Restoration Progress – Nov 2012

The quarter panel body work is almost done.

The original door panels I picked up on EBay were restored. The ones that were on the car were too far gone to repair.

The DZ 302 was rattle-can painted Chevy Orange at Precision Automotive, but Mike believes the shade of orange was not correct and is going to paint it correctly. He also coated the intake and restored the cap plug and re-installed it.

Rear End & Suspension parts restoration

Mike and the guys at Labrecque Autocraft have been restoring suspension, rear-end, and misc components. Mike sent me these pictures today.

Metal Work, October 2012

Mike and his crew are finishing off the metal work. He has removed as little of the original sheet metal as he could and pieces were either fabricated or cut out of new panels to replace sections that were heavily pitted with holes or rusted through.
