Time to start the winter projects. The one big benefit of living in a country where you can’t enjoy driving for 5 or so months and you can focus on repairs and improvements to your favourite rides.
This year I’m doing the doors on the ’54 Champion. I have new door trim boards land will be transferring the old vinyl to them. I will also be replacing the front door seal. It got destroyed when I positioned the door too far forward and it crushed the upper part of the seals. I may attempt to install a new style radio but, that may not happen.
Second, I am starting the build on a 289 V8 using components from a ’63 Jet Thrust engine. The JT block was destroyed so now I’m going to use a later model 259 bare block to put together a new JT 1841
My third project has nothing to do with Studebakers unfortunately. I have a ’74 Dodge half ton that has been repainted and needs it’s trim re-installed. I won’t be covering that on this blog.
Hope you find it interesting.
