This past weekend I disassembled the 1963 Coupe so Jimmy Braxmeyer can finish the bodywork (last painted 1982, remove old rust bubbles & scratches) and repaint the lower-half L456 Ruby Red. Everything came apart fairly easily (4 hours). This body is in great original condition and should look very nice returned to new paint again. Jimmy needs three weeks for the work. Then comes the fun ... reassembly, which always takes 10X longer than the disassembly. We'll be using the new front & rear window seals, bumper bracket seals, and vent frame seals that were included with the T34 purchase.
