  • Leo's progress

    Spent all day today (really only about an hour or two, the rest of the time was spent drinking coffee and shootin' the sh*t) fabricating and installing one inside quarter panel in Leo the '55 Pres. HT. So far no sewing is involved, just plastic, red and white vinyl, 3M Super Spray adhesive and sissors. Looks pretty good for someone that doesn't know how to do anything except drink coffee and shoot the sh*t (or so I've been told).<G> I made all my inside side panels with ABS plastic, the same stuff the aftermarket air conditioning units are made of. I shouldn't have any trouble with this stuff warping if it gets a little wet unlike upholsterer's blackboard or the lauan board that a lot of the streetrodder upholstery guys use. I had Robert straighten and polish all 5 stainless trim pieces. I have had a dozen C's and this is my first K. Putting a K together is a lot harder than a C, but I think it'll be worth the extra effort.

    Darn Jerry, You still working on Leo? Guess I can't said much, "Muffin" hasn't seen any work on him in years. I think there is only one person on this site that remembers Muffin, it's been that long.
    I'll be going to the Denton meet the 28th, going to bring Leo with you?

            Ebon, good to hear from you. I am not going to be able to make Denton this year. But if I ever get Leo back on the road a lot of you guys from all over this good ole USA are going to be seeing me and Leo show up at the Stude Meets. I will be making a pest of myself and expecting all you good Stude people to furnish me shelter (I'll sleep in a carport, garage, or tool shed, as long as I have a roof above me I'm good). Like a good Studebaker owner, I don't want to waste any of my hard earned monies on Motels when I can spend it wisely on petrol. If everyone is hospitable as Lee & Debbie DeLabarre I'll be in goooooooooood shape.
            thanks, Jerry
            ps: How do you post pix here?

                    Hey-hey! Welcome aboard, Jerry! I've wondered how you were doin'. Heck, if you're still workin' on Leo, I kinda feel better like Ebon, about my "projects".

                    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.
