Truly amazing work and a fantastic job documenting it. After just purchasing my own 72 junior 1600 in a similar condition to your 74 I plan to undertake the same path as you have and fully restore it. It is so so so nice to see how you have tackled and solved the issues of the restoration. Having a step by step guide with pictures to help me along the way is priceless.

It is time for another update. A couple of months ago I picked the car up from the painter, who did an absolutely amazing job spraying the car. The white parts are painted on, and the edges are razor sharp between the white and red parts. The paint job was ended of with 10 layers of clear coat, a wet sanding and a great polishing, so it looks absolutely fantastic.
I have moved overseas to California, and I brought the car with me. It took a couple of weeks crossing the Atlantic, and now I have slowly started rebuilding it. I am in no hurry, so it will take the time it takes.
After 4 years I took her out of the garage for a first gentle hand wash last weekend. There is still a few very small details here and there to be done, and it needs a 4 wheel alignment, but big picture: She is done!
