Dave's Thoughts


Feelin' blue


Part of job was trans issues. After pulling out the dark goo came out. This time it was not a "kiss" of death. Actually was (comparatively) very good.  Intermediate gear was ready to go completely bad. It did wear out "top hats" but luckily did not destroy gear. This car would be considered a cosmetic restoration. Previous owner painted a nice car. But now taking apart, axles are weak, brakes are bad, and tunnels on car have worn thin. Things like this are why people from all over the country bring me their cars.  I have decided to pull the engine. Clean the hull and inspect for other areas of possible trouble.

Hood had holes drilled in. So I punched some steel circles and welded shut.

Now it is all pretty.

Pulled engine and fixed oil leaks. Took pan off cleaned and resealed.


Seat frames have been stripped and now painted. waiting for new skins

Rusted brakes. Currently shoes are relined, Cylinders are sleeved. Drums cleaned and painted

Hull has been washed and tunnel is being repaired.

Lots of windshield glue removed.

New rear axles and bearings. Wheel cylinders sleeved and painted


Evil muddy gooey hull. What mess power washing made!!! But after wiping down with degreasers was able to spray some paint


Tunnel repair cut out bad, fabricate replacement, I then cover all seams with epoxy then paint.
