Jaguar Project - Bodywork

Visited today to drop off some money.
Quite a bit more done, but a lot left to do.

Coat of protective primer to keep from rusting while the rest of the body work is being done.

Front view.

Took a picture of the upholstery. This is the seat, inside out, but opened up.

I took Gizmo along, and got him a new toy, which he destroyed in no time at all. Does he look guilty?

Jaguar Project - Bodywork

Stripping of old paint down to bare metal has been started.

Hood stripped and primed.

Today I received the seat cover kit. Now all I have to do put them on the seats. I'll take my time, and do the best job possible. They look great, but they are inside out, so I did not take any pictures yet.

Jaguar Project - Cockpit

AKA Iceberg Silver Metallic

Per quart. It is going to take at least a gallon. Need to look at local paint supplier to see if it can be mixed a little cheaper.

Visit to the Jaguar today. Rear fenders removed and cleanup started.

Received my 4-point seat belts today. When I get the seat covers, I will be able to install the shoulder straps in the seat back.

Jaguar Project - Cockpit

Cockpit last week... ...and this week.

Rear fenders off for refinishing.

A lot of other stuff going on:
- Waiting for seat covers to be finshed.
- Scraping and painting the seat mounting hardware.
- Four point seat belts on back order.
- Building a wire loom for the HD AM-FM radio/CD/MP3 player.
