  1. Thanks Lee, after I posted this I got under there and then I felt stupid after seeing the bolts. Got some off today....others got blasted and back at it tomorrow.
  2. Hi guys, it's been pretty quiet on my end for restoring my 42 Cabriolet. I plan to remove my driverside fender since it got banged up good. Looking under and around any of you vets have ideas or suggestions for a good way to remove the fender? As always, thanks in advance, Joey
  3. Beautifully restored Lee! Love it.
  4. 136 were made, you should order the build sheet, it's worth the $20, mines 127, built the day before production stopped. They're beauts n worth saving. How'd it get "dropped" in your lap?
  5. So I got to thinking, does the cabriolets in 42 have the trunk lined with material or rubber flooring? Mines always been bare except the underside of the lid. Any pics? Thanks guys, Joe
  6. Congrats Douglas, what line # is yours, do you know? You should get the build sheet to yours, it's nice to have. Mines 127/136, made 1-14-42, so next day was the last of email.
  7. Thanks guys, this confirms what I thought. Really appreciate your time today. I'll get pics back up here of her soon.
  8. Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've posted on here, haven't done much with my 42 since last fall. The question I post today, it's my understanding that the body is welded to the frame on my 42 Cabriolet....henceforth there is no "frame off" restoration. Someone I've spoken to, who says there completed 100 plus restorations, and wants the job of doing some of the restoration is trying to say otherwise, and I know this Lincoln forum is reliable and knowledagble. Thanks in advance!
  9. Guess that makes 3 buckeyes. Except 2 are in Fla. Lol.
  10. Nice pics, you are further along on your 42 than I am on mine. Thanks for sharing
  11. Hi Lee, give me a call to talk, 407-782-4289, I'm in Volusia county. Thanks
  12. Just a little update, been working on stripping her down for almost a month now...sorry for the sideways shots....engine & trans should come out in about 4 weeks...meeting with body shops this week.
