Slowly but surely the little things have been coming together.

It's just a lowly Studebaker, but there is no reason it can't wear lipstick.

Dash pad needs final install but not till the very end.  Need to keep an eye on the wiring.  Same with the drivers seat, makes it easier to get this old body articulated inside the work area.  And yes, that is Sirius XM, blues all the time.

Every thing is pretty well cleaned up and finished in here.  Want to start it, but want a second body handy, especially with the fire extinguisher.

Let's do a little walk around.

Added the visor this week.  The visor is from a 1956 Stude Hawk and the A pillar on the Hawk is at about a 45 degree slant whereas the Lark is at about 22 degrees.  Had to fab new mountings.  Not the perfect visor, but I am really happy with it.  Was on an international Stude site looking for a visor and was contacted by a fellow in Niagara on the Lake, ON.  Worked out perfect.

Also finished the trim on the tailgate.

While installing the visor, I cut the antenna lead so I am just waiting for a new one.

The engine has been running and sounds great.

The to do list is getting short.  

rear gear change

steering bellcrank shaft

Tune up

And they say you can't go back. What do "they' know ? You have clearly found a way to time travel Warren. At least as far as 62. Love the details !

Cruising this season?

Cruising is in the plans, even if I am isolated in the wagon. Shannonville is running Mix n' Match so I'd like to tow the bantam up there. There were a couple of events happening in the US, but that will be out of the question. If this third wave hits, I may never get out of the shop.

I received my Studebaker sway bar last Friday and had an appointment at Cannington Garage today to install and do the alignment since they had installed all the new suspension parts last year. I dropped the wagon off yesterday and went home. This afternoon I get a phone call telling me that the mounting plates were both for the passenger side. WTF! Never panic, I immediately called 'Lightspeed Mike' who lives 5 minutes from the garage and told him of my plight. (luckily he had just arrived home) He went down to the garage, grabbed the mounts, went home, set up his CNC plazma table and made me new mounting plates. An hour later he call me to say he is on his way back to the garage with the new plates. This was amazing! Mike has done lots of work for me before and I have never been disappointed. This time I am overwhelmed. Thank you Mike.

Warren

I guess that's why they call him Lightspeed Mike ! Good news. We are all anxious to see 'The Stude' first hand.

Just for the curious I thought I would post a picture of the mounts that Warren was sent and the ones I made for him.

So is it common in this hobby for shops to bungle like that ? I would think a left and right is kind of standard when ordering parts ? Something I should be cautious of when ordering parts or is it just some shops are really bad for that ?

I don't think this ever happened before and probably never will again. This isn't about the supplier, it's about the great service and work from Mike.
