Thanks very much - so looks like you can do all this without having to remove much else - which was my initial concern. Thanks for the advice.

Regards
Steve

Yes, just the trunk wall / heatshield should slide out through the trunk. Good luck !

It was another rewarding afternoon in the garage. God I love this stuff, when it goes well

I was able to get the front wheels off to get new tires tomorrow. This gave me the access to the front cavities. Once again, luckily no rot.

Buying a car sight unseen from afar, you never truly know what you have until you look for yourself. I've dodged the Reeper successfully for the 8th time. Better not roll those dice again since I just jinxed it.

Check out this technique.
Shop air & back pack blower to clear debris and road dust, then rust spray down line.
Then blow the rust spray down the rocker panels and chasis tubes using the back pack blower once again !

The nose cavity looked great. This area had been mostly treated before and was still in good condition, so I just blew things out with shop air and sprayed a little Fluid Film to area not previously covered.

Decided to fit new trim and paint. It's amazing what a little spray paint will do for 45 year old fiberglass !

Passenger front wheel well tomorrow....

Nice work, Skipp. However, I don't know what you paid, but knowing what these go for it's a bit shocking some of the work this car needed.

Thanks Dave. It was well bought and I assure you this is better than most in unrestored Dino Land. It's a solid and complete car that needed some " rejuvenation" due to lack of use. The price more than reflected all this.

This reminds me when I restored my Fiat dino spider 2.4
Took me 2 years none stop. But the end product was a real success story. Your car looks amazing.

Keep it up.

I am impressed with your efforts to correct and sort out the issues you have identified.

With respect to the rocker panels, they are supposed to be finished with something more akin to a matte/satin black. See pages 222-223 of the Dino Compendium. It looks like you have undercoating (or something similar) instead. That can be addressed later though because the goal now is to protect your Dino and get in on the road so you can enjoy it again without worrying about underpanels flying off!!

Thanks Wael & Mark. It's been a labor of love and has given me a new appreciation for the incredible number of hours put in by actual restorers.
Everything is fiddley and takes much longer than it looks.

More progress:

Improvised tool to extract old rivets from frame tube and managed to fit vaccum attachments into the tube to clear any debris and sand prior to rust spray.

Wheels mounted !
