  1. Time for an update .. ;-) A willy's Jeep showed up in oktober and i had to do the little "green" thing first so that project is finished now so there is finally time for the Buick ........ Every time i put parts back on the car i am really satisfied to see the results ... Happy to see al the trims are nice and without dents but to fit the trims to the body is sometimes a rough job on the fresh new paint ... But we are getting somewere now. Paul
  2. Hi sixseven this is a simple proces. And it actually works for small parts. The only problem is that the layer of sinc is not so durable . When you put a wrench on the bolts head it will damage the layer of sink. I know there are companies that can plate a bucket of bolts for you in a better quality and a lot faster.
  3. Thanks Wilf. How is your 49 doing ?
  4. Thank you Keith. .... lets finish this thread next year . And hopefully we can drive the 41 in the summer.
  5. Thank you Andrew. Time flies......
  6. Hi Guy's Time for an update about the Buick It took us almost a year to get the Buick back from the paintshop ......... But it was worth waiting .... Don't let a friend doing the paint job if you are in a hurry ... But she is back now and i am really happy with the results . What way to go . So step by step i can build her up and put some chrome trim's on .. window's etc .. Paul
  7. Hi Keith The engine is indeed running nice , we finished the last issues so it can drive now , actually i drove her shortly on the road and on a trailer sitting on a pallet and a sparewheel .... and ik must say , everything feels good, brakes clutch , gearbox , engine . very smooth .......... So . We brought her to the body / paintshop now... and now we wait .......... Great that your wive starts to like the old Buick... With two on board is more fun than alone .. (Lucky me .. my wive likes to help me with several restoration things) But off course that wil probably ends when the Buick is finished and she takes the Buick out for a drive by herselve with friends ............ leaving me home alone .. LOL By the way , i found the right moulding clips for the rockermouldings at restorationpartsspecialties ... he had some ...so that proble is solved too. Paul
  8. Wilfred, Did you overhauled the carburettor ? please do. ignition idem. New spark plugs , coil, cables . filter so everything is brand new and ready to go ... you allready started to "renew" the car . So than you know everything is fresh .. I have also a 49 engine in my 41 Buick .. a few turns of the accelerator pump and it fires right up. good luck Paul
  9. Dry weather overhere last weekend so time to clean the workshop. The Buick had to move out of the Garage ....... and time to make a picture ..
  10. Put the fenders on the body ...... what a job is that ... after nearly 3 years it started to look like a Buick again . I still i am amazed about the construction with the One bolted radiator plate were the whole front unit is mounted on ..... after filling the gap between the radiator moulding and frame with nearly 2 cm i got the front fenders in line . I wanted to fitt al the body work before painting so we know what " the problem parts" are . Most of the work is getting the doors in line and the rear fenders ..
  11. A few weeks ago A friend of mine gave me a visit with his Buick 1941 ......... great car . Actually the first time i had a chance to drive a 1941 Buick .
  12. I placed a video on Youtube with the engine running . https://youtu.be/T-6x8XG880o
  13. Here are some pictures of the progress of the Buick , We had to repair a big dent in the gastank , So we made an opening puled out the dent and welded the tank again . The engine did had its first run ......... And yes we were happy . no big problems just a leak at the radiator and thermosstat housing ..
  14. Now there is an Update finally ... took me nearly 8 months to get back working on the 41 . but we are back........ and yes. it is going very well with the Buck .. The new engine run's the car is nearly ready for its paint job ..... But it seems that someting changed at the forum, how do i upload some pictures now ? ill have to find out.. hope it won't take another year .
