I agree Tom, it would be nice, but unfortunately not all are like this producer, humble enough and then willing to accept advice from others. Many go on their way without listening to anyone, not even from those who have spent their entire lives to this work. And faced with criticism, even constructive, they prefer to use the formula: "we never had any complaints", which when used more than once becomes thereby false

ps. BTW in order to check and fix all the front panel bending radius, a dedicated wire mask will be made, as has already been done for the wheel arches.

Metal Work Done

Finally, metal Work is done, then my Giulietta is ready to the reassembling tests before going in the paint shop.

Last time I talked about a Nose wire mask, well, here is how my Metal master built it from scratch:







More detailed pictures Here (under construction) and Here (finished mask).

The frontal panel was the last work he did on the body. Here the results:










Everything has been made from scratch with millimetric precision: no more shoddy stamped panels on my car

Now it is time to fill the jar

I figured that since when that race car was in operation I was a teen and I am 72 now. But I am curious to know who he is, perhaps Alejandro can tell us. Enrique.
