DHC report nr. 57; Fresh air duct

Again busied myself with one of the many little jobs in preparation for when I start with the actual reassembly of the car. Tonight it was time for the fresh-air-duct. Although it was in fairly good shape (shot blasted and painted it in the mid 90’s) I thought it would look better with a bit of attention;

The fresh-air-duct itself was powder coated, the catches were first galvanised (gloss zinc) and after that black passivated. This not only should give a better protection against corrosion but I think it looks much better;

And after fitting it with some locally sourced seals I have another item ready to fit to the car;

I know I can get carried away sometimes with details like this 😎
