Does the Majestic Patina look close to the darker green.  Or is it to dark

Hi guys,

I always loved the cool ads Cadillac put out in the fifties and sixties. I also thought that Jay Leno has the coolest artwork in his big dog garage. So I took the original ad for my 61 Caddy Fleetwood, high resolution scanned, changed the color of the car in the add to the color of my car and then had it printed on canvas with the size of 120 cm x 90 cm (my wife didnít allow any bigger in our living room ... turned out nice. What do you think?

Have you finished sanding and buffing the paint?


Cobalt Blue looks awesome on a 54-56 FW...


Congrats!

The shop and I are having a hard time figuring out where these go back to. We assume they are around the steering column, but cant figure out where or how.

I thought those go in the trunk...

The readers will have to excuse me: I don't remember exactly what I did remove in a chronological order. Here are views from the "A" pillar. They are not very nice as you can see. Some metal had to be cut to weld good steel. It was necessary to remove the reinforcement of the pillar as it is weld over the front floor. All that happened in 1991.
In between, I got in touch with a US vendor who claimed he has the exact replacement parts for my car. As I don't believe easily such promises, I ordered the repair patches for the front floor. What a deception when I got them! I was good steel, but a crude and pale imitation of the correct form. I never used it; instead, I used the metal to repair other parts. I did myself the patches for the floor with the proper details.

It was clear to me that the rear fender had to be removed to replace the trunk floor and the floor under the rear seat. I began the task by removing the outside rocker panels. The view was very discouraging to be honest.
