REPRODUCTION OF OTHER PARTS
If the piston deal works
out I may try this with other hard to get early "A" body parts.
I need (for example) rear
quarter panels or patch panels, upper tail light lenses, the standard gas cap,
the correct windshield washer reservoir and pump, some of the extended length
lug nuts that match my wheel covers, and a number of other parts.
Ok, Dave Layson of
Laysons Restorationshas most of
the above stuff in development or for sale now. As of this date (11/28/2000),
I am still working on the piston deal.
Kanter Automotive has a CAST reproduction of the commando
piston for $55.00 each. While there may be some discussion as to wheather a
casting is correct (and they are heavy), that price aint bad compared to $40.00
each for the 8:1 MOPAR casting.
I've added another item
to my development list. I've noticed that its getting hard to get good shocks
for A body Chryslers (for those of us who like to carve corners anyway), at the
same time I've found a shock that I realy like in the adjustable Spax shock from
the UK. We'll see where this one leads...
