Waldek,
I’ve seen some good restorations in the past but nothing like this, you are way ahead in the details. I’m sure you are keeping an account of the cost factor (out of interest for us spectators atleast). Can’t wait to see what the bodywork will look like with the same attention to detail, specially the critical areas like the rocker panels and the A pillar innards.
Hats off!

Wasn't satisfied with previous result of calipers plating, so where redone, now are good to be rebuit.

Was little bit curious to see how intake manifolds will look assembled after renovation. Throttles where cleaned, regreased & polished inside; some parts where rebuild. On manifold used new yellow zinc bolts, and new SS closed type nuts.

Unfortunately here in Poland is already cold outside (today during the day was -2,5 C), so some of my work capabilities are limited to the closed space.

Dontcha just love plating and coatings.
Yes i do, it's very satisfying to watch for the transformation of the old part into a new one (it is not always successful, sometimes a few sets of parts are needed to achieve perfect result).
One question, why plate the rear trailing arms?
1. I make ultimate renovation (or at least i believe it blindly).
2. I want to make part last so long, so there was no need to make it again (at least by me).
3. Believe it or not but despite that rear trailing arms frames are made from pretty thick 2/3mm steel i saw sets with rust holes where you could freely put your fingers.

This week finally end up restoring my brass coolant tank.
Lower bracket was missing, so new one was made from stainless steel, glued on with high tempertature resistant adhesive for metal & painted with low temperature powder paint (backed in ca. 130-140C), so was no solder melting.

A couple of us have removed the black paint from the brass coolant tanks. And there is a polish we apply periodically. If you are interested, send me an email and I will send a photo. Steve O'Neill coupecs@aol.com

The straight one is throttle stop.
I recognize the throttle stop. I sold mine knowing that I had no other. Fortunately miklos and coupe king make reproductions

Last but not least, I was referring to this guy. I presume the big center hole is important and the two other holes are for bolts.

LOL, it’s a throttle stop. Hard to see here but it mounts vertically. I’ve never seen the V shaped piece.
