    Thank you Dave. I'll contact him today. Gotta make it to Hershey sometime.

    I haven't found any Pontiac specific sill plates. Mine are a mess. LOOKS like Chevy might fit but haven't checked it out yet and the ones The Filling Station lists are stamped with a Chevrolet logo. Anyone know of any reproductions around?

    Had to get a taste of how it will look before I put the doors away until the rest of the car is painted.

    It was just a thought when you mentioned yours. Mine came with a trunk that I would like to continue to use but I don't care for the way the spare mounts behind the trunk. It won't be too long now and I'll have to decide. What I'm going to do.

    That fender well might be a good idea for me. One or more of the previous owners must have had some depth perception issues because both right fenders have experienced some abuse, especially the front. Haven't finished working on it yet.

    Thanks Rob. I think that's what I'll do. It might be fun to see if anyone ever comments. From all the renditions other than what Reid has found, it looks to me like they have been done like yours. It's not going to be a points car but I do like to stay close to original.

    That's the way I'm going to go, do the first course. The doors have the black on. Waiting for it to cure a bit more before masking and putting on the blue. I can't say it's definitely Cheshire blue but it's as close as I could get to the remnants I found. I'll post a photo when the doors are done. Just read your revised post. Have to think about that for a bit. Paint is on for either way.

    Rob, Reid, one thing I still can't tell for certain is the entire reveal painted or is just the first portion closest to the window?

    Rob, Reid, I was all set to go all blue, Cheshire that is, until I read Tinindian's post. My car is/was 2021, Cheshire blue and black with Tacoma cream striping. Guess that means I SHOULD paint the reveal black. Think about it overnight. I'm about to do the door trim and the reveal would need to be done at the same time. Thanks for all the information. Rob, that 32 is one BEAUTIFUL car.

    I keep going back and forth on one item of the car's paint scheme. Some renditions and photos show the first "course", I'll call it, around the side windows painted black while other illustrations don't. It would be a lot easier painting if it's a no. ☺️I'm getting ready to put some color on the car and that would be the first item if it is supposed to be so.

    Crank pulley oil leak woes

    This may or may not pertain but thought I'd relate my experience. As I've been going through my '30 I've been replacing seals and whenever possible, with modern versions. Tried that on the timing cover also but noticed a leak so took it apart again and replaced the modern version with the cork version from Olson Gaskets. Still leaked. Tore it down again and realized that there was no oil around the pulley or the hole where the crank comes through. Pretty sure it was the cover gasket. I left the cork gasket in and added a second gasket to the cover (I see that may be a no-no) and so far no leaks. It hasn't run for more than several minutes so I can't swear it's ok but my fingers are crossed.
  14. Looking for a good right front fender for my '30 6-30B Custom Sedan. The one I have is usable and will go on the car but it has been repaired more than once and is proving to be very difficult to repair the repairs. Thought I'd see what's out there. Does anyone know if that fender was shared with other years, makes or models?
