Cool

Brandon are these the chrome door plates that are attached to the door panels?Another way of describing them would be when you have your door open and look at the end are they chrome? I looked at my 60 and although they are attached, look very similar.

Hey Guys,
Are they chrome or stainless? If they are stainless they may be cleaned up and polished! It chrome I would send them off and have them re-chromed!!!

They are the cap pieces that go at the top edges of the 1960 door panels. I've tried a few places and haven't been able to track them down! My blue bird didn't have them when I got it, and the red and white bird don't have them either. I'll try Thunderbird Headquarters, and Larry's, but I'm not going to hold my breath! I found one set for my blue bird through Tbirds by Nick, but they weren't in the best of shape.

Brandon as Richard stated getting them chromed should not be an issue provided the integrity is intact. Failing that and other parts suppliers John Draxler at Thunderbird Ranch parted out a lot of birds so he might have some.

Brandon, try Eddie.. He is parting out a '60 Tbird and probably has those pieces. I just part a part from him and others have also. Here is his email address... EddieB1222@aol.com

Hey, I had already tried Eddie. I bought a whole bunch of stuff from him! Lots of upgrades and at really really good prices too! Can't beat that! Thanks though. I'll find some sooner or later!

Default Wanted: Left (Drivers Side) Exhaust Manifold

My left (drivers side) exhaust manifold is cracked on my '59 Tbird. It had been welded in the past, but that welding job broke. I am looking for a used, seasoned one, rather than a new, unseasoned one. If anyone has one that is not cracked, or warped, but in good condition please PM me or email me ASAP. I want to get the cracked one out and the replacement while she is in the shop getting some warranty work done, and before she goes to the paint shop.
