stripping this old used firewall (needless to say - don't
know what 906 it came from yet), I discovered a little red
sticker. I scraped the paint off of it with my fingernail
and low and behold, it's a tech sticker from 1969 Nurburgring.
The sticker reads "ADAC 1000 km Rennen - Jnt. '69".
We will digitize and make this sticker.
we only had 80% of the original firewall, it is enough to
make the real deal...kind of like paleontology.
repair work is done and now I will make the window arch (flange
of aluminum is set in the opening to use as a base; then it
will be glassed to connect the arch to the base of the firewall.
the top lip, which doesn't exist, I will smear about 3/4"
of cabosil. This will give the glass something to sit on at
the cabosil is smeared, two layers of 1-1/2oz. mat is applied.
this part is a plug to make the mold. After a little bit of
body work, a coat of duratech and a sand job, she's ready
for wax and tooling gel coat for the mold. This part could
actually be finished on the other side and used as an original
part. When we find which 906 it belongs to (that we have restored
in the past), we will ask the owner if he wants it back -
sticker and all.
