Another Giulietta transformation begins

Now that we got four cars out of the way and awaiting paint work we are beginning to work on a 1961 Giulietta Spider. Additional photos can be viewed at AISLLC

Nothing seems the same when undressed.

Here are a few photos of the extensive cosmetic surgery required once all paint and filler was removed.

Lionel, what caused the buckling in the internal bracing behind the right rear quarter panel?

That was a collision on the side panel and that is why I am replacing the entire quarter panel.

Giulietta Metal work full Steam Ahead!!!!

Now that all rusted and damaged metal pieces have been removed we are moving full steam ahead and expect to have all the replacement panels that we fabricated as well as the ones used from a donor car either installed or ready to be installed. With luck, we expect to have all the metal work done within the next couple of month. Lets, see!


Additional photos depicting progress to date can be viewed at AISLLC

Old floors, trunk, rockers, inner structural parts, and more where placed on the curve for trash pick up.

Structural and floors almost done

The 1961 Giulietta is moving with amazing rhythm and speed. As of today, the cabin floors, trunk floor and all structural components are nearly completed. Of course, not including some of the outer sheetmetal work already done. With luck, and weather permits, we hope to have all the metalwork done by the end of January.

Considering that this vehicle had to be nearly reconstructed where we fabricated all the panels at our shop it would be fair to say that this has been good progress.

That said, anyone out there with a bad tub and want to sell it to me feel free to contact me offline to discuss.

Enjoy the photos and remember, more work progress can be viewed at AISLLC

Here are the most recent photos of the completed floor pans. The next step will be to complete installing the inner rockers and outer rockers.

"BTW" We have all these parts shown here available for sale. Whether you need a trunk floor, rocker assembly, complete floors or any other structural parts I have it. Some of these already in stock. www.aisllc.smugmug.com is a good research tool to view how we install all these parts from beginning to end.

Anyone interested in purchasing some of these panels feel free to contact me at 972-849-6306 and I will be happy to provide a price listing for any required parts.

Enjoy the photos

Just a little bit closer

Current transformation for Giulietta Spider AR*171268 is on track and updates can be viewed at:

thegiuliettashop.com

I have received a number of requests to post photos that includes time spent on each particular section of the specific metal restoration process instead of a total to date hrs completed. As a result, I will be sharing a breakdown on hrs spent on each car so that the process becomes more meaningful to everyone.

Lionel

I understand you have taken some pretty public pasting over your "commercialism"... I find it pretty shameful and down right disgusting that pettiness can creep (npi) into your contributions even after the mounds of FREE posts you contribute that are quite valuable. I guess it goes with the territory.
