Yesterday, after an half day of relaxing I was sober again (is that the right word?) and I could start again with working on the car. Sanded several things, masked some things and then again it was time for spraying again. For some reason I mixed the paint too thin so I get 'lopers' all the time. Bad poop because then I have to sand again.

Today I started sanding again, degreasing, etc. and finally some painting in red and clear.

Last ten parts sprayed red last night. Now only 25 - 30 parts have to be sprayed black and then finally the assemblage can begin.

I dunno, if I had freshly painted parts I'd be *dyin'* to put it back together...of course I probably wouldn't have time. :( Can't wait till you start reassembly!

I figured you would still be sorting nuts and bolts now. I don't see how you found time to work on the transaxle, too...


:lol:

Keep up the good work. I can't wait to see how the entire car turns out.

Last saturday I didn't had to work hole day, so I could work on my car again.
Here some pics.

Work place

Build-up the gearbox, mounted the gearbox, handbrake bracket, shifthandle and one front arm.

By the way, it was quite difficult to get the front arm in with the urethane stuff from Topline. Had to bend the mountings an little bit because the urethane is just to wide.

Also mounted the springplates. Now have to think of something so I can lift them up to the fixing point. Is this position any good for aan low bug??

Also mounted the two outer bearings in the IRS-arms and started with building up the brakes.
