Eager to assess condition of 29

Recommended Posts

New member.   I recently had my late Father-in-Laws DB delivered to our storage barn.  It has been stored on jack stands for the past 13 years.  It has not been started since it went onto the stands.   The car looks nice, except for fender blemishes from a overcrowded garage, and a broken off cowl light from a son-in-law (me) that did not realize how brittle that pot metal fixture had become.  My first 3 projects will be 1) front tires do not hold air, and will need new tubes, 2) brakes go to floor and will need to see if, where, leaks are coming from, and 3) replace 6v battery while trying to understand positive ground aspect.   Then, after these are solved, manually rotate engine to make sure everything is in order (car was running as it went into garage in 2006).  More to come, and if hope you don’t mind the questions that are about to come.  Best regards ..

Welcome to the forum. BEAUTIFUL car! You can do a search above for brake adjustment/cylinder replacement and bleeding. We have talked extensively about it on the forum.

Welcome!  Looks like you have an *awesome* starting point there. A lot of knowledgeable members here (not me) to help you.

Start by getting an "Instruction Book" for the car. If you already have one, check out the brake adjustment and bleeding instructions.
