240Z: Visiting the bodyshop and Diff strap mounts assembled

Last post of the year. Nothing huge, but wanted to share the progress.
This week i visited the bodyshop to pick up some unused parts and had a look at t he latest work: The rear quarter panel is in, as is the inner arch. The outer arch has ben reshaped to fit the original bodylines. The repair panels have a different “softer” shape, compared to the original lines. but only visible if you know the details.

Currently he’s reworking the think soft “edge” (where the black line is). Most of owners probably haven’t even noticed there’s an edge. but my bodyshop guy is a perfectionist. that’s why it takes  a lot of time. anyhow. The body is getting a concours level restauration 🙂 Also the tank filler  “pocket” has been removed to get a little rust treatment, and to have better access to the inside of the rear quarters.

And at home i’ve been puzzling together various parts laying around. Like this Differential strap mounts: 

Now freshly assembled with fresh zinc plated bolts and tubes and powdercoated base mounts. Perfect.
