I'd love access to your other images, measurements etc. My restorer is about to undertake a very similar rebuild on my '66 Duetto. We're replacing all sills also...

A few more photos now that the floor boards are done, the car has a coat of epoxy primer, and the front sheet metal is being fitted.

To get the best protection from corrosion a chromated epoxy primer like Glasurit 801- 703 will give the best protection. It must be painted directly on the bare metal.

I'll bet you are very excited about this. It's looking good.

I meant to ask if those are the original seat mounts. They look like it, but it's hard to tell from the pictures.

Jeff, I've not seen anyone apply paint to these areas before the fenders and nose panels are welded on to the car. How will all of the spot welds be rust proofed? And, what will they do to those areas where the paint is burned from the spot welding? I like the idea of getting a nice thick coat of paint in these areas. I'm just wondering how they will handle this.

That first bit of paint has got to be pretty exciting. Congratulations!

^ what Osso said ^

Maybe they're going to 3M bond the wings, I can't see how the nose will be done though

Weldable primer along the joints. Those edges that are going to be welded together, are not painted red. After welding, they'll go over the welds with a coat of primer.

I've been keeping my fingers crossed that the panel gaps would look correct. Everything is still being held with clamps, but so far, the gaps are looking good.

And although the paint seemed a bit too red and not as orange as it should be, it compares nicely to the Rear Shock Cover Plates. These still have the original paint and they've been covered by the Rear Drape their entire life (just not glossy at all).

our car is coming along nicely.

That looks like an AMC Javelin next to your car.
