Start of Restoration in 2006

In this newly added chapter (July 2014)  we will describe the paint process. Here the plan we intend to follow:


1. Prime everything with branths "nitrofest" (already done during the restauration of the sheet metal).

2. Cleaning with silicon remover.

3. Filling with epoxy filler.

4. Sanding with 120-grit sandpaper (hand and machine sanding).

5. Prime again with "nitrofest".

6. Hand over parts to a professional Paintshop


All material we bought at

As everything is very rough and all sheet metals show many small dents and rust marks the result will be ok, but not as of the assembly line.

The steps 1 -4  are finished on the main body , but that took 2 month, it is very boring, and everything is covered with dust.

November 18th: All parts painted



September 19th 2014

Fenders, running boards and splash aprons are filled.

All parts are primed again and ready for the final paint.

The aluminium rails we treated with metal ready before painting.

We decided for pbvious reason to have the car painted professionally.

All parts are back from the paint shop.
