november 2020: meanwhile at the garage

While the shell is out, there is plenty of space to start organizing and refurbishing parts. Some parts went of to powdercoating, other stuff will be sandblasted and painted/coated by myself. But where to start? It isn’t easy when you have all the elements on the shelves, floor, hanging from the roof,… So I picked the most random part I could think of. The interior blower fan.

The stock unit
Disassembled and media blasted
2 coats of primer and 2 coats of black paint, new foam, new gaskets, cleaned or renewed hardware
All back together and ready to be mounted in 2021 or 2022 😀

After the start was made I wrote a list of elements that needed to be refurbished, what parts needed to be ordered, what parts I wanted to have a makeover. So now, everytime I go to the garage I just choose a task and get work done. As there is so much different things to chose from, I can match the work to my mood 😉

The parts which I dropped of to powder coating
More parts that I media blasted
Aluminium drum brakes blasted, cleaned and painted
Calipers: Disassembled, media blasted, cleaned, painted, new seals, new hardware, new pads
Fabricated some new rubber gaskets myself
And the parts are already back with fresh black powder coat
