Battery hold down issue?

Posted November 20th, 2014 at 07:58 PM by Jim Petropulos

Todays batteries no longer have a lip on the end to hold the battery in place on the battery tray with the supplied clamp.
How has anyone else figured a way to clamp it down so it doesn't fall off the tray going over a bump , etc??
I put a piece of rubber hose between the battery and the tray clamp to hold it. It works but this looks "hokey" !
It would certainly lose points in any kind of competition event...

A modern radio for a '64?

Posted February 2nd, 2010 at 12:22 AM by Jim Petropulos

Need some advice.......I've been thinking of getting a modern AM-FM radio, for my '64. I've heard I would have to cut the dash to fit one in the original location.
I don't think that's a good idea if it means cutting the actual metal dash as well as the radio's plastic face plate ????
If it is just the plastic face plate that needs cut I don't mind doing that. Mine has a crack in it anyway.
I'd like to put a stock looking radio in the dash rather then a hidden one located somewhere...
