Default Re: 4 Years, finished the '34 Three Window

Today I took the skirts off and took some photos to post, also have a few from underneath. One touch item I still have to do is repairing two relatively deep scratches on the back window glass that happened upon install. I will try a few methods on a piece of test glass, but any suggestions are appreciated.....thanks !!

Beautiful job, but if you show it in an EFV8National Meet, you will be gigged for all of those cadmium bolts.

To answer your question go to a glass shop and ask for some scratch removal powder. Mix the power with water to form a paste. Apply this to the scratches and use a 4 inch foam pad on a angle air grinder to polish the scratches out. You may need to repeat this a couple of times until the scratches are gone.

I could see that car with a long legged women stepping out and ZZ TOPS song legs playing.

beautiful car. do you have any pictures showing the trunk hinge support at the leading edge of them. A friend is putting a rust bucket together and the hinges had been cut out.

Thanks
Doug
