I posted some final pictures of the year long project. I reported earlier that I started this project on Labor Day, when in fact, I really started tearing the car down on 7 Oct 2005.

There are still adjustments to finish and one major idle problem to solve.

Here is the link and unless I just get some additional photos that are keepers, I will close out the BLOG.

Thanks to the administrators for coming up with this BLOG idea and to the folks who first posted their projects that served as role models for me.

Thanks to Mike Pugh, Matthew Cervi, Bill Riblett, Jonathan Maxson, Ruth, Nathan, and Evan Williams for lending hands in times of need. Fred Cocca, being the friend and guy he is, gave me the rare light bar and driving lights. Also, to Blunt, Ian and Harv for posting pics of their projects inspiring me to take that extra step. Dave Bentz, Mike Self, Robert Cruise and John Weese helped alot with parts and diagrams. It was Maximillian Conover and Jim Eagen at Maximillian Importing that found the easy and obscure parts needed for the restoration. And to Humberto Marti for giving me an original 1972 touring sales brochure.

Again, the body work was done by Greg Rogers in Greensboro, NC at Romans 8:36 Paint and Body Center, Eric Kerman rebuilt the motor, Metric Mechanics tackled the rebuild of the 3:45 LSD.

Sounds like an Academy acceptance speech....just giving thanks were thanks are due.

You just have to be pleased with the result Bill.

I have a file of your pictures that will become a good reference for my future (next year?) restoration. I just hope I can get mine looking half as good.

Well done!

but I just hope I can get the idle problem solved. I am leaning to the idle circuit that is internal to the Kuglefisher.

I will pull it off this winter and have it verified.

I see a worthy candidate for the cover of the Roundel or Bimmer magazine!

Outstanding work Bill!

All the Best,

John

Kudos to you Bill for your perseverance. I also have to congratulate your family for been so involved with this project. I'm glad I was able to contribute a little bit to it's completion. It will be soooo much quiet on our next trip to Winstom-Salem!
