I thought members might like to see some pictures of my restoration. We ended up making one good car out of my two, as one had a decent body, and the other good mechanicals. Will be on the road in a couple of weeks. I can't wait.

Hello Andrew,

I see you removed the back window. I am curious what you are using to re-install it as the plastic chrome strip in my Coupe would disintegrate if I removed mine.  What are you using instead of the chrome strip?

Otherwise the restoration looks great, make sure you put the completed project under this same topic

Hi Lindsay

We are having new molds made up for front and back windscreens by the local Novus Windscreens franchise. There is othing else available that we could find. You're right- the old ones shatter when you pull them out.

Will be sure to update with pictures of finished car.

Regards

Hi Andrew,

She's lookin' good!

You seem to be getting on with it ok and methinks you will have some buyers for repro windscreen seals if you do a run of them.

In the meantime....

SNAP!


Great minds think alike!

Cheers,

Ian

Hi Ian

Love the colour!! I think Lindsay has suggested that a lot of people would like the front and back window molds!

Will be good to see progress of your car too.

I kinda get goose bumps looking at the resto photo's .

I know it is what I should do with mine . While it looks OK in the phtot's it has a lot of flaws .
Mainly cosmetic .. other than a front bumber , a repair or replace..

I had always intended to classic race it so the condition was fine for that . I have been unable to renew my Competion Licence so had discounted that ..
BUT
I have been approached by more than one skilled driver and some major sponsorship to fund it .
It seems more people know about these cars in NZ than I had thought a lot of stems from the 1971 Bathurst .


Looking at your efforts ans the end result is actually having me sway more towards restoration.


I have done a couple of dozen resto jobs , even a couple of concourse cars ..  Bit held back by health issues but should be managable ..
Thanks for the inspiration

That is great Tony- I have always wanted an immaculate road car, so I am getting very excited now.

All the best
