I think I will mark the centre, draw crosshairs, water it down with soapy water and slide that sticky decal over the OVER chromed and OVER restored air filter until it is perfectly aligned. Just like the air cleaner factory did before they shipped them to Studebaker and a factory worker put the air cleaner on.
    (sometimes I wish there was a sarcasm font)

    Thanks again Studerich.

      I've really never cared for the 'Over Restored' look....but to each his own I guess!

        But Allen, It looks great.. I've heard MOPAR guys arguing about the most ridiculous things because they knew "Art" was woring the line that day and he did it one way.. I have no time for that kind of criticism.. That is, unless its about my battery hold down..

            There is really no need to go to all that trouble Dad.
            I have an NOS oil bath for a WCFB at my shop. Still in the box, that one is!!!

            (don't ask me 'where' in the shop though- 'cuz I'm not too certain exactly)

              Like I said on the top. (Had too many R1 with weathered decals to question the top placement, besides, the judges liked it there)

                Sebastian thanks for posting that air cleaner, this is a definative answer to my question of sticker placement.

                JDP, ... John does the breather tube hose come off the liike in these pictures?

                BTW, how do you like the little red convertible you sold me? That little tired stock 259ci in the convertible has been transformed into a 299ci R1 with some high flowing 570 heads. a complete with a powershift and HD torque converter and Dana 44. Haven't been able to start it yet with a bad battery (just got a replacement),then the neutral safety switch needed to be adjusted, fuel that would not pump up the the fuel bowl, and a bad carburator (finished re-build the 3506S Carter AFB about 5 today. Hope it will fire tomorrow

                Here is a before and after of the 3506S carburetor I just finished.

                  This 'centered sticker' thread reminded Me of a photo I saw of a '55 Speedster with a ' Speedster Streamer' the car's owner screwed down EXACTLY parallel to the cowl body tag.....It looked 'pretty' that way, and was clearly legible without twisting one's neck....but Studebaker NEVER installed them that way. Hence....'Over Restored' End Of Story!

                    Damn, I wish I remembered that car, but there were just too many. Glad you are fixing her up, keep us up to date. BTW, the tube placement is correct in the photo.

                      John, This particular car came from Tennessee you owned it for about a month or so, cleaned it up a bit and relisted on Ebay. You might recall that it was the first car you released to be delivered by Pegs without having the certified cheque in your hands! I think you got the cheque a few days later.

                      Better get out to the shop and install that sticker, breather tube hose and new carburetor.

                        Nice instruments..

                        I'm doing the R1 super Lark to a 61 Conv, complete with 160mph speedo


                        This looks like she is ready to fly with a set of wings!

                          Did I miss it, or did anyone ask, or state, whether or not, if the Lark and Avanti should or should not, be the same. The original one is still on my Avanti air cleaner and it's just like the NOS one pictured

                            No, I do not believe anyone asked or mentioned about Lark vs Avanti Air Cleaners. Yes, all the same including R1 Hawks.
