Mike Dumont – Rebel Machine – restoration

I just wanted to update you all with my Machine restoration project. It is slow going but moving ahead with the help of some good friends of mine.

Here are some photos, part 1 of 2 of the Machine on the rotisserie & then being loaded up on the trailer, destination Soda Blast Quebec in St-Eustache, Qc. Again with the help of my good friends knowing of my pending cervical operation next Tuesday, I was offered plenty of help with fitting the Rebel to the rotisserie for a sort of “dry run fitting”, then it was the fabrication of the rolling buggy then finally loading onto the trailer to its destination…complete soda blast in an enclosed booth.

This should start in the next 2 weeks or so. As for my current physical condition, I’ve been diagnosed with yet another severely damaged cervical disc which makes me as invalid as one can get, extremely painful & very limiting pain for most of my days, more so since they discovered the damaged disc by injecting water into the disc itself to determine its integrity….obviously it did not pass hence next week’s much anticipated with lots of anxiety, will only be the fourth time since 2004! We have missed so many shows due to my health issues, I’m hoping that things will finally get sorted out where we can get finish the Machine project & to get out there to see all of you….I sure miss the car shows & more importantly all of my AMC friends!!

Well , my fingers & toes are crossed & hopefully the results will be very positive this time round.

Kindest regards,

Mike Dumont & Marie-Josée Smith
