1937 Buick Model 48: "Frame-Up" Restoration with lots of photos!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

 

I thought you would like to see my progress on my '37 Buick!  I began the restoration January 11, 2017 and am now about 6 1/2months into it.  At this point the chassis is done, the body is in the paint shop and I'm busy doing all the hardware and fasteners.

 

I hope you enjoy the thread as much as I have doing the restoration!  Please follow along and ENJOY!

Attaboy:

I was able to polish and re-use most of my dash parts. (Ivory knobs). Call Bob's Automobilia.  He sometimes has the knobs and crank handle knobs.  The larger wood grained panels were all sent out and sand blasted, then wood grained by Bob Kennedy in CA.  All the rubber parts that were replaced, which was ALL the rubber parts, were ordered from Steele Rubber.  Everything from the smallest door handle grommet to the window seals, vent window seals....  all fit perfectly.  

 

Here's the section building the driver's door:  Lot of rubber parts in there:

 

 

 

Here is the latest update, installing the interior door panels:
