I stripped the old top of the car and when I removed the chrome belt molding from around the top well, I discovered that the clips that hold the belt molding were gone. Only 3 of the 6 needed were in...

Re: Best Convertible Top?

I got the top from Kee and the workmanship is the best I've seen. I removed the old top and now need the belt line molding clips that go on the side of the body. There are two types, one has 4 legs...

Re: Timing puzzle

Is the point gap changing while it's running. Are the points locked down tight?

Re: LeBaron Top Boot Fitment

I don't know for sure, but the roadster is a 3-bow top and the phaeton is a 4-bow top. I think you should be looking for a phaeton boot...

Re: Rhinebeck,n.y.

I'm not sure what a short nose armature looks like... I have a few of those 'odds and ends' myself.

Re: Best Convertible Top?

I received a call from Kee about three weeks ago, or there abouts, and they needed more time. They are primarily a manufacturer and not a retailer. Seems a very large order from a very good customer...

Re: Working to locate some parts.

The temp sensor in my 54 (239 y-block) is the two blade type, but the wire connects to only one blade. Not sure if it is correct, but the gauge seems to work fine...

Re: Install disconnect between 1 and 2, or 3 and 4?

Not to be argumentative, but how do you maintain a potential to the chassis? Once the flow of electrons is stopped by an open circuit, there is no longer a potential... Electrically, there is no...

Re: Trouble replacing grease fittings - suggestions?

Is it possible that when you used the hammer and chisel the old fitting was cut? Maybe there is a piece of the old fitting still in the hole... When I converted mine, I grabbed the old fitting with a...

Re: 54 Ignition Switch Installation

I've come to the conclusion that my problem lies with the backlight housing. I might try to find a way to keep that sucker in place by itself and then, once that is accomplished, insert the switch. I...

Re: 54 Ignition Switch Installation

That description is not the same as a 54. On mine, the backlight housing is for the ignition switch alone. The emergency brake handle is in the way, as is the wiper control. If there was a way to...

After talking with two or three different shops, I felt most comfortable with Kee. I just ordered top, curtain, and boot from them. I'll try to document the job with photos and report back. Might be...
