Inside the trunk, where the 3M Body Defender coating has been applied. This coating will allow the trunk to be used without worry of scratching.



The 3M coating was also applied to the entire bottom side of the body shell to prevent rock chips, reduce noise, and protect the tub.


The subframe is carefully rejoined with the body, and the freshly painted suspension parts are reinstalled.

Soon, the car is a roller again and it heads back to the body shop for final bodywork and priming.





The removable panels, hood, decklid, fenders, doors, valances, etc., are cleaned and hung in the booth for final priming.

Inside the body shell, the crew installed the mounting bracket for the Vintage Air Gen 4 air conditioning system. Although the Vintage Air kit comes with screw-in hangers, we find that welding the brackets to the inside of the car allows us to tuck it up as high as we can and make for a cleaner installation.



No that the exterior panels have all been bodyworked and are straight, the body shop crew turns to detail items like the dashboard, firewall, door jambs, and cowl areas.
