    Just thinking aloud but the trials and tribulations of owning a Studebaker can sometimes present some significant overwhelming problems to overcome. Now that the lens problem has beed solved we can go on to more less perplexing solutions to what ails these antiques. Thank you all for your ideas . Enter this topic into the archives. cheers jimmijim

    Cold, but clear. Too cold to take the wrappers off a Stude. Clear enough to make me want to, though

    Sweet! Thanks, Johnod. I have a "deficiency" list I keep working on and that just crosses another one off my list My rebuilt 6V radio won't sing, my JDP seat cover needs an install, my headliner has a few wrinkles and my back window is a bit corrupted. I have replacements. Question is: Do I just drive and enjoy, then wait until I want another refresh, or do I bite the bullet and make it pretty? Up here, the weather wil determine. Cheers!
    I dunno what it's like there , but the weather is really sucking here today.

    I made my first set while restoring my 1953 coupe & got requests for more; so I made up some kits. I started selling them at the Cedar Rapids International meet & will have the kits again at the South Bend May Swap Meet as well.

    I will be out of town for a while, but can answer the letters and send them out when I return next month.
    I'll send you some cash, and you can mail when you return.

    Dave I'll get a set for you too, I can drop them off when in Barrie.

    I won't be vending, but I will try remember to bring some along, I will be camping at the fairgrounds in site # 46.
    I will also have some of my hood supports there for sale for Avantis and various Studes.

    I want a kit, Deaf Mute. Won't be at SB in May but hope to be at the Int'l in July. Any chance I'll see you there?

    I used the bottom of a vitamin bottle, cut little circles out with shears. For red I used a piece of ruby glass I had on hand (from another hobby).

    Go to Office Depot and buy the colored index binder flaps and use the green and red plastics.

    A possibility might to use a 1955 Thunderbird dash "jewel" set which includes 2 red plastic inserts and 2 green turn signal inserts.
    They would probably have to be sized to fit the Hawk. Part number from CASCO is JS-1 and cost is $5.00

    You could be right, I'm guessing, I don't have the lens.
    I did see the top of a head and shoulders shampoo looks like it might work for blue.

    Thats a good idea, any thoughts on the high beam blue?
