Agreed, flushing the system and putting in fresh fluid is a smart move every 3-4 years. Nothing is truly maintenance free!

RogerDetroit, I NEVER said I had moved to D.O.T. 5. I merely asked for information. Fine if you don't care for it, other folks don't seem to feel so strongly though.

I know it's either or and they're not compatable. I've used 5 on bikes with great results.

Okay, I've heard varied opinions on D.O.T.3-4 vs. D.O.T.5 brake fluid used on a '55-'56 with Torsion Leveling. Does it ruin the brake light switch or what? I've always had good luck and a hard pedal with 5. Opinions are all over the place on this. Anyone have the practical skinny on it?

'48 Woodgraining

Greetings Fellow Packardites!
I've seen a Facebook post by Jon Schramm about his '50 Touring Sedan. He posted pictures of the BEAUTIFUL job he's done on woodgraining the interior trim.(I've attached photos of his work.)
I commented on how I would appreciate knowing how he did it(also instant messaged him) but haven't received a response.
So, does anyone have a link or any information on how to achieve a factory looking woodgrain? Thanks in advance!

Thanks for all the returns and advice. Upon looking at things, a Flower Car would require a hearse or limo long wheelbase chassis. Perhaps a Packup is more in line with what I have. I'm familiar with Ross' lovely creations and love them!
My '48 is tucked in bed for the winter here in the Great White North. Pictures will come when Spring arrives. I"m a Tool and Diemaker by trade and have professional background from years past in bodywork and paint.
Forming sheet metal for a Packup won't be a problem. I just want it to look like it came from East Grand Blvd. that way!
I appreciate all the advice and commentary, keep it coming!

"Coach De Fleur"

O.K, I am the proud owner of a '48 22nd series Touring Sedan. Years ago, the previous owners got a '56 Executive but didn't use the '48 as a trade in. Instead they hacked off the rear part of the roof and removed the trunk lid down to the beltline. They used it to haul hay on a farm!
I have all the pieces, but said trunk lid and roof are rusted throught from being stored in a leaky shed for years.I have come to the conclusion that I need to reconstruct it into a "Packup" or(more to my liking) a "Coach De Fleur" or Flower Car.
Any suggestions, wisdom, sarcastic advice or help achieving this goal will be MUCH APPRECIATED!
Please discuss!

22nd series rear bumper web- painted or not?

Question. Were all 22nd series rear bumpers factory equipped with the web painted to match the body color? I'm seeing different opinions on this.
My Pop had a '48 Touring Sedan in '49 and he said his was. Others on Facebook claim they were all chrome and their vehicles weren't called on it by judges at shows.
Some claim that late in the 22nd series the factory left them all chrome. Others claim Packard advertisements show them painted. Anyone have the skinny on this?
