Very cool Barry, I'd love to see photos when you're done.

I like the look so I'll probably try to replicate it when I change out the old nameplates for the reproductions. Is that frame on both the fore and aft nameplates?

The back one on mine looks identical to the front one. I'll get it put on tonight and take a picture and post it.

Common, you are making it hard on me here... I have to string the rookie along little.

By the way Marcus, today is my one year anniversary as Anna's main man. I am no longer a rookie.

You can do better than that to make it hard on a rookie (rivet master rookie!). Read posts #5 thru #14 of this thread, now that's making it hard on the rookie!

Congratulations Frank!

And thanks Rick for going easy on me.

You see Barry, we may be part of the Club, but as long as we're Rookies we're still going to get hazed. It's like 7th-grade all over again!

Frank,
Can you tell me where I can get fender wrap? Did you also shave the rivets on the nameplates? My originals were not shaved.

I saw it at pep boys. It was labeled fender wrap, and came on a roll. Now mine had the frame intact and I did not have to reproduce it. It looks like this for the factory plate...

Here are some things close.... the first is not flexible, but would work for the name plates....

Fastening of plates

Frank, How did you fasten the plates? Olympics? Shaved or unshaved? Screws?
Thanks!

I installed the plates and frame with olympic rivets. I wish I could use my shaver on them, but they are too close to the frame. I am waiting for some reason to buy a dremel to grind them down.

Alright off to the store to buy a new tool, I have waited long enough.

Smile Shopping for our addiction

Frank, tell the truth. What else did you buy for the mistress besides a Dremel?

I got the restored plate and frame installed last night but got some vulkem on the blue paint. Is there anything out there that will take it off without dulling the paint?

I used a rag dampened with mineral spirits to take Sikaflex off paint on my Argosy where I had touched up the paint. Didn't hurt the paint, as long as it was good and dry.

Yup, I've heard mineral spirits, and also WD-40, can help remove the stuff.

The WD40 did the trick. Didn't hurt the paint but took the Vulkum right off.

A Discovery

I discovered some muscles that I forgot I had. My fingers, hands, fore arms, shoulders and back all hurt. But for good reason. The easy part was re-installing the refurbished sign.

Turns out that I have what is left of the original clear coating. I could not figure out why the Nuvite polish wasn't working. Once I carefully wet sanded with 1200 grit, the polish worked like it should. I can tell the instant that I'm through the clear coat because it gets dull. I spent a few hours with the Dewalt buffer and Nuvite #7. I know it will get much shinier but this is a good start.

The last thing I did today was to replace the bulb seal in the curb side single bed window. I also replaced the screen in the window and polished the frame.

I'm hoping I feel like new in the morning so I can get more polishing done.
