  3. I am helping a mate with the restoration of a 29 Buick Standard He is missing the 2 brackets that come up behind the front door pillars and follow the curve of the cowl This bracket doubles up as a windshield support Does any one have a pair to spare or I will have to fabricate a couple
  4. Aunty Norm said to me that they look long They are just under 4 inches by 1 3/4 wide You need a good light with the idiots that we have to contend with
  5. Rich, If you set every thing up with your body on the chassis then remove it for painting I can't see any major problems as it will be going back with the same spacers etc
  6. They are both originals Anthony The "Senior " was on the car when I got it and the crank hole cover came from Dick Perry I did reproduce the word Senior for my old mate Terry Carol Aka "Aunty Norm" for his Senior sedan I don't think that I could do another one as the arthritis in my hands is getting worse There was a lot of work in making it using small Jewelers files to get the shapes of the letters
  7. Even folks from the Land Down Under have been worried for all of you Bush fires are scary things As you all know we have our share in Aust. So glad and relieved to hear that prayers have been answered For many the loss and devistation is cruel Four years ago the little town of Yarloop where I was born was raised to the ground and I still feel the pain Take care everyone 2020 can only get better (We Hope)

  10. Thank you all for your kind comments I am just an ordinary bloke that is trying to bring this beautiful and rare old car back to life When I say rare there was only 250 of these cars that were bodied by Holden Bodybuilding Co in Adelaide South Australia I know of 8 and 1 of them is in England As I have stated before without the help and advice and encouragement that I have received from so many on these forums the old girl would probably still be a heap of rusty panels When I see the achievements that Ian Greenlaw and The restoration of Daphne the Dodge, like you guys have done fantastic jobs and that's what gives us all encouragement to push on when we can't find that special part Well we have to improvise so we make it or have it made Being part of this BIG Dodge Brothers Family is very special
