Making progress

I’m actually making some progress in the tectyl scraping business. Before I thought it would be much harder to get it off, but I have to say it’s going pretty well (or it looks easy because my head is getting all fucked up by sniffing these gasses coming off of the heated up tectyl 😉 ). I think I’m now halfway there.

I’m also still looking for someone who can fix the small rusty spots on the car. I hope this person is also able to do the painting as well. It’s also still a possibility the car will go to a repair shop, but thats probably gonna be more expensive. As you see I’m still figuring out what to do ;).

Still a weird sight seeing the Volvo on it’s side

And I’m saving some money for these 15″ 5,5J 123GT bad boys (60’s bad boys :D). I now have the 15″ 4,5J standard rims, but these 15″ look much better on the car (see example bottom picture) because these rims are 1″ wider. They now have a 8% discount 1ea so I’m not going to wait too long! I like the Minilites more, but these are very rare and very, very expensive.

Car back on it’s side again

The restoration stand has been strengthened (my father welded it, it has gained about 20 kilo’s of welding wire and it can hold a tug boat now 😉 ), painted it, installed the car again and continued with removing of the tectyl.

This is better than scraping when lying on my back!

Also visited my uncle who is restoring a Nekaf M38a1 truck (a in Holland license build Willy Jeep), which was used by the Dutch military back in the days. My uncle, who served in the military, also worked on these 4X4’s back then, so I guess, in a way it’s a bit the same story as me and my Volvo ;). Anyways, it’s a nice project! I hope to see it back on it’s wheels again some day!
