The car is in it’s final sanding stage and color this week!!!
I wanted an authentic type gearshift, so I got my hand on a real one and had my machinist reproduce one. Of course it’s about the same price to make one versus four. I now have four awesome looking shift mechanisms!
The cars are coming along. One has been primed and ready to paint and another is getting final sanding.
#2 is now ready for one more light blast and epoxy primer. It then goes to speedworks in Santee for paint. Brad had been doing all my Ferrari Dinos for years so this will be a change of pace. #3 is very close to having all the metal work also
Tomorrow it goes on the trailer to the paint shop. We put some temporary lettering on the back so no one would get confused what it is..
Car #1 is at the paint shop getting white epoxy primer. #2 in the metal work process and #3 undercoat grinding. I picked the 3 colors which will be #328 Gulf Blue, #137Gelb Green and #330 Gemini Blue.
#1 metal work is complete, all the modified oil lines are complete. Worked on all the gaps today and welded up holes that aren’t needed. Tomorrow it goes back on the rotisserie For a light media blast and then the epoxy primer. #2 is right behind it. First one is Gulf Blue with orange graphics, #2 is going to be Gemini Blue with Silver graphics and #3 is going to be Gelb Green with black graphics. No Fiberglass, No Vinyl Graphics!
Metal work for the aluminum front trunk lid center fill fuel tank and the tool we made to get the look we wanted.
