Bodywork continues but I can now see the end of this chapter , all rust-issues solved (some minor blasting / grinding left) . Finally got round to fixing the. body to my rotisserie to finish of underside and put some underproofing/paint on that.

Put a few hours into panelgapping doors and hood , still have the rear lid to do.
I love seeing how you attached the chassis to the rotisserie. Well done.

Finally decided what color it is going to be, many people seem to like Ceylon , I am unfortunatly not one of them.. New color for this will be Polaris 060.

Primed and sealed underside , put one layer of temadur 20 , one layer of Teroson Terotex s3000 and a final layer of silver 2k paint.

Got the car down from the rotisserie and started to fit the sill-covers , did not really liked how the fitted so I made new "ends" in the rear that are 8 mm longer . This made the fit much better . I also "upgraded" from fastning the sillcovers with sheetmetalscrews and instead installed M4 nut inserts that I dipped in epoxi during fitting.

Got primer and seal in the enginebay also and put a layer of silver there also, although painter will later do this to a more proffesional finish.

Speaking of other restorations, you should post some pics of your Alfa for the many Alfa enthusiasts here on the forum. I love it.

Great work as usual!

Hi there
The work you have carried out on your car is amazing and the standards that you have achieved are really above and beyond !!
You are a true and true craftsman, your metal working and fabrication skills are amazing.
well done with the progress so far !!
That is some transformation , especially considering what you started with.
Work like yours inspires the rest of us to keep on going with our projects.
Keep it up !! :)

Modified exhaustside enginemount.

My car has factory AC which I think is really nice , got inspired from the Sanden 508 DIY thread and orderd a compressor and condensor. Compressor now fitted , brackets etc will be zinc-plated later.

Took my windowmotors apart, cleaned them and put a 0.45 mm shim in the bottom to get a decent play and speed to them again.

36 Months after restoration began I collected the car from paint today. Very pleased with the result. Doors and lids are only put in place to be able to get the car home so there is some aligment work to be done.
