    You can use paint thinner on them, it will not hurt the plastic and if you can soak them in the paint thinner for a few so the glue will absorb the thinner then the glue will come off pretty easy.

    Russ,
    I can't really tease much about chevy or olds, I own a 70 Chevelle convertible that will end up being a SS454 automatic clone, and also own a 70 442 convertible.

    I guess I can bust on pontiacs, but I really like the early goats.

    Roger,
    You can also use prep-sol or mineral spirits to take off the glue, it will not hurt plastic.

    Yep, still in school. My undergrad took me 6 years (for 2 separate degrees). As for my MA, I only have my thesis left, and I'm lagging behind. Add a computer crash and having to recreate everything.... hopefully I'll be done this summer.

    As far as 71 cars not getting a carpeted kick panel, you're wrong as my 71 Riviera has carpeted kick panels :)

    I believe Duane is referring to Skylark/GS cars in '71,'72 (A-bodies).........

    My 68 has carpeted panels. Is that correct for the year? I believe it was a late year production.

    Yes,
    I was referring to A-bodies, I have no idea what years the rivs/big cars had kick panel carpets. I know the most about A-bodies as those are the cars I used to make interiors for.

    Dan,
    Does your 68 car have a standard or deluxe interior?

    When I purshased my 68 I didn't have th carpet on the kick panel , but there was some (huge) evidence that It used to have something out there :Brow:

    There was a lot of old staples on both of them "tacked" from the inside if i'm correct .

    As far as I know I do have the deluxe interior , bucket seat , console , sail panel light , glovebox light , etc .. what does the "deluxe" include beside this ?

    My 73 Electra Limited has very moldy carpet on the kick panels and all 4 doors.


    Why is it called a kick panel anyways? Are you really going to kick them? :cool:

    I might be a little late but my 70 Skylark Custom Convertible with AC has carpet on the kickpanels as well as a 5 inch strip on the bottom of the door panels.
