General Tech / After 4 Years it's Finished!!!
« on: July 18, 2010, 07:58:42 AM »
The hubcaps make all the difference.


The Blower Motor will not blow above Low when the Heater or Defroster is selected. Max Cool and Fr Cool both blow at all speeds. I know it is not the Blower Motor Switch because if it was faulty the speeds wouldn't vary regardless of what was selected. I swapped out the Blower Motor Resistor today with a known working unit and the problem still exists. I installed a new A/C and Heater Switch before I restored the car and it worked fine. Does anybody have an idea what it could be?

General Tech / Hubcap Restoration
« on: June 14, 2010, 05:46:27 PM »
It's on to the final step of the restoration of my 1965 Chrysler 300 Convertible...the hubcaps.  I purchased the paint today which should arrive later this week.  For the chrome-like portions of the medallion I will be using a product from Spaz Stix called Mirror Chrome.  This product is used in the R/C car hobby to emulate chrome on R/C Car bodies.  It is designed to be applied from the back so I think (fingers crossed) it will produce a finish which should be very close to the factory finish.
This is what I have to start with.  All 4 are about in the same condition.  The disks are in good shape; all I need to do is re-do the black stripes.  The medallions are a mess but a free from cracks.  I'll post pics as I progress. 


Tech- - ELECTRICAL / Weird Alternator Gremlin - 1965 Chrysler 300
« on: June 12, 2010, 02:47:07 PM »
To preface: brand new alternator, battery and regulator.  The alternator has been working intermittenly  .  I took the alternator to the parts store to be tested and it passed.  I disconnected the top harness at the bulkhead (not certain if it's the engine to forward lamp harness) and disconnected the Fusible Link at the bulkhead (other leads run to the starter relay and horn relay).  I reconnected the Fusible Link and harness to the bulkhead and installed the alternator.  I fired her up and the alternator is now working.  My question is: what would cause the alternator to not charge and what does the Fusible Link have to do with it?  Here is a picture of the Fusuble Link and bulkhead area:

General Tech / Top Boot Installed!
« on: June 03, 2010, 05:28:15 PM »
I installed the top boot today. I was a little apprehensive becasue I had to install each snap fastener one at a time. I was going to have a shop do it but I decided to do it myself. I think it came out pretty good.

General Tech / I got a Door Panel Installed!
« on: April 24, 2010, 11:36:00 AM »
I got the passenger's side window assembly installed and got the door panel installed as well.  I should be able to tackle the driver's side next week.  It's getting closer!

Does anyone have plate frames from this dealer they would be willing to part with?

General Tech / Two different sized wheels
« on: January 10, 2010, 10:30:42 AM »
I've got a 1965 Chrysler 300 Convertible, 383, Factory Air. I took my wheels down to the tire shop to have the tires dismounted so I can blast and paint the wheels. It turns out I've got two different size wheels. My car was all original before I restored it and I have no reason to doubt all four wheels to be factory originals. I've got (2) 14x6.5 and (2) 14x5.5. Is this normal? What do you guys think? The FSM lists both sizes but there is no listing for two different sized wheels on the same car.

Has anyone successfully removed the bezels from the Power Window Switches from a '65 Chrysler for rechroming?

General Tech / Rear Seat Belt Mounting Locations - 1965 Chrysler
« on: November 20, 2009, 02:49:26 PM »
I was wondering if anyone could help me out.  I've got a '65 300 'vert which did not come with rear belts but I was wanting to add them.  I've got a set of factory belts and hardware but I'm not sure where to drill.  There is a set of two round dimples on the passenger's side and driver's side floor board just below the seat beack.  There is also a single dimple on the inner fender well on both the passenger's and driver's side.  Which dimples do I drill out for the mounting hardware?  If would be great if someone had pics.

Here are some before and after shots of my restoration.  I estimate the restoration will be complete by January.  All that's really left to do is install the glass and power window regulators (vents too), button up the interior and install 15" Magnum 500's.  I took the car all the way down to a rolling shell and restored/replaced virtually everything.  This car is hard to find parts for.  Luckily, it was 99% complete to start.
