Thanks gang.😎
Super Fly circa 1950, Smallfoot.😂
I worked on the front seat today. Pics tomorrow.’
That front seat is a heavy one. Working on getting the back rest cushion off. :confused:

I would like to say that the interior work on the Caddy is done......
It is not.
I seem to be stuck in neutral.
End of summer doldrums, perhaps.
I have been doing some small jobs but just can’t work up the enthusiasm for much more right now.
Hopefully today will be different.

Haven't been posting much as it's mostly boring stuff....
Sun visors wrapped.
All the arm rests are wrapped.
Wind lace is done on the PS as are the two doors.
The metal headliner strip is back in place above the doors.
I will be turning it around tomorrow and going at the DS.
Going to be listing it for sale by the middle of next week. Lets see what happens.:eek::cool:

What!!!! For sale already. You have done a good job with the old girl. Kept it from meeting a rusty demise
 
Thanks all.
I said at the beginning of this thread that I might just flip it.
Our circumstances have changed. We now are back to having 2 vehicles. Both of which will need to be in the garage by snowfall.
Seems foolish to do all this work just to have to tarp it and park-it outside for the winter.
I figure that with the holiday weekend coming up it would be a good time to shake the trees and see what falls out.😎

Well at least it gets to live another day. I hope you get some profit out of it to help finish the custom. Or whatever else needs it first... :p Thanks for sharing the project with us [cl
 
Don’t get too excited gang. It is not gone yet.
I have had a couple of guys sniffing around it, but so far no money.
We will see what happens when I list it. I will not give it away.
Back on the DS wind lace and door panels tomorrow.
