Side vie of the body. Not sure why the engine panel metal tap is missing in order to hold the panel onto the body.
Will have to use one of my old tabs to make sure that the engine panel does fit proper into the body opening
Door does look nice.
It has the second hole for the second wiper system in place which to my knowledge was standard for the West Coast.
Therefore the single wiper system came standard on the East Coast
Bubble frame being finished out with new everything. Yes I worked on three chassie at the same time. Two slider coupes and one bubble coupe. It does get tight in my back building at the lake but a good technician can manage to built three cars in the smallest place. Will have all three frames moved outside soon.
We worked hard getting all three frames done at the same time.
The body shells are still at the painter and should be back very soon.
This was a nice assembly line indeed and it does makes sense if more than one Isetta has to be restored at the same time
Jory's bubble window frame is at the front easy to spot by the horizontal shock system
Lining these frames up next to the building on the outside explains why it was tight inside the building working on these frames. That was the reason why we have to move into a larger facility in order to create a better workspace and much better environment.
Now I'm in a boat in order to take this picture. Not sure why I have done this but it looks good so far as longest the deck holds the weight.Oops the last pole already looks out of shape!
That would be something if these frames would have been rolling into the lake!!
First test drive to shake down any issues.
The steering wheel is Black but the steering column hand brake handle are chrome plated as well the pedal box.
The Blue seat came out of our parts cars so that I can drive the Isetta around the bloc.
Front view of the Bubble coupe.
No windows no wiper arms no inside mirror and other details which will be added later.
I like the idea that customers can still work on their cars to complete the last details in order to be a part of the process.
it does not need to be a turn key restoration all the time.
October 2002 the upholstery firm finally installed the sunroof and interior panels.The long distance car hauler has arrived loading this Isetta heading back home after a nice refreshing therapy by the Isettas R us company.
Another satisfied customer with many trouble free miles ahead.
Wish him the best with many smiles per miles
