    Craig, You're a very patient man. I hope you get your beloved car back sooner rather than later. I can't wait to see it in one piece, I love your car! Dave

    I totally forgot about your '69 being in the shop, Craig! It's cool that it's up to a rolling chassis, but I'd love to see it back together!

    I dare say this needs a more appropriate title "The Amazing Race - seeing if a man can outlive his car" (Or, I guess, just "77CDV's 1969 FWB Restoration"... your call).
    And how does one change the title of an existed thread? Also, clear your inbox. Tried to PM you and your box is full!

    What's the hold up? funds or just a slow shop working on it? If it's the shop I would have my boot up their ass for progress! lol
    The guy does great work. I've seen the finished product he puts out. When I was first talking with him about doing the car, he had just finished a '63 Series 62 Convertible, and it looked in-effing-credible. I probably should have asked the owner how long it took!

    Patience is a vice.

    The Coupe is in storage, for the time being. My thread was recently bumped, though. I've made a list of all that needs to happen to it come springtime. :P

    Re: White...or Blue?

    Didn┤t see this thread before, though you talked me about your long long restoration process. Although slow, it┤s a progress. Maybe a kind pressure on the guy who┤s doing the work could speed up process. My 69 SDV had vynil roof when new and now has some leak (and interior trim frame rust) by the lower part of the rear window. Those pics are scaring me.

    BTW, if it was my car, BLUE. No doubt, for this kind of car is a must: Original, easier to keep and adds more value to your caddy.

    When the work is finished, you┤ll have the perfect `69 FWB and you┤ll be the perfect caddy owner

    Box cleared. Also PM Jay and he can change the thread title for you (for some reason, regular members can't).

    So glad you are taking the time and $$$ to do this restoration right Craig. So many people just bondo the crap out of stuff and do a cheap respray its sickening, especially on older cars not worth a lot(like our Caddys).

    I'm sure it will be a show stopper when its all said and done, you don't ever see the formal limos at car shows, its always the Coupe Devilles and convertibles.

    Holding pattern. Little things get done in fits and starts, but there hasn't been any major progress. While quite frustrating, there's little I can do about it. I suspect that when completion does finally happen, it will happen quickly. I would very much like to drive the car again. It's been well over a year now.
