IMHO that hood doesn't seem bad. Requires work for sure but decent shape for the vintage.

Super excited to see how thing go along with your restoration/build. :)

Well I know it's been a while since this was last updated...
I've been out of the country but work has continued.

We are now at the point where we are waiting on Bullet Autoglass to come and pull the glass. He had a family emergency which took precedent.
Hoping have glass pulled by next Tuesday, then paint by end of week or sooner.

For now, NEW pics have been added to the photo album

Enjoy!

Small update... sorry no pics yet.
All glass came out perfect.
Tiny surface rust area around lower drivers side corner rear hatch - common area. Other than that all good.

Major issue
As the windshield was getting pulled, the seal at the top drivers side corner fractured.
I need a windshield seal now.

Time to go one the hunt - I'm open to suggestions...

Is it a molded rope in seal? I thought the mk2ís had the seal that glass shops carry on a spool

Probably a good idea to replace said seal anyway. 30 year old rubber is not a good idea to reinstall.

Small update,
Bullet Auto was able to get the windshield with the moulding etc so we have everything we need.

FYI there were only 2 Corrado windshields in all of the USA and Canada in the glass ordering system. I know there are some that are on Vortex etc, but if you actually wanted to order glass from Speedy, Broco etc, the system they use for ordering only had 2.
Now there is 1! LOL

There was only a very small area of surface rust in the rear hatch where the glass contacted the lower drivers corner. That's all fixed now.

VR6 Hood has been properly restored as has my original G60.

Contact areas for the glass are getting prepped and car is possibly getting primered this week!

I also kept the rust panel as a souvenir...LOL!

Stopped by the shop today. I had to Re&RE the drivers side mirror motor and figured I'd do it while it was off the car. Ordered some new wing mirror glass also as mine had gotten to he point where it was useless.

Car is starting lo look good.
Both hoods and bumpers are primed and drying. then onto sanding, re premiering, then paint and so on.
Flat sanding the body now, most likely paint next week.
Pic album will be updated soon.

Here's a couple of pics from my cell from today to hold you over...

Paint matching...
Decided on going ever so slightly darker with a metallic flake in it.
Looks very classic

Hoods getting painted tomorrow morning!
Can't wait to see some colour on this thing!

Potentially getting her back next week!
