Many thanks. Today was a good day, for sure.
Ed this will be the nicest example of its kind when you are through, most excellent!
keep pushing Ed, this is an amazing coupe ... and easily one of the best 2000 cs on the planet. love the attention to detail.
Grills in. Lights wired and sorted. Roundel mounted (sure wish I could locate a base
Ed, in the interim, could you just cut a piece of 60mil EPDM just slightly larger than the outline of the emblem? This is what a "rubber roof" is made of, and should be available at most big box stores. Very easy to cut with scissors or a sharp knife (exacto, olfa). Just thinking outside the box.
Thanks... I didn’t attach the Roundel permanently (only some pieces of vacuum hose on the pins beneath the Roundel. I’ll look into something like you suggest for now..
This is an awesome restoration thread, your car looks amazing, I was wondering who painted your car, I have 1973 3.0 cs that it is going to need a paint job in the near future, I'm located in Houston and I wound't mind the driving.
Thanks for the kind words, Victor. Local friend, here in Austin painted the car. He’s an old paint and body guy who now runs a specialty shop building electric muscle cars and other projects. He enjoys the paint work, so he does a few cars a year. He did an amazing job on this car...
Send me a PM and I can fill in more details.
Was a great weekend with lots of help again. Windows in and working! Original rear motors, working pretty good after lots of degreasing and regreasing. I have a quick video but can’t load it here
Very happy days..
Driveshaft finally cut correctly, installed it and the entire exhaust system is in, including the chrome tip from Connor at Vintage Autobahn.
Just looked through the whole thread here. Want to make sure you safety wire the bottom of the ball joints.
Andrew the ball joints have jamb nuts on them with no tie wire holes. They’re tight, though.
Tail lights are in and test fit the C-Pillar emblem. (Disregard the ‘71 Texas plate...)
I hope you are sourcing a '67 plate?
I can get ‘67 Texas plates pretty easily.
I may try to get a personalized plate suggested by Stan.... 4 PAPA.
love the red / red taillights of the 2000cs / early 2800cs ... but the red / red on the red car is beautiful. keep this wonderful build going Ed ... its a great coupe
