  1. VW Starter problems

    Wow... sticker shock!!!! I might research this a little further but there has to be an aftermarket starter out there that I could try... but for now, I will just go with what I have... My theory on this has proven to be true several times as I do use an expensive trickle charger and every time I...
  2. VW Starter problems

    Good morning... I got an education two days ago after a long long day...... I worked in my garage on a new shed project, and needed a sheet of fiberboard in the rafters directly above my Sterling. Obviously it was a good idea to move the Sterling out to the driveway so I didn't make a major...
  3. Too many variables so need to brain storm

    Just an update on a couple of things before I head to the lake to chase some fish around this morning.... I am still debating the high speed linear actuators and I found a reason NOT to buy them...... I went to the original manufacturers website where they had the diagrams/info on this one. The...

  5. Too many variables so need to brain storm

    Good morning.... I would have to look back or research them a bit but they are common mirrors used to extend the view for towing applications (Ebay). I bet I tried ten sets of mirrors from swap meets etc. and some from JC Whitney too.... none of them would defeat the rear fender flares on the...

  8. Abstract Swoosh Design

    Hi.... I am restoring a trailer and I am about half done, but would like to paint a Sterling logo on the front of the trailer's fiberglass front panel.... At one time, I did see a piece of art that could only be described as an abstract swoosh depiction of a Sterling body style. Does it ring a...
  9. Gas stations

    I learned too late that you do NOT take your car to any gas station if you are in a hurry.... But, there was one time, where we had to. We had finished the car after four years of work, and were taking in on a shake down on quite a long trip. On our way home, my son was driving, and I was...
  10. Hodge Podge for now

    I did some scanning of the car build from the early days, and I honestly don't have a clue where I should post all these but here are some scans of just a few of the projects that have been done on this car with more to come, when I get more time; have you heard that before? Flickr...
  11. Too many projects

    Hi guys.... it's been awhile. Since finishing my Sterling (are they ever finished?) I have completed "several" builds and for the last two winters, I have been working on a 1928 Chevy truck.
