  • '63 Hawk engine detailing questions

    I'll be reassembling my '63 Hawk soon after the repaint.

    What direction does the air cleaner snorkel point? Where is the air cleaner decal applied?

    Where is the Battery warning decal applied?

    Does anybody have any pictures of a detailed '63 Hawk engine compartment.

    Thanks!

    Dick Definetely point it straight to the right fender, which will put the spot where the old decal was (if remaining) directly forward. I see so many bozos with air cleaner to the fan, to the left etc. and always get a good laugh! I don't remember if the Batt. warning goes on the inner fender by batt. or not, I'll check some photos. Hawks do not get "Caution Fan" decals. I've got the Air Cleaner decals, Studebaker Battery decals, Battery Warning and Studebaker Anti-Freeze Tags, I think that's about it for a Std. 289 engined Hawk. I know you don't want to busy-up the windshield with a "We stand behind the Quality" gold circle thingy sticker!

            Still sanding . We plan to finish blocking it out this week. Shoot primer on Friday. Ready for the paint booth the following weekend. I'll try to get some "in progress" pictures today.

            This is a great education for me. Learning a lot.

            I thought this car was very straight (and it was), but it's amazing the little flaws that show up block sanding with a long board.

                Hope the paint job turns out great with all the work your putting into the Hawk.[8D]

                If you plan on selling the car when all done, let me know.
                I'm still looking for a clean GT Hawk.

                Thx,
                Jerry

                    Wow, back when I was working my way thru college working in a body shop, running a long board manually was not educational, it was tough. I really appreciate what you are doing. I would need a long board about 6' long so that it would touch in front and back.
                    Keep up the good work.

                        Here's a couple of pictures I took this morning...





                        We're on target to have it in primer by the end of the day Friday.

                            Ah yes now you know why body shops charge so much huh Dick.
                            It aint all chocolate and roses is it. Looking good though you can be proud when its all finished and shiny no waves or wrinkles in it.
