be. Depending on the computer, and the camera or phone that took the pic, it's pretty close to me. I did a Super Bee in Ford Ranger blue and it was awfully close. I had the paint and it was good enough for a relative wanting to save some money

    rearr quarter extensions

    If you have really trashed end caps, but you have them still and plan on keeping the car a while, IF IT WERE MINE, I would make them from steel, then finish them in lead to get them perfectly smooth. Then DP-90 and paint. They would never need anything again. No warpage, very strong. Super easy...

    80 Mirada,

    The hard work is paying off. Couldn't ask for more!

    Quarter panel replacement

    I am about to do the leading edge of an Ambassador hood that has a rust out. Can't get a hood so I will weld in a patch. It's the leading edge where it rolls under and meets the grille. It's a bit complex but it looks harder to do than it is. I won't be using any special super technology. Stuff...

    Quarter panel replacement

    Which sections are you going to have to cut out?

    Quarter panel replacement

    Just look at the bright side, it's not one of those 57 chevys where everything behind the headlight rotted out from the crap being slung in there for years. You go to replace the headlight because it's dim, and the whole shebang just crumbles and there is nothing to mount a headlight to anymore

    Quarter panel replacement

    Well yeah, most of the quarter is flat. I usually just cut out what I need from some 16 gauge and if it needs a little bend I do it. I have a flanging tool too, the best $200 I ever spent. Cut, measure, fit, flange, plug weld and lead it in. Even the arches aren't bad. Metal is easier to shape...

    Quarter panel replacement

    The wagon stampings are what they are. I have a Volare wagon and it's all steel. I don't have access to an ealry M, but it would appear they modified the dies to make the new big wide wrap around tail lamps and do away with the small side marker light. Just what you say, you can buzz off...

    Quarter panel replacement

    For 4 doors they are the same from Volare to LB/Dip. I don't have any LeBaron/Dip wagons handy. The 4 doors use different rubber end caps to facilitate various tail lights. I don't think the wagons use a rubber end cap though, so you may have to use Volare tail lights if you use the quarters. I...

    mirada door glass outside sweep

    I recently restored an AMC Javelin. The local (small) windshield place had the exact stuff I needed, 6 foot sticks. They had about 40 different styles. I had to go to their shop and look through their assortment and found it. Go hit up the windshield places, especially the non-mega chain ones...

    1978 Aspen Police car dual exhaust

    I don't have part 6. I can bend and braze or tig I have to look some more. I think I still have those weird clamps and the smaller stuff in a box with the spotlights, the lean burn and the other crap

    1978 Aspen Police car dual exhaust

    If you look under the car, it's pretty easy to see why they did it this way. If it weren't for the resonator, they could have stuck twin tailpipes right out next to one another. It almost looks like that was the plan and then they decided against it and turned it single at the last minute. It...

    1978 Aspen Police car dual exhaust

    I have no problem bending all of that. I doubt if any of it is available anyway. I can get the resonator and possibly the hangars. Now that I am older and have more time, having it look correct actually matters.

    1978 Aspen Police car dual exhaust

    This is a long shot, but my 1978 Aspen Police car HAD dual exhaust a long time ago, and as you might expect I had to replace it when it got crappy and I just used what I could get...nobody had the dual exhaust parts then and I didn't have the time to make it. I was driving the car daily back...

    Light Bar for an F Body

    They are stripped and sold in separate auctions. They sell in lots, huge truckloads. The light bars often go from an older retired car to a new one. They sell huge lots of them when they switch to a new style of light bar and they take them all off. They also gradually acquire a massive pile of...
