  1. Nice pile of stuff,I imagine you are like a kid in a candy store on Christmas Day. Glad it all worked out for everybody.The new owner is elated with his new Stude. The haulers did well.Looks like everyone is a winner.Very rare that everyone is happy Now go back and play Ken
  2. Use the sealer, It makes all the difference in the world..
  3. I see we got the phone number issue squared away. Good luck to both party's... Ken
  4. Dynaflash, l sold my 1930 Studebaker Pres. Thursday.It took two and a half years. AACA forums,ClassicCars.com,Hemmings,generated over 20000 views,with less than 12 inquires. I worked with the buyer for seven months,he paid me asking price plus.for waiting for him to take of his business. He,s happy. I have mixed emotions.It took me six years to build.I did it to see if I could get an AACA Grand National award, got junior and senior on first attempt. I really don't care for the crap you have do to get Grand National Status..so I lost interest. The right guy will come along,the catch is how much time you want to wait. I have never lost money on any car I ever did.I do 99 percent of the work myself. If you do not have a pretty fair skill set and have to "farm it out"you are allmost guaranteed to lose money Your conversations lead me to believe you are in a struggle against time and money. I hope it works out for you. Only you and your wife can make that call. All the best. Ken
  5. Just sold a car yesterday.We used a wire transfer . I was amazed how easy it was.
  6. Dep5, I can't quite figure out who or what your beef is about. It sure looks likes a fine car to me. Maybe you can explain it so we can understand what upset you so much
  7. I agree that Silver Solder is the way to go .lf the cracks don't happen to run to the end of the part you need to use a Dremel tool cut off wheel to cut a grouve thru the metal so the Silver Solder will flow thru metal Be prepared to spend a lot of time with a file and sandpaper to get it right, Ken
  8. How does one become a senior member???
  9. What's your location in La. I live in Houma, Ken
  10. MATT YOU ARE WRONG!!!!! I sold an oil pump to a man in Norway a few years ago My bank did not want to use a wire transfer for some reason. We agreed to Western Union,I used a local bank"not mine". He sent the funds ,I sent the pump, deal done. I paid no fees at all. Ken
  11. Checkout TCP Global in Duncan SC. I used single stage urethane on my STUDE. Very pleased. If you paint this summer use highest temperature reducer you can get. Use sealer before you paint top coat.
  12. I drove my 64 Wildcat about 120 miles this weekend. Check out the post in general discussion to check out our outing Saturday. This was a mini tour put on by Lagnaippe from Houma,La If you "uplanders"every wondered where your rain and snow ends up ,check out the spillway pictures. Ken

  14. Wow two minutes ago I just posted my200t/h ,I was so proud now I am truly humbled. good job! Kaiser
  15. I used Tomneau cover material on my 1930 Studebaker,not hard to get 84" wide. Smooth pattern looks like original to me,although yours looks a little more defined.
  16. I just noticed on1957 road master post that the ad said it is a 130" wheel base (bottom of picture,left side)
  17. John, Long time since I heard from you. At this time I have a deposit on the Stude. lf this doesn't work out I,ll start all over.Your input over the last year or so was very valuable to me, Thanks again Ken
  18. I charge the battery with a 6 volt battery charger
