Mid Century Cadillac Discussion / Body and Paint in Chicago?
« Last post by Jerry on September 17, 2018, 06:10:32 PM »
Hi everyone!

I'm in the suburbs of Chicago, and looking for recommendations on quality shops in the area. I'm looking for honest work at reasonable rates. If anyone is local, or familiar with the area, do you have any recommendations?

Here's a quick summary of what I would likely need:

- cleanup of underside of the car (not sure if I will have this done, or tackle myself)
- metalwork for body
- paint body, engine bay, trunk, wheel wells
- chrome
- weatherstripping/seals
- interior (could also be done separately?)

A shop that is willing to work with me, and let me do as much as possible myself, would be ideal.

Thanks everybody!
Jerry

Thanks guys!

Phil: The car is factory salmon and ivory top. I plan to keep same combo.

Bob: Yes, I plan to have my upper-level students help with some items. We pulled the driveshaft today, and drained the engine and trans. oils. We'll be pulling the engine and trans. shortly. Now I need to find a good body shop!

The sun actually made an appearance of sorts in the afternoon which was nice. All in all it was a great show although by noon, only around 500 cars showed up. I think a lot of people kept their hotel reservations but drove their family cars to the show.

61CDV, it's a view I never get tired of. Here are a few interesting facts on the drive from our place in Calgary to Radium Hot Springs. We start off on the 165 mile drive at 3,600' then by Banff are up to 4,600' before reaching 4,800' when we turn off HWY 1 and head West on HWY 93, From there we climb up to 5,700' before dropping down to 3,800 as the highway heads south between ranges. We then climb back up to 4,900' as we go over the last range in the Canadian Rockies and head down to Radium nestled into the Columbia Valley at 2,800'. Radium is located in what is called the Rocky Mountain Trench which divides the Rocky Mountains to the East from the Columbia Mountains to the West. The distance as the crow flies is just 90 miles from our place but all the toing and froing in and around mountains really adds to the distance. Even with all the low cloud and mist it was a good drive.

Here are a few photos from the show.
