A couple of questions
« on: May 20, 2016, 04:54:27 PM »
Seems like I'm always asking for help, maybe someday I can help some others.

Question 1) will 1960 Eldorado Biarritz/Seville fender skirts fit a 1959 Eldorado? They do have different part numbers, but that often is for location of trim mounting holes. (315-1569/68 for the '59, and 351-1889/88 for the '60). Any insight would be helpful.

Question 2) would anyone who has a '59 or '60 B Biarritz or Seville convertible be willing to take some photos of the interior soft top mechanism with the top up? I'm trying to re-assemble mine and I don't have and photos to guide me. I understand about 80% of it, but still would like some confirmation before I 'stake' the new pins in place.
 
many thanks for your help.  Whit    whitmcfarlin@msn.com

Whit     

I have a few photos from a 60 Biarritz I can email you.

My 60 has the same top but it's going to be raining a lot tomorrow.

I can take some new ones but look for an email tonight.

Whit:

The '59 and '60 skirts are different; it's not just the trim.
