After looking at reproduction and original I have with broken tabs think mould for repro may have had the plastic insert left in. Not a complaint as pretty sure a little file work or dremel tool work could fix any problems

The slot for light lens will need a little work with file for plastic piece to fit. The plastic part is easy to remove from old bezel with small screwdriver.

The new bezel arrived in the mail this afternoon. Looks fine and it fits the spare switch Randy had. Now I can be sure that the one currently on Caribbean will not be a problem as I have a spare. Good job White Glove Collection

Really look good as new. Only people who have done restoration will know the work and time spent on on such small part of project.Details separate the excellent work from just good enough

We are up to 19 just had dog out she acted as if it was 60 running and wanting to play ball. I also thought it felt a lot nicer the wind is not blowing and sun is out. Assume the worst is over for us in South hills of Pittsburgh. The good is being retired I do not have to go outside to go to work

There are straight places in western Pa just takes a little time to find them. Down hill don't count. Back in the day all car guys knew where they were and used them for non legal uses. Statute of limitation apply in my case

+The Olds or time frame for GM antennas is late 70 to 85 on full size cars .. The paint on engine is from Bill Hirsh 54 & 56 Packard. These pics are after rebuild and with the heat shield for intake manifold

Got question about progress on Randy's Caribbean . Will give a update currently working on power antennas sent out masts to be chromed missing one section on return. Also had to replace the thru bolts on one motor which is bigger job than I figured as the brush holder is on drive end of motor. Had to replace the nylon cord that drives the masts up and down. I used 1/8 weed wacker cord I have used it before on Olds power antennas with good results. The Olds antennas go up and down when ignition is turned on and off which is hard on the units. Packard will not be used that much. On my Clipper I seldom move them as if you use them not fully extended or retracted they stop at different heights which I don't care for that look.
Did locate a pair of chrome valve cover which I did not have. Little details cause me problems which always seem to take longer than I figure or plan.
