Default Re: '97 CC DS project for my folks

Got the new wheels and tires in, LED grounds lights, toggle switches and digital volt meter installed.



To date:
Voltage reducer
Fuse block
Horn with lighted toggle switch
HD leaf springs
Headlights and tail lights
LED ground lights with lighted toggle switch
Digital Volt meter with lighted toggle switch
New key switch
12v Acc socket
New wheels and tires

Still to go:
Brake drums and shoes
Custom Dash
New rockers
Rear seat kit
Paint job
And I'm sure more that I haven't thought of yet!

Although this one is for the folks, I'm looking for one to rebuild/customize for myself. This is very addicting and I'm having a ball!

Looking sharp! Did you order center caps to go along with those wheels?

Thanks, UncleJerm!

And yes on the center caps, they were just omiitted from my order. But they were very good when I called and said they'd get them out ASAP. We'll see

Finally some weather in the double digits to get some more work done!

Got the body sanded with 220 on a DA and scuff pad and ready for adhesion promoter and primer. I couldn't find any Bulldog AP so I'm using Duplicolor AP. Primer I'm using is U-POL 20:25.

The body is pretty beat up with a lot of scratches and deep gouges so I'll put 2-3 coats of the primer filler on those areas and 1-2 lighter coats (reduced) over the rest. Once sanded I'll fill any remaining scratches with a glazing putty.

I was told at the autobody supply store that the U-POL 20:25 can also be used as a sealer but I'm still up in the air on that. I'd prefer an actual sealer but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

A little redundant, but if you look close you can see the deep scratches and gouges which were pretty much all over this cart.



Labor intensive, a good high-build urethane primer, glazing putty and a lot of sanding, I finally have it ready for sealer and paint!




And while waiting for some warm weather to get the color on, I got the new dash, steering wheel and column installed, and switches cut in and wired up.

Your dash looks like a sturdier design than the one I went with. How do you like it? With the doors locked can you still get in by flexing the door like mine does?

I'm really happy with it at this point and I'll see if there's any rattling from the glove boxes once I get it back on the road (as I've heard some say). As far as opening a locked glove box, I haven't tried it but you now have me curious!

I think it looks great, easy to install and very solid. It's amazing how much (another) $100 can add (not including the steering wheel, adapter and column ).

Thanks guys!

I'm really going overboard on this thing

Just a personal preference: I'd have removed those factory cupholders since you have 4 in the dash now - makes the dash area look a little cleaner IMO.

If the plastic glove box doors end up rattling, those little felt dots that are put onto cabinet doors to keep them from clunking when being closed are a great way to squelch the rattle.
