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

OK. Here's a new trivia. There is at least one main standard (non-option) item that one could "delete" on a new 1963 or 1964 Cadillac for a reduced cost.  What is it?  For extra cigars, what is the…Continue

Another advantage of the Pertronix III

Posted by Doug Scarrow on November 23, 2019 at 11:12am 1 Comment

   Having tried both the II and III I can say the multispark feature of the III offers a smoother idle . It is also easier to install .Does not require removal of the distributor

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
