My new 240k Hardtop

Recommended Posts

Well the car is getting closer to having colour put on :D The zink bits and chrome bumpers are away getting redone and I'm sandblasting and painting the suspension parts so things are moving along fairly well.

The bootlid was a mess compared to the rest of the car for some reason.

240k style, It's going to look awesome in pink with a unicorn airbrushed on the bonnet LOL

I'm not sure what that hole is for, it looks factory but just has a blanking plate with a gasket that screws over it. I just assumed all c110's had them.

The tub of Zink bits are pieces are back from plating, I had the bumpers re-chromed too. Now all I need is a painted shell to put them on.

Some of these pieces were either slightly pitted or had small dents and scrapes on them so I sandblasted them and filled the blemishes with high build primer then sanded them true.

Yeah, I think the bay and boot will get done in the next few weeks.

If you sent your car over how much would you get them to do?

Started bolting/screwing pieces together.

And found this new windscreen. I went to a windscreen supply warehouse asking about them and they had one in stock, When they pulled it down from the rack it was FILTHY dirty and the plastic wrapping around it was falling apart.

Check the manufacture date, I guess they don't sell many of them!

There hasn't been a lot to update lately but I picked up a F54 block (flat top) and a N42 head the other day which are now at the engine shop for a rebuild/tweak. Hopefully by the time it's built I will have the shell back and partly assembled ready to drop in.

First bit of colour is on, most of the underbody is silver over schutz except for the spare wheel area which is just colour then clear.

Hey mate, fantastic work. Zinc parts look great. Is it expensive to get done? Do they charge by weight? Looking to get some done but have heard it's expensive.

Hi Cam, I can't find the receipt but I think the whole lot was around $400-500 to do (not including the bumpers).

The smaller items like nuts, bolts and washers are charged by either weight or by barrel full, I can't remember exactly which but it's quite cheap. The larger pieces like headlight buckets, pulleys and horn bits that won't fit in the barrel are more expensive because they are manually wired into position and they charge you by the area they take up while hanging in the tank.

While I'm posting, here's a pic of the engine bay.
