Today's photos from the garage. 300 F gets its convertible top installed, the 57 gets some new sheet metal
and the Polara get some much-needed service.

I hope the guy leaning on the 300c wearing the jeans owns that car

Absolute pet hate when people think that paint and panel equals something to sit on

Got that off my chest now

I love the cars in this thread

I know this guy, he's a 300 owner but this isn't his own car, Lollo shame on you!
I've met the owner at the Power Market earlier today.

For the person who owns the 59 Desoto in these above photos , I noticed it has a license plate frame from the Dealer Dunmire . I just found a business card on ebay I was going to buy but thought it was better for someone who owns a car from that actual dealer . Here is the listing on ebay . Hope the person who owns the car sees this , as it would be a nice addition to the car .

Just a question on that fender repair

That is an odd shaped patch, but I was thinking that maybe the curved corners would even out the shrinkage as its welded?

Is that why its like that, or am I way off the page?

This must be an optical allusion, but behind that 300 looks to be a spercharged engine with cross rams mated to the top of the blower

Is it possible to get a picture of both (must be 2) engines please (mad blower fan and mad cross ram fan)

I have thought about a combination of the 2 by fitting 1 blower at the end of each ram (say 2x4-71 blowers)

This is all pipe dreams so far

"Julia's" 59 is now sandblasted and ready for new healthy sheet metal.



========================================================

I have a couple questions:

a. Where is all the beautiful new sheetmetal I see being grafted into these cars being sourced from ?

Is this a Sweden thing, or are these trunk and floor pans available to us Americans ?

b. Given the severity of Sweden's winters, what is the construction of these walls and roof I see in the shop ?

I see the heavy contouring of the sheetmetal for strength, but how to they incorporate insulation in to the mix ?
Is it double layered ? ... and if so, what kind of insulation and how is it applied ? How thick are the walls ? roof ?

So, if I needed similar sheetmetal to rebuild the trunk in my DeSoto, how might I get it ???

d500dodge59 - 2014-11-10 11:08 AM The roof is insulated with 8 inches and the walls have
8 inches too. The steel in roof is profiled to handle the snow. JAN


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is the insulation an injected foam that hardens between the inner and outer metal surfaces, or something
else ? I understand the extruded profiling for strength. We get LOTS of snow here in Spokane.

About sheetmetal, shipping is the problem. The insulation are blocks in 2 layers to move the splits away
from each other, so warm doesn't leak out.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I guess I need to ask then, how are you making these very pretty trunk and floor pans ??? They sure
look good to my eye. I am tired of forming and bending every little curve.

--------------------------------------

I have worked a similar wall/roof product called K-Span. It was simply sprayed over with a hardening
foam to about 12" thickness and left exposed to the elements. Somehow, this seems like asking for leak
and/or corrosion problems as the foam deteriorates from UV or develops water absorption in other ways.
I would think foaming the interior would be better from a weatherproofing standpoint, but would be ugly
as a mud fence and make the wall surfaces difficult to use. A multi-layer system with foam blocks (or injected)
between an inner and outer metal skin would be the best of all options. I am just not sure how one would
make it work with such heavy contouring.

Mangus, What do you do about the rust under the spot welded seams of the fins on the 59 dodge like around the gas cap. You can cover it over with epoxy primer but the rust is still there hiding and growing and will eventually come back in bubbles under the paint. Am I wrong ? I'm not the best body and paint guy, but it seems like the rust will come back if it's not 100% removed. I have been told if you can keep oxygen from getting to rust you can stop it from growing. Like covering it with Por-15, but the problem with that stuff is it's so slick and getting paint to stick to it. Could you give me some pointers on what primer, sealer, paint and clear you prefer and have had the best luck with. You do awesome work and take on some pretty massive jobs !!! I enjoy watching your stuff, it gets me excited about attacking my projects. Thanks, Cory. DeSoto lives !!!

Sorry for late response, but here it is:

Wizard: The tires on the 300F are Coker Classic 225 / 75-14.

Ttotired: Detailed pics of the monster engines will come later. Hold on!

Doc: Almost every piece of sheetmetal are made by Fridberg in his shop.
I will try to take pictures when he makes a trunkfloor next time.
Shipping costs makes it impossible to send over to U.S. It is also an advantage to build directly on the car.
Hope you understood Frid's answers to your garage/shop questions, and you get your own ready soon.

60crossram: You have to replace all the metal that can not be saved by sandblasting.
Fridberg blast carefully and then fill the smallest pores with epoxy, to prevent oxide formation.
He also frequently use "lead sheet"
For those who wants extra corrosion protection also acid-dipping is possible.
58wedge on this forum know more about it.
Currently is used chemicals from DeBeer's product range with good results.

Have a nice Saturday!

Nice job! I'd need a handcrafted sheet metal for the outer left sill panel of a '60-62 Chrysler/'60-61 DeSoto 2-door. Only the part between door and rear wheel..

Some outstanding cars in this thread. Those Imperial convertibles are awesome. Are there any more pics of the 60 Imperial above here? I have never seen a black 60 convertible before!
