After converting the car to a Euro look the owner decided to go back to the configuration it left the factory. It required cutting the holes for the USA lights with metal and paint work. Nearly finished.
Rob’s car is basically done!! I still need to get the AC charged, and thats about it. I’ve taken it out for several test drives and then come back and dial everything in. It’s kind of sad to finish this one up as I’ve had it for 10 months and have touched every nut and bolt in the process of bringing this back to life in it’s original Dino Blue Metallizzato, my favorite color.
With the Dino now 95% complete, the owner flew out from New York to check out his new baby. He loved it and got to take it for a spin as well as text photos to his Dad who had a Dino 40 years ago. Like Father like Son!!
Now that the motor is in and running I’ve loaded it for a last trip to Steve K for a final color sand, buff and alignment trunk, engine lid, front bonnet and doors. I pick it up next thursday for a few more jobs to do on the interior and a few electrical glitches then the owner flies out from New York to drive it on Monday, the pressure is on!!
The engine is in and next week, road testing begins.
The engine is in after running it for numerous heat cycles on the engine stand. Next week road testing.
The engine coming off the test stand ready for install tomorrow!
Off the lift and on the ground. Using Rob’s Dino wheel badges (Only the Best).
