I remember in the old days, people would use an "Indian blanket" to insulate for cold weather. I don't see why it wouldn't work for hot weather too. PS: This was used by me on a full-size '63 Chevy convert.

IMO, "stated value" means nothing. If you have "agreed value" then there are fewer disagreements and easier settlements. I learned that the hard way years ago with State Farm. (td)

One reason for not doing multiple colors is that some buyers get anal about the difference in shades. I can just imagine the troubles with the various tans, blues, and reds. Not trying to be negative, but from a supplier's perspective, it may be more trouble than it's worth. Possibly just do black and white? The white would be easier to cover with touch-up paint.

Green Corvair pics are from 3 years ago. My two youngest kids. Next set is the family pushing a non-op white '64 inside the barn.

Quoteguthrie1068 ...I cut a hole in the trunk and installed the other speaker under the dash facing down. there is plenty of room there, and the area was flat enough to mount it. I plan on making a cover for the trunk area to help deflect the sound into the car and clean up the install. ... Make the cover leakproof and watertight. Seems to be where a lot of drips occur on many cars.

Here is my opinion from personal experience. In 1996, I used a brand-new JLG scissors lift when working on the jobsite. Without going into too much detail, it tipped over and catapulted me to the ground, fracturing my L4 vertebra (back), ankle, and acetabulum (hip). I suffered temporary paralysis for months and permanent neurological damage. Point is: Be careful! It doesn't ta

Tony, you will probably have better luck using a real lumberyard instead of Home Depot or other big box stores. The independent guys want your business, the material quality is way better, and the final price is very competitive. BTDT.

I use the 20v DeWalt drill that Phil and others talk about. It is the best battery drill that I've owned. The previous Black and Decker 12v I have is still in service, but the battery loses its charge quickly. That being said, the DeWalt is slightly heavier, but worth it, IMO. The adjustable torque settings are easy to use. I still have a bunch of 9v and 12v setups that I shoul

I remember driving the 1961 144ci automatic Falcon when it was only a few years old. My grandfather bought it new, and it then went to my mother and then me. I well remember how GUTLESS it was. As a teenager, I "drag-raced" a VW bug in a church parking lot. Oh, the shame of being beat EASILY by a lowly VW...

Tony, the ideal is to make a concrete pad for your post to set on, but don't pour concrete around the post, as this makes a pocket which water cannot escape from, and the posts will rot rel

Is that the 3.6L engine? They are known for timing chains stretching and needing replacement. My wife had an '07 Suzuki XL-7 which she loved, but the issue mentioned stopped us from keeping it when the check engine light came on. Traded. So be sure and REPLACE the timing chain with a good quality replacement if you've gone this far...

Two pieces of advice: 1) Take plenty of pictures of each item as you are removing them and tag what goes where and with which screws. 2) For parts, Rafee Corvair is located in Wister, OK. Highest recommendations!
