  1. I am in the final leg of my 78, body off restoration. I have all of the interior pieces including the floor carpet and the trunk carpet. I even have some of the cardboard backers. I also have all the old nuts and bolts as I replaced everything but those are going to metal scrapper. I can't guarantee that all the pieces are there as some disintegrated and some got ripped uninstalling. But I used them as the templates for my new interior. If anybody wants them, they can have them but they either have to pick up in the Chicago area or pay shipping. Otherwise I will discard them
  2. there is an article in the latest issue of the Avanti magazine about sunroof repair
  3. This is for a GM compressor.. look like what you need?
  4. I might have one let check.
  5. Thanks for sharing. I think I know what my problem was. Since I am doing the interior myself, I did not leave enough material on the inside of the post for the rubber to sit down on and it was trying to push the rubber back off. I had glued the vinyl on the door side of the post and pulled it tight around the window flange. I am removing the material and will now glue it on BOTH side of the flange. Or maybe only glue it on the inside. Anybody have any comments about NOT wrapping it around the flange.
  6. I tried to install a windshield this weekend on a 78. I followed all the advice given in previous posts. End result I cracked the windshield! I had the rubber on the glass with 3M bedding compound. I had the stainless installed and taped down. I marked the center on the gun-sight both on glass and body. I marked the top center of the glass and frame. I had the rope installed and 3 other helpers. I added 3M bedding to the window frame. Everything was going good. glass was centered, rope was pulling out and rubber was sitting onto the inside flange. The problem was the rubber, on
  7. I also used the H7137 brake kit for all hardware and springs
  8. Thanks Brad. I am embarrassed that I had to ask! After posting I found the old rubber and yes, it slid in the extrusion. After I compared the profile of it and the new piece, I saw my error. what is more frustrating is that I ordered a rubber kit for a 78, from one of the major vendors and I got this piece. I’ll check out the other options you listed More cost and more time lost.! thanks for responding Brad
  9. i have the same channel but the rubber piece I received in my 'Rubber Kit' will not fit into the channel. per the pictures it would appear that it sits on top of the channel. There are 6 holes in both the channel and the rubber but only 5 of them line up! If I am correct then there is a hollow space between the metal channel and the Rubber? unfortunately this is one area a forgot to take a lot of pictures when disassembling! It's been a few years since I disassembled it. I am assuming that when installing on the body the order is: Butyl Rubber caulk, Rain Gutter, Metal Channel, Rub
  10. Opps meant sent email. What do you want for it?
  11. Sent address via messenger
  12. Need a little help here. Still waiting on my car to get back from painters (2nd time) and I am buffing the trim. Seems I am missing one of these. It is the joiner between the trim on the front of the door opening to the drip rail above the door. It might be the same as the joiner on the inside console trim but I don’t have the car here to compare. Does anybody have one? Yes I know of Nostolgic and Meyers but thought I would try here 1st. Thanks
  13. I’m also using a little rubbing compound with the steel wool on the worst scratches. Then polishing compound
  14. Thank you. Just needed it confirmed before trying to buff or polish. There is a LOT of stainless trim to buff out and polish! Unfortunately there are some deep scratches in the chrome. Not going to re-chrome but will try 0000 steel wool and hopefully the shine will hide (detract) the scratches!
  15. I am in the process of buffing all the stainless trim pieces and then came to the front vent window assembly. I have the assembly out and I have removed the actual vent window. Is the channel around the actual glass stainless? looks to be. Is the assembly that the framed glass, stainless or Chrome plated. I think it is Chrome plated. Also, anybody know where I can get the 1/8" flat head rivets to hold the front weather strip in?
