Seats reupholstered by Niminck in correct Connolly leather; the interior is otherwise all original.

The radiator was cleaned and needs to be painted flat black before being installed.

The car has been taken down to bare metal and shot in primer to preserve the metal. It is ready for paint and assembly.

The bumpers have been nickel plated, but need to be chromed.

The engine and transaxle was sent to Patrick Ottis for compression and leak down checks, inspection, detail and reseal. It is ready to go back into the car.
