Re: Faulkner gets a Redo

Those tips look sweet, Mark! Yeah, for activities of longer duration - like, waiting and waiting - I switch to shiraz timers. They help me forget all sense of time... :cry:

I saw pictures of 4141 going by the crowds... Pretty impressive.

Re: Faulkner gets a Redo

Not having any toys to play with, I spent some time in the garage tidying up and vacuuming. It sure is lonely in there...

(*sigh*...) And no Martha parked in the driveway. Will they be home for Christmas? Or only in my dreams?

Hit it, Frank.

I'll be home for Christmas

Re: Carlisle 2019!

Thanks for the update Gary! I think I'll go out on a limb, and sign up Martha as well as Faulkner. And don't forget that when you register, choose 59plymouth.net as your club! We stand a better chance of scoring some parking spots together.

MoPar Pro

I've had a chance this week to speak with Mike Warshaw, proprietor at MoPar Pro . He too has a 1954 Suburban! I told him I was looking for brake parts for Martha, and he beat the pricing on both Bernbaum and Jackson's. Also, Jackson's wants the cylinder and shoe cores back - and doesn't have all the...

Re: Faulkner gets a Redo

The brakes are done, they were working on the exhaust yesterday. They're working from the rear forward (because they have to make up the lead pipes), and they wanted to know the placement of the tailpipes. There's no bumper to guide them! I sent the following two pix of a fellow member's car (guess ...

Re: Martha!

As you can see from the dash pic in the initial post, there are two radio delete plates - one for the dial, and one for the buttons. They removed the upper dial delete plate and stuck a radio in there, leaving the lower. I hope they didn't cut the dash to fit it, it doesn't look like they did - I sc...

Re: Faulkner gets a Redo

Thanks Will! The upholstery and door panels aren't original, but still in very good condition - and they pay homage to the form of the original. But a red interior in a bronze car won't cut it, so I'll be painting them with vinyl paint, black with bronze accents. When the weather warms back up again...

I'll be danged! A combined auger/chisel. That's pretty spiffy! I learn a lot from hanging out with old Ace Hardware guys.

Re: Faulkner gets a Redo

I know they are, Dick - but did you ever try to punch one out?!? They won't go. I just drilled through it; and I don't own a drill that drills square holes. Maybe for Christmas. :roll:

Re: Faulkner gets a Redo

What the hell - might as well drill the bolts out now, right? IMG_8351.jpg IMG_8354.JPG IMG_8355.JPG IMG_8356.JPG Bernbaum was fresh out of the brake retainer springs, so I had to go to Kanter - it cost me as much to overnight them, as it did to buy them, but it's done; they should arrive tomorrow. ...

Re: Faulkner gets a Redo

When putting on the front brakes, the shop broke a retaining spring - so Monday morning, I'll be calling Bernbaum/Kanter/usual suspects for a set to FedEx directly to Drexel Automotive. But they put me on alert - they want to give Faulkner a driving test, and the Dick Koch patented milk crate seat (...

Re: Faulkner gets a Redo

I took a call from Drexel Automotive yesterday, they had some questions about the exhaust pieces. The two lead pipes from Waldron don't fit, but I threw in a single lead pipe I had gotten from Ed Eckerson. They said they can work with that, and wondered if I had the other side (which I didn't) - so ...

Re: Martha!

The dash glass either needs cleaning, or replacement; but, I assumed the odometer had rolled over... 00U0U_83pheFM745r_1200x900.jpg But, is it possible those are the original miles?!? The body and interior seem to be in exceptional condition. And tonight, I stumbled on these VINs from this site : VI...
