Several areas in my 64 SDV body need repair and attention. Front bumbers, grille and lights came separately with the car. There is one bigger rust damage behind passenger side front wheel. Windscreen has damage but I probably could pass MOT like it is now. Front bench fabric was badly broken in driver`s area. And many small things here and there.
I started by removing everything from trunk, and it was in quite original condition. Luckily no rust problems, only some brown old glue here and there. I vacuumed parts ajd put them back. Trunk fabric needs to be glued properly in place some day.
Wow, that seat turned out beautiful!
Thank you all for kind words. I am amazed how good condition the original parts are in the whole car. Seems that the only real problems are bumber lower buckets and rust damage under AC condenser. I got replacement buckets from USA but the driver side is somehow deformed and difficult to use.
this brings back memories. You have the same interior as i do in my '64 sedan deVille. I got my seat fabric from SMS also. Keep up the great work and keep posting pictures of your progress. We love PICTURES.
Sounds like you have a very sound Cadillac body after your inspection of it to be putting your blood sweat tears and dollars into
That is as good as it can get
It does surprise me how much of the old seating material can be reused by the shops to bring them back to new life
Both you and Jason have good results having a shop use as much of the old stock materials as is possible
with the new SMS material you acquired
I assume you had the shop replace all the foam components needed in the front seat
The front seat looks brand new and a perfect match to the rear - which is as good as it gets
Great attention to detail on the shops and your part to get it right
Love your interior color as it is the same as mine
You do very nice work my friend and blessed with many skills to be doing the extensive work you have
Is a wonderful thing to be watching and be a part of on this site
Congrats on the continued progress!!! You are indeed beaming! Better than sitting on the floor board, eh?
Great progress and looking Good !
Enjoy many more future years of sitting behind that steering wheel and having a blast when driving your Classic Antique Cadillac that you are making a super restored special Cadillac
A very special and unique project for anyone making a solid 58 year old Cadillac fresh and new in every way possible
A special achievement that many on this site would love to be capable of doing and on there very own future bucket list
Enjoy your progress and results
