So as some of you might know , I am rebuilding the original S:t Moritz car .
I has been disassembled, the old rollcage is out !
(Wasn t really up to date anymore)
The new rollcage will be “oldschool” no fancy stuff to it , but welded and constructed by a professional .
After this , there is plenty of body work remaining.
5 coats of paint have been removed.
So weight saving at the same time.
Here are some pics.
I will try to do a full documentation of the rebuild here.
 












By the way , does anybody knows where i can get little metal “discs” to weld close all the trim holes etc ?

I think those small holes are usually just filled with weld, using copper to back up the holes as you weld.

Nice technique here for larger holes.

“The Inch Pincher of Sweden” , I never heard that one before Wink but somehow true !
Thanks Udo , you know I had this in mind for a very long time already , just never got the time and budget together at the same moment , but to me , this car really deserves it !
I also hope that with all the paint coats removed and the new rollcage , I can save some kilos and getting it into the 11 sec with the oldschool 1835 engine .

While waiting for the body to come back I took the chance on working on our new custom built S:t Moritz towing quad .
It is going to get a similar paint job , but done by myself with some oldschool gasser style effects .
A little „wilder“
So my son s gonna have fun again to bring me down the staging lane and the cylinder heads stay cold too .

The guys at Stahlus in Germany are on the Cage , oldschool but up to date , nice tight fit all the way around .
They build every cage just the way you are asking for



Getting it back next week when it is fully welded .

So , little by little the body comes along.
Welding all the holes closed previously filled with bondo.
Also the rear vent slots are back in where it had two plates of sheetmetal with rivets and more bondo

So , the car is almost ready to leave for the painter !


Welding has all been accomplished , just need to figure out a rear support for the fenders .
With the new CSP Wasp there is no room for a stock like rear apron anymore . On top i was thinking of getting rid of it anyhow to improve the airflow . I guess the apron was working as a speed brake anyhow
