been hit in the back left and it's kinked the boot. at the panel beaters right now getting straightened out.

interior is good. no rips or tares, console unmolested. carpets are fucked.

boot and tank area look ok

roof lining is good

bay is OK

IMGP2724.jpg

doors are not too good, evidence of rust current and bog. not sure how far to go with the body. might pull it down myself and send into a shop in the city recommended to me by a friend that resto's cars.

happy with it for the money! it starts and runs on four, has all the original wheel centres and fuel filler, even has factory AC.

Thanks - on the car in my sig pic they are Alpinas in 15x6 front and 15x7 rear with a et12 offset so its relatively wide setup (far from the widest though) with a low offset - you'll need to roll your lips and maybe a light pull, while using a low profile tyre like a 195/45 or 195/50.

Im now running some BBS RS's 15x8 rear and 15x7 front - but i won't spam your thread with pics! Check out "The Stance Thread" as there are a few images floating around there, with lots of suspension and wheel options - its a good read!

Welcome Wagoner! Great to see another Aussie on the forum, especially driving a Chamonix! (Clearly my '73 Chamonix makes me biased).

Any plans for big mods or straight back to stock for the time being?

big plans...

after the old accident damage is straightened out i'll bring it home, strip it down and get the rust removed/resprayed.

beyond that i've got an E21 5 speed lined up for it, possibly some twin side draft strombergs...

Been a long road of rust removal, paint and collecting parts. 

All coming together well now. 

 

Getrag 245 is waiting in the wings along with a fresh M10 inc forged 10.5:1, Schrick 292, new valves, porting, blanced rotating assembly, twin webers etc etc.

Getting close to starting it now. 

Fresh motor with

 - 10.5:1 compression, rods & pistons grammed, checked for roundness, crank scraper fitted. 

 - E12 head with short turns ported, 5 angle valve job, schrick 292, new valves and springs, IE rocker stoppers

 - new 45mm webers with port matched inlet

 - custom RHD headers 4-2-1

 - 123ignition bluetooth dizzy

 

Got a G240 behind it with Speedhut GPS speedo to get around the lack of cable. 

 

I've got an internally regulated 65A alternator so I pulled the loom down to ditch the reg wiring and random old plugs. Also fitted a fuse/relay box for low beam, high beam, horn, thermofan and d/light relays.

It's down at a workshop now getting the tailshaft and exhaust made. Then it'll be on the rollers for run-in and tune. Then home via a paint shop for some work where the rotisserie mounted and a modding the exhaust pipe cutout. 

 

Found a pair of recaro's on the weekend. Dash has been re-trimmed and is ready to refit.
