Quattro Squad Rally Build Shell onto the Trailer

Posted on 12 Dec 19:21

Almost a month since the last update. Boy does time fly when your'e having fun. In this case the fun was a visit to the BRAID factory in Barcelona including a few laps around the F1 track there in BRAID's Ligier LMP3 car.

Album here if you're interested.

We also went to Germany and visited the Porsche museum in Stuttgart. https://flic.kr/s/aHskQ2wchj

So you see, we have a couple of good excuses. We have been busy on the quattro though. In fact we managed to get it onto the trailer and drag it up to Thompson Racing Fabrication to get caged, restored and painted! It took a bit of engineering to get it off the lift but we managed alright. One more pair of hands and we could have just lifted it but this method worked quite well too.

 

 

Looks good on the trailer

It's going to be in good company up here.

New temporary home

So maybe it will be caged early January then Cherry Classic Cars can work their magic fixing the rust and prepping it for paint. There are many other fabrication tasks to take care of, some of which require body panels etc. but we are not ready for those yet so the shell may be up north for some time. Still, there's plenty to do back at the shop, like sorting out all the parts we took off and deciding what to keep and what to sell. Stay tuned.
