This morning I met my Letter in the paint booth of the body&paint company. All over marker paint applied.

On several places there revealed rusting through holes, but I got evidence that my Letter was absolutely rustfree prior to apply the primer coat (20 kg, 44 lbs). All dents were pulled out prior to the sand blasting. The body is now straight.

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

So what are we looking at here Dieter? I see gloss white inside and primer outside? Is this in between sprays of the gloss white? Those rear corners look great from this view. It seems like they put lots of hours into getting that corrected.

Beltran - 2020-04-24 7:44 PM So what are we looking at here Dieter? I see gloss white inside and primer outside? Is this in between sprays of the gloss white? Those rear corners look great from this view. It seems like they put lots of hours into getting that corrected.

Thanks Mark

The drivers side corner is almost done. A small difference on the inner side of the fins will be corrected. The passenger side opening for the tail light is perfect. The drivers side opening has a small flat area to correct at the inside to the trunk opening.

To reveal... except of the undercarriage (already sand blasted and coated with charcoal grey color) the whole body outside and inside was sand blasted. Within a very, very short time between sand blasting (one apprentice of the body&paint shop assisted to vac clean the whole body from the sand), and applying the primer, the primer was applied (inside and outside of course). Even the inside of the roof and the underside of the parcel shell were sand blasted and coated with new primer.

Because the professional sand blaster used a very fine sand to sand blast, the result with primer is glossy.

I made a collection of 18 pictures where very small rusting through spots revealed. In my opinion it's too much to display here. From the boss of the body&paint shop I'll get a broad collection of pictures (plus a small movie) taken during the sand blasting. This is the evidence the whole process was done very carefully. Next work at the sand blasting company is to sand blast the trunk lid and small parts of the rear bumper mountings.

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

Thanks Serge

It's a hardtop coupe. I'm happy with the steel roof. The convertible has different hinges for the trunk lid and reinforcements between the sheet metal between the front end of the trunk opening and the attachement of the end of the soft top.

Kind regards

Dieter

Hi Ralf

It's not over, just getting worse. Because I'm all on my own to finance this adventure. From the environment here I live most people just giving me the advice to quit my hobby instead of to be solidarity in finacial ways. The solidarity is a one way from me to all others.

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

I decided to close the screw holes for the mouting of the remote push button for the seek function of the radio. As far as I remember, this push button was not connected to the wiring harness. I assisted the boss of the paint&body shop to mount a roof spoiler on hid Lancer Evo under build up again (after getting a full body restoration with a new color). When he has finished his own project he'll start on my Letter. Furthermor I brought a really big USB-stick to him. I'm getting a full documentation on pictures...

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

I got a vast collection of pictures from the body shop and the sand blasting. Only a few I'm displaying here.

One questing rose about the parcel shelf. In my opinion it should be flat table. But here I want to make it sure.

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

Update: I googled through my broad collection of pictures and got out, that the parcel shelf was flat (like a table on the upper side) until it was at the farmer smith shop. It will turn to flat soon.

Happy Restoring!

Today a short visit at the body&paint shop. The surface preparation process has begun at the firewall of the body. Two apprentices are working on Saturday and overtime to work from the front to the back. The outer shell the boss will do himself. Preparation of the deck lid (getting out small dents) has started as well. Soon the deck lid and the rear bumper mountings will go to the sand blaster.

The parcel shell is flat again.

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

BTW: no new pictures today

This day I went to the body&paint shop again. Since the pandemic shut down has released to a certain degree, the shop is flooded again with courant normale (work on contemporary cars). I could take some picutures...

Happy Restoring!

It's not exact what I wrote...

I have help from two muslim, living in Switzerland, and the two apprentices who are working overtime. Not from my family, my relatives, not from people who are claiming to be my friend, not from members here nor any who claims to be a Christ, an Atheist or not defined.

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

I'm getting another half year delay on the body. The shut down of Corona is releasing now, due to a very low ciffre of new cases. So the body&paint shop got flooded with work. One apprentice is in the hospital (accute appendicitis). The best on this scenario is - I got more time to save money. For the engine I'll keep the agreed time stamp for the delivery of the turn key ready engine /w power print out and test sheet. I still have the engine assembly stand.

For sure I'll find guys locally to mount the engine/trans combo into my Letter when it's ready.

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

BTW: right now I'm on a good way to finance the adventure.

Because of no work with my dump truck yesterday and today, I went to the body&paint shop. All the parts (there are a lot) from the front end are down in the shop again (stored on the first floor above). The shop owner prepared the trunk lid to dig out even the slightest imperfection (dent) prior to bring it the the sand blaster as well. He repaired a big dent in the shield below the radiator yoke and the apprentices are working on the battery tray, the vertical bar and more.

Happy Restoring!

Dieter
