    Thanks, that's the plan. I am going to make the interior real nice, but leave the outside alone until I win the lottery so I can afford paint and body work.

    Good plan.
     
  3. There's some info I needed, thank you very much. I knew my 35's color was darker, but didn't have a name.

    Got my package tray mostly built. 1/2" aluminum honeycomb. Stereo is all hooked up. Eventually I will cover it in leather or burl wood when the time comes. Speakers will not be visible when I get around to upholstery. Will be making some slats and leather straps to actually mount a small suitcase later on.[​IMG]

    It has a 350/350 combo. Runs great and rides real nice. Besides paint someday, I want to do some custom skirts and a really nice interior. that's really about it. Keep it pretty simple.

    Been a while... All I've done is drive it and deal with the cooling issue I have always had. Finally put a high flow pump and thermostat on, along with a new pusher fan. That combo seemed to help out quite a bit. Only other option I have is to do major surgery and pull the engine, cut the firewall to move the engine back to be able to fit a puller fan w/ shroud. I also made a steel glove box. That's about it.

    I finally broke down and replaced the factory steering box with a Borgeson Vega box. It made a world of difference in how it handles. In that process I modified the original column so that I could retain the factory column lock.. I am about to slap some new 16" wheels and tires, so I can run my Lyon caps. I had the wheels painted the original Washington Blue color of the car. Should have them on by next weekend.

    I did the same thing. After trying to get the play out of a very good '46 steering box I finally bought a new Borgeson Mullin Vega.box and it has no play and it steers almost like power steering. I also like your choice of hub caps. '36 all done 002.JPG
