 I used the process Ed posted and it works. I had to cut through the flapper centers just enough using a Dremel cutoff wheel to split them so as to remove the shaft.

Ed,
   And the rear antenna was available as an option with AM too, correct? Your reply sort of makes it seem like you have to have the AM/FM radio to order the rear option.

 I've used just one 4oz. bottle from GM in my 67 12bolt rear and had absolutely no problems.

 Though not a COPO, both my 67's L35's still have their 267-BR coils.

 Neither of my two '67's with standard interior have the buzzer. I'm not sure if it came with the deluxe interior.

 My 67 04B LOS L35 VIN stamp starts with L7 instead of 7L. There was a run of those misstamps.

 That looks like it would be a tight fit in the tunnel.
Seeing the sellers name 'super-novass' made the song 'Champagne Supernova' pop into my mind.
Now I can't help singing it  ;D

Not sure how to clean the crud off (maybe youtube?) but for protection I use Novus Plastic Polish no.1 . It cleans and also leaves a protective shine.

Is there something that shows the item is eligible? I am watching a few used items and added one to a cart as a test but didn't see anything that mentioned it was eligible and it still showed the current price.

If the pits aren't too deep into the surface, a machinist can cut the journals down to clean them up.

  I don't know about anyone else, but there is no way I could feel comfortable in a room knowing my car was outside with some low-life looking to steal a car especially at some event. My 'Comfort Suite' would be me in my front seat with an M-1911 at my side to ward off any possible thieves.

 I would think that after 50+ years the thickness of an original would shrink a little, so maybe the reproduction is correct being it's new.
