    Thanks mate!

    this info about power window motors was great! i must search such also.

    currently i have no idea, how to solve 6V --> 12V conversion in dash and gauges. would be nice to have original dash in working order, but that remains to be seen... engine, lights, power windows and power seat are easy, i think =)

    Here is a nice look as a base. You should be able to find the needed parts to pull off something similar.
    The grille itself would be be left to your imagination (bars, bullets, or ???)

    A complete '55 pontiac would be ideal.

    This one uses a 1955 Buick bumper, as a base.


    [​IMG]

    Richard Zocchi's '56 used a '58 Caddy bumper, to much the same effect.
    You get the idea.

    Don't think I'm butting in, but I've been watching. Sometimes painting the lower part of the bumper makes the rest look more custom. 100_2318.JPG

    Will the 368 intake fit this 341?
     
  10. Yes, the 368 intake will physically fit a 341. Port sizes will be your only concern, and I am pretty sure they will match as well. The Lincoln Y block never changed physical dimensions despite ranging in displacement from 279 to 368 ci. throughout its production run.

    Door needed heat and cold. Luckily, we do have SNOW here. Plenty of it!

    Dear followers. Sorry for being so silent. Easy does it, right? =)

    Latest activity contains doors. Although those seems quite solid and straight, there were a lot to do there...

    Merry xmas to You all, friends. Good time to do some polishing. Outdoors -22C (that's about -8F) is quite freezing, but luckily it's warm inside =)

    It appears that you are attaching those "Fender Skirts" permanently? As another '52-'54 owner, I would STRONGLY recommend that you keep them REMOVEABLE, as it would be ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE to change /service a flat tire withy the skirts in place! Just a caution.

    I suspect (hope) he's just using the skim coat of filler to make the panel alignment as perfect as possible. But I'm sure he'll let us know for sure. :)

    It's coming along!
    Will you be misting guide coats, for straightness? (Spray bomb black lacquer and a long board, maybe?)
