Sweet Sassafrass indeed Ben!

Came home today from the blaster (a nice but long drive which passes through Valley Forge battlefield) and gave the 912R it's first real bath.

Getting the R dialed in for that. I'm also getting better at driving it fast.

Steve picked up a parts car ('66 912 below) with a decent engine lid (and complete 69 E motor!) i can repair.

Note: Steve is selling the car minus a few parts I think)

So back to the lid; I'd better visit the blaster (Great guy btw) before he's finished so it's prepped for metal repair.

We should visit the blaster anyway to be sure he focused in all of the areas I asked him to spend time on.

There are areas I told him not to worry about, (i.e. ceiling) which saves Steve money.

Another ivory car Steve, maybe a sign?:-)

Astrid and I picked up Steve's '67 today.

Much of the sand bounced out on the long drive home.

I need to get all parts sand free and epoxy primed asap.

This weekend will be devoted to getting sand out of the tub and panels and priming.

Still waiting for the sheet metal to start.

We also need front latch panel and the bumpers cannot be used. Some deep dents were uncovered above the taillights





Be sure to use a water/oil separator w your compressor when blowing off panels for painting. Lots of oil and moisture in tanks. Empty tanks daily.

There is double sided tape applied to the B pillar at the factory to presumably hold the door seal in place at that location.

It was painted over many moons ago but I noticed it due to the blasting.

I removed it to find the original Light Ivory paint applied by the factory in 1967.

It's beautiful paint still in person.

Sorry pics aren't loading

Thanks Flo, I shouldn't complain you're right. Everything still works!

For those that don't know, removal is finding pinch welds and drilling out about 100 factory pinch welds and 6 beads.

Best is use light and mark in advance then blow it out.

This was all real time. Blown out. See all the trapped rust?, glad I convinced you to replace at no charge Steve?;-)

Now more blasting of what will be sandwiched between the pan and new latch panel. I'll zinc prime in between.





All the tilting, vibration and grinding gets the sand out. I'll run a dehumidifier it the humidity comes prior to primer.

My kid's (15&13 yr old) birthdays party now.

That's All Folks!

Awful what happened today. Say a prayer for the victims in Vegas.

Welding the bageesus out of this pig. Acid etch removal of rust, reinforcing new suspension pan and all pick up points.

Does anyone have a pic of how the racing department reinforced the torsion bar tube to the central tunnel?


Don't judge I'll grind welds, this is a hot rod driver build and Foxy's waiting ��
