    Earlier this year the time felt right to move on my 33 phaeton, pretty tough decision at the time, A sense of loss
    http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/index.php?threads/A-sense-of-loss.1013587/
    But, there's a couple of bucket list cars that, well life is short, so you got to chase them down and go for it if you can.

    So yesterday my new deuce arrived, pretty damn happy, it needs the usual patches, but pretty good for an 84 year old. Laying under that primer looks to be washington blue.

    So the plans, not exactly sure at this stage, I've got a 59a, 39 box, paint wise, not sure, maybe do the patches and keep seeing what's left of the old paint.

    It will run an undropped axle and headlight bar,
    18's on the back and 17's on the front, blackwalls, inspiration coming from the "deluxe" 32 3 window build Ryan posted on the journal a couple of months back.

    Oh man nice coupe. I love your plan for it too. If bring it back to original paint do the metal repairs then match to the existing original as much as possible. So cool

  4. It appears some one in the past shot a coat of primer over the black. HRP

    If I had a 32 on my bucket list the bucket would remain empty!

    Put the front end in the weeds, big and little black wires, and drive it.

    Correct HRP, I'm out in the shed at the moment trying to get the primer off, it's revealing washington blue, any tips on the best method on getting the primer off?

    I've had good luck using a single edge razor. buy a box and several different types of holders. You may want to hit the corners with a grinding stone to prevent catching a corner and doing damage. Did a Rolls Royce like that years ago down to original primer. Bob

    Layers and layers of paint and primer seems to have preserved the original paint, I've buffed and polished a small section, something about the old lacquer that just can't be replicated.
