    Just bought this 39 DeSoto a few weeks ago from Washington state. Had it delivered to San Francisco. Drive it almost every day. Need to adjust the emergency brake a bit but other than that, it’s a great driver. Nick

    The frame is painted. I DA sanded, Jasco rust inhibitor, and three coats of glossy black. Not a perfect job, but will be more than sufficient for most.

    Me and the Meadowbrook

    May 9, 2018: Got the Meadowbrook back on the road. The brakes work pretty good, but I’m not a great expert on the bleeding process. After work tomorrow morning I’m heading to a friend’s to put the car up on his hoist. We’ll get the brakes bled properly then. Here’s a shot while it was warming up. Felt spectacular to be behind the wheel again. My kids rode into town with me to get gas. Can’t wait to drive to work tomorrow morning!

    Large hole in floor

    The OD is in, drive shaft and linkage reattached. Got to get speedo cable extension connect the e brake cable. Wire it up. Napa had some straight 90 gl 1, since I don't operate in the cold, figured I can skip the 80 w part.

    When I here Harbor Freight it feels like someone just put there finger nails on the chaulk board. It even hurts to spell it. The only thing a HF has of quality is there front door. Because it is used very often when guys bring the tools back again and again when they break.

    Many have put adhesive backed sandpaper on the contact area of the drum, then run the shoe back and forth over the paper until the arc of the shoe matches the arc of the drum.

    I didn't think the valves are hard to remove. be sure and stuff some paper towels or rags in the oil galleys before you start to keep the keepers from falling in the holes. I used a "c" clamp spring compressor but other compressors will work also....... "C" clamp is just what I have I suppose with the smaller clamp you may not need to take off the intake and exhaust manifolds.......... sorry, I am not the person to answer about the piston marks

    If you want to reuse it just for some testing spray it with silver paint and then go ahead and reuse. For long term I wouldn't reuse it.

    Frame, dirty, clean, painted

    The corner has been turned as I have gotten my 53 B4C frame cleaned and painted. My friend decided to have a car sandblasted and offered to have my frame done at his shop at the same time. The mobile sandblaster actually used a dustless system with glass and it made the metal actually sparkle. After cleaning I found a cross member had some hidden rust damage so it was removed, patched and will be bolted back on. I then painted por-15 and am really happy with the results. When I get it back to my garage I can actually start putting parts back on instead of taking them off! Here are some pics of the frame from dirty to clean to painted. (by the way for you sharp eyed people, some repair work was done on the frame in the past as the driver's side running board supports had the rivets removed and replace with bolts - they will be put back on later along with the cab supports and cross members you see missing in the pictures)

    I took this old buggy "Gussie" out for a ride over to my brothers house the other day. 12 hilly miles each way.

    Looking good Paul. Maybe this new concept of painting things will have a good influence on you... 😁

    Me and the Meadowbrook

    May 10: So right after work I drove to my friend’s shop and we get it up on the hoist. We were able to bleed the brakes correctly (it needed that) and then I adjusted the brakes a bit on all 4 wheels. I also snugged up a number of bolts and wiped off some excess oil drips. We ate lunch and then parted ways. Stopped at the school on the way home to pick up the kids. They were excited to see the Meadowbrook. 110 miles logged today!

    I bought another old dodge !

    I just got to this thread, nice. But the age thing. . . , Double your 33, and raise it 14 more to get to me. I'm trying to even remember 33, 1971, Nam war, peace nicks, draft dodgers, you probably don't know what the draft was! Hippies in VW vans, Woodstock, 1969, line was so long I turned back!

    We all have the things we like to follow, I like your posts. It's nothing fancy, just an honest chronology of your family and a car, I love it! I've been so busy working to complete my Suburban I'm not out and about as much as I would like with my truck. Enjoy spring and summer.

    I think Ill wire mine this way for now till I figure out a way to plumb the oil pressure switch on my hemi. Did you put the fuse before or after the throw switch. Is there any other way of getting a hold of you to ask more questions. Possibly Facebook messenger. My name is Martin Terrazas. Look me up please. Thanks

    My retired neighbor had a HF impact wrench, eventually his shoulders were giving him enough fits that he asked me to use it one day to break loose his mower blades...I was shocked at how heavy that thing was, and it would not break those big bolts loose...I ran up to the barn and retrieved Dad's 2yr old Craftsman, he could hold it with one hand and broke those bolts off himself...so he got a similar one on sale for like $30, and was pleased as punch to be able to keep working on his stuff...if only shopping online, definitely compare weight as well as air flow requirements

    A close approximation is to draw a horizontal line between the dash plate mounting holes, then measure vertically from that line to the inside edge of the raised border, divide that dimension in half to find the vertical dimension for the lighter center point...set the lighter lip on the plate and trace with a pencil, that will give you a close representation of how it will look. To cut the hole, drill a 1/16" pilot hole, then gradually drill larger holes so as not to damage the plate. Deburr the hole with a round file or slow rpm rasp bit...that can get you close enough to help ya sleep at night...and if anybody gives ya static cuz that lighter is in the wrong location, let me know and I'll extend an invitation for the offended critic to come over to my place where we can have a "discussion" behind the barn (they'll have to pack their own lunch)

    Younger years?? At 33 you're still there!! mid-Missouri?? For most of my life I wasn't aware Missouri existed north of US-60. Come to think about it, I'm still not convinced.. this state gets weirder the farther north you get..
