Re: Vacation Car - 56 Patrician

This past weekend my schedule opened up a bit and I was able to do more stuff to the Patrician.

I started the polishing of the gold mesh. I was going back and forth on if I wanted to recoat it or what to do, but I used this polish from Autosol that is called anodized aluminum polish. Did a really good job! If you look just below the red line in the picture, that is where I didnt do it yet and the areas closer to the camera is where I did. Its not really noticeable head on, but it definitely makes a difference when viewed at an angle. I did the gold twice so far. I am thinking of one more coat of polish and I should be ready to start assembling the dash board. The pad is suppose to be here in the next week or so.

I also got the seals and small parts ordered for the T85/R11 trans. So hopefully they come in soon so I can start working on that!
