Back From the Body Shop

As you may recall from my earlier post, the car was going to be in the shop “for a few weeks”. Now it’s back; 5 ½ months later and three times more than I budgeted!

But it is beautiful:

Hienkel Kabine, Heinkel Car
I'd be surprised if it weighs 200 lbs; two people can pick it up easily

Heinkel Cabin Scooter

Heinkel car
Hole is for gas tank neck; straps secure the tank

Heinkel Car Body

Heinkel Car
Arm supports steering wheel and dashboard

Heinkel Cars and Cabin Scooters
The "glove compartment" is above the wheel well

  1. Being around paint fumes everyday must distort ones perception of time. My body shop told me two months. In reality it took them almost a year. The waiting was painful, but the most important thing to me was that they do a good job (which they did). They also re-sprayed a few items I messed up during reassembly for no charge.
