I noticed that the plater disassembled your grill heart as well. How are you reassembling the horizontal slats back into the perimeter structure? There are small tabs; did you peen them over, epoxy?

Thanks

Kevin,

I am yet to send out the vehicle's brightwork to the plater. All the brightwork is been fitted, straightening, and repairs made prior to taking to the plater. My experience has been less than pleasant when dealing with platers. Some platers do not spend time making the correct repairs and straightening on the parts. They tend to run the part on a belt sander until the remove the waives from the part and by which time the parts are paper thin.

On the SS heart center grill there are two separate pieces that are screwed on the side ( the heart and the horizontal bars). Once you remove the horizontal bars from the heart, these can then be taken apart by carefully unbending the folding taps. The taps connect at both ends perpendicularly to each individual bar. Hope that helps.

Lionel

All the metal and body work is done on the former Bondo Sculpture. It is currently in primer awaiting paint. That said, It will take about a year from this point to complete and upon completion I will be making the car available for sale.

This will be a first class no expense-spared restoration with many new old stock parts and will be offered to the Serious and discriminating buyer only. I will be updating photos soon.

Finally, it is green again.

Former Bondo sculpture is back to its original state and original color. Assembly will start soon.

lol ... well they sure use it in New Zealand! and the second hand door I bought for my GTV in Sydney, Australia turned my shed white when I tried to find metal with a wire brush attachment in my grinder , close to a half an inch thick in places on the skin! Looked so nice and straight when I bought it ...
