Correct, my 71 does not have a indicator either!
Believe me....I wish that day was tomorrow! But no such luck...I tried not look too far ahead too many times on this project (I didn't want to get overwhelmed). I can say though that I've started in some way or another on every aspect of the remaining tasks....drivetrain, engine, interior and suspension.ok. Getting really close now. Half the bb is going to want to attend the starting ceremony.
What's left, anyway? I can remember when I was close to the end on my Jr. Z build I had been spending so much time zooming in on details that I nearly forgot that I was working on a car!
Por 15, waxoil, zink spray?Time for a small update. I 'm finally at the point of reassembling some of the other systems...like the fuel lines. I stayed with steel as the material of choice...with the added benefit that these come copper lined. It's a rather simple task of using the originals as the template for the new.

New grommets from gprocket worked like a charm to hold the lines firmly in position. I also kept the foam/rubber coverings....corrosion is not an issue to me since this car won't be driven very often (if at all) in poor weather conditions.....but the foam protect the line from potential stone fragment punctures.

I also finally got around to applying rocker guard undercoating all underneath the car.

This is another one of those tasks that would have been ideally done when I had the car in the paint shop. But I managed to get it done regardless. I was quite happy with how it turned out after all that effort.

Underneath I first applied self etching primer....followed by two heavy coats of rust paint (body coloured). Recently I applied the rocker guard using a ShotZ gun. I used Eastwoods internal coating paint/primer....Por 15, waxoil, zink spray? ...
Thx. This part deserves a long string and a time lapse video all its own.Underneath I first applied self etching primer....followed by two heavy coats of rust paint (body coloured). Recently I applied the rocker guard using a ShotZ gun. I used Eastwoods internal coating paint/primer....
I bought 6 cans...but only needed at most 3. This stuff creeps very effectively in all the cracks and seems....almost too well. Make sure to tape off the openings that you don't want this stuff to ooze out from....cause it'll land on everything. It's very thin and liquidy....but dries quickly as well. I'll follow this up with this was based spray....
I've applied this product underneath the stainless steel trims on the body work....like the door sill trim. This should be sufficient for the life of this car....considering that she'll be a garage queen from this day on.
Well if the car is already painted.....and the cavity paint is applied in the "A" or "B" pillar cavities for example.....be carefull because this stuff will ooze out and drip out onto the external surface in some spots. Like through the small holes for the door seal channel retainers. This happened to me and this stuff will flash off quickly...leaving a little mess to clean up.....if it gets onto the rubbers...it's hard to wipe off.........One more quick question :
Where did you NOT want the protection to go (what part are you saying needs to get plugged)?
Thanks Brad. I didn't see the latest prices on BAT no.....but I'm glad to hear that for sure.Rossano, You are going to have the best 1750 GTV around, did you see what the last two USA S1 1750 GTVs sold for on BaT? I like the black underbody, Alfa may have painted underbodies same color as the top of the car but that was for economic reasons.
