Restore my buick electra 1969 :)

Recommended Posts

 The work looks very good. My '69 has the disk brake option as well, and my rotors are still good, but I do drive it somewhat. These disks really pull the car down from speed, the finned drums from the late 60's cars work well, but the disks are great.

 Keep up the good work!

hello, here is the result of work :).
after having sanded the hood, I spend a hinge Phosphate (green) and after a white primer while waiting to pass the black finish.
so I start to disassemble the left front fender and I realized that we must first remove the front bumper

so I remove the bumper and tomorrow (normally all day) I disassembled the wing and I start preparing :)

hello, so here is news of today's proceedings.
This morning I finally managed to dismantle the wing (almost 20 screws) and then I had a surprise.
was the time the first owner had double hide a key inside the wing! :)

then I sanded the entire interior of the wing and the bottom of the wing (side road) .I start scoring round rust holes and can be seen with the markings I made there had already been repaired.

and next weekend I started to cut the metal sheets to replace and move the phosphating paint and the white primary.
So here today :) (its made me pray when same all day :))

I have a quick question, the most in the metal circled in red is it original? next to it is the master cylinder with something else.
may be it is planned.
thank you ;)1 (2).jpg2 (2).JPG

In the red area is the steering column and the steering box.  Not too far away is the brake proportioning valve.   Since you have ready access, have you laid it back in place to see if it was meant to be like that?

Sebastian, that are you've marked looks like where the hood hinges mount. Its' hard to reference it visually, as your car is apart, and mine isn't, but that is what I think it is.
