    SG Harness in Firebird

    Inherited a Rolex. Does Anyone Know About Them?

    Nice Rolex Submariner. I have a similar no date model, but mine is the older 2 line text model which used radioactive radium for the glow of the hands and dial dots. The most common service need for a Rolex watch is lubrication. When the lubrication ages, it can dry up and or get gummy...

    Do we like 1974 Les Paul Customs?

    I have a 72 Les Paul Custom that was a basket case when I bought it. The neck needed to be fixed from a bad repair, as well as the fingerboard needing to be completely replaced. The paint is original except for the neck repair which I blended it into the original finish. The thing is a monster...

    My 69 Gold top restoration project

    I finally got around to posting the pictures of my 69 Gold top project. I started this project late November 2003 and completed it about the second week of February 2004. It was rough spraying paint during the winter in the garage, but I somehow was able to get through it, waiting for the warm...

    Any thoughts on this so-called 55 GT?

    I'm pretty sure I saw this on EBAY before, and I think it might have been discussed here also. The serial number looks like it's smeared, and the logo looks too high. I emailed to guy and he's looking for $3500. Any thoughts on this...
