Hello All,


Thank you for the comments !!


Question, can one of you photo shop black carpets into this picture, as the passenger side was ruined by something being stuck to the carpet, and someone before me tore it off and resulting in a large hole, so I found a set of black carpets, and I am a little hesitant to install as I am thinking it might take away from the two tone all red interior, but it is my next step, so....

wowoww Johnny. That's impressive.

It took me 40 mins and many forum read to remove my gear ****. I can't imagine how hard it would be to tear apart the entire car and rebuild it.

Props!

I could not conceive of a job like that. Looked like spaghetti and scrap to me. I'd have left that sucker in the ocean.

I am sorry I would have just looked at this and set fire to both the cars.




This is what I did with my 57 Cadillac and it took days.

wow amazing progress!!!! Nice work!

just wondering i assume the car would have a salvage title due to the flood right? Why not just take the almost 40k you invested and save the time and buy a clean title one for low 40s?

Hello Acmw,


Thanks for your comment !!


As far as your question, I don't know where you got 40K ??? I do not have 40K into it, nor will I, I actually have less then the 23K I paid for it into it now, the parts vehicle gave me all the parts needed for free, and in parting out the unneeded hard parts and body shell, that has given a return that covered more then it's cost, and I still have two doors, rear bumper, trunk lid, side mirrors, door handles, inner door, rear seats, headliner, all door glass, I/4 glass, ETC. and I am selling at below fair prices.


As far as my time, that's my fun time, only work on her nights and weekends, and the occasional I feel like staying home days......


Don't ask me how many hooky days are into her....

Impressive work to say the least, and outdoors, no lift and of course sans some specialty tools. Wow. Great job as these cars are not the easiest to work on

Not sure if you mentioned it but what year is she?

HUGE respect!


Many guys love 'turning wrenches' and soon you'll have a free Bentley, or have some profit(!) once this is all done. Massively admire your efforts and skills.
