After dismantling every single bit and nut from the white chassis and putting it into a rotisserie, i wasn’t really sure how to continue work. Since the shell was in a such bad condition, despite looking very good when i bought it. Underneath the paint it was all rust and bondo and bad metal-patchwork.
Got it dismantled to bare shell anyway and after talking to the bodyshop guy we decided to rather save the second chassis than the first. From this point on the restauration somehow got a bit more serious and professional.
Here is the last time the two were seen together. After this pic was taken the white one was sold as a parts-car to a friend and the black has been at the bodyshop since then, slowly returning to it’s former glory.
Meanwhile i’ve collected a big area full of NOS and aftermarket parts, some plans have slightly changed since the beginning and it has been quite the oddyssey so far. I’m pretty sure the trouble will continue. But i guess that’s half the fun, right? Challenge accepted 🙂
