Rob’s 246 GTS 08450

Reassembly of Ferrari Dino #8450, Dino Restoration, Jon Gunderson

I started hanging parts on Rob’s car, starting with things I can put on that will not interfere with other parts or the wiring which will need to be done soon. It is nice putting clean parts on a clean car! I got it off the rotisserie after getting the floorpan back on. It’s much easier at this point to work off a lift versus rotisserie.

Ferrari Dino 246 GTS ready for reassembly, Dino Restoration, Jon Gunderson

I got Rob’s Dino back today ready for the start of reassembly tomorrow. I mounted it back on a rotisserie which I’ll only use for a few days, then everything will be done on the lift. The color is beautiful and one of my favorite Dino colors. Now if I can just remember where everything goes and where to start!! A very cool contrast with Eric’s Dino in the background, a before and after. The camera is for a time lapse, putting the car back together.  Every minute a photo will be taken which I will turn into a time lapse video.

Paint today!!! I went up to Steve K’s today to watch the paint process, what a great color!. Watching the clear going on bring the color to life. About 1 1/2 gallons of clear is used. It will be back in my hands a week from tomorrow to begin assembly which I’m guessing will take 5-6 weeks. It will be visiting cars and coffee a week from tomorrow on its way to my shop.
