Having met some of the NW members at Brunings Auto Design yesterday -- and meeting Youthpastor (Chris) and seeing his newest project - I thought I'd let him view this car I'm building for a friend that had a stroke and couldn't start the car of his dreams, let alone build it... so I "rescued" the car and am putting it together for him. All the parts were purchased -- and a little of the work was started but I had already done a great deal of that work to start with - so figured I'd just jump in and finish it for him... like I didn't have anything to do to start with... :>)
I had already pulled the body of the original chassis -- modified the floors and trunk slicked the firewall - and built a new tranny tunnel... This car is purely a driver - no shows - no mirrors...
Did I mention - that when he couldn't come up with a painter - I said 'oh what the hell - I'll just shoot the thing myself (firewall work only - rest of the car was already done). As I left the shop I looked back and had to take this pic!
A little bodywork was needed to make it flat... Did I mention I HATE bondo and "dirt and dust" in my "shed"??
The PPG single stage urethane turned out "okay".... as did my bodywork... :>)
He already had the interior done -- and is keeping with the 210 'Theme'... That's the front seat sitting on the floor. I had to clean the bottom side completely - despite him not wanting to do this... "it's just a driver" -- but I couldn't stand to drop this on a brand new AME chassis with all the 'crud' on the bottom and it's a lot easier on the rotisserie!!
