1968 Chevelle Resto-mod

Leon Betts

Our 1968 Chevelle resto-mod project is now on the down-hill run. After letting the primer cure for a couple of weeks it was time to separate the body from the chassis one last time to allow painting prep to begin.

Once the body was on the rotisserie Roland and Dave made short work of the last few metalwork tasks before delivering the body the paint shop.

Rob and Alex have commenced prepping the firewall and underside for paint. This afternoon I watched Rob filling some unwanted holes in the firewall with a welder while Alex finished the job with a grinder...a great demonstration of the versatility and flexibility of our tradesmen.

Now that the body was out of the way, Craig and Adam set about removing the motor and suspension components from the chassis so Dave can start prepping it for paint next week.

As you can see in the photo below, good use was made of our new mezzanine storage space to ensure parts don't get lost or damaged and the fab shop remains free of clutter.

I will share further photos with you as the preparation for painting continues next week...colour is not too far away.
