I bought a set of door & quarter panels from a site member a couple years ago. I wanted the door panel stainless trim. I still have the 1/4 panels. Trim is not perfect but could be cleaned up to be decent. These are ‘68. Not sure if 67’s are the same.
Thank you JimC . I called them and asked about that new hinge method, but also not much help said they sell the folding window but not the hinge they use. Asked if he could give me any advise or direction , said he couldn’t . Was thinking maybe trying the Flex Shot product , which another member advise of . It’s a rubberized caulking that is flexible but not sure if strong enough.
Thanks Jim, I’m having trouble mounting mine and having the chrome wrap around the edge of the door evenly all the way down That’s why I’m thinking I need some washers to use as spacers ? Under chrome screw holes?
Thank you JimC , I contacted them but not much help. Said they only sell product and would not give me the manufacture name or number … Thank you for trying though . I guess strike two and have to wait an see if anyone else has any advise…
Thank you Dr for the guidance.. I contacted them and was told they are only a distributer and don’t do repairs , so will keep searching to see what I can use.. was also told that maybe Flex Shot could work but not sure, I never used it and haven’t heard if this product really works for this type of repair making a silicone hinge.
I've gone to Lowes no less than 5 times with NOS keys and had them cut free of charge every time. It's always a nice conversation of whatcha got and then we exchange stories on old cars. I'd recommend just showing up to one of the big box stores. I've been lucky and the human side comes out when I'm face to face with them.
A little story first: In '69 my Bird did not have the guards from the factory so I ordered them from our local Pontiac dealer parts department. When at the dealer for some warranty work I picked them up and had them on the back seat. The service manager said they could install them and I agreed. He charged me $2.
The little brake line clamp on the left that looks like a lawnmower throttle cable clamp that attaches to the frame. Is it Al color (like on a lawnmower) or black? There are some similar in the interior on the vent and A/C controls.
I just ordered a set of new 4 piston calipers from Firebird Central, new castings with stainless steel cylinders, comes with the short hard line to brake hose. I'll let you know how they look once they get here.
I’m looking mounting a set of nos chrome door edge guards and was looking at it well.,, Seems like I’ll need to get install a washer or 2 behind mounting bracket to get it to sit right ? Does anyone have any installed on there bird ? Any tips ? Pics ? Thank you in advance,,,,,,Doug
Trying to repair the rear folding glass on my 1967 Firebird. The silicone bead that holds both glass together has come apart. I removed all the old silicone bead and prepped it to run another new bead, but not sure which product to use since it needs to have extra strength and flexibility. I tried the regular clear silicone for windows , but as soon as I lowered the top the bead cracked not strong enough. Was told that it has to be a 400 % flexibility sealant like a Tec7 Sealant that is only sold in the UK . Not sure if there anything similar to that here in the US. Has anyone performed this repair and can advise which silicone sealant could work … I’ve included pics of the the repair and prep work , just holding off to find the right product to use. Or has anyone repaired this using another method . Thank you all..
Thanks, I believe you're correct, mine are replacement keys. I ordered NOS key blanks and went through a nightmare getting them cut. I assumed copying keys was part of a locksmith's expertise. Little did I know! Called over 10 locksmiths no one can do it! Went to HD and Lowe's, no go, they only do it if you use their blanks. Had one locksmith quote me $20, went to local swap meet and had 2 keys copied for $4. Ugh!
