    Lastly a little bit of a surprise. I mentioned earlier I would have something to ad regarding the radiator support. Well, here it is, primed then painted in the final color of the car. Looks pretty good. I put up two pics of it painted, the first one is of it without the flash of the camera and probably a better representation of the final color and then the second pic is of it with the flash of the camera. Just for comparison.

    I’m in the middle of the ac box rebuild as well. Not sure if you are going to crack open that box since it looks clean, but I just picked up the DMT rebuild kit and it looks pretty complete.

    Normally I would pull it apart but as you say, it looks clean, and it does. I am going to clean it up a little and make sure everything works then simply put it aside for when I'm ready to fit it.
    I am curious to see pics of the DMT kit though, are there pics on a website of the kit in question?

    Got some disk brake work done, last of the new parts arrived today so this will be finished very soon. Suspension parts are all painted.

    I saw this car Sunday while down at Gary’s shop. Third time I’ve seen it. This car was rough & Gary has done remarkable work. Not too many people have the skills let alone the desire to do this level of quality work to a C body car.

    Rotors are cleaned up and ready to fit, will put new seals in the rear and repack the bearings with grease before assembling. They are very nice original units.

    Ah, 2 good looking cars sitting side by side, can't wait to see them in the flesh. Gary, looking forward to hitting your part of the world next month mate (been a long time coming, first visit back to the good ol' US since 2009). Have missed my dose of the US :)

    Aidan helped me play musical chairs, I mean cars and the S23 is now in the main workshop. Winter will be slow so I will tinker on smaller stuff on it for now.
