Some new fotos of dismantling the canin. Had to realize that my hydraulic hood is not any more hydraulic, since someone cut out the hoses and the electeohydraulic pump is not working anymore. And there is an incredible mess with all the cables which were added etc.

Herculean task you have there, but the end results will be worth it all.

The new colour is going to be Aquamarin Blue Metallic.
The convertible roof will no longer work hydraulic since the pre-owner cut all hydraulic hoses and the compressor isn't working anymore
The interior will be beige with new upholstered seats (front an rear) in beige leather/ alcantara combination
The woooden console trimmings will be replaced by brushed stainless steel. :D
Cheers! Matt

Looks good work so far!
There are people who know about the powered hood so it could be possible to make it work again correctly.

I'm glad you kept the little bonnet scoop. Is it painted the same colour as the Dino Spyder?

No, the colour isn't the same like the one on the Fiat Dino Spider. The Spider wears an original Fiat Dino colour from 1967 called Mexico blue Metallic.

I painted my Jensen with a colour anyhow near to a Porsche 356 colour called Aquamarin blue Metallic.
