Re: Bonnet Question

So, if you have both the "snail" springs and the prop, and your hood does not stay up w/o the prop... is there a fix? Thanks.

Re: Bonnet Question

Ed, Chris, yes I have these on the hinges on my PF coupe and have a hood prop too. I think all cars have both and the prop is added insurance. I am told that the springs should hold up the hood wide open.

Bonnet Question

There is a pair of spiral helper springs at the hinges. Are these supposed to hold up the bonnet? I don't think mine are working that well. Thanks.

Re: Original carpet binding and heel toe mat for 1960-1963 Ferrari

Chris, speaking from recent experience, I'd leave the binding to your upholsterer. Apparently, there is vinyl and then there is vinyl. I bought spools of binding from HVL and my upholsterer rejected them, and he showed me why he refused to use it. He found vinyl in the same color and then when he sh...

Re: Fuel line clamps on 330 GTC

Yup, 9 bucks an inch, is it? Then you have the fittings and the ferrules... you'd better take out a home equity. Then, of course, the required tightening up of the sphincter as you are putting it together so you won't F it up.... :lol:

Steve, your post title says 330GTC, but it sounds like you might be working on a vintage Mustang. Fuel line hose clamps???

Re: Original carpet binding and heel toe mat for 1960-1963 Ferrari

Hi Chris. If I make a suggestion, it would be worth your while to look into HVL's offerings before you commit to purchasing the material. In my experience, their material comes closest to the original.

Re: window fuzzy/wipers installation

Ed, I would use 3M Weatherstrip Adhesive. It comes in black and yellowish. It dries fast and holds well.

Re: Voxson radio nuts needed

Tom, once you get past M8, odd number metric fasteners are uncommon. The M10 nut is typically 17mm ATF.

Re: Voxson radio nuts needed

Hi Tom, it's called a "panel nut" in case no one here come thru for you. You may also check with shops that service vintage car radios.

Re: Finish of External water pipes on a 250 GTE?

I have had a handshake with every little part of that little f##ker and I am still learning something new about it. This hoop was in the box of parts when I got my car about 20 years ago and I had no idea where it went until tonight. It looked like it belonged to the car so I kept it. Thanks for men...

Re: Brake problem in my GTC

Hi Steve, if Grover could talk he would say that your problem is likely caused by a part that is supposed to retract when pedal is let up. But this part is not retracting. I suspect your car has a booster for the front brakes (mounts on the front part of the chassis behind the radiator). Does it? If...
