Pictures of Restoration part 3

Well, the last couple of days have been pretty busy. Last minute 'effing around to get the car ready for paint.

I knew the car had been hit in the back so I took the tank out so the body guy can weld in new metal. Lots of rust and damage.

So

The flat bed arrives and the driver tells me he doesn't like to load on the driveway.
"Why?" I ask.
"Just in case a hydraulic line goes, the fluid will ruin your driveway" he says.
"Never happen" I say. "Load it up!"

Exactly 30 seconds later the line breaks and I have 15 gallons of fluid running down the drive.

They had to call a second truck

If you look carefully you can see the pool of fluid which has since melted the pavement and made me ever popular with the neighbours.

Hydraulic fluid will eat asphalt if left on the drive way for any length of time. Stuff is horrible, I power washed the drive four 'effing times and I still didn't get all of it off.

On the plus side, look what I got.

damn! ... now that's what I call bad luck! .. so you'll need to get repaved then I assume?

Will you be taking progress pics from the shop too? The rust around the tank actually isn't all that bad...

Hopefully,

I won't have to repave, got to it with the pressure washer pretty quick.

As for follow up pics, once the pistons arrive from Germany in a couple of weeks I'm taking the moving parts to the machine shop. They'll measure and ballance everything plus paint and hone the block. I'll post some more photos once assembly begins.

What machine shop are you taking it to and do they do Dynamic balencing, I'm building a Diesel motor and want to balence out the full motor.
