FHC resto nr. 26; Swage line rectification

Paint preparations have been on hold the past few weeks due to illness. But by the end of last week the work has restarted. First on the to-do-list was rectifying the swage line on the right hand rear wing. As a result of the numerous small and not so small dents in this area the line had suffered a bit. Which is clearly visible in the picture posted on November the 9th. After adding some filler and sanding it down it now looks like this ...


Also did some adhesion tests to see how the primer attaches to the epoxy primer. I mentioned earlier that we had some doubts here, but I am glad to report all is fine. These test were done on the engine bay, which is also finished by now ...




And it is clear that the car won't see the inside of the spray booth in 2014. Hopefully somewhere in the second half of January.
