Build – Stage 3
Centre heart and side grilles installed
Dashboard repaired and re 'crackle blacked'. The wobbly glove box hinge mechanism was redesigned to work nicely during this work. We found the original silver colour underneath the black paint on the screen inner finishing trims; this matched the photographic evidence from period colour photos. Having found this, we stripped these trims and painted them their original silver body colour. The original seats were twisted and the original very flimsy Zagato runners welded to the frames were in very poor condition. To repair them and make the runners suitable for safe driving would have resulted in the majority of their originality being removed. To avoid this, we have kept them in their exact & very original condition to be returned with the car and have made a pair of new SZ seat frames to trim and use with modern FIA safety runners.
