Kremer 935 K3 - Crawford
May 7, 2007
never seen a stranger color for the inside of any race car
I have ever worked on. I guess Charlie Tuna had some taste,
ehh! As you can see, if you can see it, the serial number
of this car is 011. Recently, I got a phone call from some
fellow in Europe who stated that a Jagermeister 935, with
a serial number 011, was for sale. All I know is I am restoring
the first, the original, the only 011 that is correct. This
car has a perfect paper lineage from owner to owner...no excuses,
no stories. I guess that ends the question of which one is
real. Oh yea, this car has never been re-tubbed either...crashed
a few times, but repaired, not replaced.
I might as well
tell you now...it ain't going back blue.
These are just
a bunch of detailed shots before the tub is steam cleaned.
It's steam cleaned

difficult to see the layers of paint.

some cases, replaced.

has now been performed and you can see the original satin
black that Kremer sprayed on the tubs when the cars were built.
The original car
came in a slate gray primer. Under the dash, there wasn't
much sanding going on before the black was painted because
the steam cleaner blew all the blue paint and black paint
right to the primer.

number matches the serial number.
removed and you can see the slate gray primer on the top of
the dash. It's hard to make heads or tails out of the mess
you see on the right.
and you can see Jagermeister orange. This car was Jagermeister
sponsored in its early days in Europe. When the paint was
removed for the car to be painted white, luckily, they left
traces of orange all over the place.
