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?
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.
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.
Sorry, sometimes it's hard to tell someone's skill level through the internet. No you don't need a vacuum schematic to check the system they are very basic. All you have to remember is that anything between the base plate of the carb. and the manifold needs to be checked. This includes the manifold itself on the small chance of a hairline crack, all fittings that screw into it (except on the front most coolant runner), all around it's gasket surface, all hoses coming out of it and the carb. all along there length and where they terminate. you also need to check things like the modulator valve if auto, the vacuum advance dashpot on the distributor and the power brake booster if you have one. The best way to check these is with a hand held vacuum pump like a mity vac as they are inexpensive. As a mechanic doing it for a living years ago I always found oxygen if you have a set of torches the easiest and cleanest to sniff out the leaks in the hoses and such while idling as it will cause the rpms to raise up when there is a leak. If none a home plumbers torch with propane works just as good and some people use carb. cleaner but be careful if you have a pretty engine as it can discolor some paints, also be careful when spraying near a hot manifold. For these reasons I like the above two methods better. Also as I said don't forget to check all around the baseplate of the carb. but be careful if you have an open element air cleaner as it can suck it through the filter and fool you. This whole process won't take you more then 20 minutes to a half hour at most.
My Firebird was restored and set up with coil springs when it did not have a factory air conditioner. However, a classic car dealer added the factory air back and now the right side wheel rubs on the fender. In my research I discovered that the air conditioning adds 113 pounds and perhaps I need heavier duty coil springs. However, if I add the heavier springs won’t the driver side also raise? Currently the passenger side stance is 1 1/8 inch lower than the driver side.
Hi U yes, that 9262 would work for your 350 especially since you're OB'd and ported heads. Like Barnbird mentioned, you'll need to test different jets and needles. Also with today's fuel (less octane and lead) you might need to make some adjustments to your air & fuel bleeds. Involves micro hand drill bits to open them up 1/1000's" The 9262 is a desirable model (and it's a Pontiac), not the highest demand but would work well for what you described. $350 seems a bit high unless it's totally rebuilt, matching numbers and tested.
It was but did show signs of some cancer. They have since been repaired & is under restoration. But a hernia has me stopped in my tracks right now. But should have some good time to get some things done before winter...
