Re: Cost of Paint Job?

I always get a laugh when I tell people I got my car painted at Earl Scheib, but they treated me right. They did the job for $400. I couldn't even buy the paint for that price.

See it here.

I have one of those "Hollywood Wolf Whistles" on my Packard. It mounts on the intake manifold, not the exhaust.

It's a lot of fun

"The handing over of Union property on Confederate soil, such as forts, post office buildings and other government property were such details."

What? By definition, "on Confederate soil" means it is most surely not Union property.

No one is expecting that we will resurrect the war between the states. The principles, however, remain as true as ever. The war was won by force, not by principle.

I have a 2262 myself. Mine is a '49, but it's just the same as yours.

Check my project website to see some of the fun I've had with mine.

Marvin King at Patrician has them. They are pricey, but available.

Personally, I'm looking for an inexpensive alternative. I just can't afford to pay that much for the "PACKARD" to be molded into the rubber.

Re: What Kind Of Backer Board For Inside Door Panels??

The Velcro is about the best idea I've heard in 2009. The next time I pull my panels off I'm putting Velcro in there, at least on the lower quarter.

Wow, it's like having my own personal Bailout!

You've used the foam mat material that way? When I looked at it (with this purpose in mind) it seemed too stiff and brittle to use. I never found any suitable cardboard.

I never thought about moistening the foam board. I just assumed it was too water resistant to be affected.

And yes - it is the high cost of shipping that board that deters me from ordering the "right stuff" from a distant supplier.

I used masonite for my door panels, and while I wouldn't want to redo them, I must agree with Mr. Dyneto. The masonite is just a little too rigid to be the best choice. The panels are too prone to pop loose from the slightly curved door surface. I've often wondered if I shouldn't have dampened it just a little before installation. Masonite takes a shape pretty easily.

However, it is only about $4 per door, and you can get it at Lowe's. I stopped by a restoration shop before I used it, got their recommendation, and used it because they said that's what they used.

What I really am curious about is what kind of materials people are finding to replace kick panels and rear window shelves. Masonite is indeed an unacceptable choice there, as there is a pronounced curve to those panels. Any suggestions?

Re: 1951 Standard Transmission / Overdrive oil change

Please use GL4, not GL5, gear oil. Yes, there is a difference, I'm told. The GL ratings are performance, and not chemical content ratings. I've been told by trustworthy sources that the additives in the GL5-rated oils can damage the yellow metals in our transmissions and rear ends.

So, protect your rear end.

OK, I'll go out on a limb here.

Not only is it OK for states to secede from the union, it is even the right thing to do at this point.

It was only the force of arms by the federal government that took that "right" from the southern states. Read the first fifty-six words of the Declaration of Independence for all the clarification you will ever need. Government exists only by the consent of the governed.

And no... I'm not from where you think. I was raised in Massachusetts!
