Here is the rear quarter with all the rust stains removed. Hopefully the body work can get finished soon so I can get some paint on this car.

Haha I just hope there is a gift shop on the way out. You know I can't resist picking up a few extra Cadillac goodies.

Chris, Feel free to save and use the picture.  
On 2nd thought. I should do it like the amusement rides... you pay to come cut off the qtr fender, and I charge you $10 for an  8x10 glossy! LOL. JUST KIDDING!

Thanks Tony and Jason. Cody Walls over in Delaware welded it up for me. He's a classic hot rod builder and has some serious fabrication skills so I knew he was the guy to go to. He's currently sectioning a Buick and building a 32-3 Window Ford among other things. You can check out some of his work on his website https://www.traditionalmetalcraft.com/ and that's a great picture of me and my buddy Chris. Do you mind if I use that on Facebook?

Chris 

Some very serious skills required to even attempt a body repair of this nature 

I love seeing this kind of work being accomplished 

Amazing accomplishment 

You know I have a soft spot for convertibles in our years 

Enjoy

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!

Thanks for letting me join the club.  Picked up this ‘64 Coupe Deville a few months ago out of Beverly MA, the car has few stickers on it from various Cadillac clubs, didn’t know if anyone might recognize it from it’s “Glory days.” Everything seems pretty healthy except for the body and some very Mickey Mouse repairs, was wondering if anyone had any leads on…
