Summer Internship Objective:

Every year LeMay Restorations has at least one feature car restored for their annual car show in Tacoma, WA. This year we have two 1956 Powell's. Our goal is to have these cars restored and driven onto the show field on car show day, August 28th 2010. Will we complete these cars on time? ...

Keep checking this blog to find out!

Quick Note:

LeMay Restorations is a completely separate entity from the LeMay-America's Car Museum. The two Powell's are family owned and restored at their private shop. The museum is a not for profit organization.

Today was a huge day! The Powell family came to visit our shop and I was so surprised to see how many of them showed up to our show to see their cars getting restored. It was such a treat to meet them and hear their stories of the Powell's and it was great telling them what was going on with the restoration. They all knew me since one of the volunteers gave them the blog address so they could keep up with what was happening.

On a more technical note, Dave, Wayne, and I were working on the taillights and noticed that the license plate light had to have a smaller bezel. So we had to do some searching to find smaller bezels. We ended up cabbaging onto one of them which was on the wagon parts car. I don't remember how we got the other one.

The tailgate that I painted earlier in the week got its glass, rubber, and some special trim pieces to make it stand out. I also put the stainless steel trim on the grill and Tom got some Coat M on the body of the wagon. By the end of the day Alicia got the sign lettering done on the wagon and it looks great!
