i debated replying to this. So i waited a few days to calm myself. Why do you feel it is within your rights to denigrate other peoples vehicles? A disappointing one year anomaly.
Well i like the car, and think it is worth reworking. If that is offensive to you please keep your opinons to yourself.

Hi everyone i appreciate the advice and i will make sure i understand any work being done before i sign on the dotted line. For me, i like the pattern on the seats. For my first time through i am looking at this as a nice car i can drive on a sunny day with the top down. i have no illusions of a perfect period piece. So i hope there is no offense taken but i do have a budget in mind and this is a solid car i can make nice and enjoy.

Scott's 1951 Packard Convertible build

Well here we go.
I have worked on cars most of my life, out of necessity most times but now this one is for fun.
I acquired a 1951 model 250 convertible as a project car. Once I got it I realized I paid to much. But I really like the lines of the car and it is pretty solid so have to think that money doesn't count anymore. it has already been spent.
Car came with most of the chrome and most of the interior parts, convertible roof needs replacing, windshield showed up broken (which was a surprise). Regardless I really love the car.
So I have pulled all the chrome and stainless off getting it ready to strip down to the metal to see what needs replacing. Seats and interior are out. I have attached a couple of documents i am using to get quotes. One showing the vehicle the other the seats. Comments are welcome and advice is most defintely needed.
Thanks for reading.

Hi everyone,
as this is my first go around doing this much renovation on a vehicle i wanted to check with the group for a little advice. I have a 1951 convertible and i am quoting getting all the seats re-done.
Got a quote of $2500, that seems high to me but again no experience with this.
How does that read to you guys?

thanks everyone. I have been speaking with quite a few of the local car guys and most are recommending replacing all the glass with newer safety glass if possible so that it there is an accident the glass won't be "shards"

Hello all, i am new to the forum. I recently purchased a 1951 250 convertible and the windshield and sidelight window need to be replaced. Looking on line i see these "green glass" aftermarket windows and windshields. Does anyone have experience with these? Do they fit?
