08514 came out of the blasting booth today on to the next step of primer. Clean body and frame with no surprises.
he last of the fiberglass is out on 08514 and I’m suppose to be getting another rotisserie next week. There has been a strike at the port which is causing the delay. I hope to have it media blasted next week. Just for information, it takes approximately 135 man hours to completely disassemble and to take all the various parts and disassemble each part for various finishes etc. I kind of look at this part as phase 1. Phase 2 is rebuilding and restoring all the various assemblies.
Work continues removing every part from 08514, all to be carefully restored to new condition.
Two Dino’s arrived today for a complete makeover! 08510 is the LAST flares and chairs Dino made, originally Red and staying that way with black interior. 08514 is the third to last Dino made and was only 2 car in front of the chairs and flares car at the very end of the production run. Both super nice cars with everything in place including ALL the original smog equipment. Both cars with very low miles and the Silver Spyder still with it’s original paint and factory installed headlight covers. Both are USA cars and no changes are anticipated from how they were delivered. I’ve already removed lids and fiberglass getting ready for engine removal this week. These are nicest cars I’ve had to start with as there is no visible damage or corrosion. It’s off to the races!!
