Now out and driving on the road! Needed some good photos for insurance.
Nice looking car! Are those actually CSL Scheel seats you have in there?
Since your caption says almost ready, may I suggest that you 'blacken' the body under the fender grills.
You can use flat black car wrap foil which is installed/ stuck in a few minutes. Very easy job.
Seems to be missed by many after a new paint job/ restoration. On lighter colors it's even more evident.
Ps. W&N also sell them precut but any car wrap shop will sell you a sqft of black flat foil for way less.
The seats are brand new Cobra brand. I believe they came from England. Not sure how accurate of replica they are, but they're nice seats.
I liked it better without the black background. If the grilles were chrome, or if the paint were a lighter color, I probably would use the black.
very nice, congratulations! Just wondering what you plan to do for a hood support, or just use a prop rod?
Looks like that's going to be fun to drive!
The owner wants to do a CSL style prop rod, but I think those had an aluminum hood, didn't they? This one is HEAVY. Should have kept the springs in my opinion, but I suppose the last mechanic lost them along with everything else. Might just end up with a broom stick
INDEED CONGRATS ITS LOOKES REALLLY NICE
OH YEA USE THE HOOD STRUT LIKE I DID IT REALLLY WORKS WELLL
GET ON WITH ABOUT 15 LBS OF PRESSURE AND ABOUT 22" LONG
Very nice indeed, looks well done.
i was intrigued by the shock system that was on the 2002 that was shown on the episode of Jay Leno's garage (with the s14 in it)
Yeah, a shock system would be cool. I know Ray Korman installed a prop rod in Doug Dolan's e9 when he stuffed the S38 in there. Seems to work fine with a stock hood.
Yes, I have a prop rod on mine too with stock (steel) hood. No problems.
