Oh boy where to start? I plan to do as much of my list as I can before running out of money. Wife tells me the purse strings are going to be short this year for my car. Lol!

 

Finish A/C installation

Refinish wheel's get new tire's and mount on car

New lights all around

Get paint on hood fixed

Replace missing mud flap

Shampoo carpets

New floor mats

change mounting of electric fuel pump

Different air cleaners on DCOE 40's

Re-plumb carburetors

Brackets for dipstick, fuel line, and manual choke

Then drive the heck out of it!

get it running early in the new year. then do something about the sorry-ass interior. and maybe build up a new rear subframe assembly  to replace the good ole long neck assembly that's still in there.

My grand plan is to rebuild and put my 02 back on the road after hauling it around in pieces for the past 12 or so years.

 

The result will be a solid and reliable turbo build with 5 speed and a custom air suspension.

Limey, please say it isn't so....

After being on the back burner for waaay too long it's time to unleash the beast so to speak :) Twin cam twin side drafts & electronic disi , should be fun.

Well I think this is my first post here, so this send to be an appropriate thread! I am finally getting to work on my 1969 1600 that has been sitting (in various places) since 1998 or so. There is a lot to be done, but I am going to start simple.

- put together a good running engine. Probably a 72 2002 bottom end with an e21 head with Weber down draft and mild cam.

-find a transmission solution. I have the original 4 speed with bad synchros. Not sure what I am going to do here.

-get it running and driving.

If I get all that done in 2016, that will be a good start!

Build a barn to store them in, retrieve the one that I've abandoned at Bob's, and... profit!

I want to make Mid-America, maybe V@V if I can swing both (Mike Self, count me in for an Ohio-to-Ozarks caravan again, this time with the Orange Car). Hopefully attend some local shows/cruises with the family. 

 

Mechanics-wise, I'll probably swap the stock seats back in and sell the Scheels; I just want to go back to a mostly-stock interior. Might pull the trigger on a 123 Tune dizzy. A few other little things like door brakes and lighting, but I'll probably kick the rear-suspension-bushing-redo can down the road a bit further until that mint $100 3.90 LSD drops into my lap. Come to think of it, that would probably be rather painful. "Be careful what you wish for" indeed.

 

And, most importantly, just DRIVE the durned thing!

PS--In other automotive pursuits, I'd love to get my dad's '41 Chevy roadworthy again, since 2016 will mark the car's 75th birthday and the 60th anniversary of my dad's buying it--his first car--for $80. It's still in my mom's garage, one of two vehicles she hasn't been able to part with since he passed. It needs a complete brake system replacement and the exhaust hooked back up, but then (with fluid changes) it *should* at least be able to go out for a short drive... hopefully returning before a 45-year-old tire blows. That's assuming the engine hasn't seized since it last ran in 2008, of course.

2002 to-do:

1. Dump large pioneer stereo and aftermarket EQ installed from the prior owner and replace with period correct retrosound radio

2. Somehow source some BBS RS 4x100 wheels and sell my Rotas and Zenders

3. Disconnect and delete the "alarm system" the prior owner installed

4. Replace both door seals

5. Track down and fix that pesky rear turn signal issue

6. New chrome trim strip in both windshield gaskets

That's about it.... Little things really
