My '74 2.0 Restoration introduction... Dyno results!

Post by falcor » Thu Jan 31, 2013 3:40 pm

Got it home last monday...barely had time to look at it becuase of work....

http://www.rejsa.com/im/user/395/2013-0 ... g_5047.jpg

Spec's:

Front glasfibre hood
Rear glasfibre hood
Front GF bumper (cracked)
Rear GF bumper

Rollcage
Old five point harnesses, will probably be discarded.
Three point belts will be installed (needed to pass registration)

Rebound adjustable red Koni's front and rear
Springs "140 lb Weltmeister"

Engine overhauled 2001:
"Euro" pistons
Camshaft, unknown spec.
Overhauled heads with new valves and guides
Weltmeister oiltrap
Flywheel lightened 2 kg's
Frontmount oilcoover
External oilfilter
etc....

It's a pretty rough looking car but the plan is to get it registered (ex California car, I got it from Germany)
and then tear it to pieces and do it right, find all rust, fix it and have it resprayed.

Pics will follow tomorrow... :)

That doesn't look too rough. . . I think you and most others have a difference in opinion on what is the true definition of "rough" really is. Looks good!!

It doesn't look half bad from a few meters away but....

Some rust at the righ hand lower corner of the windscreen
Left front fender dented
Front cracked and taped up
Passenger door got a 3 foot scratch
Dash cracked
Rear trunk rusty (inside, middle rear part)
High beams doesn't work
Front fan doesn't work
Most rubbers perished and torn
Needs new carpets and seat covers

...the list goes on and on....but I've got a plan

:D

My car...err body is currently in the bodyshop getting some rust treatment but front edge where the seal for the trunk fits
is badly smashed up and my bodyguy is unsure if he can fix it. $1000 for a new replacement panel is something I want to avoid as long as possible, is there anyone who's got this panel and is willing to part with it for a bit less?

Problem above kinda sorted with a days work and a gas welder and a competent bodyshop guy. It's not pretty but at least straighter.
Rear suspension reinforcement kit from Tangerine welded in place, she will probably be done this week and then I'll take the body home again and assemble the front for some fine adjustments before I tackle the underside and wheel arches for cleanup and paint prep.

The car is back home from the body shop, straighter and with less rust and a rear reinforcement kit from Tangerine Racing welded in place. Still alot of work to be done, fixing the surface rust in the center tunnel currently and working my way outwards from there.
