08-04-2004 01:05 AM 1949 Olds - some stuff removed
The fender skirts and gobs of chrome have been removed and stored. The weather-stripping just kinda melted and dripped off it, so the door panels are stained from leaks. Front seat removed and stored, Floor mats, etc, out. Masking junk left over from previous attempt.

Still some original shine on the trunk bracing. Chrome is shot on the tail-light, though, and some crud has accumulated.

08-04-2004 12:50 AM 1949 Oldsmobile - Gotta start somewhere
The last time I drove this old girl was in 1979. It needed some work then, but I'm ashamed to say it needs much more now. The good part is that now I have the time to do the job.

One of the big problems I ran into in my last (aborted) attempt to fix this car up was not having a good shelter just for it while the work was going on. I've seen that pointed out on the Bulletin Board and other Journal entries, too. Look in the background of the first front view and you'll see some home-built scaffolding. To the right of that, I'm adding an extension to a garage, just for the Olds.

Rear view shows the bumper and tail-lights removed and the results of some bad sanding work the last time.
