This week pulled the front bumper off. Also installed a new starter, so it was time for a little drive. You'll see the starter isn't a rebuild of the Bosch original, based on some recommended options from the 02 crew I went with an aftermarket new starter, aftermarket of the Bosch SR441X. As recommended, it is smaller, lighter, rolls the engine over quicker and quieter. Don't mind the old wiring :)

Thanks Nate, I'll look into that bracket.

 

This week we installed an Ireland Engineering stainless shorty header. Next up putting the exhaust back together.

We taped off the car, mixed up the Glazurit, and good guy Barney shot the underside. “Carpet matches the drapes”as they say...

Now I can get busy bolting this project back together. 

 

Before we shot it, I spent my last chance to inspect the underside and applied POR15 paste to any crevice or welded seam.

As of last Saturday, Papa’s Church Car is rolling on its own wheels again. Subframes, brakes, and engine in place.

As always... couldn’t have done it without the big man, Barney Toler. 😎

Great updates Ed!

 

On the topic of wheels, I'm trying to decide on what wheels for our 69 NK. When we picked it up, it sat on E30 bottlecaps, which I don't want to keep. I've searched and search on what others have ran for wheels.

 

Does anyone happen to have a set of 14x5 steel rims for an NK sedan they'd be willing to part with?

 

Thanks, Patrick

Not my car ... was great meeting some fellow NK owners at Legends of the Autobahn, Monterey, CA on Friday. Loved seeing Eric's 2000CS!

 

Looking forward to the SoCal meet in November,

Patrick

A simple fix this weekend, new speedometer cable from Ireland Engineering. Decided to use their cable, they are sourcing them directly from Germany to keep the quality high. Nice cable and good to see the miles ticking now.

fitted a new helm - going to have to strip and stain darker to match the dash, but it's a lovely steer with less flex than my original and even the horn button and contact works

Installed IE 02 coilovers with Alfa gtv6 brembo calipers that were previously in my old wrecked 02. NK steelies won’t clear brakes calipers. Had to order 12mm spacers. No i wait to see if went too low!

Daniel, how low are you expecting it to turn out? On the steelies, are you going to run that set stepped up to 15 in?
