    Is this the same time capsule car you took pictures of a while back? The one with the brush mistake?

    Thank you everyone! Im happy with the new place, just need to do some finishing touches.

    The boxer continues to come apart. This is the car that was outside for 5 years, broken windshield etc. Its all original though so im photographing it to death for my own records.

    Some shots of the blacked out parts and some factory sloppiness. Cool stuff.

    A new shop is always a bonus, room to stretch!
    That is awesome to have a true reference car like this. So, do you re-create the factory sloppiness in the restoration?
    I know with the very early cars, there would be differences between the left and right hand sides of the car, as one guy worked on one side and another guy worked on the other.

    Congrats on the new house Paul, your new workspace looks great! I'm hoping you still have plans to do the ITB's on the 308 this spring. Cheers, Bernie.

    I was going to ask the same thing about the sloppiness. When I worked in Hollywood as a propmaster, the shop foreman told me to 'spiff up' an original Terminator robot from the Schwarzenegger movie. There was silver tape covering a crack in the hip joint. I has started to mix some resin to fill it in and he freak out. Turns out he only wanted the dust cleaned off. Everything that was done during production was film accurate and must be left alone.
