  1. 1947 Chrysler Windsor garage find finished

    I like the vinegar and EvapoRust idea. I am a little confused with the order of the bottles vs. the order of the procedure. I'm assuming the far right bottle is before, the EvapoRust is red and the vinegar is last. So you first fill the radiator with vinegar, fire up the engine and run it through the system, drain and then repeat with EvapoRust? Probably not, so fill me in.
  2. water tube question

    Thanks. Very ingenious.
  3. water tube question

    Bluefox, how did you de-rust the inside of your engine with the acid, and what kind of acid. I am assuming that the engine was still in the car?

    Sorry, I just saw your explanation about the water spots. I was too busy looking at the photos.

    That looks really nice. I'm going to do mine single-stage as well. Base/clear is very impressive, but I think that these cars when new were more like yours than very, very high gloss. I'd be very happy with your results. So how did the spots turn out from water in your line?

    That looks great! Now, that's single stage, right? Is that one coat or two or three wet coats? Looks like it has a nice gloss. I hope you will give some insights into re-aligning the hood and clip, etc. I'm debating whether to remove the hood for painting. But I guess it's just something to learn. Good job.

    Well, if you have an explosion proof fan that's great. I thought you might be using a house fan.

    Just be careful of any electrical sparks. The mist will be very concentrated in there. Have fun! Can't wait to see it done. Wish it was my '47. I'm painting mine black as well, so this will be good.
  10. Discovering Great Unknown (to me) Music

    I've owned a Strat, Rickenbacher 6-string, an Ibanez that I can't recall the model, a Martin D-18 and a crappy Vox Shadow when I was about fourteen. What a piece of junk. But at fourteen, what did I know. I just wanted to be a Beatle.
  11. Discovering Great Unknown (to me) Music

    George Harrison, a big fan of the country guitarists, used his black Gretsch on the Beatles first U.S. Ed Sullivan appearance.
  12. Removing inner door handles, B1B

    I bought a similar one from a guy on ebay. Worked perfectly.

    I can just imagine Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint climbing down Don's nose!
  14. reproduction dash knobs

    They look very nice. I wish he'd make them for S-11's.
  15. Risk of Mice Nests

    Thanks. That's pretty much what I thought and was hoping to hear!
