Here I am with some fresh news and photos.
The metal work is on a great speed and this week the doors were finished.
This week I think the rear and cowl grill will be finished too.
The doors gave us some trouble and we had to send them to sandblast to clean the metal, not the panel, but the interior. By the end a new panel was used. The drivers door was in bad shape, worst than the passenger side.
On Saturday we remove the symbols, rear spoiler and rear lights. Only the bumper remain.
I hope the rear and front are better than the doors…
Let’s see the photos!
Doors and interior separated…
Doors ready. The green painting is a spray to protect the metal for the rust.
Mr.Vitorino looking for some rust…ahahahah
This was a corner of one door…tons of rust…
Under the cowl grill the scenery is good. I was a little bit worried about it…true..but Mr.Vitorino said that’s ok…the surprise is next…
Under the grill…
The grill had to high pointson both sides, like a screw, but…it wasn’t what we thought…
Somebody before had covered the rust on the panel with iron mass and hammered the rust point down. With time the mass began to crack…and the result was this…
Mr.Vitorino immediatly started to work and found tons of rust!
All this marerial, like a spounge, hide the rust!
Again the original blue!
The spoiler removed and a cracked srew…
The bumper is not for my serie, I’ll remove it…only the enter is needed!
I’ll use charcoal colour to paint the structures…
Again the original blue and the rear door in excellent shape!!! No intervention needed!
My homework is now recover the symbols and clean some parts.
Mr. Vitorino trying to get the rear lights…not an easy task!
