240Z Project

240Z: Off to the bodyshop – 2nd attempt

Finally – the day has come, where the car left the home for the second time for a visit at a bodyshop. This time a different one…

The agreed timeline is to complete the body until the end of the year (roughly). I said quality comes before a tough timeline, but also they agreed on not letting the car sit in a corner for 5 years like the previous panelbeater did…
The plan is to straighten the chassis, which needs a bit alignment, replace all rusty panels and then add the bodypanels and align all gaps, before having everything dismantled again and ready for the paintshop….

And until then i’ll plan my next steps. They already took some panels with them too, but i’ll visit them soon, bring the passenger side door and seat rail for test fit and have a look around their shop.
I’m as motivated as i haven’t been in a long while to push this project as far as possible again…
