  2. 1932 BUICK

    I DONT THINK THERES ANY PARTS CARS AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME,IT WOULD TAKE A PARTS CAR TO RESTORE THIS ONE,ITS A LITTLE PRICY SO I THINK ILL JUST SET ON IT FOR NOW, I REALLY DONT NEED ANOTHER CAR,I GUESS IM JUST A JUNK DEALER,I CAN WALK BY 5 NICE CARS AND THE ONE THAT ALWAYS ATTRACTS MY ATTENTION IS THE ONE THAT NEEDS EVERYTHING MY LATE WIFE USE TO SAY THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG WITH ME I GUESS SHE WAS RIGHT, DAVE

  7. preservation - Buffing Patina

    I THINK I WOULD START WITH A GOOD CLAY BAR AND SOAP,ID CLAY IT TWICE THEN GET SOME NUMBER 7 AUTO POLISH AT O REILLYS AND POLISH IT REAL GOOD.AS FAR AS THE RUST GOES USE SOME METAL PREO AND A FINE SCOTCH BRITE PAD ON THE RUST ONLY AND POLISH RIGHT OVER IT, THATS ME, YOU MAY CHOOSE TO DO IT DIFFERENTLY, DAVE
  8. LOOKING VERY GOOD IF IT WHERE ME ID CLEAN THE RUST OFF AND THEN METAL PREP IT A COUPLE OF TIME AND USE PPG DP40 OR DP50,THAT STUFF WILL SEAL ANYTHING,AFTER DRYING REAL GOOD YOU CAN TAKE A PICE OF 40 GRIT SANDPAPER AND ROUGH IT UP AND PUT BODY FILLER RIGHT OVER IT,THIS STUFF IVE BEEN USING FOR MANY YEARS,I DID THE REAR FENDERS ON MY MOON ROADSTER ABOUT 8 YEARS AGO AND STILL NO RUST COMING THREW,KEEP IT OFF YOUR HANDS CAUSE ITS TOUGH TO GET OFF, DAVE

  10. driving lights

    hello everyone I want to thank everyone who replied,when I said inexpensive I was meaning at the time not now,pilot raqy blights are beautiful but they don't belong on a devaux,i thought maybe there was a light of this period for the low priced cars,pilot rays are beautiful but to classy for my vehicle, I was just hoping they made possibly a single light that turned for generic vehicles, thanks dave
  11. driving lights

    WHAT I WAS HOPING WAS THERE WAS AN INEXPENSIVE ONE (THEN) THAT WOULD BE RIGHT ON THE LOW PRICED CARS,PILOT RAYS ARE NICE BUT NOT QUITE RIGHT ON A 1931 DEVAUX I WAS HOPING SOMEONE KNEW OF A LOW PRICED LIGHT OF THAT VINTAGE,THANKS TO EVERYONE DAVE
  12. driving lights

    in the late 20s early 30s they made a set of driving lights for the classics that turned with the front wheels(forgot what they where called) does anyone know if they made a similar set for the inexpensive cars possibly with one light if yes can you post a picture if possible thanks dave
  13. Info wanted 1914 Premier Z2 touring

    I believe ken Sorensen in Pasadena cailfornia has a 1911 premier,if I remember right it was restored in the 50s by Harold hoe,was green with beige frma and suspension now I believe its maroon, I don't know if he received all the literature or not but Harold hoe had about the most premiere literature available, dave
