Progress update - May 2019


I am informed that the shell restoration is now underway. I haven't seen any pictures yet but I was asked a lot of questions about what changes I want to make and panels are being ordered.


Meanwhile I've been very busy restoring all the suspension and running gear. Some parts went to the shot blaster including the rear subframe which I also had powder coated. Everything else I have stripped down by hand, painted in POR15 (super expensive stuff) and finally a top coat of Rust-Oleum. I'll let the pics do the talking.




I have also had all the remaining parts made up for the supercharger conversion I am working on and I had the billet alloy part protected in Cerakote (ceramic coating) - yes it's as expensive as you think it is! Looks good though.
