Second # B15938 – 1957 Chevy Smoothie Bumper – Photos


Since it is the time of the year we make our Seconds available to our customers we wanted to show you these too.  But this is a little different situation so we felt that more information was going to be necessary so we make sure everyone knows what the problems are with this part and why it is a Second.  Also, as these are no longer being produced the ones we have with this defect are the only ones left in the world.  As such, we cannot replace these Seconds with a First Run part if you are not happy because there are no more available.

The main reason these were deemed Seconds are pointed out in the photos.  It is an issue with the tool used to stamp these and it effects the bottom of the bumper at the curves where the front curves into the sides of the car.  The company making these has decided not to try and fix or replace the tool.  So there will be no more unless someone else decides to make them.  We took the photos of the problem areas and tried to point them out so there were no surprises.  We also took video so you could see how they looked from the front and all over.

We have a limited quantity of these Seconds with the same defect in each at the bottom of the curves in the corners.  Plating and such is pretty darn nice and the rest of the Bumper is very Continue reading

Last Chance Seconds Sale


The Danchuk Seconds Sale Is Almost Gone Until 2020


We make many parts and unfortunately some of them do not meet our specifications for a First Run Danchuk Part.  So, we have Seconds.  When we have our sale each September we only advertise the parts we have in abundance so we don’t disappoint too many people.  On October 16 we updated the Seconds list with what we still have available from the first batch and all the items we only have one or two of.  But Hurry.  We won’t update the list again until 2020.  Continue reading

It’s Almost Time To Put Our Babies To Bed

Winter Tri-Five
As the days get shorter and the evenings become cooler there are not too many more months left to enjoy our toys.  Soon, most of us will have to put them away until the warmer temperatures return.

To help you make sure your car comes out of hibernation in the best condition it can we put together a quick checklist of things you should probably be doing when that time comes.  Read On.

  • The first is a no brainer.  You want to find a safe, secure and dry spot to store your car.  Excess moisture can really take a toll when left unchecked for months. 
  • Wash your car.  And be sure to clean top and underneath.  Road debris and grime needs to be cleaned away so it does not create problems.
  • Wax the car.  Besides being a lot of fun, waxing will help maintain the shine and will protect and preserve the color of your paint during the winter months.
  • Clean the upholstery.  Get all those loose fries and pieces of paper the kids, Continue reading
