    Good morning Brian.
    I'd like to get your opinion on some bodywork and paint that I've gotten an estimate for on my wife's 2013 Jetta wagon. The bodyshop claims they have to hire a glass shop to come out and remove the small back window in the photo and have them come back and reinstall it after they've painted it. They also want to remove all the chrome molding along the roof line. I can understand them wanting to paint the whole rear bumper and quarter panel, rocker and roof line above the doors all the way to the windshield to keep from having to blend the paint but it seems removing the window seems a little excessive. The quote I got for fixing the small dents by the tail light and paint, including R&R-ing the window is a little over $1400.. I know paint is expensive but it doesn't seem there's really a need for taking the window out etc.. Whadya think?

    Cool picture, always allows the imagination to run wild on what's going on with the vehicle "on the trailer"! I remember working on a 53 MG many years ago, some rotten wood structure and the aluminum body was quite a challenge. The best I can remember the customer was very happy with all the repairs that were done and happy to pay the final bill. I think at that time the total job was just under $500.00, ah the good ole days. Today as you are well aware that wouldn't even pay for the primer! Happy to say I have stuck it out all these years doing what I enjoy the most, a little paint, body, frame repair/fabrication. I have a little 800 square shop to play in away from my house, keeps the neighbors happy! Always enjoy your posts and point of view! Have a great day

    Those Trivia pics really bugged me trying to remember and I thought I seen them on some radiators. So I started searching on line and found them and I was right. They are a type of adapter fitting for trans cooler lines. I remember them coming with a few new or reman. radiators fom time to time. I don't remember why they have both ends flared though.

    Hello Brian
    I went to the sight you told me about. And they all seem to think that it won't work. The only direct fit to my 51 frame is a 1950 frame or another 51. So i'm on the hunt. Thanks so much for helping me. I believe you saved me alot of headach. Merry Christmas to you and a Happy New Year!!

    Hello Brian, My question is this: I want to put a 1951 chevy coupe body on a 1954 chevy 4dr sedan frame. I'm keeping everything else stock. So i guess what i really need to know is if the frames are the same? I appreciate all the info i can get. thanks Hotball

    Thanks Martinsr for the welcome. As stated earlier I've got a Streetbeast 33 Vicky.
    Bought it in a weak moment before doing any research. So now I need to rework certain areas. The doors to body mismatch (caps), hood to side panels and grill shell fitment.
    Just for starters. So any help from from the forum members will be greatly appreciated.
