Re: Ritmo Abarth Convertible Renovation

More pics on what it looked like when we stripped it.
The "handle" that runs the right back window when we took it apart.

The last pics also shows where the worst rustspot has been, we noticed it when we removed the left front wing. Some welding needs to be done.

Re: Ritmo Abarth Convertible Renovation

When i bought my other Abarth the seller gave me front konis.
I thought they would do well on my convertible.
On the second pic you can see how well the previous owners have done to convert the normal convertible into an Abarth

Re: Ritmo Abarth Convertible Renovation

Before the car goes into the box for a coat of color it needs to have a base, in order to see ant make sure all the lines of the car are 100%
It was meant to be done in black, but we decieded to do it in off white.
It was done @ 2 diff times
