  1. Sterling #S009

    Actually, I was talking about these little fellows.
  2. Windshield defroster vents

    By way of example, here is are a couple of rivets that I put on the leg piece of a Tinman outfit built for the local high school play. From straight on, they look fairly real. From the side, they're just paint on flat roof flashing. The point is, that real carbon fiber only shows through a clear...
  3. Lucky 13

    A little bit more progress today. Got the side skirts removed along with the front under pan. The body bolts have all been removed as well. I have to, at this time, take exception with whoever made the decision to use carriage bolts in the fiberglass flange that holds the body to the pan. Years...
  4. Lucky 13

    There were no markings on the unit. It was actually in the dash. It pretty much fit in the right pod. I'm certain that it was made specifically for the spot it was in. Sorry for the crappy pic. I didn't realize it was AC until it started coming out.
  5. Lucky 13

    Made some progress today. We started major disassembly. Roof off. Dash out. But wait, there's something odd and unexpected. Looking under the car for a jack point, I saw two condenser units. I thought they were oil coolers because the Sebring has an oil cooler. When I went to remove the right...
  6. Headlight mod questions

    While I realize that this thread is a year and a half old, I got to thinking about this the other night and sketched up an idea that I've had. It sorta goes along with this one, I think. Let's say I'm thinking out loud and am looking for input on the degree of complexity. I'm not a big fan of...
  7. Lucky 13

    Bwahaha! Number 13 didn't have a steering wheel when I pulled it out last week. I just couldn't bring myself to put my hands on the tires to steer it. I am pretty sure she bites like James' car does. She just needs a firm (albeit somewhat mangled ) hand to guide her into submission. :p
  8. Lucky 13

    Made a little headway getting Brer Rabbit out of the briar patch today. I was able to get close enough to it to get a shot of the serial number: CCC 189. Performed the tree-ectomy. Cleared one side completely. My hands look a little like I lost the battle with the briar patch, but after the...
  9. Lucky 13

    Well, as of today, it's official. I am the proud owner of Sterling body number GP 13. It's been sitting outside for a year or two. It sat in a barn for about 18 years before that. It's looking like a rather ambitious rebuild, but I have the motor and trans rebuilt and ready to go. At this point...
  10. Engine/Trans question -- using FWD engine in rear of Sterling/Sebring

    So, a friend and I were discussing my Sebring. We were talking about the feasibility of installing a engine/trans combo from a mid-80's Dodge K-car. That is to say, taking a front wheel drive car and moving the whole shootin' match to the back end. I know that most of the conversations, thus...
  11. Hello from a new guy from TN

    Hi gang! I'm new to the forum (joined today). I have a Sebring 1 that I bought about 7 years ago. I have no doubt that some of you have seen it (it's pictured in the Sebring I/Sebring II comparison). It has been sitting in my garage for almost that long screaming for attention. I have begun the...
