fits and starts

the prep has started again finally. The base grey primer has been put on and flaws being checked. Awais the painter seems to making it a labour of love... if only he would let it go and do it.

the car is finally in the paint booth

the car is finally in the paint booth although these pictures are form a few days ago. The sanding was done so that the excessive filler possibly seen in one of the earlier pictures was taken away. The painters apologised when I had a fit ... actually it was filler on tape to make a sharp crease....the sanding was then done on the upper apsect of the panel... and I checked with a magnet...

The red is the shade of the awning....the primer is actually grey

the hatch ... the hood( bonnet )

The rear hatcha nd the doors and the hood... bonnet are hanging on the wall of the paint shop after preparation and smooting.
The colour has been decided. ... interestingly there are three different shades on Rosso Competizione depending on the year. One is almost black in low light, the other gives a pink reflection and is lighter and there is one in the middle which is almost the same.

the 4c colour is pinkish, the new Giulia colour is the one that I liked and the painter did too.

I agree with your color selection (not that my choice is important) Either the darker hue or the middle one is a richer red, appropriate for the GTV 6.

Man! What these guys have done is amazing! This car has literally been resurrected from a scrap pile. I salute you kamhus!

finally painted

Here is not the finished article. That is some time away...ie needs slight sanding with the finest grit and then a final coat and two lacquer layers.

The colour started with a silver base coat and then a copper coat and finally the red....am going to ask for the fitting to be started soon.

in the air conditioning bay

the car has now been shifted to the AC bay. Having followed the discussions on the forum.. most people recommend the Sanden 307 or 308 both of which do not actually fit and are too long. The tech has decided on a smaller rotary compressor....

the picture of the car in the bay. Electrical wiring work being done also.

and the fiat spider... finished and home

the fiat spider has been finished and is home. a few things need to be ironed out. For example why did Fiat have to have a fiendishly compliacte coolong system. Looks like there is an airlock somewhere. It runs hot at times and cold at times.... I have just resigned myself to filling the radiator and burp / purge cap area occasionally. Driving it short distances.... and hopefully. But the intake growl of the webers and the exhaust sound... well.... heaven

Hi Kamhus, I suspect I speak for a number looking at this topic - can we see your entire collection?? You have diverse (and good!) taste - I am very curious...
Cheers
