Looks like this car is in primer and getting ready for its paint color.
What a long a tedious process. But the end result it simply amazing.

Now I am entering the paint booth stage, I was promised April 25th the car would be all painted and off to assembly.
The color we have chosen is a Dino color, dark silver in tone but in the sunlight has a hint of light blue.

The interior tan leather, keeping the original black vinyl dash and center console.

Hey guys

BS1492 is finally out of the paint and body shop.

It's now into the race shop where we will finish the restoration.

I jumped into the easy work right away.

I am currently putting up my engine bay weather strip.
I was sent a two types of gaskets for the engine bay.

Would someone be able to email me or post pictures of their gaskets of the engine bay gasket.
Is there a hood gasket surround?

Any picture would be greatly appreacited.

Thanks
Olivier
