Sounds great Cliff!

I didn't do a whole lot, installed some pieces and sealed up the inner quarter panels. Then started on the quarter trim panels. DAMN REPRO PARTS what junk! I am making some "fuzzies" for the window work by cutting some extra door ones I had for the quarters where the ones in the kit were way to thick. Anyway, that is going well. I went out to get some Semi gloss black vinyl paint for my trim panels and can't find any! I'll be after SEM at the paint store tomorrow, hope they have it.

Brian

I worked on 1937 Cadallac LaSalle coupe

I worked on a 1937 Cadillac LaSalle coupe that has not ran for 15 years. The reliable 322 flat heat eight is a strong cookie sprayed oil in each cylinder and adjusted points and voila running in about 5 min. She smoked quiet a bit but she cleaned up after 10 min. of running. tomarrow we hit the road, well a gravel road at least. jessedenny47

Just got home from Shades of the Past rod run. One of my friends daughter and son in law won the give away car. Pretty cool. Another friends wife emaile me a picture of my roadster in front to the motel. As you can see, we were pretty laid back.

By the way, Brian, You are indeed "The Man". Great job. I hope we get to brag on Jesse's headliner when he posts pictures of his project.

You won't believe this but on the way home we passed a fire hall up the road a piece and I thought about that thread. Didn't stop though. Was just wanting to be home at that point. Don't be surprised though when that thread gets resurrected.

Nothing earth shattering tonight but got out for my five minutes and did some work on the rear trim panels, pulled chrome pieces off and got them ready to paint.

Been tapping and shrinking and stretching metal on the front clip for the last two weeks.

I finally got it close to the correct shape, so I'm making up a trim angle to weld around the opening to help lock it in place.

Well Boys I worked on a 1947 servi-car and a 1951 Indian Chief. I stepped away from the cars and took on two motorcycles.

Awesome! My brother got into the vintage bikes for a while and I had the good fortune to help him restore a few 40's Harleys, very cool machines! When I was a kid my dad worked at a Buick Dealership and they had a Servi-car as a parts getter! I remember it had a tow bar on the front fork. They would tow it behind a car they were delivering (WAY more cars had hitches back then) and drop the car off at the customers house and ride the Servi-car back!

1947 servi-car

That is what a lot of people did not know is the first used for delivering cars to customers. Then the police meter maids used them. I sold one 7 years ago for $5000.00 and I felt sorry for the guy whom bought it and I gave him back $500.00. Now they are going for around $15,000.00. This one I worked on had 17 miles on a total restore. Looks great. Later Jesse

Tonight I got out to the garage for an hour or so with further work on the quarter interior trim. They are looking good, cleaning up well.

Good to see your progress Pugs. Keep the pictures coming. I can't imagine starting a project so involved. I know we all have to admire your hard work.
