New years dinner E-mail

January 16, 2007 

 To celebrate the new year,we had a dinner in the garage with the whole crew on January 8. The lift was transformed into a diningtable and the food (From the Suriname card) tasted very well! A big thank you to Bart, Ko and Hanshans for arranging this!


The reminder of this evening was used to clean up around the car. At the time of writing on the 16th, the rear brakepods where made ready for re-assembly. No pics taken as I was pretty much annoyed with the time needed to do this job. A special Thank You! goes to Ramon Richie from the Studebaker / Packard club in the Netherlands ( for helping me with this awfull job! I owe you one!



The Engine E-mail

January 3, 2007

Started remounting all parts onto the engine. Pipework was regalvanised, everything is cleaned etc. Spray  painted many more parts like gearbox and engine mounting brackets so we can test-fit the engine soon. We are awaiting for the return of a buckload of regalvanised nuts and bolts at the moment which are desperately needed to continue the job. Until these arrive we will be doing all these small jobs that do not really show real progress. But in the end they need to be done anyway!.  No photo's taken, forgot my camera yesterday evening.
