    Quarter window seal replacement 66 fury 2door or similar

    I ended up using the non-flocked version from Vans that is listed as fitting C Bodies, and while it did fit, it didn't want to stay in place, especially at the very top and after a few times of opening and closing the door. I ended up using weatherstrip adhesive to keep it in place. Are your...

    Interior paint colors

    I have the exact same question for my 66 Newport with the L7 red interior. The painted things seem to be a match with "Red Metallic" but I don't know for sure, it might be "Metallic Maroon" . . . and don't want to spend $35 on a can of spray paint that doesn't match.

    weatherstrip install advice

    I ended up using rubber cement on my quarter window seals. They didn’t want to stay otherwise. I still to need to adjust the alignment of the front windows because they want to catch on the new seals when rolling up …. Good luck, it takes time and finagling to get everything working right.

    Herb's Parts - Need Interior Color Paint

    I have the 66 “metallic red” interior, but the cowl vent panels, window trim surround and lower dash panel are all different shades of red than the vinyl. How do I figure out the correct shades for those three items?

    Alternator Cosmetic Restoration

    We can agree to disagree. It’s less water than if you used engine cleaner and a pressure washer to clean your engine bay. But that’s a whole other conversation… thanks for your comments!

    Alternator Cosmetic Restoration

    Many steam cleaners come with very small nozzles that allow you to “finesse” your application of the steam in very manageable ways without getting it into the internals of the part you’re working on. It can be done. It’s almost like using compressed air.

    Alternator Cosmetic Restoration

    Maybe some all purpose cleaner or degreaser, a small detail brush and a steam cleaner. That would work pretty well.

    Another Chrysler restoration on YouTube

    He got it running, who knows how far he’ll take it. These “barn find” “will it run?” Videos tend to run out of steam pretty quickly once the expenses start adding up.

    Some APC and a steam cleaner will get rid of it all. I use a McCullough Professional steamer and some "purple" APC from O'Reillys.

    300 emblem on grill

    maybe a healthy application of "Goo Gone" liquid can get beneath everything and loosen the adhesive. Might take several days of soaking . . . might also try a heat gun or hair dryer on the back and see if the adhesive will loosen that way.

    300 emblem on grill

    I've got some Newport hubcaps that have a similar type of emblem in the middle of the wheel, and to me, it looks like at some point in the manufacturing process a clear plastic resin is poured over the painted parts of the emblem and left to level out and dry. If that's the case, the only way I...
