Thanks for asking. There is a steady but slow progress. I would actually like to spend more time working on the giulietta, but my more than full time occupation as an engine professor and being a five kids father prevents that. So, a couple of hours a week is typically what I spend on the car. The best therapy in the world though. Finding time for writing about the progress is usually what comes last on the priority list. So, thanks for asking and making me do something about it.
Actually I came as far as having had all the paint ordered and delivered. Almost all metalwork from rear taillights to front end bulkhead has been finished with the exception of new door skins and adjusting the door gaps. So when I enter the garage it looks like there is not that much left to do. But that is kind of deceptive. The other day I made a list of things that needed to be fixed on the shell - before painting. It would be terrible to have to grind and weld after painting just because missing some stupid thing. The list contains 40 or so items typically with correcting dents, cleaning threads, welding in missing weld nuts, welding shut none original holes in the instrument panel, drilling holes and welding backing plates for the safety harness, cutting and welding in missing or replacing broken tabs for holding the cables etc etc all these things that need to be 100% and are so easily forgotten for a car that has been so rotten as mine and lacking signs of how things should be.
Now I will arrange some pics and describe how I did a new boot floor.
