      I started making the recovery of Napoleon coach built for fischers body contest craftsman guild in 1932, is a very delicate piece and which is badly damaged, it is my interest to recover as it was in 1930, so I'll try to make the broken parts same as the origin. those are missing, I'll do them from the original plan I have. in the construction of my coaches I always like to start the wheels, is what I'm getting in the carriage of Napoleon, the wheels are already consolidated and sanded, ready to lead a coat of primer fischers body coache paint. here are some pictures of this work. José.

    Arestauração wheel has been slow because it is a very delicate task, given the state they were in. after consolidation, I gave the first primer fischers body coache layer, then back to be rectified and another layer or two of primer fischers body coache before painting. the rims are made of metal, as this is difficult to paint I chose to oxidize the hoops, with very good results giving the very old iron appearance.

    Today I finished the restoration of the carriage wheels, as you can see, the rims were oxidized, they seem a more natural appearance of aging, the next steps will be the reconstruction of the axles, front and rear, which are broken, so I'll have to build new from the original plan, some pictures of the wheels.

    Beautiful work Jose. I think that your wish to refurbish this piece of history is fantastic. For those not familiar with the original contest that was the origin of the type coach that Jose is working on please have a look here http://www.jitterbuzz.com/fisher.html. this article also contains another coach from the same contest that was found in some trash and rescued. The history of the contest and why it was originated is a fascinating read all by itself.

    After some time of hard work and complicated the restoration of the coach of Napoleon's over the bottom of the carriage, today finished pole, the next step will be the restoration of the carriage body, a big headache for this work to be restored , materials with nearly 90 years are very degraded and some missing, it will be an adventure to recover this coach that has a lot of history. about G.M..Well, after dominating the photo post, I decided to change the previous images, as they were very small and little perceptible about promenores they have, I hope it is bette

    Ok. Egon, thanks for the tip, it worked, thank you for interest in seeing the progress of the recovery and restoration of the carriage of Napoleon, the history of this coach is directly linked to GM's automotive world in the 1930s.
    this will be a long and slow work, but very interesting for me recover this coach with nearly 90 years old. Thank Egon.

    Nice work Jose. I've always wanted to build a coach, but I'll watch your work instead.
    Can't wait to see this finished, and I'm glad you've got the larger photos worked out.
    Bull dust, blowflies, & the outback. Heaven on earth!
