  1. So that's it! You are all up to date! From start to finish the process took about four and a half months. Lockdowns didn't help. There are some minor things like upholstery, engine detailing and chrome work to be done. I will see to them depending on Covid curfew and state of import restrictions. I will post an update once car is fully completed. I'll need to see Sylvi sir regarding the windscreen as well! I will run the car now until that time. So untill then, consider this project as complete. Hope you enjoyed this little journey with me. PM me, if you have any quest
  2. ..and away we went on some test drives...was inevitably spotted on the road
  3. So began the refitting process. The initial plan was to rechorme the buffers etc and complete the car in one go. but Covid and the restriction of movement had other ideas.

      Had a serious inquiry, posted a status asking about it. Came a few hours later to check for any answer and Lo and behold, it has disappeared cause of the bombardment of status updates from the fellow.

      hooker + udemy psychiatry course (for 9.99$ with black Friday discounts) = Problem Solved.

  5. Then the fenders were taken off to do some detailing due to overspray on chassis and suspension parts...and for new beading installation.
  6. After letting the paint 'cure' for a few days, we did some corrections and the first 'cut'. Dashboard was also painted by this time
  7. Heyyy @Ripper. Welcome back! Glad my thread did some good.
  8. Paint was done apart from dashboard and some other bits. Initial cut polish was yet to be done at this stage.
  9. Then at long last she went in for the ' final'.
  10. Approx 3 months in to project... After a colour was picked, the engine was pulled out and bay and bulkhead was finished in body colour. I was not present, so no pics. Body was prepped further with several guide coats and ironing out imperfections.
  11. Yes. Red on red will clash very badly. Not to forget I have to keep to original factory colour combos as much as possible.
  12. This is an age old argument. It all comes down to personal experience. I will not deride anyone for sanblasting their body. I have had less than optimal results with sand/media blasters. Let's say two out of three cars I had blasted came out less than satisfactory...I'll list some general reasons most older classic car(pre 1970) restorers stay away from blasting. The frame and chassis is a different matter though. I always get those sand blasted. On old metal rust tends to spread unevenly. The normal sandblasters available here, which are mostly used at 100psi or more and will l
