Ofcr James,
I use a mix that I learned about here on Packardinfo. Half ATF and half Acetone. Amazing how this works. I used it on all the rusty stuff. Using a Mason jar with a lid, the acetone will evaporate over time, I just add more and use a paint brush. It will take many coats to get it loosened.

HH56,
The item in the lower right corner with the wire is the glove box light switch. There should be a black switch button that turns the light off when the glove box door is closed. There is should be a light socket on the opposite side of the black button.

I have no idea what the other items are and I don't recall seeing bolts like those anywhere, but I did not completely dissemble the dash in my 23 series.

I just went out and checked under the dash, nothing strikes me I can't see how the defroster fan is mounted to the firewall though.

I can send a photo of switch mounting if needed.

The red boat tail was really nice too. Don't know why I am attracted to them. Thanks for sharing the link.

Any photos of the '53/'54 Chevy gas tank modifications?
Took my old tank to Gas Tank ReNue, it will be over $600 to repair and seal it. I am having a hard time finding a good tank so this is a real option and it looks good.
Thanks

I am not sure about the gasoline where you live, but here in California, 6 months seems to be the max life. If your gas smell like turpentine get it out of there. I have had to rebuild a few small engine carbs because of the turpentine smell or varnish as referred to earlier.

I bought 1 for my 2392 from Puffer Williams (Old name) HH52 turned me on to them. There plate is excellent quality, pre drilled but they do not stamp the numbers or other info.

I have had a hard time finding someone with the similar type of stamps in my area. I don't know what style of font they used but measure the letters at 3/8 in

Here is a scan of the new plate and an old one.

This isn't exactly "Various CL Pickings" but...I was in a local junkyard looking for some parts for another car (non Packard) of ours. With a yard worker we were scouring a remote yard. Of course I didn't have my phone with me!

Anyway, there was a 51 or ? 2 door hardtop way over against the wall. It was difficult to get back there. The car has rust of course and the floor is rusted through in places.
The dashboard is missing as is the steering column. Door and interior panels missing. seat frame(s), with out cloth, are there.

The exterior body appears in good shape, the grill, bumpers look good. The right rear taillight lens is broken. The headlight buckets are missing.

I couldn't get the hood or trunk open. It does have an engine but not sure about a trans. and I don't recall if the pedals were there.

Someone looking for a nice project? I hate to see Packards, especially this one, just rusting away. My Wife says "No more cars!". So anyone interested? PM me. We might have to twist the yard owners arm a bit. Great candidate for a frame off restoration. It will take some work getting out of there but I think worth it.

Barry

Reminds me of the old Saturday Night skit with Steve Martin and Bill Murray
