General Discussions / NEW HOME: PLEASE READ IMMEDIATELY
« Last post by Zaid880 on Today at 11:41:13 AM »
Hi all,

I just now saw that the site is shutting down( I rarely visit here as I have not worked on my car much).

I created a subreddit for us on Reddit.com. I'm sure some of you have heard of it but it's a much more efficient platform that a forum like this and will not cost us anything, and it ain't going down anytime this century. Let's still use the facebook group so please spread the word on there. The link is below.

Here is the link: https://www.reddit.com/r/6162Cadillacs/

I think it would probably be smart for us to sign up new accounts with the same names as we had here (if you want) so that we know who is who.

Current moderators: If you are up for it and would like to moderate again, please send me a direct message on the new site once you sign up. I am user Zaid880 and can find me by searching u/Zaid880. I will add you as a moderator later on(depending on how many members we get). We can also chat about how we can make searching and archiving data more accessible.

I'm hoping this works for us all as a last resort. PLEASE BE PATIENT as I have never set up a new subreddit but I've been on that site for years.

Let me know if you have questions.

How are we all staying connected? Through the facebook page?

I think maybe we can move to sub on reddit.

General Discussions / Non-locking glove box cylinder replacement?
« Last post by Zaid880 on Today at 12:08:47 AM »
Has anyone replaced the glove box lock with a non-locking cylinder? Like a push button release?

Ok that makes sense. I recall now the 62 has the lights on the side.

Do the parking lights blink without the headlight/parking switch being on?

If you have a 1961 you don't have cornering lights as they did not become available until the 1962 model year.  The parking lights are below the headlights and serve as both parking and directional signal lights.  Cornering lights are located on the side of the front fenders immediately in front of the front wheel opening. If you turn on your left directional turn signal the left cornering light will activate, turn the right directional turn signal on and the right cornering light will turn on.  On the 1961 models there is a finned aluminum filler panel in the area where the cornering light is located on the 1962's.  Also, cornering lights will only activate when you have the headlight/parking light switch on.

General Discussions / Difference between cornering lamp and parking lamp?
« Last post by Zaid880 on Yesterday at 11:18:32 PM »
I'm trying to order sockets and bulbs for the front and rear. RockAuto has parts listed for "parking" and "cornering" lamps. I'm confused as to which is which.

In the front, I thought the bottom lights were cornering lights/ blinkers.

Can someone point me in the right direction please?

Thanks.

Ebay, a guy in Washington.  I have had several sets of bumpers in my ebay wish list for years. When I saw these had the aluminum inserts with them I decided it was time to buy.
