Dino 206 Surfacing: The Most Critical Stage

July 31, 2012

Surfacing is one of the  most grueling stages of restoring a car. It is such physical labor and truly takes a toll on you.  For the experienced craftsman it is the key to a fine finish. Although this is the toughest stage, it is also the most critical stage. This is the point at which we fit doors, lights, accent lines, deck lid, engine cover. This is where fit and finish starts so that when we finally reassemble the car everything fits together beautifully.

Anyone who knows me knows I am a nut when it comes to shut gaps. I know that “it’s not the way they came from the factory” but the Italian Craftsmen were working on a line and didn’t have the time to focus on this detail.
