Well I did a piss poor job of updating this thread along the way. However, I've been hard at work. I've taken some pics along the way, but they are also piss poor.

Two of the wheels were curbed and one was bent. I called all the "good" places I found when searching for wheel restoration and nobody called me back. So, I went to Mr. Wheel Indy. I've been using them for years and they repaired the curb rash and then machined the lips.

Instead of painting the faces of the wheels I just buffed the anodized finish and it came up pretty good.




I also cleaned and repainted the back of the wheels prior to having my new tires mounted.

Additionally, my old man and I went to town detailing this car. Honestly, I can't imagine how may hours were spent.

I had Bob Farmer do a full rebuild of the engine. When I initially bought the car I thought the three right cylinders were messed up. However, I must have been doing something wrong when I was performing the leak down test. Everything in the motor was good. Everything needed to be redone, but there were no broken parts, not valve marks on the pistons, and the cylinders were all in good shape.

I had all of the engine tins powdercoated. Also, had the exhaust system and heat exchangers ceramic coated.

Anyhow, this damn thing is alive again and back on the road. I plan on taking it to cars and coffee tomorrow and have been driving it here and there.

Thanks for all the help the other week with my questions about where stuff went when I put the engine back in.

The only items left are figuring out the tack, the gas gauge doesn't work, and I need to check out the AC. I'll get some better pics this weekend now that it's more or less done.

Buffing the anodized rim lips looks great...however, anodizing is not much more than a surface treatment to the aluminum, and you have buffed that away.

You will need to seal the aluminum quickly, or it will start to tarnish. A good wax works ok, but does not last long, you will need to re-wax them on a regular basis.

A clear coat of paint will give you years of protection, so you might want to consider it.

Just my .02 worth.

I went with a euro 930 fuel distributor, bigger fuel lines, and injectors. Also, installed an MSD and new fuel pumps. At some point I might want to add a 930 euro exhaust, but I don't know that it will make much difference. The engine dyno'd at 320hp and 349tq on Farmer's dyno. That was running the standard cdi box ignition. All in all, it seems pretty peppy.

Wow. You did an awesome job bringing the car back to life. Aesthetically and mechanically. Good job doing some basic mechanical refreshing (relatively - I mean you did have the motor rebuilt) not turning it into a multi-year saga.

Well done.

Enjoy driving it!
