Car: 1938 Buick
Other Goodies: This '33 Chevy started life as a 5 window. Somewhere along the way, it got cut up and turned into a 3 window. The car was built by a body guy and after a handful of years, has started having some serious suspension and wiring issues.
First thing to go was the dated Dakota Digital gauges. We installed a set of Classic Instruments Vintage gauges. While having the gauges out, we got to address some serious electrical demons in the wipers, windows, and radio. Sometimes its easier to just tear the old wiring out, and run all new ciruits.
The transmission crossmember was also causing some issues so a new crossemember was fabricated.

A good example of a 15 year old build that needs some updating
The first item to go was the Dakota Digital gauge cluster.
The Classic Industries Vintage series has a much more timeless look.
Next, we had to deal with a poorly built transmission crossmember that dug into the side of the transmission due to clearance issues. A new crossmember was fabricated for it.
