    I was afraid it could happen. It uses to take place in long, long resto processes Maybe the first shop guy didnīt want to face it and was delaying that day... Or maybe he did not even care or know it.

    Anyway, Iīm glad to know this issue is unclogged and now itīs flowing quickly to the end. Good to know you finally found the missing parts (Fortunately for us 223,267 cadillacs were made for 1969 -except for Eldorado- (though only 17,300 FWB and 2,545 Sixty specials ) Hope the missing items were not specific of your model as they are rarer and more expensive.

    The key in these cases is dealing with a serious person (like the upholsterer) that likes doing his job with these old cars. Letīs wait I donīt have to swallow my words when I get some body flaws fixed

    Looking forward to see pics

    Re: White...or Blue?

    Brief update. I've been buying up the parts the last body shop lost, and the new body shop's mechanic has been sorting things out and putting things back in operational order. I stopped by today to check up on the progress. She's not quite there, but she's looking more like a real car these days.

    What year is it, guys?

    I think I was in a coma or something. It appears we have a Cadillac here!

    Re: White...or Blue?

    Thatīs absolutely fantastic!!! Iīm really glad you finally got finished your '69. Now, just a few details and youīll enjoy again the pleasure of driving a '69 caddy.

    Itīs very gratifying for me seeing that color so similar to mine (at least on pics). I know you looked for the exact match and I donīt know how much effort to get the same was employed on my car.

    Did you install new weather strips?

    Congrats for that good resto

    Re: White...or Blue?

    New weatherstripping is on around all the side windows and on the trunk lid. Last body guy screwed up the wiring to the power trunk latch, so we're sorting that out now. But, it's coming together. I'll be going up again today before work to check in. They're gonna get sick of seeing me, and I don't much care!

    Checked up on her again today. Let's just say I'm really glad I changed body shops. The mechanic had her up on the lift, and there were all sorts of wild and wacky things the last guy did that made her frankly unsafe at any speed.

    I'd rock that as is. Definitely better than the other shop.

    I love watching what mechanics do to my cars -Never tired-. That makes me familiar with the secrets the cars hide inside Not everyone likes being watched; I hope your shop guy does not care.

    You took the right decision taking your car away from that shop. I have the impression that guy didnīt know what he had in his hands
