    Anticipate $3200-$3500 and several months wait.

    All the stainless should clean up, just a matter of labor. Many shops specialize in polishing stainless, especially chrome plating shops.
    I really think the original interior and headliner will clean up with the right specialist. Would hate to go with new, when the original is in great shape, other than the yellowing due to the mold exposure. The original owner had those clear, plastic seat covers that you burned your butt on during the summer, but kept the seats, perfect. The stainless is excellent and all there, never removed and will really pop, once polished. Most of this will be labor and that's what is so expensive during a preservation.

            Thanks for your concern. Had to put this on hold since our 1st grand child was born last week. I will provide updates once I get back on track, although I plan on reaching out to Dave Kinney. Stay safe and many thanks,
            Warm Regards,
            Mark

              I trust everyone on the SDC forum is safe and most importantly healthy. I have finally scheduled my 1st vaccine on Monday and hope that this is the light at the end of miserable tunnel. As for the GH, due to COVID and working my business I have not had the time to pursue the claim until now. I would really like to arrange for a Studebaker Specialist to come and view and assess the car and provide me with a physical estimate of getting her back to her former glory. Of course, I will pay the fee's for this service. You can either post on the thread or send me a PM. As always, your assistance is greatly appreciated. Many thanks and stay safe.

                WoW this hasn't been resolved? The biggest problem I could forsee is the fact that the windows were down allowing the interior to be drenched. If the carpets weren't immediately pulled along with the seats, you may have damage to the floor pans and anywhere else that water can seep.

                I just now saw the pictures you posted before damage of the car....... I'd have lost my mind.

                  Agreed, I think that it should have been dismantled and dried out in the first few days.

                    After speaking with Dave Kinney, he highly recommended to reach out to Corner Stone Restorations which I have done. Ironically they are only 60 miles from where I am located. I have moved my entire collection to a new state of the art warehouse and can't wait to get the Golden Hawk back on the road. In the interim, I have cleaned and detailed to the best of my ability and she looks like the pic's I have posted, but still need a professional like Corner Stone Restorations to do it right. Wish me luck and stay safe.
