Re: Repro gas tanks any good?

Yeah, good points. I know I do everything I can to use OEM. But geeeez with the repro parts that are available that are so cheap, most don't go thru the trouble.

But you know what, I have found...

Repro gas tanks any good?

I don't want to tell you what I did with the 64 SS that I had. :( But I just found that I still had the gas tank from it.

Now, I see that repro gas tanks go for only $100.00 on ebay, should I...

Re: "Basics of Basics" Color matching-Alternates

I'm sorry, I don't know what you could do, I don't do a lot of restoration stuff to know sources.

Re: "Basics of Basics" Color matching-Alternates

Yes, white and black are JUST like matching any other color. In fact, this whole "Basics" started out of a discussion on "black" not really being "black" at all. And that there are "alternates" for...

Re: Need to know the value of tinted Glass

New glass isn't going to help you at all. Listen, I don't have much of a clue being the repro glass may be real high quality and the classic car marketplace may have accepted it. If this is the case...

Re: Need to know the value of tinted Glass

I don't know about Novas, but "A" body tinted glass is worth a LOT more. Heck, twenty years ago I sold a set out of a 66 Conv, this is just the quarters, doors, and vents for about $400-500 I don't...

Re: Bondo under window. Factory??

There was NO "bondo" at all around the windows. There was a sealer that spread out a little, but no more than an inch or so away from the seam at each corner.

Re: big at-home paint thread! need help!

1. With that expectation I would avoid stripping unless there are spots where it is absolutely nessisary. Just a "sand and seal" job is what you are after.

2. Any spots that are "flaking off" will...

I think you are "basically" on the right track but you are ahead of yourself and have simplified some subjects that deserve more discussion and MUCH more than this thread can handle.

Re: fixing door gap

This may be a little late, but you NEVER install a quarter without having the door on and you adjust the two prior to welding.

1. Have you adjusted the door back?

2. If you can't move the...

Re: opinions on color

Yeah, go to a new car dealer and look at the cars side by side. Look at body lines and door gaps as well as the "size" of the car. You will see body lines that look much more pronounced or gaps that...

I don't have the rates but your typical "spring shop" like "A1" spring in Oakland California should have what you need.

Your door can be found on any 2 door post Nova from 62-65. There may be some tiny differences, I don't know for sure. But they are the same "body" and the doors would interchange. The moulding holes...
