I myself would rather wait on a quality repair than have it repaired half ass 2 or 3 times.

I'm sure Ed wants it out of his shop, but a slow, diligent repair takes time. I watch the progress of my car everyday on dropshots, I've seen what Ed has done with my car and I am very lucky to have him doing the restoration. In addition to being a master at his craft, he's a pretty good guy to hang around with as well. Jen and I had a good time hanging out with Ed and Kandy in Albany, and can't wait until Ohio.

Thats the first generator I have seen on a 63.

Let me know how you make the rubber boot for the heater duct. Make 2, and I'll pay for the materials. I'm picking my 63 Combo up Fri, and spending the week-end putting parts back on

that would be your standard 100 amp alternator made by Delco just for ambulances. I don't recall if it's 100 or 90 weights a ton and don't put out much, but in 63 if was a joy to have. the round box is the mechanical flasher for the top lights. on this car everything is mounted on the firewall. the boot I had to get new 100 bucks from a man I can send you his address if you want it. not rubber but hard plastic. all I could find threebassclan@embarqmail.com they have caddy stuff for sale. got things from them a few times thay sell a lot on e-bay.

as soon as we can get the inner fenders back on we can build the battery holders. you might have seen in the second video we re routed the cables and put on new ends. we have changed the front spring from the new stock caddy that was in it to CC springs. they raised it up 1 3/4 inches as it sits. I forgot to measure it when it was together so we'll just have to see if it sets level. the car is so much one piece on the body and we are doing a solid color that I think I'll paint it apart and then assemble. I went to put some stuff inside and realised it went over the green. the fenders go over the black but over the green on the cowl to. the chrome vent needs to go on before you put the fenders in place. but it needs be painted under it. so I'll hang the doors, put the fenders on saw horses, the hood back on the car and paint it apart them see if we can remember were the 5 gl bucket of screws and bolts go. the thing I'm trying to figure out now is the rubber seals on the inner fenders were stapled on the steel. how we going to put them back on so no one can tell it's been changed. I don't have that big a stapler handy. this older 60's stuff is different to work on.
