UPHOLSERY HOW TOO's / Which carpet to use?
« on: September 09, 2012, 03:42:58 PM »
I have some experience doing carpets in the cars.  I used Trimparts carpet on two of the cars. I was happy with one set, not thrilled with the other.  Trimparts actually lists '68 Newport and '68 New Yorker as different carpet. Isn't it the same?
I used ACC carpet on the convertible, and it's faded, but I guess that isn't a shock on a convertible witha black interior.
I'd love to know what's has worked for all of you and more specifically, Sticherbob.

General Mopar Discussions / A poll for my '68 Chrysler friends
« on: July 16, 2011, 05:04:19 AM »
I received pricing back a while ago on having my '68 Chrysler "Make Your Move" gold/black front advertising license plates reproduced. They are going to be in the $20-$25 each range, depending on how many interested parties I can get for them. If I can get orders for 125 or more the price would fall to $15 each. 
So what do you think?

General Mopar Discussions / How rare are sunroof '74-'78 C's?

Just curious how rare a '76 Newport Custom 4 dr. HT w/ a sunroof and a '77 New Yorker similarly equipped would be?


General BS and Laughs / Ok, now Where I have been!
« on: August 24, 2008, 02:56:48 AM »
Ladies and Gentlemen:
First  I want to apologize for not having been on more lately. I have been up to my neck with work, school, and other issues that have prevented me from spending more time here.
1. Work-it's busy as hell (a great thing, not complaining!) but it's stretching me to 12+ hour days alsmot 6 days a week. 
2. I'm back in school after a 13 year hiatus-it's only one class (BIOLOGY!) but at least I'm back after it.  Great thing is if I get a B or better work pays for it.
3. Now the primary reason for my absence over the last several months-my wife and I are divorcing she's moving out of the area. I've been dealing with this since February, even before.  This is all a plus, my friends, trust me, and we are parting as great friends. Also on the plus side:
A.) I feel great about the split, it should have happened a long time ago
B.) Cars are safe, not in jeapordy, still mine and always will be
C.) I am keeping the house (and the 3 car garage!) and only had to buy her out. Hey. what's 50K among friends? LOL
I don't usually do this type of broadcasting, but in light of my flippant behavior at Carlisle and not getting back to people, I felt it necessary to explain myself.
The only down side is now I REALLY have to lose 20 pounds if I ever expect to date again!
Thanks for listening, I appreciate it.

UPHOLSERY HOW TOO's / '68 New Yorker seat cleaning
« on: June 30, 2008, 05:45:08 PM »
Hey Bob,
The original seat in my '68 New Yorker needs a good cleaning.  The upholstery is dark blue, not vinyl but the parachute like material. It's the standard New Yorker bench for '68 (and very comfy).
What can I clean it with? I'd like to get it as close to new as possible without replacing it as there's not a tear in it. 
Thanks in advance! Maybe this gives me an excuse to come visit!

Most of you know that my mini vacation every year is to Carlisle, PA to attend the big show in July.  With my usual foresight, I booked one extra room.  Since my friend Bob's wife is not attending, his room is surplus as well in addition to the room I have.  These are in the closest hotel to the show grounds.  Email me at ASAP if you're interested.  After tomorrow, they'll get posted on Moparts.

I am wondering what the factory routing for heater hoses in a '70 Fury w/bb and no a/c. 
Anyone have a pic? I'd sure like to know for my 'vert and get the right bracket if I need one.

General Tech / A/C stuff-quick ?'s
« on: January 25, 2008, 03:57:46 PM »
The A/C compressor on the Newport Custom is seized.  Also, the bearing in the a/c clutch is starting to make noise so that needs attention also.  I want to replace both the clutch and the compressor but I don't want to charge the a/c compressor yet until I get a PHD in Autotempology. 
Can I replace both components and not connect the wire so it doesn't turn on?  As long as the clutch doesn't engage it should be OK discharged, correct?
Any help appreciated.

I'll make an attempt to post some pics here on my ongoing process of painting the engine compartment and replacing the 440 in my '70 Fury 'vert. 
Wanna post some pics for me Lea?
I am replacing the harness with one from my parts car, painting the engine compartment, and converting it back to manifold style exhaust as well as replacing the 440. 
The interior is already done, but I'll post some pics on that too.  I installed the console and Nigel at National Moparts had the buckets. I bought them from him almost 6 years ago and had them redone.  That was well worth it IMO.
I hope to have it done by late Spring and have it ready for a trip to Carlisle.  I may place it for sale in the corral to see what kind of interest it garners. 
It's a GT clone BTW.
