Here is a list of links to my 2012 Engine Rebuild Project and various Other Restoration Projects and thought it might be helpful to pull them all together and post on our Restoration Forum.  See links below:

I often get asked about my history with the 64 Cadillac and the March 2014 Newsletter article I did featuring the 50th birthday of my 64 Coupe de Ville put's it all together rather nicely. I keep a PDF version on my iPhone and thought I would share here.   To check it out click on Jason's Story from March 2014 Newsletter.pdf

Beautiful job.

Thanks, It's crazy that it has been 8 years! Needs a bit of freshening up but has held up well.

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 1 Comment

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob

Car lift and jack stands

Posted by Les Eastling on March 23, 2021 at 10:00am 4 Comments

I mentioned during the 63/64 chapter zoom meeting on 3/21 that we had installed a car lift in our garage. Someone asked what kind and I didn't have the info at hand, so here is a link to it and also a link to some tall jack stands we use to add more stability to the car and an additional safety factor.

Leaky Freeze Plug

Posted by Lee Martin on March 22, 2021 at 12:49pm 7 Comments

Just developed a significant leak coming from a freeze plug right over the starter.  Would this be considered a "cam plug" i.e. like Dorman 17616DS?  Our cars have multiple sizes of plugs on engine block and I want to get the right one.  Also, does anyone know how pricey this is for a shop to fix?  Thanks!
