    '66 Newport 2 Door hardtop

    After successfully repairing the leaky rear window channel, I got my newly refurbished package tray installed. I used a piece of marine canvas that was UV resistant, mildew resistant, everything resistant, and it matched the color of the interior perfectly.

    '66 Newport 2 Door hardtop

    After some cleaning, I can see that it’s not the window seal that’s bad, but rather some pin holes on the metal trough directly under the glass. I know there’s a proper way to fix this, but I’m not gonna do that at this juncture. I’m thinking some sort of caulking; something that will buy me 5...

    '66 Newport 2 Door hardtop

    I got the rear window trim removed today and found what appeared to be three or four small holes in what I think is the sheet metal. I’m gonna get it all cleaned up so I can tell what I’m looking at and then go from there.

    '66 Newport 2 Door hardtop

    Well, while working on my leaky rear window problem, I decided this is a perfect time to rejuvenate my package tray. I considered buying some hardboard or Masonite, and a jigsaw, and making a new one from scratch, but then I figured my original wasn’t so bad. It just had a few broken pieces, and...

    Quarter windows now properly repaired and 100% functional! Last year I attempted to repair the broken quarter windows on my '66 Newport. I was somewhat successful in as much as they would go down, but they wouldn't always come back up due to some incorrect replacement parts. All of that has...

    66 Chrysler Door Panel Restoration

    I can't believe they riveted the lens directly to that material (fiber board?) without so much as a steel washer or anything for backing . . .

    '66 Newport 2 Door hardtop

    Warning: Graphic Content. While making some adjustments to the drivers side mirror so that the wing window would not hit the mirror when opening it, I discovered the underside of the drivers door looks like a scene from “when blackheads attack.” I’m not sure how the top of the door would get...

    Summer break has arrived so the first thing I’m doing is installing new cat whiskers on the front door windows.

    I also made a short video talking about how I performed the Ammeter Bypass on my '66 Newport. Hope this helps someone out there who is considering doing this little upgrade.

    All of the oddities that I was having after starting her up for the first time since November have cleared themselves out. The light was good this evening so I took some photos.

    Gave the SS Anderson a proper wash over the weekend, so I thought I'd make a quick video to show some of the repairs and improvements I've done over the last year. I'm gonna have to polish the paint a bit again since the car cover has introduced some defects. Check out the video!

    '66 Newport 2 Door hardtop

    I’ve been super concerned about visibility at night ever since I got this car, so after many other distractions I’ve implemented @CBODY67’s good advice and applied white reflective tape to the side trim. In indirect light you can’t even see it, but in direct light, it reflects white. I can now...

    Hey Ross, I used Permatex clear windshield sealant. I jammed the application nozzle behind the black rubber seal, and just laid a bead down between the black rubber seal, and the glass itself, all the way around the windshield...

    '66 Newport 2 Door hardtop

    I used a couple pieces of foam-based "craft" board like you can find at Hobby Lobby. Got 2 of the biggest ones they sell, duct taped them together, then used the original as a pattern and cut the new one to match. A bit flimsy, but as long as you just put it in place and leave it, it's fine...
