Be careful Ron! They will start following you home in pairs soon! (I know because it has happened to me)

BTW, nice headlights on that OB.

Lol...thanks....

Yea, the headlights were the main draw. I committed to purchasing before I saw a single pic. I almost crapped myself when I saw it was a Euro.

Got her home and unloaded, just as it got dark. Will be out of town the rest of the week, so I won't get to play until next weekend. Here is what I observed so far:

Interior shot (no surprise)
Font shift ball cup gone
Rear shift linkage shot
Radio gone
Antennae gone
Hole in roof where someone mounted roof antennae at one time
Sealant on bottom of gas tank
No battery
Accumulator does not look so hot
Hole in bottom of pumpkin
Patch next to hole on bottom of pumpkin
Brakes work
Tires shot
No key for rear hatch
One of the H4 headlights has bad reflective coating in it.

All in all, this car seems to be in about the same shape as #30, give and take....

PO said he had it running a few months ago. Motor looks good, needs some vacuum lines reattached. Gonna replace all the fuel lines and hoses.

I have a spare tank, and some seats that are bad, but not that ratty, got another steering wheel....

Car has a very nice chin spoiler, H4's, the most desirable 5-speed ( ) and a very straight body.

Ron,
78 and 79 really didn't matter that they were Euro. Same HP as US models. 80 Euro S is 300 HP. That's when the difference started.

Still looks like fun!

Yea, just something about saying "it's a Euro" gives me a warm fuzzy.

Been playing a little off and on...I got her to turn over and she ran for app 30 seconds, very poorly, but she ran....gas leaking out from everywhere.

Leak on cold start line on top of FD, leak from pump hose, leak from hose feeding accumulator, and the biggie.....leak from bottom of tank, where someone has epoxied...

I am in the process of replacing the fuel lines, the FD leak won't be a problem to fix, replacing fuel filter, old one had gooey fuel in it...started to remove the good gas tank from the 84 parts car, but it got too darn hot to continue...pretty sure this one will run well once the fuel system is sorted.

Hey Ron, I've been meaning to call. Looks like you found another one. I hope it's an easy fix.

Hey hey buddy!

Glad you are still alive! I have been on vacation, so had no phone service, if you called...., if not , give me a shout sometime....I just wanted to check on you, as it has been a while. I have not been able to touch this car since my last post, since it is outside currently, been too hot to work on her.

Well, finally got a few hours to kill, removed the tank from the parts car, and cleaned it. Not easy. This tank has been changed before, and whoever did it used the wrong bolts, and they were crossed into the nuts on the car. It took 3 hours to get all 4 bolts out, then the clamps that hold the hoses on the overfill hose, and the vapor line connections were rusted to bits, and I could not take them off the tank, so I had to cut the hoses, which made me sick, because they were in very good shape. I then had to dremel saw the clamps off once the tank was down.

Anyway, the tank is in great shape, and quite clean inside. The strainer looks new. I think the fuel sender is bad. The cap from the bottom was broken and lying in the bottom of the tank. I pulled the sender, and used a stiff wire to flip it up and then slid the sender back down onto it. I then had to flip the tank over so it would slide further onto the sender, and then reinserted the strainer.

Needless to say, I am a whooped puppy. Now I need to do it again on the 79, and then replace / repair all the butchered fuel lines, and then install the tank.....sheesh...

Played some more today.

Got the tank out, the gas smelled rotten, and was very oily, repaired the return line to the tank, which was all brittle and crumbly. Spliced in a new (used) fitting for the fuel sender (still need to solder on a new connector) , removed the crumbly fuel transfer line that goes through the frame, need to replace that....also, the vapor tank above the wheel has a broken fitting. I am going to epoxy in a stub pipe and then replace the hose (I have another tank on the parts car if this don't work...but I'm sure it will). The darn PO cut the end off the pipe from the tank to the accumulator (the hard pipe on the accumulator)...that ticks me, as I don't have another....I may braze an "olive" on the pipe and slide a hose over it, then clamp, or braze a barb fitting on it...that might be better....

I also found out the original color.....some sort of green....found it under a tear in the hatch trim....neat!

Oak Green Metallic!

Got the fuel tank from the fire car installed, got the new filter and original accumulator reinstalled. Replaced the fuel lines at the back. Have to connect the pump to accumulator line, and replace the (2) rubber lines under the hood. Put some b-12 in the tank, along with some marvel mystery oil. Will add fuel after I get the under hood lines replaced. Also need to remove the FD lines and do the mini strainers, as well as the inlet screen....very close to a start attempt

Tanks all in and bolted up. All rear fuel lines, except for main from pump to accumulator, are connected. Vent tube to tank in fender well has been patched. Next up, the rear hose connection (need to fab a connector), and the 2 rubber lines under the hood along the firewall. But...first....had to put her into the 928's most favorite position!

Up off all fours....

Ron,
Every Oak Green 928 I have ever seen in person had oxidized paint just like yours. When I owned the Jalapeno (80 Euro), it had at least 5 layers of Oak Green on every body panel. The last layer was infused with some type of hardener that took a whole afternoon with an air driven DA to remove from just the hood. Working to remove the paint on the hood hastened my decision to sell the car on to the next owner.

Hey John, what's up with the oak green? Wonder why it held up so poorly. It will be some time before she gets paint anyway...hopefully there have been improvements in paint technologies.

Got a problem...in disassembly, I damaged the hardline flare where the rubber hose meets at the bottom of the wheel well (the supply line). I can cut it, and reflare, but...I do not know what kind of flare or tool to get....any ideas? It sure isn't an open flare like I use in refrigeration...

In the meantime, I made some new fuel lines for under the hood....I tried using some 500 psi burst racing fuel line, braided stainless, and ethanol impervious (got it from summit). Worked great on the larger fittings, but I couldn't get it tight enough on the smaller fittings, so one steel line, and (1) rubber line.....we will see how that goes....that damn damaged flare is going to prevent me from starting this thing this weekend...grrrrr.
