The engine is coming together...
keep the pictures coming bro
The body is in the paint shop, being prepared back to original spec in original colour Polaris (silver).
The running gear has been stripped and is also being repainted/restored (by myself). New bushes, brake lines, shocks.
looks impressive. Dlacey, do you mind sharing details of the painter and mechanic ?
The paint shop is Melvin Lee in Butterworth, the mechanic is yours truly. I am also doing all the refurb & assembly on suspension and electrical system...will take a while...
This is what original turbo rear arches look like without the fibreglass flares...a roughly spot-welded closing panel to allow for much wider rubber.
This is original 1974 Munich Welding by Bavarian Craftsmen....
And here's a modern Garrett in place of the original eberspacher/KKK lump...I have the originals, but it's completely shot through running unbalanced.
The first few para of this article refer to this actual car racing at Batu Tiga in 1975 with Eric Ooi & Pocholo Ramirez:
It's back on its wheels, suspension re-bushed, bearings and seals replaced, everything cleaned & painted. Engine and drivetrain ready to go in with exception of the differential...the LSD is still showing symptoms of that 1975 axle failure...it can be saved but needs some specialist parts..
