  1. Welcome aboard. Can't beat a '66 Turquoise Pontiac Looks like 8-Lug Rims in the 1st pic but seem to have a unique paint scheme in the 2nd making it look more like a hub cap? Anyhow looks good and love the skirts! Cheers
  2. WELCOME ABOARD, Like the '59 and the nod to NASCAR Vibe ! 😎 Cheers

  4. Yes there were reported corrosion issues with some between the Aluminum and cast insert. Any good old school brake shop should be able to turn them as long as they are still within spec. Yes having them RE-Lined can be pricey but once done correctly and maintained they are worth it if your wanting to maintain the OE wheels. IMO your going to be spending some good coin which ever way you decide to go, weather its restoring what you have or buying all the needed parts to switch back to standard drums. https://www.jgrelining.com/services https://www.hemmings.com/magazine/hmn/2006/05/Eight-is-Enough/1281932.html http://www.pontiacparadise.com/parts-id/8-lug-wheels.php
  5. Bud, Sorry I read right past the "Bonneville" portion, The link I posted refers to A-Body. 99% of the B-Body jacks I've ever came across/seen were BLACK and had rectangular bases. Many had additional large bumper hooks not just the slot hook, but I can't help on what years with that detail.
  6. IIRC the rear is a direct swap but the fronts are a complete assembly. Thus you don't have to change the spindle but will need a full standard drum assembly to replace the 8-lug wheel. I have to say you are the first person I can recall that does like the 8-lug 😲 but it's all good! 👍 Cheers.
  7. Heres a bit more info on '66 jacks; https://forums.maxperformanceinc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=827154
  8. IMO you can't go wrong with the DC Hi-Pro wheel paints. I did the R1's on my '66 years ago and the Argent Sliver has held up greatly. Cheers
  9. Common issues on Pontiac V8 water pump to Manifold "O" ring gasket is likely failing. You may have to reset with intake with new gaskets along with the "O" washer gasket to successfully eliminate this condition.
  10. Lets not forget the certain group of Pontaics that were built sans Undercoating, Seam Sealer, Steel Fenders and lots of other items to shed weight
  11. RED OXIDE PRIMER is more likely what they may have been referring too. If you oped out of undercoating you would see all this primer on the tubs, pans and frame rails of some of the later cars.
  12. OUTSTANDING! Now that's how to deal with the winter blues
  13. PRESTON, Welcome aboard, If I'm understanding your question is referring to mount #4, but I'm not sure about the PLUG you mention? If it is #4 and you can't access it from under car you may need to carefully cut floor above the mount so it can be cut out/off. If you post a picture of the mount area we may be able to better assist you. Cheers
