    Leaky Rear Window - '66 Newport

    So, after many months of speculation, I've now confirmed that my rear window leaks water into the trunk. What to do? I can see that someone, at sometime in the past, did some sort of repair to the seal, as some black rtv-like substance can be seen, but no other details are available. I'm...

    Front door glass adjustment

    The front door glass on the passenger side of my 66 Newport is about a half inch lower in the rear and then it is in the front. I didn’t see anything in the FSM about adjusting that. Does anyone have any insight on how that can be remedied? The gap creates wind noise and allows water to leak in...

    Dubious Trunk Repairs on ‘66

    I had already guessed by the sloppily applied and grossly over-sprayed truck bed liner that there were some previous repairs made to the trunk at some point in the past. After this winters bout with way too much condensation, both in the cabin and in the trunk, I decided that on a nice warm...

    65-66 hood latch adjustment

    The hood on my '66 Newport requires a healthy slam to close and creates a loud POP when opening. I'm thinking the adjustment is just a "little" bit off, but I can't figure out what to tweak. Any tips? If you mention "read the FSM," please include "book, chapter, verse" so I can find it...

    Firewall rustout

    Hi, on my '66 Newport, the passenger side of the cowl doesn't drain below the car like it should, it drains into the engine compartment, due to that area being rusted out. See photo below. Is this a structural concern, or more of just an annoyance? Thanks.

    Windshield Seal leaks when raining

    Hi The windshield on my '66 Newport leaks at the bottom when it is raining. I get little pools of water at the seal where it meets the dash pad. Not a lot, but enough to drip down and potentially ruin the carpet (again). I'm worried about the windshield breaking when removing it to replace...

    66 Newport Backup Light Housing removal

    I'm trying to remove the backup light housings so I can clean them up, replace the bulbs, etc. I removed the two screws that go through the lens, and the assembly kind of moves around, but the lens won't come off, and the housing won't come out either. Not wanting to break something while...
