Mich,
Everything looks so incredibly sanitary as always.. You can literally eat off it. I like the +12 volt covered terminal, Where did you acquire that from?
Oh, and I want to thank you for helping out my friend Vince with the parts. He's forever grateful to you. He said you guys had a nice long conversation on the phone the other day. He had nothing but praise for you. :friday:(y);)

Thanks for the kind words Jack. The 12 volt terminal is actually a GM part that I picked up at SK speed here on LI. Now it looks like they sell them in a 3 pk but Im sure you can find them online. https://www.skspeed.com/wre799-3-pack-delphi-gm-12078199-battery-junc-block-battery-10mmx1-5-stud/

As far as helping Vince, I was just glad I could finally get out there to get the fillers. Im sure he told you what it took to get them. Stupid trailer hitch made it so much harder. LOL
I hope hes happy when he opens the box.

Mich,
Thank for for the link to S&K for the junction block. They're a pretty neat part.

I'm sure he'll be pleased with the fillers. He did fill me in on what you encountered trying to get them off...with the trailer hitch and removing the bumper.
Trust me, he's more than appreciative.

Im sure he is Jack. I cant believe the lack of usable parts in your area. I thought it was dry here. The yard I go to has mostly trucks but theres a couple of Cutlasses and a Regal buried out back. Im just glad the one owner came out and gave me a hand getting the bumper off. I'd probably still be there ! LMAO
Vince told me those hitches are hard to find. The guy said I could take it for $25 but those bolts were really rusty and Im sure it would be a project to get it off.

Mich,
The G-body parts situation has pretty much dried up in my area. I think it's pretty much the same where Vince lives. He's 3-hrs south of me. I used to see an occasional G-body at the U-Pull-It, They're usually roached out Cutlass 2-drs, or the occasional clean Cutlass 4-dr. They were always good interior parts donors. Forget about wagons. They've become a rare breed. Chances are you're able to find more G-bodies in other states.
It always amazed me that there was a good supply of these cars up in Canada and some midwestern states.
As for the hitch. Is it a bumper hitch or a frame mounted piece?
