  1. When was the first AOAI Convention held and how many have been held since? ...curious.
  2. I have but one regret - I didn't order Real Rodders Halibrand replicas while they were in stock. OKay, I may have a few other regrets - none associated with my '63 R1 Avanti. Over the past month or so, I've had numerous conversations with Pat O'Brien at Real Rodders Wheels (805.402.2212 -- and yes, he does answer and return phone calls). He's approaching the point where he'll make another - and probably final - run of Halibrand replicas updated for radial tires. Pat tells me his run will be limited to those for which he has pre-orders. My only interest in this post is passing on his contact info - pricing, delivery, options can only come from Pat. With a little poking around, if interested, one can find recommendations/referrals from past customers. I hope to be one. Currently, I am not.
  3. John, the day received I requested PayPal payment. I, too, see it is not posted. I will next (re) issue payment. I am so sorry. Honestly I am. I had no ill intentions. Bill
  4. Sorry for "typo" -- I lost ( can't find) the PM. Please resend contact info for PayPal. Thanks, Bill
  5. So sorry, list the PM. Please resend. Tnx, Bill
  6. It's almost embarrassing...one. I'll take two if you are offering to sell/can spare it. Thanks, Bill!
  7. Ok, Ok, Ok...hunting for a needle. I'm missing several fasteners, p/n 1350271, for the toe board plate as shown on p189 of the Parts Catalog. Ideas? Reasonable substitutions? Tnx, Bill
  8. Ordered a kit. Carpet piece over trunk latch is too wide, too short (latch to floor) and too long (latch to trunk opening). Make sense? See photo. Trunk floor parts have vinyl at spare opening sewn incorrectly - should be face-to-face, allowing loose end to be glued to spare well opening. See photo. Bring on the questions/comments...Bill
  9. To Mark, a few posts above - what an amazing story about all of your mishaps. You are, without doubt, one who is not easily discouraged!
  10. Many thanks to all! I've got sufficient information to do myself some damage! Good damage...local HomeDepot does not stock - it can be found on-line. Now has different SKU. See following, TrafficMASTER Dayside - Color Ebony Texture 6 ft. x Your Choice Length Carpet Model# MK22W180072S (16) $655/foot
  11. Is there a difference between kits sold by vendors?
  12. I want bulk material; purchase by running yard. Thanks for asking!
  13. I'm looking to buy some bulk black carpeting like used in '63 Avanti trunks. Thoughts on a source, please. I've looked at the SMS sample, and while close - it is "not quite". Thanks, Bill
  14. A few years ago my brake light switch was changed from hydraulic to mechanical. The brake lights worked for "some time". Now, not working. The mechanical switch was connected to the pressure light wires that head back to brake lights. Current diagnosis is that turn switch is defective as it feeds power to brake lights. Does that make sense? Fuse is good, both bulb filaments are functional (have park lights and turn signal on both sides), and mechanical switch checks ok. What to do? Thanks, BillyBob
