Selecting the Right Shop for Paint

Posted on April 20, 2014 at 6:27pm 3 Comments

Hello All,

I'm beginning the process of finding the right shop to paint my 64 fleetwood.  

I had the car at a restoration shop for about a year getting all the mechanical work done, but they gave a very vague estimate for paint. They quoted me around 20k to paint including removing all the trim, bumpers, door handles, and media blasting the body.  I understand that anything can come up during the process but do shops normally provide a detailed quote and as issues arise its…

Professional Restoration Shop Work Questions/Thoughts/Pricing

Posted on June 4, 2013 at 9:55pm 12 Comments

So I have come to terms that I'm unable to spend the necessary time to get my Cadillac up and running on my own.  I decided to have the car taken to a professional restoration shop for a full mechanical evaluation.   I wanted to get some opinions on what they suggested was needed to get the car drivable and inspected.  The car has been sitting for a long time, two years in my possession and I'm sure even longer beforehand.   

I know taking it to a professional shop would cost some…

David, I see you are in PA area and there are several CLC Regions in the area and around the north east.  This is another reason to join and become an active member of the CLC and your local region(s) if not already a member.

Our Eastern NC and Carolina region members are constantly networking (usually via email) when we need to find someone that knows how to work on our old Cadillac.  For example a couple weeks ago someone needed resources to rebuild his hold Hydramatic and sent an email out to the Carolina region and I saw no less than 6 solid responses on reputable transmission mechanics in the Carolina area that work on these older transmissions.

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

Posted by Jeff Kinzler on November 3, 2019 at 10:00pm 9 Comments

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…

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…
