Getting very close to getting some color on this Dino.
Cleaning wiring today and marking everything to have ready for when reassembly starts. I flipped a coin with Charlie to see who would clean and who would mark the wires. Luckily I won!
The USA models had large rectangular sidelight reflectors, rear reflectors, vertical indicator lights and all red tail lights. In the interest of originality all the USA lights will go back on. The plastic housings will be sent out for vacuum metallizing.
I picked up all the chrome today and a paint spray out was sent out for approval. Paint is getting close!
I received the gauges back from North Hollywood Speedometer after they were tested, cleaned and the clock converted to quartz. On the paint front, the first coat of high build primer is on.
Urethane Epoxy primer is now on. Next up high build primer. More bits and pieces being rebuilt and restored to new.
The car will be yellow and the first spray out was done. We will be comparing it to an original color book I have. In the meantime there still is plenty of parts to make like new!
I picked up a load of parts I sent out for powder coating, so getting them ready for installation.
