[quote]Removing the front overhead in our 85 Cadet
I found a 1985 Canadian 5 cent coin. I hope this was the parting gift by someone in the Canadian finishing plant. A Polish label and Canadian money...I wonder what I will find under the floor :ask
Well it's worth about 2.5cents US so dont plan on too big a trip funded by your treasure.
It does however reenforce my belief that all of the cadets and captains were assembled in Canada by Nical Inc.
It sounds like your restoration is proceeding well. I received an email from a Leonard Pena asking if I knew where he could get a rear window for his Captain
. He is also in the US somewhere, but as yet did not reply to my answer so I dont know where he lives.
You might be interested in knowing (if you dont already ) that I did the entire interior of my caprtain in a light
tan, automotive rubber backed carpet. I scraped the entire interior shell to remove all of the original mess and used 3M's super 77 spray adhesive to put it up.
It's lasted two years and shows no sign of coming loose. It also serves as a reasonable insulation for cool evenings and I've had no problem with condensation.
I've also found two, 7" round led brake turn and running lights
at Princess Auto here in Sarnia that fit on perfectly. They would also work great on your Cadet
if your interested
They bolt on perfectly flat requiring no major work.
Have you heard from Leonard Pena ?
