Question about Buick Skylark

1 Answer

Automotive stainless steel repair

Where may I find a reputable, affordable place where I can get the stainless steel side moldings on my 1966 Buick Skylark repaired? Someone in the past has used sheet metal screws to attach the moldings when the original clips failed. I cannot seem to find where I can get them repaired or replaced. The bumpers also have to be straightened and rechromed. Those I can find somewhere hopefully. The side moldings are the real problem. Thank you, Tom

Check for electroplating business. We have one in our area that does bumpers or whatever needs chrome re-done. contact a local car club too if you any in your area, they'd most likely have all those number & connections for you. Even a local bodyshop should be of assistance.

How to select Injection mold steel?


There are many kind of steel: for long runs production, a durable mold is required, the tool steel must be selected properly; for small volume production, steel selection can be as economic as possible as long as it meet the requirement of production demands.
How to choose the injection mold steel? Important steel properties include:
Ease of machining
Dimensional stability after heat treatment
Wear resistance
Surface finish
Corrosion resistance

Mold steel we selected frequently are 1.2344, 1.2343, 1.2312, 1.1730, H13, S136, 2083, etc. Normally we categorized them as pre-harden steel or harden steel. Pre-harden steel can be machined and used directly after purchase, harden steel required heat treatment during process, the machining take longer time, injection mold made by harden steel usually have long service life.

Corrosion resistant hardened steels should be selected when conventional flame retardants are used. In the case of halogen free flame retardant DSM thermoplastics, standard steel types can be selected. Beryllium copper inserts may be used for improved cooling near hot spots. High heat conductivity is also required for gate drops in hot runner molds. Standardization of mold parts is growing, not only for ejector pins, leader pins and bushings, but also for mold plates and even complete mold bases. These standard mold bases require only machining of the cores, cavities and cooling channels and fitting of an ejection system. Advantages are:

Cost savings 3050%
Short delivery times

Making materials usually adopt plastic die steel, mainly including carbon structural steel, tool carbon steel, tool alloy steel and high-speed steel. Injection molding is only suitable for manufacturing thermoplastic products. Thermoplastic products made by injection molding are quite wide. Daily necessities, complicated machineries, parts on electric appliances and vehicles are molded by injection mold. It is the most widely used in manufacturing plastic products.

Depending on the clip, there were special tools made to release the clip from the molding. The tool slides under the molding and you turn it to release. The clips are usually screwed to the metal surface, or snap into a hole.
