I know it doesn't look like it but it was ready to be torn apart and repainted. The paint was really tired and was kind of a five footer. There were signs of bubbling at the base of the targa window and windshield. It is 41 years old and I expected there was hidden rust that I would uncover when I had it apart.


The great news for me is that the rust is confined to the targa window base, windshield bottom corners, and the fender mating areas. None of it has rusted thru to the other side. I expect that it will only need to be blasted, maybe filled a little, then primed and painted. I was going to strip the fender wells and bottom but I have found no rust so I am leaving them original. Pan is totally solid with no rust anywhere. Same for the interior and inside of the frunk. I'll have him repaint the engine compartment just to clean it up.


So here is the rust... sorry I cannot give you more gore.


And here it is ready for the painter to come over on Monday and take a look and see when I can get on his schedule... I still have to strip parts off the doors and a few other bits.

The joy of getting the car off to paint is only balanced out when you see three guys working on your car making good progress and you realize that your paying them by the hour everyday for the next couple of months.

Thanks for the good vibes.


Paint is being done by the same guy in Damascus who did John Hallens 69T a few years ago. He is going to do all the work himself. He hopes to have the body shell in primer in 4 weeks then work on the removed parts. Then into the paint booth. Thinking maybe 3 months or so.... yeah right.


Unless he uncovers something hidden when he strips the shell the only rust repair seems to be around the base of the windshield and targa window, but even there not so bad.


No engine rebuild necessary. The engine has something like 15-20k on a rebuild in 1991. Still has 2-3% leakdown and burns no oil that I can tell. I will be cleaning up and freshening the exterior of the engine and replacing every seal and rubber part since it is vacuum leak city in there.
