Metro 6R4 Rebuild
UPDATES 15.02.2014 - Lots of work since the last update, many repairs done, one new floor done and original repaired parts are starting to go back on. Also managed to source an engine, an original development 3l V62V, pictures and some info on V62V Engine page, 30.10.2013 - After lots more dismantleing there was much more rot found which meant the whole front chassis needed replacing. Now it has been blasted and a new front chassis section fabricated and welded in place. Great to start building rather than taking apart. 27.04.2013 - Donor shell now apart, now starting to look like real replacement panels. 07.04.2013 - Donor shell slowly coming apart. 22.03.2013 - Start taking some basic measurements of the straightish side of the car and also start to look at how the front turrets can be removed from the bulkhead and then grafted on to the new bulkhead. 14.03.2013 - Purchased and picked up shell and also during the previous week purchased and picked up a brand new (still in primer) standard non sunroof metro shell.
This is a collection of images from the build of my very own 6r4. It can be seen that I have quite a project, the basic shell is original (works?) but is badly damaged. It will be completely re-built using a brand new std donor metro shell.
