I have a rolling shell, but I need to find some parts, a lot of rusty parts! I have access to a blasting cabinet, so I will be able to properly treat for rust, clean, and prime as I go. The search continues.
Cleaned a prepped windows wipers mechanism. Researching ways to test the motor before itís in the car with a harness.
Disassembled the convertible rear quarter panels. Blasted the medal panels.
Primed and as good as new.
More bead blasting.
Steering column bracket. Apparently they donít make repos?
Disassembled a couple of complete doors so I have an assortment of lock mechanisms, latches, latch rods, handles, vent window trim, and convertible window frames. Iím told coupe and convertible window frames are not interchangeable. Iíll be going with power windows, so I donít need the window cranks. Allocated rear window frames and hardware.
Allocated a 2nd pair of fenders. Not the best pair, but I now have options for fitment. Donít worry, this donor car is a T code coupe and both A and B pillars are heavily rusted. It has no options and 13Ē rims?
Pony door lights
A convertible top. Looks complete with the exception of one missing nut. I wonít know what Iím up against until disassembly, but itís going to need some attention.
Hunt, find, unbolt, clean, bead blast, sand, prime, and repeat.
