  • Pictures of what winter brings

    Pictures of what I have been up too this winter. Cleaned & primed.



    Finish paint. Never used a spray gun before.

    Very pretty, John!

    Miscreant adrift in
    the BerStuda Triangle


    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon
    1953 Commander coupe

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

            That's an unusually good-looking frame, John; no pits, etc. Did you use a skim coat of heavy-build primer-surfacer on it, or was it just that nice to begin with?

            Nice work indeed; the pictures of projects underway are greatly appreciated by all, acting as an encouragement! [] [8D] BP
            We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

            Ayn Rand:

                    Bob, the frame was potected with oil & grease so much I had to use a putty knife and laquer thinner to clean. Just back past the trans. cross member. The rear will come later.

                            A couple more pictures of the lower air intake panel.
