Thanks for the advice. I have since read about self-etching primers and you are right that it is not always the right primer to use.

Thanks for sharing your experience. I assume that the bumper inlay and guards on the '37 120C 4 dr. convertibles that came from the factory were painted black/red, I was surprised to see photos of some '37 120C's that were not painted. Were they painted a gloss black, etc. or satin?

I know from previous experience that it is difficult to get paint to stick to a chrome surface. The process I plan to follow is:
1.sand surface (220/320/400)
2.degrease/clean
3.tape
4.Prime with self-etching primer.
5.Paint with epoxy paint.
6.immediately/carefully remove tape.

I will soon attempt to have paint adhere to the newly chromed bumpers on my '37 120. I would really appreciate any suggestions as how best to prep the surface, and primer and paint to use. Thanks

Should the wheel rims be painted the same color as the car (Packard Blue) or did they all come with the same color (maroon) regardless of body color?
Thanks

See photos - I have flat embedded clip on the lower cylinder but do not see how it could hold the upper lock cylinder in place.

'37 120 Door Lock

I am in the process of reassembling my door handles/escutcheon plates, springs, etc, after re-chroming the handles and I am running into a problem reassembling the driver side door lock. All is in place except the lock cylinder will not stay in the fixed slotted cylindrical housing. I followed James Bushnell's writeup on removal but not much help in reassembly. The inside of the lower fixed slotted cylinder had to be sanded to remove deposited copper before the movable cylinder would even fit. Could I have sanded too much? also I do not have a flat spring described in James writeup.

David - in '37 Packard offered two heaters as accessories the DE LUX model hot water heater and the Std. hot water heater. You have the more costly model - mine is obviously not Packard OEM - see attached.
Thanks for your response.

The heater in my '37 120 C sedan convertible is a STD. EA Model L-12. Does anyone know what car/model this heater was made for? I do not believe it is Packard, is it a generic aftermarket model?
