  2. Hi mate - are you after a factory roundie wheel or more of a Nardi or Momo wheel? PS: love to see your car - always good to see a new one from Oz!
  3. Simeon, thanks for the offer, got a set of nice original wheels from another member here. now looking for a steering wheel as mine is fairly cracked, does anyone have anyting suitable for the 1972 roundie?
  4. Vin: 1554019 Year: 1972 Model: 1602 Location: SA Comments: Recent purchase, currently mid-way through trying to replace the clutch. Should be an easy job but it's clearly got other ideas. Keen to talk to anyone who may be able to help. It's the wife's car, and once we've got this bloody clutch sorted, it'll be her weekender

    Fuel tank repairs

    I've never had one repaired as tanks are still 'relatively' plentiful. I'd suggest only going down the repair path if you get desperate as you can usually pick up a good tank for under 100 bucks. When you have a good one, do a clean and reseal it (i think i used a POR15 product when I did mine 10+ years ago) and you shouldn't have to touch it again for a long time

    Great seeing another aussie 02 being put back on the road. There are quite a few in Adelaide... Jump on the Australian 2002 facebook group too if you haven't already!

    It’s a RHD car. I’ve got a mix of pieces for the bottom half but the two piece dash is likely what I’ll use. I think the 69 loom for the heater is different to what is needed for 71 heater. Perhaps only one speed. So I’ve got to work through that also. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I believe you can use a 2 piece dash in your car. Just have to get the correct heater controls and dash cluster. 3 piece dash has different heater lever control mounting. Oh wait - your car is European. Assume it has the chrome pieces on the bottom of the lower section?

    That’s great info. Thanks. Does the 2 piece dash from a 71 fit into a 69? I can therefore use the matching cluster? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Maybe I have that backwards.... Early cluster in later car = studs too short. Long day at work.

    The early cluster (silver dollar type like in a 69) has different length mounting studs on the back compared to the 71-73 black faced cluster. Make sure you test fit the one you want to use before committing. The 3-piece dash may not allow the black-faced gauge cluster to sit far enough back to secure the knurled nuts. My 73tii with black faced cluster and 2-piece dash Silver dollar type cluster from my May 69 2002 with 3 piece dash.

    Well spotted!! Vin 1650781 B pillar inserts done. 6 fuse is a pain but I can work around that. I’ve added a new loom and relay for lights but rest of wiring is stock. I’m not sure yet how compatible the cluster is but mostly my testing it seems ok. Also converting to dual circuit brakes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Nice to see another 69 getting restored! It's a lot of work but you will be happy in the end. What is the VIN? I see 6 fuse hole in the fenderwell, but a later Roundie gauge cluster. Before you go any further, are you going to upgrade the seat belts? I recommend adding a threaded fitting to the b pillar so you can use retractable type 3 point belts. Are you going to keep the wiring stock or adding some relays for the lights?
  18. Hi all. I thought it was about time I shared some pics of my 1969 2002 resto. Full bare metal and now being built up. Loads of challenges but going pretty well. Lots to do. Some details Rebuilt harnesses Rebuilt heater box new core seals and motor Rebuilt engine IE front and rear springs, sways and shocks All nuts and brackets etc stripped primed and painted New brakes New brake lines Donor car looking a little worse for wear now Gear box next in line Front and rear subframes stripped and rebuilt. Any observations and comments welcome Cheers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Looking for advice on tank repairs vs replace. I have two tanks. 69 and 71. Both are rusted at seams and holy holes. Both have had dodgy leak putty applied. Is it normal to get these repaired? The skins aren’t too bad but I think the edges would need to be totally redone. Any thoughts. ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
