Why are there so many snaps on the sides of the truck? It seems to have double other tickford trucks.

Wish I knew, no idea. I plan to get a tickford top at some point, will have to figure out snaps at that time I guess.

Post a want ad. Hopefully it won't look weird when you pull the snaps. If it does you might as well put the belt rail on.

Maybe it had a Beltrail installed and removed?

You are welcome to come by and look at mine if you want to measure

Those snaps are for the full tonneau cover. I bet you have snaps on top of your dashboard as well.

I have one snap and strap right behind my ashtray. No others though. Will the tickford line up with the snaps for the tonneau?

Scratch my last statement. Mine didn't have that many snaps. See attached picture
I bet a previous owner added more snaps to the truck to keep the Tickford in place.

I am pretty sure the tonneau uses the same snaps as the surrey.

Here are my oil cooler lines...does this protection appear sufficient or should I do the SS lines?
I think Trevor at Roverlabs did these...

Remove the oil cooler/lines and you won't need to worry.

My next project are the oiler cooler lines as well. I've read up a bit on this and saw a few people mention just removing the oil cooler & lines. I didn't know that was an option. What are the benefits and downsides to this vs. upgrading the lines to stainless?

The original Buick design didn't have an external oil cooler. The one on the Rover variant is there for extra cooling in extreme conditions. It's one of those engineering solutions designed to add reliability that turns out to be a liability. Yes you can simply undo the oil filter, remove the adapter nut and the adapter and put the new oil filter right on the engine. We of the anti-cooler faith also plug the fittings on the rad to keep the crud out of the threads and passages.
I imagine that if you drive in Q8 with the AC on full blast that it would help, but it wouldn't kill the engine if it weren't there.

Thanks for the description - I'm thinking this might be my solution. Our summers are quite mild here and no A/C - so I bet I'll be OK.

Mine are now disconnected... No more worrying about them letting go and I'm pretty sure the adapter plate had a minor drip that is now gone too!

I left the hoses hanging there - I briefly tried to loosen the radiator connectors and had visions of torquing the right hand rad tank right off... I may put some solvent on from time to time and see if I can get them loose.

The more I thought about the cooler - the more I thought it was overkill for a 90 driven in my area...

Thanks again.
