    What are these for?

    I just found these in my parts stash. They came off my 65 Belvedere and I blasted and painted them, probably back in 2010. I have forgotten their use. Look like shims to me and located somewhere where they got real rusty! Thanks! Mike

    My solution for those funky top windshield trim clips.

    I think anyone that replaced a headliner in a 1965 is familiar with the 4 clips of which I speak. They were probably speedy on the assembly line and cheap but, are really a one-use item. Well, I had issues, so I redesigned the attachment, and it was simple! I flattened out the clips on a piece...

    Parking brake woes.

    Hi fellas, I am trying to install the parking brake in my 65 Belvedere but, can't hook up the cable end. It doesn't appear to be long enough to reach the clevis in the pedal mechanism? I don't have the original to compare and I can see no way the floor grommet can fit over the flange on the...

    Antirattle repair. FYI

    Hi fellas, I put the refurbished window regulators in my 65 Belvedere 2 Dr.Htp. and needed a replacement for the cloth tube on the door latch rod. I have seen many of these in poor shape. I just received 50' of 1/4" flexible wiring loom this PM and something looked right so I cut a 2" piece...

    Tail lamp lens screws?

    Hi fellas, Does anyone here have a source for the screws that secure the plastic lens to the lamp housing for my 65 Belvedere? They are designed for plastic and are self tapping. Mine are in pretty rough shape. You would think for the price of the new lenses 8 screws could be included. Mike

    Sail Panel Schooling Please.

    Hi fellas, I purchased a pair of panels from Classic Ind. and see several holes. The irregular center hole would be for the courtesy lamps but, is there a reason for the others? How do these panels fasten to the roof pillar? Does the courtesy lamp hold the panel in place? My head liner was...

    2 DRHT C-pillar boards?

    Hi fellas, The headliner in my 65 was trashed/mostly missing when I bought it. Is there any type of board under the headliner where it covers the C-pillar (courtesy lamp area)? Anyone have pictures? Thanks! Mike

    65 Door Hinge Bolts?

    Hi fellas, Does anyone here know the correct placement and lengths of the different factory supplied door hinge bolts? I assume the bolts with the larger washers cover the square hinge holes but I seem to have 3 different styles/lengths in my hardware bag. This could be a problem with many years...

    Preferred left door mirror placement (HDTP)?

    Hi fellas. I see the drivers door mirror either mounted toward the front on the door or about 1/3 of the way back to the rear. Mine measures 31 1/8" from the rear of the door to the rear mirror screw hole. What does everyone prefer? I have time to weld up my screw holes before paint so I am...

    1965 Belvedere Fender Install.

    Hi fellas, It's been almost 11 years since disassembly and I've lost many brain cells in that time so, are there 2 studs used during each fender installation? I bagged up 2 per fender with 2 large washers (captive) on 5/16" nuts. I know one installs bottom rear into a large U-nut. Where should...

    Sealing rear window trim?

    I have a leak into the trunk of my 65 Coronet sedan. I had the window professionally removed and replaced to allow me to convert rust forming in the depression below the window, under the trim. I used POR15 and top coated with body color. I didn't think the situation through at the time (last...
