    That Phaeton is really growing on me. At first I thought it looked like a big penny, now I'm kinda liking it.

    I've thought about wet sanding, but the trunk paint is already getting thin. I still think I'll consult a professional detailer about it and see what they say. If I could make the top surfaces shine more with just a little more work I'd be thrilled!

    Cool. I gotta hold off on any new projects for a while. I just moved to a new 2 family and only have one space in the driveway. BTW you're Phaeton looks beautiful, you should avoid a repaint at all costs, that original paint will bring top dollar down the road.
    P.S: What's going on in May, I've been away for the past 2 weeks.

    I like the Phaeton alot! The only thing i don't like about it is the grille. I never was a fan of the "rolls royce" grills that come above the hood like that.

    Ben,

    May I say you've done a hell of a job cleaning the old girl up. She looks 1000% better than the last time I saw her! You really got the firemist paint to shine! Were you ever able to get the passenger-door window sash touched up? BTW, love the WWW tires.

    Thanks, only thing is, the passenger side door was already redone at some point, so it's not 100% original. What we were talking about in May is the Des Monies national CadillacOwner's meet. it would be great if you could make it!

    Yeah, I'm with you on the grille. It wasn't my choice either. But it was originally dealer installed at Hillcrest Motors in Beverly Hills CA and has been there since. So if I get it repainted, I'll put on a standard grille, right now it wouldn't match if I took it off.

    Thanks Craig, it means something coming from you.

    I haven't gotten the window sash touched up yet, because I think I'll just have the whole door redone. The last time it was redone, they didn't match the paint perfectly, so if you look at it from a certain angle it's a little off, plus somehow my old mechanic put a dent in the bottom of the door, so I figured I might as well have it all taken care of at once.

    Great to hear from you, where the hell have you been?

    fast forward to this month, someone hit the driver's side door and caused approx. $1,000 in damage. the first thing the body shop i had it repaired at told me it wasn't original, it was probably just a bunch of pigment maaco had lying around mixed together and they wouldn't be able to match it perfectly. i got the car back a week ago and the paint they sprayed is better quality, but it's lighter and doesn't have the olive tint to it. i'm not exactly in love with the color blend but they told me the truth up front so i'm satisfied.

    thanks for the compliments, i'm amazed every time someone comments my beater cadillac. i just have to keep them at least 5 feet away.

    Hey, I was just looking through my 1979 Cadillac material, and I think your two tone is actually original. There was a color called Pottery Gold Firemist that they two toned with Sable Black. The color chip I have looks exactly like your car.

    Hey, Ben!

    I know, I've been off in Neverland. There's this pesky thing called life that keeps getting in the way of my leisure. Deeply annoying. Glad to see all is working out for you. Keep the old gals running right!

    Here's a couple pics of my 77 Coupe de Ville. It will be readily apparent why I have no future as a professional photographer.

    Wow! I've waited so long to see your Coupe. Beautiful, I love the yellow ones. Yours looks perfect.

    I think those "outline" hood ornaments are cool as hell! Kind of like the Lincoln gunsight but for a Cadillac. Did they do that any other years?

    I think they started around 1975 on the De Ville d'Elegance models, then quit after 1977.
