Hello everyone, I have a small question.
if you know all the Electra 225 Custom 1969 was equipped with air conditioning?
because I do not know if it's a becaufe was sold new in France, but I do not have air conditioning .I have therefore not the same fan assembly and I have a fan has 4 palles instead of 5.
thank you

Airconditioning was an option in 1969.  I have seen a few Electras without it.  Mostly convertibles though.  You probably do not have a fan clutch either then.  I think that is easy to find a 5 blade fan and the clutches are still available new.

Good evening, ok thank you for the reply john;).
I can continue without asking me that question then :).
a propeller 4 palles was not for the 350? becaufe on my 430 I do not ais the propeller 5 palles but the 4 paddles (which is smaller), it is original too?
thank you

Now there's gonna be trouble!  LOL.. Be careful with that thing.  It will take your skin off your hand, and it will warp body panels if used incorrectly.

A small blaster like that will be no problem:  keep it moving and blast at an angle; use new and sharp sand; put your hand behind the panel and move when you detect any heat build up.

hello, here are some pictures of the early restoration of my buick (starting in September 2015).
I board not remove the chassis because I had no place, so I try to do the same thing but with the chassis set.
everything was a sand sheet metal then after I put a primer phosphating and white primary

for the bottom I did the same thing but in addition there is a rust black paint and a UNDERBODIES (blaxon) .I do deu into two parts with the front and back because I did not asser place too :).

I made piece by piece (inside the box, with underbody frame, chest, right side doors, doors left sides, now the hood that I have to finish), and after I continued

by the front wings, wheel, brake ....
and I want to know if I can find a restoration kit for front brake?
thank you

Fantastic job. Impressive body work, and great skills.

Keep going and thumbs up
