Restoration of the horn compressor, cleaned and repainted.
Work continues as Brad at Speedzone addresses the few areas of body rot while meantime I continue to restore every part .
I love all aspects of restoring a Dino but for some reason I do not particularly like doing the vent windows. they can be a real P I T A! I usually put them off for last but this time I decided to get right on them, anyway that for sure now is the last items to get chromed.
Brad at Speedzone has already started the body work, luckily only a few small places where metal needs to be replaced.
Today the car was picked up by Brad at Speedzone Paint and Body in Santee, Ca just a short distance from my shop. Brad has done some amazing show winning work, lately on a beautiful Ferrari 308 as well as his own Pantera. The work begins today on a freshly media blasted body and panels.
With the car ready to be delivered to the painter tomorrow I can now turn my attention to start cleaning parts and restoring them. In the process of making a new heat shield I thought I stumbled upon another location for a body number. Not to be as I soon realized it was an odd number. It was sandwiched between the two pieces that make up the heat shield.
Pressing bushings out today and making new aluminum heat shields so I can get the last of the powdercoating done on the control arms. The body and pieces are now primed with metal etching primer and will be delivered back to me tomorrow. I had the fiberglass lightly media blasted.
