We have taken some of the important parts off, such as the fuel tank / fuel pump, seats, and roll bar, but still need to remove the engine. We hope to accomplish that this week, as well as strip all of the blue paint from the car. The car will be nothing but the body, and there will be no paint, and then repairs will commence.
Well, here goes post number one!
I will be working with Dan in his autobody shop. He fixes classic cars in his shop which he runs on his won property. His garage can hold two cars at once, and for my senior project, I will be bringing in my 1974 Fiat Spider. I will do most of my learning on this car, and in the end, I will have a car with a nice, fixed up body! Here is what the car looks like:
Unfortunately, that is not my car. Pictures of mine will be forthcoming, but suffice it to say, it does not run, and has a few rust patches. It will be a tough project!
