Endless categorizing

With the car now fully stripped the process of categorizing sub-assemblies is in full swing. Each assembly is placed it its own box until it is ready for categorizing. At that time the component is disassembled and a detailed work list is compiled. Each individual part is inspected and notes are taken with the following criteria:

1. Whether the part needs replacing or not
2. What repairs are needed
3. What is the correct finish (plating colour, paint colour / sheen. etc.)
4. General assembly notes

As you can imagine carry this process out on every nut and bolt and the hours pile up fast. That said it is the only way to ensure total accuracy when restoring the car. Notes like this are invaluable months down the road when re-assembly needs to be done.
