    Thanks guys!
    I like these kind of threads myself. Especially since my car was missing so many parts.
    The plating kit came from this site but others sell similar kits.

    Greetings from Norway!

    This looks awesome! Great work!
    I am currently working on getting my frame back together myself after blasting, welding and galvanizing.
    Mine was pretty good from start with, except that the roof box was bad. Frame looked good, but the epoxy hid some stuff. Welded it myself.
    Would not recomend steel blasting and galvanizing because it got too hot, and it warped some places. Had to do alot of straightening aswell.
    Frame is straight, but it warped here and there. I would probably have done what you did if I knew what i know now.
    End result is good though.

    Here are som picture of my frame. Pictures are taken some days ago, Gas tank, plate under the frame, accumulator and gearshift linkage has been installed after they were taken.

    Great pictures! Looks like we are at the same place in the restoration.
    You should make your own thread and post some more pictures of your work.

    Time for a update.

    Installed brakelines

    and fueltank

    One of the first thing I purchased for this project was a volvo flywheel, they are not easy to find since auto seems to be the standard on b28.
    But I found one in Sweden.

    Engine and transmision joined together

    bolted in the frame

    installed the drive shafts

    test fitted the waterpipes
