Did a couple of things early this morning before heading out for the day.

LHR tail light wasnt working and i found it unplugged, attempted to plug in with the park lights on and i shorted out.
This is the tail light that flips up to reveal the fuel filler so my immediate assumption was movement of old crusty wires means broken wire.
Disasembled to find the braided sheathing crumbled away and wires touching the housing and rusted contact tension springs. At this point i checked the RHS light and found it in good condition
Forgot to get a pic of the finished result but i took the contacts with wire and spring out of a Celica tail light and fitted to the old housing. Then soldered 3" down to the better part of the old wiring and covered the new part with flexible condute and tape. Good as new, ill get a pic later.




While i had it apart the lenses needed painting. Ken said thats all it needs as they are just faded and in good nick. He was right, first time ive painted a lens came out great.

I just got it from my local auto parts supplier, Super Crap will have it.
I got this one in the Aerosol made in Australia, you can paint the globes with it aswell.

Scott, went up to our local Saturday night car show and eat meeting place (which is growing in size quickly) there was a Caddy Convertible (think same year) there in "Awesome condition" - l did'nt have a camera but will go up next Saturday night and take a photo of it and post it up. He's there just about every week.

Love your car !!

Happyone

Was just trying to get some paint to do touch ups and repaint rust repair and the spats. Got paint code "1" on the plate, turns out she used to be black, which explains the bits of black i found where the grey had flaked off, thought it was undercoat. Laughing
No im not going to repaint black, not yet anyway. I think the grey looks cooler what you recon???

Holy crap , i love black but i think i like the grey on this one.
I just had in my mind this is its original colour that has been reprayed a few times in its 60+ years.

Funny thing is i have an EJ sedan original grey that im painting black.
Maybe i should just paint everything black, will certainly give me heaps of practice getting the panel beating skills up to scratch.

Now that i have had a better look, all the door jams and the pillar is black, i didnt take much notice as it just seems to blend into the grey.

Either way the repairs and touchups will be in grey atleast till regoed after that who knows??? Laughing
