    1st stage of painting today. Small parts, gas door, headlight rings, vent doors, grille filler, lower air scoop, rear bumper gravel guards and side grilles. Plus hood and trunk. Tomorrow car. Such a huge step done and a turning point to reassembly! What a long trip.

      Your Hydrovac looks different than mine. Is there more than one style for disc brakes?

        Yes mine is not correct from what I understand. 64 was slightly different. Mine is earlier I believe. I'm not sure of the functional difference. If it's for drum brakes I know the stroke length is different. It seems to work fine.

            The disc brake Hydrovac has a longer snout. The attached pic is of a professionally restored '64 Hawk with disc brakes. Studebaker used it to provide higher line pressure needed for the Bendix/Dunlop disc brakes. If yours works fine, then good.

                There is a daunting amount to do now but the mind numbing incessant sanding is over. Now the enjoyable reassembly begins. Finally I can use all the parts I've gathered over the last 3 1/2 decades.

                    Signs of life. Still a long way to go.
