I agree Jason, these guys have to make a living, but it sure makes it harder for us guys that do this on a shoe-string budget. What we don't realize is that (not to mention, the individual shop owner philosophies) some of these shops have a high overhead and some don't.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
