Type 65 Coupe Update – Welcoming Another So Calif Coupe, More Steel Parts Painting   Leave a comment

I did not do much work in the garage this past weekend, since I had to pull an all-nighter to get my CQ magazine article finished before a deadline, and there was a Coupe welcome party at a fellow Factory Five builder’s house.

Here are some pictures of a brand new Type 65 Coupe kit that recently arrived at QSL and Mrs QSL’s house. (They just finished a Factory Five Racing Roadster. It looks great and is finally registered and running.)

It was good to meet some of the other builders in the area and see the special parts QSL bought for MRS QSL’s Coupe.

I took a nap shortly after I got home, lack of sleep from the all-night writing session before wore me out. I woke up, and it was dark outside, so I just went back to sleep, and woke up at 3AM on Sunday.

After doing some chores around the house, I decided to prep and paint the other steel parts on the Coupe. Here are some before and after pictures of the steel items painted with gloss black Rust-Oleum Appliance Epoxy. It is a great finish, and looks almost like black powder coat.

For some reason I didn’t take a picture of the hatch hinge parts or the door frame after painting. Oh well.

Hopefully will be able to get some more work done on the chassis and the rear suspension in particular next time.

Stay tuned for more. . . .
