Scott has been working on preparing the Daytona door frames by welding the bottom to correct the rust damage. He’s essentially grounding out the rotten parts before we send it off to chrome.

Here’s a closer look at the Daytona engine we have sat here waiting to be installed. This huge piece of machinery is what gives the Daytona its iconic power.

Tom has been stripping down the rear axel by cleaning and preparing it to be refurbished.

Scott has removed and repaired the sash on the door glass as it was rotten. It was then painted it and bonded it back onto the glass.
