Enjoying your build thread very much... You’ve done a spectacular job.
And I think the updated taillights on the C2 frame really give it new look!

Well this is different. The pictures loaded but not the text. Picked up the frame and took it to the powder coater. Should be back the middle of next week. Having a local company polish all the stainless and rechrome the vent windows, door handles and grille. Should be done in about 3 weeks. Wife insisted on having the hardtop perfect even though I don’t know when it will ever be on the car. Guess it will make nice garage wall art.

The kickup on the driver side had the same gap as the passenger side that slalomfiend welded. The driver side look great until the blaster removed the tar strip that was covering it. Stopped by a friend’s work and he put a quick bead on before I went to the powder coater.

The company that stripped your frame did an outstanding job. What method did they use?

The website says they primarily use sand but may use composites. I can call them tomorrow if you like. They have been in business for 47 years and do a lot of industrial stuff.

That looks great, Chris! Did they also blast the removable crossmember?

The frame looks fantastic, as for the hard top, you will put it on, it transforms the look of the car, and makes it feel a bit more solid, i love it in the late fall early winter before the snow arrives,you dont get much of that in Texas though.

Yes they did Mark. I’m sure it will go on at some point Gavin but I would have rather used those funds elsewhere.

I understand, but than the hardtop would have sat in the corner of the garage never to be looked at again. I kinda agree with the wife on this one.

Did they save the original vin number stamps on top of the frame? You need to photo them for your history.

They did save them Jim. I’m having the powder coater mask them off and then I will hit that with a clear coat because they are so shallow. I do have photos as well.

Take an awl and scratch each deeper and smoother at the bottom of each character. Do it carefully and the numbers will pop.
