Hello from Southern California!

#1 Post by ts440hp » 4 years ago

Hi all, I have been meaning to post for a while now I had to go in search of some pictures. Im Tim, I live in Norco California. When we moved into our new house in 2010 there was this little car in the back yard that caught my attention. The lady said that she had no interest in keeping it and it was her ex husbands. We gave him 3 months to come and get it and after that I started to work on it. Ended up having to get it blue tagged because it was missing the original Vin plate. ill have to look for the metal finishing pictures but every panel was dented in when I got it. Sorry for the pictures being big still trying to figure out how to post them. Photobucket Pictures. http://s376.photobucket.com/user/samson ... t=3&page=1

Thanks you! Right now it ends in the engine compartment I haven't figured out what I'm going to do with it yet. I just painted the engine compartment all white. Still trying to figure out what to do with the roof. Right now that is painted all white I was thinking of getting a black carbon fiber wrap on it and have the white stripe go through it. I know I saw some sedans that had a black top with the stripe going across the top.

I'm not sure it may be, I bought the windshield from Gram and then I got the door, rear window, gas tank, gas door, and vent gasket from a gentleman off of eBay that remade them all. I know I got the top seal and lock strip from little car lover.

Thanks Tony! I love your van its beautiful! That would be fun! I need to figure out what went wrong on the sedan. I was driving to work on the freeway today and it just completely died sounded like it seized but it still turns over and spudders but doesn't fire. I'm going to look at it tonight when I get home.
Where about in San Diego are you?
