  • WTD: Stude woodgrain photos

    Greetings,

    I have a post on the Studebaker newsgroup about my DIY woodgrain paper.

    http://groups.google.com/group/rec.a...e?lnk=lr&hl=en

    I have offered to mail one member of the group some samples I made so that he can post his honest opinion of it.


    What I would like to do is duplicate the original Studebaker woodgrain as closely as possible using my methods and then scan it to a CD. I could e-mail the file to anyone who could put it on a CD and take it to a color copier to make a print. Color copiers have permanent inks and you can put your choice of varnish finish over them.

    There are some size restrictions. Color copiers do up to 11" x 17". Larger pieces have to be done with two prints that are bookmatched.

    If you can e-mail me some pictures of original woodgrain I would appreciate it.

    Need to know which woodgrain you want ? 62 Lark, 63 Hawk, 64 Hawk. I think there were two shades in 63 Hawks too.

      JDP,

      I haven't been here long enough to know if most of you here also read the newsgroup. I had the same question asked there.

      Here is a link to my answer and I included pictures of my woodgrain art work.

        The radio repair work looks nice. Thing is, save for a GT Hawk dash insert or maybe the the facia trim on '66 dashes, I can't see how anything I could print out would work on compound curved surfaces such as are found in most other Studebaker applications.

        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.
