With the car back from the media blasters, it's easy to find all the 80's style repair work.
I'll make sure all of the brazing is removed when the new panels are installed.
Keith Sim has worked his magic again,all the rust issues and previous repairs have been dealt with. Fresh new AMD sheet metal in it's place.
Now we wait until the body shop can take it. In the mean time I'll tackle the components.
Wiper motor, blower motor and latches restored by Stephan Fournier.
Both cars are having components restored at the same time.
Body is now complete and ready for body and paint work. Again, the pros at Waterdown Collision get the nod to lay down some beautiful FE5 red paint....Can't wait.
With the crew at Waterdown Collision working steady, it won't take long at all to get this beauty back looking new again.
Here's the car in final prime waiting to be blocked smooth and straight !
Got the car back. I've never seen FE5 look so good.
Can't wait to start putting this car back together....
After a couple of glamour shots with it's sequential sister...I moved the car to my shop to start assembly !
Front and rear suspension is in, The motor looks beautiful between those shock towers. Just waiting on the A/C lines to be re-plated and we'll be good to go.
The vinyl roof will come next.
One nice addition which is not on the broadcast sheet is the white side stripes. What a beautiful addition, they really pop !
Stephan Fournier did a wonderful job restoring original A/C hoses and lines, they really finish off the engine compartment....The crowning
ALL DONE !
