The interior is painted!

    So this moment finally has came. Hard to belive that we are reached this phase after a so lengthy and painfull journey! The interior, trunk and engine bay are painted along with some small parts (dashboard grills, tail light housing, radio plate off, etc.). I could not resist to put together the snowflakes immediately, they look stunning in their shiny new coat and with nos Hella lenses together with rechromed rings and brand new bearings! 

    Next is the rest of the body, the car is going to be delivered soon to the painting chamber where it will get the final twicking and preparation and of course the finishing coats as well. It won't be a show and shine car for sure, the body work would not let us to get to that level, probably it won't win any prize or praise, but fuck it, let it be usable and fun even with its many issues and ugly details. 

    Once the paintjob will have been done we would deliver the pan to a shop to get a refurbinished break system (it got old and drain during the long stand by period) as well as the periodically accurate chromed pedals, painted gearshifter and handbreak.
