Dean: I also use flathead pop rivets to hold the cardboard to the metal. I usually make staples to hold the weatherstrip on. I looke so much better that way.
Good Luck

I ordered some dense felt from McMaster-Carr. I beleive it was 1/4" thick. I gluded the roof supports to the top with structural adhesive. Then cut 4 panels of the felt and gluded them on with contact adhesive.

You can get belts from any of the suppliers.. I like Ground-Up Restorations or Heaartbeat City. Bolts are available also. I don't know if the plastic covers that cover the bolts (at the floor as well as the roof) are available. If you want lables they are available from Snakeoyl products. They wont sew them on repo belts though. The repo belts are very close to stock,there is something different with the weave pattern. I couldn't notice it though.
Good Luck

Restoration / Re: Help with Differences in Door Glass
« on: January 20, 2009, 08:41:56 PM »
My 69 has original door glass that has both a verticle and horizontal curve. I bought repo's and they only have the verticle curve. When installed the repo's have a gap between the fuzzy and the glass. I have tried to find repo's with both curves with no luck. I am wondering now if 68 glass is straight acrost the bottom because of the chrome piece on the 68. Maybe the repo's were paterened from the 68 although they advertizethem for 68 and 69. Maybe somone with a 68 could check, with the window up all the way will a straight edge lay flat against the bottom of the window by the chrome strip?

You will want to buy nos (new old stock). They are expensive but the repo's will require a skilled and very experienced body man several hours to fit on the car so the price will come out the same. You can find them on ebay if you keep checking. Original fenders should have a blue GM sticker and may have a bar code. Repo's will come in a box not marked "GM".
Good Luck

I had the same problem and it was the switch. The bulbs are a pain to change. Remove the connector from the switch and jump the middle terminal to either end with a piece of wire to check. You should be able to "peal" the carpet back without removing the kick panel.

sixt9x33rs: There are many. many different rust preventitive products on the market. I like the cosmoline product, it's heavy wax with a lot of solvent so it will spray. The military used it for long term armament storage. New black oxide bolts usually come coated with it. It is easy to remove with solvent.
I usually just spray it into a cup and coat the parts I want coated with a small brush. I would imagine you could put it over Boeshield, as always try an experment first.
Good Luck

Sandblasting will lighten the color. They are heat treated steel and have a medium gray color. Try paint stripper. I coated mine with Eastwood Diamond semi-gloss clear with cosmoline over that. Cosmoline is available from Rick's in a spray can. I keep it on all the black oxide bolts.

Good luck
