Bumper removed on Pauls 1959 Cadillac

Its time to get serious with it, We have removed the hood and are working toward stripping her bare and starting over! With the removal of the interior went a lot of the electrics so we had heard that V8 rumble for the last time until its rebirth.

Looking at the the front end its probably easier just to remove the whole lot including all the bright work. I am having all the chrome replated and may even look at reanodizing the alloy grill components

Blair seems pretty happy to be pulling stuff apart but I am really hoping that he is as good at putting it back together!
