I will do that, I need a post-it note stuck to dash, I looked up the operation on a PDF and also several told me that, will make sure that I follow instructions. What a difference it makes in driving and staying up with traffic. Always get waves and people at traffic lights asking what kind of car this is, good day in the Neighborhood!!!!!! Thank you Ken, Don P., Terry, Vic and everyone for getting me this far in the start up of old IRON.

Bruce, the Zephyr steering wheels were not painted, the color was impregnated in the plastic so, if you use a filler, you'll have to paint the wheel to get a uniform color.

Removed the old front seat cover to see what was under the cover today, original material very dirty but not falling apart yet, going to place a new cover over the material so that I can slide in and out of car. Also removed the rear seats to have seat material placed over them, back seat had a old cover but bottom rear did not have anything over it and was coming apart.
Rain and snow here so I removed the front and rear bumper and took to have polished. Next week over in West Virginia is a National Holiday, first week of Gun deer season and the guy polishing the bumpers will be gone, should have done Dec. 3RD. I now have had everything out of car once, most items twice, all grease removed but someway I always find some on my hands, HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

Finished the polishing of the rear bumper today, cleaned up the original bolts and re-installed, wonder if there was any cushion or gasket material between the bumper guards and chrome bumper, looks like a bad rub and rust problem if it just friction fits, let me know? Will work on the front bumper tomorrow, cold here. Saturday in the 50's for couple of days and then back to 20/30's again.

Rear bumper installed again. Painted the bumper irons.

Cushion for bumper guards????

The bumper looks super! To my knowledge, there were no pads, rubber or otherwise used between the bumper and bumper guards.

Looking great! I can sure see the "family resemblance" to my 39 Deluxe when I look at the photos of your Zephyr. What is the procedure for polishing the bumpers? Mine are not bad but if a little "elbow grease" will improve them I am willing.

Tinker,JIMTN,Ken Alabama, I talked to several Columbia people and did call Johnny out in California today. I told Johnny the whole story about car and how well the Columbia worked. Johnny said not to take it out if it was working well, not making noise and if I was not speed shifting. He told me all the things that could go wrong but with practical driving it should be fine. I did check the oil level again today and it was up to the fill plug in the banjo. My car rear axle has two fill plugs and he said to use the highest one to check level.
NEXT, after driving car yesterday I noticed two wet rusty streaks in the engine compartment. Both water pumps are now throwing water from behind the pulley, this is another item I have not had repaired, I will call Skip and ask him time line on the repair of pumps, need to drive car in at least one Christmas parade the 13TH of December.

Pretty sure Skip is taking a leave for recuperating from knee surgery. at least he was scheduled for it last week. Told me it would be maybe 30 days before he was back on the job. He may be taking calls....not sure.

Mac, talked to "Skip" today by email, will send pumps to him next week.
Today I installed two side mirrors I ordered, car only had a inside review mirror and lots of BLIND spots. Mirrors came out fine but a little concerned about the passenger side, have rotated all the way around, will work for now. (looks good)
Need to find a 12volt wiper motor to replace the vacuum wiper motor, it was raining here today so no test drive to check out mirrors.
