Not finished, but getting close.
Huh? Water will not boil at 185, no matter where you are, or whether you have cap on the radiator.
I’m going to have to look for some MOPAR 40’s 16” to get the correct bolt pattern, but yes, that be a good look. I’d probably go with body color.
I have enough of this, left over from the DeSoto. So again, the wagon is perhaps the nicest parts car ever. [ATTACH]
Right back atcha! I had to sort of sneak out of the house and disappear for a while to get this far! Just enough to reassure me my idea was...
Quick and dirty strip of the gauge cluster and polish. I love it.
You can't go home again.
Work in progress. '52 DeSoto dash and gauge cluster in my '29 Model A roadster. It's gonna be sa-weet.[ATTACH]
I asked poorly, didn't I? :p
I guess I'll call it "Lucy", since non of your names have any "pizazz". :p

Looking great! I came to loathe blocking primer, seemed like I was never gonna finish the roadster. Merry Christmas!
I put the blue body back on the blue frame. Blue is the new black.
It’s back on the chassis!
I may have some Scotch heritage, but I prefer Kentucky Bourbon. I mean, I’ll drink it if there’s no whiskey…
You gotta redirect SOME of it man! [emoji23]
Thanks, in this the look of single stage was what I was going for. Base/clear has a different look to my eye. Cost wasn’t a factor, although I...
It was dark grey. The paint covered very well, I used less than two quarts of color.
That’s funny right there, I don’t care who you are! Thanks, it really feels good having color on this thing, it’s been my sanity savior project!
Lol, if I got stoned I’d just sit in a chair in the shop and stare at the fire in the stove! That was a post paint celebratory drink! No more...
Good question. I don’t have a fresh air system, I just use a respirator that’s approved for use with these vapors. They’re cheap, I use a new...
