03-24-2013 07:16 PM Trunk Lid
Started by taking the coating off the underside of the trunk skin. A little bit of time with a heat gun and putty knife most of it came off. Finished off by washing it down with lacquer thinner. It always amazes me how a part made in 1938 could still look brand new when you clean it up. The last picture is blurry,but its the only one I have.

Pulled the trunk lid off the '38 today.Needed to do the prep and repairs to the underside of it. Had a number of holes cut/drilled/torn in it.

03-21-2013 10:06 PM Little update.....
Took a small break from working on the plymouth.Got invited to be one of the featured vehicles at the Hot Rod Restoration Trade Show in Indianapolis last weekend.So I spent a few weeks cleaning up the '48 to get it ready for the show. Had a great time,met alot of great people. Actually ended up driving the truck home after the show. Now just cleaning up the mess I left in the garage,so I can get back to work on the '38 this weekend.

Was nice enough outside today to roll the '38 out of the garage for the first time in months. It gave me a chance to get a better look at the overall progress,and clean out the garage a bit. Still have a lot more work to do, but I am happy with the way its going so far....
