UPHOLSERY HOW TOO's / Baked Vinyl
« on: May 27, 2011, 06:03:28 PM »
Bob; the top of my back passenger seat, in  my 66' Newport is heat cooked. No cracks or splits but "dried out" would be the best description. Any suggestions for preserving it? Thanks, John.

General Tech- - BRAKES / Power Booster on 66' T&C
« on: August 05, 2010, 05:51:26 PM »
Hi guys; I'm knee deep in the middle of converting my Budd discs to 73 spindles rotors etc. I was lookin at an earlier thread where C-Barge talks about Boosters. Question, is the Midland- Ross booster used on the Budd system still available? My 66'T&C had Budds & cruise control, which makes for a tight fit. Secondly is that M-R booster a dual diaphragm? Most of the single diaphragm Boosters I can find are only rated for drum brakes. Oddly enough thats what was on the car (single diaphragm) when I bought it, and the owner said the brakes performed poorly. thanks, John.

Hi Fellas; Has anybody tried using the later dual reservoir M. cyl & dual diaphram booster with a existing  Budd caliper & rotor set-up? The Budd parts are all but obselete now!
 I would appreciate the input, John
