Itís an enclosed trailer. Iíve used U Hauls with the front wheel straps in the past. I was considering on using the lower A arm and also about attaching a D Ring to the frame just in front of the stabilization arm.

I need to trailer my '55 Caribbean and I'm trying to figure out where the best place is for the front end to use straps. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated and a picture would be worth a thousand words.

It obviously was one of those greenhouses full of ficus trees.

Small dust like particles of asbestos is what one should be concerned about. If you decide to remove the material yourself,I would recommend that you keep everything moist so that dust is not present. Bagging it all up and disposing in the trash all bagged up should be acceptable. Inhaling fine asbestos dust is the health concern.

We have Diamond Backs on our '55 Caribbean. Completely happy with their performance.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I have several friends that have tried to use Cokers on their car. One person got a set installed that was so out of round that it could not be shaved into rounds. To make make matters worse they would replace them.

Sounds Great

My radio worked before I made the update. Afterwards, there is no doubt that AM & FM reception was much better.

Congratulations

I had the Tech-Retro AM/FM - Blue Tooth installed in the Wonder Bar radio in our '55 Caribbean. The face plate is ~2 1/4" high, knobs 7 5/8" on center

Completely happy with the performance. The radio doesn't need to be a Wonder Bar. Having a Wonder Bar gives the owner the added option of having a push button station finder.

On a Judge Judy note, CBS and the Judge did not renew their contract. So 2020 will be probably the last of new episodes with 2021 being reruns.

But not to worry as Judge Judy library for a reported $95 million, with an end date of 2020-2021. Nice to know she won't be going hungry (LOL).

Call TCP Global in San Diego (858-909-2110 or support@tcpglobal.com). They have over 110,000 color chips in their library. If he is still there, you want to talk to "Chips". Also, contact The Nethercutt Collection(818) 364-6464 or info@nethercuttcollection.org. You will want to talk to the person in the library as they may have a color brochure.

We painted our 1932 a non-standard Packard color for that year. However, since you could order a Packard from the factory in primer so it could be painted the color of the owner's choice it is acceptable as long as that color was available for that year.
