I always say "4th of July" ... no year included.She's looking sweeeetttt !!! This inspires me to get my butt moving on my project. Everyone asks me when I'm going to get mine done and I've given up on giving a timeline so I just say before I die.
I have, but I haven't gotten it out of the box yet...so no real update for you on that piece.Dan, did you ever receive the carpet?
The new glass in the rest of the car is smoked, so the vent windows wouldn't matchCan you swap the glass from your old frame ?
FYI, I had my ACC installed about a month ago. I ordered mine through my interior guy and he installed it while doing the headliner. He ordered a chevelle front carpet uncut on the sides. He steamed out most of the preformed tunnel shape and added jute padding to alter the shape of my somewhat square looking tunnel into a more rounded version. He had plenty of material on the sides.Dan, did you ever receive the carpet?
That sucks, were the frames powder coated?Started a project finally this weekend that I have not wanted to tackle. And almost immediately I knew why.
Vent window rebuilding. Tried to get the spring and washers off the pivot stud, snapped the stud clean off at the nut. Dammit!
64/65 vent window frames are hard to find, doesn't look like they are reproduced.
So now I am trying to figure out next steps. I picked up a 66/67 set today, but the glass is different, frame shape is the same, but glass has the hole through it, not just angled like the 64/65. So if I use that frame I will need to get new glass, but that is a possibility.
Other option is trying to weld a new stud on the old broken rusty one.
Any ideas, I am all ears.
That is another issue, I really should have them stripped of the chrome and then paint them, but I want to make sure I have all the parts together before doing that. Right now, I have just scuffed them up and self-etched them first before painting. Don't know if that will last long.That sucks, were the frames powder coated?
