The 22 series bumper has over twenty different parts, and yes very expensive to plate. I have done three and have some extra parts. If you don't plane to show the car you might consider looking for a complete 23 series bumper with the supports.

The bolts are safety wired due to the uses of fiber washers and inserts to insulate the pump from the block. Also a thick gasket is used.

Fish'n Jim; The station sedan you you speak of from Mr. Neals book was built by my friend Clarence Blixt, It states this on page 175. Clarence loved his Packards, six that I know of, in fact I own his 28 526 convertible coupe. I will not go into all the details of how the station sedan was put together other then to say the 2293 body was placed on a super eight cassis, the doors were skinned and 23 series senior side trim was used. Clarence was a gentleman and is missed by his many friends.

42Packard; The picture of the breather on the car is my 42 110, other picture is of two types of breathers I have. Please let me know if one will work for you. The larger one that is the same as on my car has been cleaned and powder coated black. Dell

Hi Mal; Hard to believe your trip was eight years ago. I put the first piece of completed wood on the station sedan today. The picture in the registry shows all the wood with the exception of the rear window which I am working on at the time. I have five pieces left in the final blocking and polishing stage. It has been a long woad with many redo's and hours of varnishing. Hopefully it will be in the upholstery shop by the first of the year.
As for the solid door station sedan, I first saw it on ebay which had some larger pictures. I would bet money the doors have been skinned by a skilled body man, the primer is different on the doors and if one looks at the rear door about the level of the front door lock two short lines of a lighter color are visible about one inch apart. That is where the weld would be located. They say never judge a man till you walk a mile in his moccasins, but sure would like to put my hand inside that door. Please take care and hope all of yours are well. Dell

Larry; I would suggest you use some of the wonderful plastic tools in place of the metal for removing the panels. they are kinder on the paint. Keep up the good work.

I also gave up after over an hour trying to register my 42, I admit that I an over eighty and computers are difficult for me. Even with the help of Mark from the web sight I could not find a place to attach a picture of my 42. I hope they miss my $10.

Wes: the green clip looks like the clip that holds the upholstery piping on the windshield trim. If you have sloppy side to side play on your clutch and brake pedals i have a set that has bushings on a new shaft. If I remember I will check on the clip.
