Look great! Lovely patina.  Is that the original export sand color?

Hola Borja,

Bienvenido al foro y felicidades por el proyecto!

As already advised, I do strongly recommend you to buy a parts and workshop manual from the Club Shop:

https://www.lrsoc.com/web/product-category/manuals/

Also, please consider registering to LRSOC. For a very fair price you will receive the superb Legend magazine and have access to the forum archive.

Saludos,

Paco

Probably it is, as the BA-6869 plate was first registered on February 1955.

Best regards,

Paco
