Dan, put me on the list for the LH 61/62 fender. Does he have a good RH fender too? A good interior would help my project as well. Now I need a 61 ignition switch or the good guts of one also.

I went back yesterday and managed to find the matching fender. It appears to be in equally good shape. The down side is the old fella wants $500 per fender! They would come as pictured though with trim etc. I didn't really see an interior that would need a total restoration so that may be a non starter. He would have no problem with the ignition switch.

Three issues with it, though: The car is in N. Carolina, been parked outside for two years what appears heavily wooded area and no title.

@Timo 

I received the material samples for your car.  It looks like SMS fabric prices went up from when I requested mine.

When I get the rest of my house items taken care of for the winter I will begin stripping my seats to make patterns.   I will use these patterns and make a test seat cover in leather or vinyl. If the test turns out nice great. If I need to make adjustments it will let me know.

If you decide to have me make your seat covers you will be able to see a sample before we invest any money.  I will give you a materials list that you can order and send to me.

Please take a look at your stitching. See if you can notice what color it is.  Unfortunately it was nylon thread. And nylon fades bad. I will need to search for the appropriate thread color. It should be Tex135 size.  Normally I can purchase individual spoils of good thread from a company called Coats.

I know that feeling well. Sometimes you see a car and just know that it has to belong to you. Thanks for sharing that pic.

Lucky enough to be the first caller on this local 58 in the early 2000's. Complete gentleman that had owned it for 35 years asked me if I wanted him to bring it to my house (30 miles away) to view. My wife and I were looking out the window as he pulled up, we knew the car was not leaving without money exchange and a handshake! He had repainted it in the early 70's, interior is torn but original. Probably a 10 to 20 footer. We love and enjoy this car! We have since had the good fortune to acquire a few more classic Cadillac's which we drive and enjoy!

Well - I finally figured out my "bubbles in the radiator" problem and I thought I would share. It's a little embarrassing but I thought I'd better fess up and hopefully help the next poor sole from going through the same thing. One of the posts below on September 10th gave me the idea to look at the heater core. With my IR temperature gun I quickly realized that the heater hoses were not coming up to normal temperature. So......after I slid the temperature control knob on the dash to "warmer" I achieved proper flow through the heater core and flushed out all the air. The engine cooling system is now operating normally with no bubbles (foam) in the radiator.

I both laughed and cried after my success. I'm glad I figured this out before I took the motor apart but I'm embarrassed it took so long. Well, lesson learned I guess. I hope the above helps someone else along the way....thank you Caddy Forum.
