Mid Century Cadillac Discussion / Re: Fresh chrome- wax? Zaino?
« Last post by RobertM on Yesterday at 09:07:06 PM »
All set. Mothers Ultimate Brazilian Wax on everything. After looking at the products out there, Mothers Ultimate looked to be the best out there for what I wanted - pure carnauba and no cleaners or abrasives. I also added Rustoleum chrome paint on the back side of all the steel parts.

The before and after on the die cast (potmetal) parts is amazing. Couldn't be happier!

The stainless won't come back for a few more weeks.

Well ventilate the area if using Methylene Chrloride paint stripper....the fumes from it are nasty and dangerous.

I buffed mine out using the 3M Lens Polishing Kit. It worked really well. It's been 7 years and they still look great. I got the kit from Canadian Tire but imagine in the states it can be found at Pep Boys, Parts Source or O'Reily's etc.

Wanted Parts and Cars / Re: Small line between intake manifold and carb
« Last post by Ramses on Yesterday at 10:08:13 AM »

That line isn't running to the choke coil spring from what I can see.  Are you sure its not the distributor advance line?

Maybe you can see them better on this picture,

But according to "62 driver", tube from 61 or 62 are the same, so i will probably order one from '61
