This letter explains the program I remember reading it before and one salesman I knew who was owner of local dealership owned by two brothers . The dealer ship later sold Studebakers was a family owned and run business

Brake drum spring

Was looking at brakes on front of Randy's Caribbean saw grove relief machined in outside of drum and reminded me that a lot of GM cars back in day had a coil spring installed (spring looked like the type which were used to close screen doors) on out side of drum was told it was to aid in cooling and stop noise. Just a general question curiosity from my old memory of cars.

As I work on this project consider myself lucky as Randy had taken care of most of Caribbean only parts. I find things I need are common like door stop limiters. Only trim piece that I found missing was the stainless trim for snaps that is located on body near trunk. Thanks to help from Packard info members have located what I need.
While working under dash on wiper drives job that bothers my old neck and back noticed the connector ducts (466337) from heater to defroster vents are missing. The good thing about this part of job is there are no seats in place so I can lay on floor without the seat taking space I need to lay down on.
Did track down guy who wound up with a lot of stainless trim Randy had off site which was picked up by guy who was helping family to dispose of stuff.
These were stainless side trim parts some are for Patrician 4 dr which I will not need if anyone needs pm me approx length I will see if I have it.
Now need source of clips (447820)for what Moulding floor side sill I call (rocker panel trim moulding)
This more than I planned to say as my dog is waiting to go go for her second walk

I have a real live update on Randy's/ my Caribbean managed to organize and move things in my garage to start actual work on project. Have been working on going over parts I had gotten from Randy's home after his passing with the cooperation of his Daughter who was extremely helpful under the sad conditions of her father and sisters. Any way got parts and car in my garage now had to track down some parts that got hauled away by mistake from one of Randys storage sites. So far have been lucky or blessed maybe Randy is still following his project and trying to keep me on his desired path.
Took a while to get someone to move car located local guy who did excellent job and was very careful while loading and unloading car. He made sure hood and trunk and door were secured. One of last things Randy told me was to make sure hood was tied down before moving as latch was not installed and that a replacement hood would be hard to find. Had to clean car as quite a bit of dust and dirt were on I washed and cleaned. Started installing parts I have. The learning process is on going as I was not involved in removing any parts. For me its like putting a puzzle together without having the picture of finished picture. My prior training slash experience is limited to Studebakers and my Clipper . I tell people the Caribbean is my Clippers older rich uncle. Have been telling my friends I will spend this winter in the Caribbean.
Really happy about chrome and stainless trim pieces have all I need except short piece of stainless on front fender and trunk lock handle with key.

From own observation in this area when new cars were factory undercoated underside of rear wheel wells were and lot of front also done which may have been dealer undercoated for protection and sound absorbing. My grandfather would not take a new car dealer undercoated until the bolts were tighten prior to undercoating he was a old time guy with strict standards who bought a lot of new cars from the semi rural area he was from
