Nope lol..only hit it with dish soap. Steel wool seems to be my new go

to 'polishing' tool lately. I've got all 4 grades!

 

 I've been hoarding that bottle for over 25 years. Came off a 2002 that was destroyed when

I was rear ended (that I bought back from the insurance company for 200 bux).

 

It's finally found it's new home!

 

Note> I just realized I need the hose from the 'T' on the firewall to the water bottle. 

I guess the thieves just ripped that bottle out and took that hose with it!!!

Finally my new mats from Coco Mats. com showed up

 

Tan Sisel Mats. They're a much tighter weave than Coco..

 

I'm a big fan of Coco Mats but I think these are pretty classy

 

Light Beige apparently. The pic in their catalog looked alot darker. It's quite a contrast...

 

 There's no going back as these are fairly pricey + I got all 4. I've been known

to get only the fronts and use whatever in the back for filthy passengers

Time to polish more stuff

 

*Tore my bumpers apart and polished them.

 

*Blasted the front and rear mounts... and 'Por 15 them in gloss black ( for easy cleaning and I like gloss for a  daily driver). Then added new front bumper mount gaskets. Curiously the PO' decided they might look good in Malaga........

 

*Next polished the grills pretty good and added an expensive high end grill badge 

 

*'fabbed up a front license plate mount from some 'stock I had layin around. Por 15' that too

 

*Last  I added a chrome tail pipe tip from Blunt

Looking great!!!

 

I may need to get one of those chrome tips.  I've got a very unattractive stock pipe sticking out.  😞

 

Would you post a link or a part number?

Thanks..

 

I was wrong. It's not a Blunt part. I got that tip from Roger's tii. You can find it

in his online catalog pretty easy. He's having an internet security problem right now

so I'm not able to post the link

 

He's close to me and stuff gets here pretty quick. I get service items and such

from him too..filters etc. The orders can get here overnight or 2 days without

paying over night costs

 

It's supposedly chrome but it's really not that 'chromy lol.

I'd call it shiny stainless steel. It does look better than raw steel.

 

Some day I'll find a true OE chrome tip

 

OR in the meantime..

 

Maybe I should just google 'chrome exhaust tips' and see if I can find a real

nice chrome tip from Asia

Everywhere I check it's saying NLA...Maybe a later model tip will work?

 

Here's a pic of the one I got from Roger's..No set screw. Press on (or should I

say 'beat on with a large rubber mallet)

I put a set of chrome latches on my 74 cause they look the best.  

 

Rogers tii having internet security problems? Maybe he should have been a little more customer service friendly when they call and have a problem with an order.  🙂

I have that one.  It yellows quickly, but I'm told it can be polished to remove the staining.  Someday...

 

I see a missing detail on your rear bumper assembly :D.  You probably already know this. There are pliable rubber covers for the springs.  They have been NLA forever, but I'm sure it would be a good part to 3D print and paint matte black. Or bond some rubber sheet.  That would be even closer to original.  I don't have pictures of the part except on the car.

Nice work on your Malaga car.  Looks great.  Keep the pictures coming.
