Restoration and Rebuild Project

Bumpers Off

The bumpers are now off along with most of the trim, lights and the grill. All of this now needs to be cleaned and polished, which is my part of the project. The trim is probably the best part of the car at the moment.


A closer look at the sills has unfortunately discovered that they’ve been stuck on over the old ones with mastic.

The nearside front wing looks like it suffered the same fate too. There isn’t a lot holding the bottom in place and the white stuff looks like bathroom mastic.


The front valence looks reasonable at first glance but the top edge has lost it’s tabs and the welding of the headlight bowls is pretty poor. We’ll probably need a new valance and bowls.
