General Mopar Discussions / Miss Belvedere vs. Stitcherbob & Polaraco
« on: January 27, 2008, 10:31:27 AM »
I can tell you one thing....the Ultra One shtuff really works! I have test soaked some really rusty parts in a gallon of it and it's remarkable.....the rust floats off and doesn't leave etching  on the good metal. I soaked a hood latch for a 1962 Chrysler that was dark brown with surface rust, and after an overnight bath it is now going on ebay (it could almost pass for NOS!) because it looks like new. It didn't affect the white cadmium plating on the stamped base plate and it didn't even remove the factory paint from the backside that got on it when it was bolted down!

Most kids don't appreciate these old monsters.  They are used to these cookie cutter cars.
 






Lets hope there's also several meanings for "Potatoe" as well......

I would paint it black.....clear tends to trap moisture underneath (during spraying) and then rust blooms, and I can't remember ever seeing one in cast finish....

All I can say is that after meeting Dwight and seeing what he has accomplished so far, Miss Belvedere is good hands....

Oh yeah, another thang Moe....if'n the column is from one of those dusty places like AZ or SD, wash the column with soapy water, rinse with a bucket of HOT water, and blast it with compressed air until most of the water is out. Then spray with the PB Blaster to drive out the rest of the moisture. The HOT water dries faster than the cold from a hose (I set up a hot water outlet for my garden hose....one of the best things I ever did!) and with this, all of the dust and grit will be flushed away.

Why do you think it needs "going through" Moe? Unless the top bearing is shot or the tilt action doesn't work, they usually are fine.... the top bearing goes when people use the wheel to hoist themselves into the car, and the only other thing could be a sloppy shifter arm.

I use the FSM and do them for myself....just don't lose the small parts!

For the price of shipping, I can send ya a column from a 68 Imperial that I don't need anymore....no wheel on it and the shift arm is destroyed so it's only good for certain parts....

My Great grandfather ran trains across this bridge many times....I found it by accident one day trying to find a McDonald's for lunch while at a resto shop up there. It just appeared out of nowhere! I climbed up a bank and took some of the white ballast the Lackawanna was famous for, and some shale that the whole mountain was created from.
