You can make your own key.

The parts book has how you take cylinder out. The one in the car not a problem

The other need to make a dummy key. Or take to a locksmith.

A friend I went to school with her brother works for a large auto glass company. He looked and made calls.. Nope on windshields..

They have flat glass for Packard going back to the forties .. Maybe 30s..

Forgot to get who he works for.. He is in charge of inventory..

Will get company..

Let me know what you need.. I'll ask.

I would go hydrogen .. My dad always talked about a single cell for his 12.

Pack Don. I brought up motor v engine few years ago.

Even wrote Leno about it. He caught himself sometimes. Now he will still refers to an engine as a motor.

This ev is b.s. for low income. Look at the cost of batteries...

Then what pay hazard fee to get rid of them .
.
The big push for solar. You only get 20 percent use out of them.. And that's high end panels..

Environmentalists. Have just f.d up this country.

Lacquer.. It evaporates.. It's gone.. It's not in the atmosphere.. The smell is not. Hazardous. Off gazing . it's evaporating..

Can't use anything on flat side. Unless it way below.

Had to remove the plate.

I'll put 3 bolts in thinking #8. For any flexing . but don't think it will that epoxy is tough.

Hey h.

# 80A. I'll send you one let you check it out. It's pretty stiff on the thick part.

The the round part you can squeeze . it's not as hard as original.

Used it all up. So I'll get another and get black color. Was seeing how this went. Pretty easy. 1oz of each part. But need to mix.

I didn't mix one long enough. Has not cured.

So. Pot life is 10 minutes. So I mix for 5 minutes. That seems to work.

Smooth on is way cheaper than flexane.

I have six useable. My last one is a little short. Think I made 7 or 8 55 bushings out of it.

I did waste a lot figuring out mix.

Putting this here.

This is smooth on. Polyurethane. So will see how these hold compared to flexane.
