Just for you, Doug. Not much access to see where I treated on the car.

Another rusty piece from a prior test. Equivalent amounts of Ospho on the left, and Corroseal on the right. I judged the Corroseal did a better job at soaking in and leaving a top film.

We wrapped up the loading prep today. First we tied the body to the dolly. In the rear I installed the engine cross brace support brackets, and used those.

In the front, I installed the suspension/steering cross member, and tied off to that.

We then moved the car over near the garage door. Ready to roll.

Today was moving day. Mike and Chuck (and Chuck's trailer) showed up around 9am. In about 30 minutes we had the car loaded and tied down. Car friends are awesome!

I was concerned about leaving the weight on the dolly wheels during transport, so we built a wood cradle to support the car under the longs. The cradle sat on jack stands, that in turn were screwed down to prevent shifting.

About an hour later the car was on the ground at the paint shop.

The body is now in the hands of Lin Coates and crew, in Bayfield, Colorado.

That car was definitely nicely secured on the trailer. I'm thinking you could have driven it across the country with no issues at all. Good job. I can't wait to see it being body worked and then color! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

I might have been a little paranoid, but I worked out. I also wanted to set it up so when it comes home with fresh paint, nothing has to touch that paint.

I spent most of yesterday and today cleaning and reorganizing the garage (and fabricating a new post for our deck shade structure). With things moved around, I could get to the 914 motor. Don't be jealous of the awesome red paint on the head covers and pushrod tubes.

We ended the day by getting the motor up on the stand. More jealousy: red on the blower housing and intakes (and also on the exhaust and trans).

I stopped by the body shop to drop off the brackets to mount the car on their rotisserie. Here are a few other cars in progress there.

Before starting on tear down, I made some space to lay things out. I repurposed the plywood from the trailer cradle into a work table.

After some inspection, and labeling, and photos, I stripped off everything from the topside.
