Spring is here and I am busy trying to finish the restoration of my 1962 Daimler Dart SP250. I can’t wait to drive it for the first time. I bought the car in May 2009 and have stripped it down completely, repairing, cleaning, sanding and painting every part. The chassis and engine are completely restored and we fired up the engine (first time in over 29 years) in February. The body is getting it’s final coat of red paint this week. Next week I will begin putting the parts back on the car and the following week the interior leather and carpets will be installed.
I made a 10 minute video of the restoration process, up to this point, and it is available online at youtube if you are interested in car restorations, click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRhxuFhp8AU
