Rolling Restoration

Update by Per Schroeder to the Saab 99 project car
May 11, 2007

The restoration of this Saab could clearly be called a rolling one. Last night, we drilled out the four rivets that attach the hinge for the quarter window to the B-pillar. The small amount of rust along the bottom edge of the window opening was ground out, a patch was welded in and we treated it with POR-15 before we went off to bed. This morning, the spot was primed and we reinstalled the window, allowing us to drive to work. While we could take the car off the road (err, figuratively) we’re instead choosing to repair little bits at a time for now, as we enjoy driving the car as it sits.

As an example of how “rolling” this restoration is, that’s the welding gas bottle that we’ve been using, we need to bring it in on our way to work to get it refilled so we can do more repairs this weekend.
