I’ve tried multiple times to update my little blog, and have been locked out. I found an end run by using my phone, so forgive the (assured MULTIPLE typos), we’ll try to catch up…

I believe we left off last fall with the DeSoto wagon running with its new Hemi, so first, an update on that.

It’s now painted, a beautiful dark garnet and pearl white, of course done here at Cool McCool’s Garage.

The interior is also done, farmed out (the first time EVER), and it’s been a frustrating and disappointing experience. All of my worst fears about hiring work out came true.

We were lied to, put off, got material we did not select, and put off for six months. The end result is good, not great, but it’s done and we’re going to live with it.

That’s be pjs, and we’re moving forward. Today I started on replacing the cargo floor and side panels in birch, made good progress. Stain and varnish will complete that part, then I need to repaint the garnish molding and the interior will be complete.

The headliner was made by the guy who did the rest of the interior, I installed it, in spite of his promise to, and I’m glad to add that to my skill set. I’m proud of how it looks,

We’d hoped to be using it by now, but being retired, I now have no deadlines, so it’ll be done when it’s done. Now that can once again post, I’ll try to keep the page updated with progress on this and all the other fun stuff happening here at Coll McCool’s Garage.
