Hi Andreas, thanks for the comments. Did you see the period colour chart on the previous page? I think we settled on Coach Painters Red - Light, something that is not too bright but not too brown-red.

I saw the colour on a 29 Speedster he has in his shop, it looked good on the car.

Cheers

Peter

I thought I would post an update on the car, it may not look like much has happened since the last update, but we are still making progress...sorry for the quality of the photos, I'll try and do better ones next week.

We are still missing 2 atillery wheels to be used as spares in the fenders, so if you have any or know of any please let me know.

I'll be getting a quote on the engine rebuild this week...

We are going to have to order more wood this week too, the wooden top template is almost done, so now it's time for the final wood to be cut and fitted.

Hi Peter, your Auburn is looking great. I am about to embark on my 8-120 restoration. Once I move the spare engine from the front of the car I will be able to move it to the body shop. Also about to get an engine quote, it would be interesting to see a USA quote compared to an Aussie quote. I have allowed around a thousand per cylinder plus some (should have got a 4cyl). Regards

Jason

Hi Jason, thanks for your comments and good luck with your restoration too. I'll let you know how much it's going to cost to rebuild the engine...it can't be that complicated to rebuild...but like all restorations, I'm sure it's going to cost more than I thought <!-- s;-) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;-) -->

DEAR SIR:
THANK YOU FOR THE MARVELOUS POSTINGS YOU CONTINUE TO MAKE TO THIS THREAD ON THE AUBURN CABRIOLET RESTORATION WHICH YOU HAVE UNDERTAKEN. WE ARE ALL VICARIOUSLY ENJOYING SEEING YOUR CONSIDERABLE PROGRESS AND THE CRAFTSMANSHIP EMPLOYED. I AM INTRIQUED BY THE VEHICLE SITTING BEHIND YOUR CABRIOLET IN THE REPAIR GARAGE. IT APPEARS TO BE ANOTHER AUBURN OF SIMILAR VINTAGE AND IN RATHER DECENT CONDITION. FROM THE PHOTO IMAGES IT IS DIFFICULT TO BE SURE BUT IS IT A SPEEDSTER MODEL? THANKS FOR SATISFYING MY CURIOSITY.
