The dashboard installation went easily, so yet another step done. Next was to install the windshield after readying the gasket for it. I had saved what I though was a good pliable original gasket about five years ago, but after spending a few hours cleaning it and applying bedding compound, that it was a couple inches too short. I decided to let it soak overnight in a bucket with Go-Jo, and see if it was just because it had shrunk. The next day I had no better luck, and was just getting frustrated, so I went back to the Desoto where I had the gasket stored. Seems someone had dumped several other gaskets there also, and upon comparison, found I had been trying to fit the wrong one. I found the one that I had thought was a good one all those years ago, but after spending several hours picking old sealant and cleaning it, there was a burned spot in one of the lower corners that would stick out like a sore thumb.

I ended up pulling the windshield on a '59 Chrysler coupe that had a pliable gasket. After cleaning and adding the bedding compound, it fit right on the glass. I didn't have anyone here to help, but was able to get the windshield installed in less than fifteen minutes, as if to make up for all the previous battles I had been having with it.

It's actually a tinted one, Ron, The sun was shining directly onto it which makes it appear clearer.

I haven't really decided on the door panels, or the rest of the upholstery for that matter, as my friend that did my other cars is no longer physically able to do the work. I still need to make seat frames and springs up, as the originals were rusted to nothing, as well as the quarter window interior panels.

Thanks, James!

I installed the Booster Dewey rebuilt booster, the vacuum reservoir, and new master cylinder. Also got the wiring harness routed in the front. Had a minor setback, a windstorm kicked up and knocked over a table with freshly painted parts, now they will have to be all re-done.

John,
I'm pleased to hear that. I haven't had a lot of feedback from 59 Ply. owners.

You are doing a wonderful job with your restoration. I was happy and honoured to help!

I got the majority of my aluminum trim back from the plater, everything looked good, except for the trunklid 'toilet seat' insert, which is pretty well destroyed. There's a chance they misunderstood what I was wanting, I have a couple spares, but may find someone else to doo it depending on what I am told.

I masked and painted the parking light bezels, and reassembled them to the lower grill strips and grills with all redone original hardware. Then I fitted the assemblies into the front filler panel, and bolted them in. Next, I acid dipped the park light sockets briefly to remove corrosion, then painted them silver for better reflection. Next, NOS lenses were installed.

Looking great John.

Also, I see your earlier photos of the under side of body shell with black paint before the out riggers are welded. Is that something you put on and can weld through when the other panel is mated to it???? Looks like it would work well so rust wouldn't form between.

Matt, it was just a protective coating with rust converter rather than a weld-through primer. Right where the rosette welds are, it will burn off, but the surrounding metal will be protected. When the underside was painted, it should have gotten any exposed metal.

What is the product called John? Looks like something I should be using in those areas so the metal will be protected and no further rust will happen.

Mick,
a friend of mine that polished faceplates for slot machines for a living dinged and polished a full set of trim for a 2-door hardtop for me about fifteen years ago, so I just need to do the convertible specific ones to match the rest. Most were in decent shape to begin with, if I recall correctly. Glen passed away a few years ago, so I will have to have someone else do the remainder, as I do not have the proper equipment to do as nice a job.

The polishings not hard, but getting the dents out or totally re shapeing is a skill I have not really gotten close to mastering yet

I looked into buying a reproduction fuel tank and sender, as it would save a ton of work, but after weighing the fact of the cost, shipping, and that the tanks are not plated, but painted, I decided to refurbish an old one I had.

The tank I found was solid, but had a large, but light dent in the bottom, and did have a degree of surface rust on the inside. I removed the sending unit, and proceeded over to our garden hose, and pressurized the tank with just the pressure our well supplied, until I heard a deep 'Thunk'. It did a good job of popping the dent out without any damage. Next, I used a small propane torch to heat the remaining undercoating, and carefully scraped it off, to the original galvanizing. Note of caution- never try this on a tank that hasn't had at least a month to fully dry out, if you can smell ANYTHING, it can explode.

Next, I used some used lacquer thinner mixed with fresh fuel, poured it into the tank, then dropped a few three foot long chains inside. After swishing the contents around for a half hour, I inspected the results. The chains had scrubbed 90% or better of the surface rust from the bottom of the tank. I repeated this with the tank upside down, then all four sides. The liquid that came out was very thick with rust. I then rinsed the tank multiple times using Super Clean to remove leftover residue.

Next, after the rust had settled to the bottom of the drain pan, I soaked a rag in the fuel/lacquer thinner mixture, and wiped the tank down to remove the undercoat remains. Looks a whole lot better now!

I cleaned and painted the two straps, replaced the neck O-ring, and did a solder repair on the sending unit. I then installed it in the car, and fitted the fuel filler door.

I cleaned my '59 Ply. with muriatic acid and pressure washed it. I then poured in 1/4 gal. of WD 40 and swished it around to prevent flashing. Best 20-25 dollars that I've spent lately. Looking great John. What are your plans for the FL Carlisle show in July???

Well you will have to come through Arkansas. Since you are the "chosen one" they will follow you. Then we will have us a convoy. Then we get into TN and we might have us a VW micro but full of dem dar Hippies. Then you know what the hills of Virginia will bring ya??? Something about a clear liquid in a jar. Is your mouth watering yet. Tulsa is loooooooonnnnnng GONE but we can make this OUR Tulsa. I have a vision(no I'm not on the mountain top) of 200+ FL cars rolling into Carlisle at 1 time. We will make our own reality show. Since life is shorter on this end I'm going to this one. Does it sound like I need to hide the key to the good stuff or can we ALL quit TALKING and put out some ACTION???

Your Fury is coming along very nicely! Amazing work on your part, big m...as always!

Hope you can make it to Carlisle - we might actually make it there this year, and it would be great to meet the entire big m family.





:cool:


Thanks, Rosy!!

I rebuilt and detailed the distributor, then installed it. Tech showed up to ensure that I was doing it correctly.

A very talented gal in Michigan made him for me. I can ask if she is willing to sell another, if you wish.

I was wondering have you thought about converting to electronic ignition ?

Honestly, no. I've always ran breaker point ignitions as I rarely ever have any trouble, and if I do, a test light is all I need to diagnose it.

Most folks that have ignition troubles either have too much voltage going to the coil, or the bushings in the distributor are worn, allowing a change in dwell angle.
