1972 Fleetwood Update
« on: March 20, 2019, 12:08:11 PM »
Hello everyone!

I have been MIA for a while now. School has me busy! I've also been busy restoring the Fleetwood. Just finished painting and clear! Painted to match, and the russet firemist looks great! I am doing all of this out of a storage unit by the way, and with a 20+ foot long car, that can be pretty difficult. I got all the hard stuff done though and i'm proud! Never done any body work before or anything like this, but I'd have to say it's been smooth sailing. Also, I remember in an old post of mine someone mentioning they had a steering wheel for this car. If you're this person, please reach out to me! Pics attached. Let me know what y'all think!

It is wonderful that you are doing all this great work yourself.  It is the best way to get it how you want it and learn in the process.  Looks like it will be stunning!  Send us a picture when it is all finished too.

A terrific example of a valuable luxury Cadillac of a by gone era.  You'll cherish this car when you finally get it on the road.  Great work, and keep sending us pictures,  Happy day, James
