I've had a slight cold since I got back from buying the car, so I really havent looked over the car much at all other than a few breif trips to get an idea of what parts I have,
I've also been trying to figure out how the heck I am going to approach the car.
I want to do media blasting, and I want to do the entire car.
I have some problems to deal with those. The window uses a seal, and although the seal seems ok, what happens if it rips. The thing is 45 years old, I have a feeling I may up a creek without a paddle if I try to remove the windshield and rear window. I've found some blogs with debonair owners and they do have emails, so I think I may somehow attempt tot alk to the owners and ask if seals are still available there.. The seals should be the same for the entire run of the cars im betting.
Considering the size of the car, I have to go clear some room and reorganize my other garage which is basically storage.m and clean off a big section of rack so i can dedicate it to storing the mass amount of parts that will be coming off the car. I also need to remove all th engine blocks along the one wall, the cherry picker, and then all my millwright tool boxes from the other side so I can actually work on this beast lol Right now, I have 3inches from the garage door to the bumper and half a inch from the bumper to the cherry picker. with a foot on the passenger side and not much more on the drivers.
I went and visited a friend who has been getting into upholster today and we talked for a bit. He seems to think we can do the interior, so it's worth a try. At bare minimum im only out on the cost of material.
I was checking out the bench seat and the foam is prety much shot in it. You push down and you hear a crunch and there isnt any return in it lol. I'm going to try and not sit in it anymore so I have an idea of how it's suppose to be shaped.
I also took a look at the carbuetors today. Both carbs are seized up
I believe with some kroil, I can get em worked free again. It looks like I have a gasket set for the one that is partially disassembled.
Anyhow, there are a lot of things I need to figure out. Stripping it down is the easiest part of them, but trying to work with the limited space i have is going to be very challenging.
