Love it. Making great progress but taking your time and getting it right.
Indeed I will...but this is a bit of a double edged sword situation....because these smaller details are killing any momentum that I manage to gain on the bigger items. This is where paying more for an already driveable car beats buying a way less expensive (abandoned one).Looking good. You'll appreciate the precision, attention to detail and care every time you look at it or drive it.
...details ...details....so many more to come...Wow
Thanks Ken.Very nice Rossano!
I'd say more determined than brave...:smile2:Well done Rossano. You are a very brave man!
Well...tbh perfection is very difficult to achieve ...as I'm learning on this journey. But yes I am happy with the project so far.Fantastic! You have to be very gratified that it's coming out so perfect.
True indeed....but you're saving yourself from frustration when things go amiss.....and things always go amiss especially when one has not done that particular task before.Look at it this way, it's costing me $300 to have the front and back windows removed and re installed, so you are saving oodles of money :smile2:
LOL.....fiction eh?....well it certainly feels that way sometimes for me as well. But I'm happy you're drawing this added benefit from the thread.Fantastic thread, I am reading it as a fiction.
And the car is absolutely gorgeous.
Finished it will be better than new.
complimenti per lavoro e passione
Jr Z eh? Nice....that was another model I would have loved to tackle on a restoration. But after this one's done...I need to take a long look at myself in the mirror if I even think about entertaining that!...still...Cool that both of our journeys are coming to a new beginning (I won't say end). I'm finishing up my Junior Z at the same time. It's funny as I've been watching your work for so many years - it was both a source of inspiration and fascination. Some of the best reading I've had - certainly better than reading the news!
There's going to be some seriously loud cheering when you turn that key. You should reach out to the Petrolicious folks. I'm sure they'd love to do a film about you and your car. It's going to be a serious standout.
I'm also having someone else install the new headliner :smile2:True indeed....but you're saving yourself from frustration when things go amiss.....and things always go amiss especially when one has not done that particular task before.
It wouldn't be very interesting..... Pull engine, deliver car, write cheques, pick up car, put engine back in then drive car (I hope) :smile2:Alright! Now is the perfect time to start up a new restoration thread Ken. I mean now that you're down to one GTV....you'll surely have the time on your hands to do it....:wink2:
Well done! Was this entirely solo? If so even more impressive!The order I did this in may not be the ideal and one which I will not repeat when I go to do the front window trim. I first installed the trim on the seal then on the window...which proved to be a real battle (my hands are still hurting as I write). With the trim on the seal it was extremely difficult to get it to seat on the window since it needs to stretch around the window contour and the aluminum trim is not favorable to being stretched......but I got it done.
Yes I did it solo and I found that it was not as difficult as I thought it was going to be. For the front screen I will be doing it in the order you stated.....which BTW is one recommended by a few other Alfabb'ers as well.....I just wish I had spotted their recommendations earlier.Well done! Was this entirely solo? If so even more impressive!
Can you enlighten us as to which order of assembly you'll use for the front screen? My understanding is that the trim must be in place before the glass is on the body, so I suppose the only other way to approach it would be seal onto glass, trim onto seal, assembly onto body?
