Monza red refurb.
« on: February 15, 2014, 04:55:31 PM »
I have yet another car rolling into the shop.  Cause you can never have too many project  11.gif  I think this is Monza red but will be investigating further as I have time.  It needs a lot of panel replacements and the obvious paint job.  It may be for sale when I'm done, that's to be determined.

Well this car is a rotten mess also.  The owner has been over under my supervision digging into it and getting things ready for me to hack into. 



Closing panels....nah use a piece of blanket!!

Lifted the car off the engine.  The right inner wing actually ripped off accidently. Guess I'll be replacing that.   62.gif

Had a few moments to start putting the puzzle back together on the front right corner.  I decided the best way to go about doing this was to simply bolt a door to the door pillar panel and then fit the door to the frame, then tack the panel in place.  It still has a small amount of play in it and will need some adjoining panels put in place to make it rigid enough to take the door off.

That's just a test door perfect for fitting in situations like this.

This is a real project! Like any tho, you fix it one bad panel at a time and eventually it gets done. My old Jag was about this bad when I tackled it too.......took 4 years to finish it.

Is this the project that got stalled due to impending divorce?

How will you rig up a paint booth in the new shop so you don't have to worry about overspray on the other cars? I could imagine a set of visqueen type screens on tracks mounted to the ceiling, something like in a hospital room - would that be tight enough to contain it?
