'72 D22C restoration
« on: July 20, 2013, 10:11 PM »
I have been working on my 40 y.o. Winne since last August  N:(  New radiator, belts and hose (the lower water hose was a Bugger), water pump, power steering pump and hoses, heater control lines and water control valve, and new fuel pump and line to carb - which was new a few years ago (Edlebrock by Weber). 
Then I began removing 40 years of outside aluminum corrosion.  I sanded and polished for weeks.  The window trim was primed and painted a bronze-black and I also replaced all of the window gaskets and "fuzzy" sliding channels.  The bumpers were rechromed ($1K) and the ladder and roof railing were anodized hard black.  The corner quarter moldings were polished and clear anodized.
I had stencils made for the W in the back and on the front sides also the CHIEFTAIN .
Expensive, yes, but what a beauty  :)clap   It will be couple of months to finish, including new carpeting.
