Roof Ragtop - Clip install

Post  Major62 on Wed 21 Oct 2009, 12:44 am

Thought would post some as this moves forward - parts not at best when recieved but pleased with them now after a little rework.

Some pieces not in thier prime


Nice surface color


Front bar before rework


After - but before painting


Fins opened and cleaned


Mechanism pulled and fully cleaned


Front Bow - after many treatments just a few more to get all done.


Completed pieces - all rust removed and treated with 15


Front


Rear
