I finished up Oro Kelso and it now leaves for LA to have the motor installed. The color combination looks really really good and nice to see another Dino back to it’s original factory color!
Progress on the interior. Dash is in recovered in the proper mouse hair and Daytona seat.
The front and rear glass went in today. The rear glass is very tricky as you actually have to flex the glass a good amount to get it in!
Work is starting on the interior including the doors. The doors are one of the hardest jobs in my opinion and take a significant amount of time to put new rubber, window channel and new window scrapers in. The locks have to be adjusted just right for them to work properly and the windows need adjusted correctly to smoothly go up and down. The vinyl that is glued down goes in first including the sills and rear window surround. The back glass can now go in. The rear leather on the back wall is also glued in place.
Some progress pictures as Oro Kelso comes back together wearing it’s Pininfarina special color.
This Dino was bought in boxes by the owner and was sent to Steve Kouracos for surfacing and paint. After some research it was found that this car was one of 3 special Pininfarina colors painted at the factory in Oro Kelso. Being as rare as it was the owner decided to go with the original color. This car arrived today to be put back together. I’ve already had all the interior pieces recovered and chrome redone. After inventory there were many parts that needed to be sourced. Reassembly starts tomorrow.
