For some reason the reconditioning stopped in spring due to busy times in work and home. Since March I've spent very little time in the shop, mostly just cleaning , fixing and painting smaller parts and packing them for future use. More of these when it is time to install them. The hood, fenders and valance panels were finally installed after they had been painted on the inside. It is no use proceeding with installing more parts until the car has been painted and I do not have the necessary skills to finalize the bodywork. Obviously some one has been jumping on the roof which has left dents and humps on the roof metal. This kind of metal straightening is better to leave for someone who is more experienced. I had met a guy who has a shop nearby and offered to do the prepping. I contacted him in early summer again and we agreed the pricing and scheduled the car to be delivered in August, after we've had our vacations. And here we go.
Once the fitting and prepping is finished the hood, deck lid and doors will be detached for painting.
I must admit that the bad experiences I have with choosing a wrong guy to do the job for Destiny came in my mind. We'll see how it goes this time.
