Doing calipers today. Taking apart to rebuild after they are replated cad yellow.
The interior pieces are being covered in Dino Vinyl and the dash with mousehair from the Netherlands.
With the body now out of the shop and being media blasted it’s time to turn my attention to refurbishing the parts. I decided to start with the suspension, where all bushings, seals, bearings, shocks will be replaced and the parts will be replated. I got the A arms and sway bars back from the powder coater today.
All the fiberglass is now removed and ready to be media blasted.
If you want a really good job with are the metal exposed and blasted you have to take out the fiberglass. Kind of a big job for sure but worth the added time it takes for the results
I took the floorpan off which took all day seeing that it was coated with some very heavy undercoat and I couldn’t see the hundreds of rivets that hold it on that all needed drilled out. A few more parts to come off then ready to be media blasted.
More parts removed allowing the Dino to be mounted to a rotisserie. There is a huge advantage in doing this. as areas can be addressed that otherwise would be neglected. I removed all the wiring which is a mind boggling job! Even harder when it comes time to put in back in.
The motor is at Cavallo Motorsports for a rebuild. In the meantime more and more parts are being taken off getting it ready to go to paint and body work.
