Thanks a lot Serge. Is the baby the sister or brother of Cheyenne (apparently the older daugher)?

 

Dieter, this baby IS Cheyenne, look at the date of the picture (2000). You may have seen her now, 17 years old. When your Letter will have become rustfree and ready, she will be as well be ready for marry  . . . . still rustfree! 

Friendly  - SERGE -

Today I worked almost seven hours with no food and no beverage to remove the tar layer on the passenger room floor. More work with the heat gun at the undercarriage tomorrow.
Beside the works performed and documented with a picture, the rust damage at the passenger side door (top front of the inner structure) is repaired and also a rust hole near the mounting point of the body to the subframe (very rare damage according Emil).

Still there are small adjusting issues at the rear lamp (driver side). Remember, the complete corner is reconstructed due to an older accident.

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

BTW: at the passenger side c pillar was a crack in the fender at the front area of the c pillar - repaired...

I'm happy to see that there's a steady progress on your car Dieter! I bet there's less butterflies in your stomach when you look at your car now....

Thanks Wizard (Sven) for your encouraging words.
On Sunday I was working for 11 hours with the heat gun and two scrapers (a painters scraper and a wood worker scraper).

My open question is now: the routing of the weatherstrip between the inner and the outer front fender. Originally the weatherstrip was starting about two inches above the side fin of the outer front fender. But the question in discussion with Emil rose the question why not up to the corner at the inner fender...

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

BTW: I almost cleaned the complete front suspension (steering link, lower control arms), a part of the propeller shaft tunnel and the floor area next to the tunnel...

Yesterday evening I cleaned the ball joint areas on both front suspensions plus some more around the propeller shaft tunnel area. I think I do not have to remove the color, just the tar...

About the area around the position light/direction light case I'm really unhappy, It's ways too big (visible from the back)...

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

Early this week I called the company that's restoring the engine of my Letter. The engine is at the cylinder grinder's shop since weeks, the first piston is out (I'm so happy). At the time of the phone call the ultra sonic probe was not working correctly (at least a recalibration should be necessary) so I have to call again, next week, to hear if the block is still useable and what the next steps are.

 

I'n the mean time I'm removing the tar layer at the undercarrigage and wheel housings.

Happy Restoring!

Dieter
