    Awesome article!! You are really good at what you do. A true Craftsman.
     
  6. What did you use for the portion of the hinge that attaches to the dash lip? Thanks
     
  7. If I can find some blank Chrysler rocker covers, I'd like to have IMPERIAL stamped in them. I'll start looking around.

    Rich:
    I fabbed a piece of 3/16" round stock to mimic the original hinge since
    a friend wants the original. I had cut the back out because the door
    was to heavy for the magnetic catch.

  11. Are they yours and are they for sale?

    BTW, if I hadn't done three tech threads myself, I would have voted for this one!

    I found another pic that I added to post#56 that shows the simple die
    I used to stamp the side of the battery box, just wanted to complete that
    section of the post. (sorry for the double pics, computer challenged!)

  17. This was my pick for Tech Week because I think it is something that we wouldn't normally think of and it's thinking outside the box. HRP

  19. Thanks; three little hinge pivots, good idea; I was trying to figure out a way to make one wide pivot like the stocker.

    Rich, The two outside pivots are actually spread out to the corners to keep the
    glove box door from moving side to side. I just threw those on for the pic.
    Take care, Rich

    Sorry, I meant the lines cross over to tie in to the stat housing. This
    is 58 trk blk, no outlets on the heads for stock type crossover.
