Worked really hard, cut out the last bit of rust, and landed the rear quarters, ĎAí pillars, and window frame onto the fire wall and floor of the sedan.  Iíve waited a couple years to do this.

If you do your own body work, I can certainly help with tips and photos. You will learn a lot and expend a lot of energy but will be in charge of the resukts and save a lot of money. I chickened out on painting mine but I work out of a two car garage in a residential neighborhood and didn't want to get over spray all over my garage etc. The primer pretty much cleans up as dust but I was worried the paint might be different. I have a friend with an acreage who is set up for painting so I bought the supplies and he painted it for $2,000.

If I had his space I would have tried painting it myself. I got fairly good at painting as I applied primer and sanded it off many times over.

If you aren't planning on running in cold weather, it's really not necessary. My heat riser was stuck closed and fell apart when I tried to unstick it, so I bought a blank filler from someone here.

I have not posted an update in a while so I thought I should.
I have done nothing.  I have barely cleaned my garage or put tools away since the last time I posted an update.
I did fill my shielding gas tank. I have not hooked it up yet.
It needs to be warmer.  I tried lighting a fire in my barn a while ago but I could not get it over 40 degrees.

Yesterday I found a new area body shop willing to do old cars.  I asked for info out of curiosity.  He said $10,000 and maybe 7 months to do the body and paint.  I still want to do it myself.  I will not learn if I do not try.

Mid Century Cadillac Discussion / Re: 1956 Correct exhaust hangers

I wondered about this bracket also as Iím in the midst of replacing my exhaust on my 55. I made a bracket out of a hanger I had. Since our Cadillacs can use the U type clamp I was able to clamp it to the muffler and extension pipe joint.

Keep Cruzin,
