  1. Mario - quick question about your 72 Lemans Sport. Which front end is on your car? Do you have the GTO Endura front end or the standard Lemans front end. It makes a difference on the core support. Also what shape is your current core support? Rusted? Damaged? And where? Standard Lemans front end GTO Endura Front End
  2. Since you are going to weld and repair the wheel with epoxy, you will also be sanding the snot out of the whole wheel to take down the epoxy - the sanding will add much needed mechanical adhesion. So I might try to find a plastic adhesion promoter if you are out of any sort self-etching primer. Then I would apply 2-4 coats of primer in the hopes to build it up enough to adequately fill and sand it - I know you said you are running low on supplies. Then paint away.
  3. It could work - for $12 plus shipping and handling it might be worth a try. Original Parts Group has a "universal kit" that is suppose to work with the Catalina as well - for $26 + S&H. They have both in 1/2" and 3/8" kits. Your call. https://www.opgi.com/moldings/hardware/universal-molding-fastener-kits6/clip-molding-universal-38-set-of-10-ch2096.html https://www.opgi.com/catalina/1964/fasteners-hardware?facet=|CAT2ND%3aECS82
  4. That's always a fun job. The human hand is not meant for those tiny spaces.
  5. I think we will see a lot of models by a lot of automakers delayed because of the coronavirus.
  6. Awesome! So what are you going to do next? Sell it as is and let the new owner clean it up? Fix it up and ask for a few more bucks?
  7. Anyone have a moist towelette for kiwi here !?!?! Kitter liter - aisle one!
  8. I didn't...I JUSTA didn't wanna' blow JUSTA's mind any more than I had to. We also have Jonah Hex! 😁
  9. I agree with SPRINT6. I've not tried it either, however I've read about. I know Jay Leno is a huge fan of this technique as well for many of his cars as well.
  10. Sorry JUSTA. Hex is short for hexadecimal or base-16 numbers. Us computer-types understand binary and how converting to different number systems works. So technically speaking 07EA is a hexadecimal number. We are use to base-10 numbers. All numbers go to 0-9, then 10-19 and so on. Each significant digit or decimal point is a power of the base - 10. 100, 1000, .1, .01 Hex works the same way except it goes from 0 to 15, so we represent the numbers as single characters, as 0-9 and then 10-15 as A-F. So 0-F. So 10 in hex = 16 in decimal. Anyway - most folks need not worry - us computer geeks understand it.
  11. Most OEM stainless window trim can be removed with what I call a J-hook tool. You can probably fab on yourself out of flat sheet metal or perhaps a mate of yours has one. Here is what a commercial one looks like. Basically you slide it along to release the clips underneath the trim carefully. As for the steering wheel. I might be inclined to weld it up straight, use epoxy to repair all the gaps and then sand, primer, paint it a solid complimentary interior color and skip saving the clear acrylic for now. Try to get a replacement wheel from the states when the madness calms down and you have the cash. Like you, I prefer the OEM look versus an aftermarket wheel.
  12. I missed the first two years, been in every one since. I have the dated sign to prove it too. Yeah, I know what you mean. In 2010 I explained to a bunch of guys that were pouring water into the street next to our car club that what they were doing was illegal. They looked at me with deer in the headlight look. I said what you are doing is technically called introducing a foreign substance to the roadway. If God didn't put it there, it's illegal. Secondly by encouraging a burn out one of three things can happen. One - the car can go forward and perhaps hit the car in front of him. Second - the car can go to the right and hit the car to his right. Third - the car can go to the left and hit you, me, and our friends and our cars and perhaps get someone killed. All these are undesirable results. So I'd advise you to stop doing it. I got the "oh I didn't think about that!" response. Clearly....but they stopped which is what I wanted.
  13. Okay - I was trying to make the connection between the data stream and your conclusion. Thanks big guy.
  14. Another Dream Cruiser????? Say it aint' so!
