    Well.. once she's running I'll take the time to put something together for TW. I'm willing to bet the other clubs dont help each other out like what i've experienced. Really quite amazing.

      Well.. today was/is a very busy day on Lucy. To bring everyone up to speed.. the carb has now been kitted, all rubber fuel lines have been replaced, replaced the steering gear and jacket today (ended up the bearing in the jacket was shot and the gear box was toast as well). Got the ingnition lock re-keyed and installed, took the radiator to the radiator shop (it sprung a leak), and re-installed the hood. Tonight I plan on installing the vanity and work out a couple glitches that have arisen. the fan always runs, it will go high and low, but never off. The Headlights will not come on. All parking/turn signal lights work. I'm snapping pictures along the way. Will post them as soon as the film is developed. Aside from no interior and the windshield out(waiting on the rubber to show up), she's looking like herself again. Was a real blast, literally, to see the dash light up. BTW Anne, that radio works.. was on high and when i hit the key, was rewarded big band music from the oldies am station here. She'll be on the road in no time. Again, thanks.

          Stellar News, Bob! I have some used switches here if you want.

          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.

              I may take you up on the switches. I'm gonna try cleaning the contacts first to see if that remedies it. I'll let you know as soon as I do.

              Thanks,
              Bob

                      Your exactly right.. once I'm in a better position and Lucy's done, wouldnt mind a 48 or 49 champ.
