Car ran fine for a little while, made it to the SOCAL Vintage show with no problem but on the way back the engine suffered from a blown head gasket!

Since I had to pulled the head, decided to paint the engine bay which was never touched by me and was a mixture of Granada and flat black!

Damage to the head gasket!

Little video clip of how it sounded!

Running Dual solex's that might be replaced with some webers as the solex's were badly tuned( and don't feel/know how to tune them)

Looking good Daniel. At least the head blew on the way back instead of on the way down to the show.

You can't tease like that... Side shots are required!! I love the old 3-pc Ronal Racing wheels (both the turbo style and the mesh).

Hi Daniel,

 

I love your car and Borrani wheels. I have a question for you. How much did you pull your rear fenders to fit the 6,5 Borranis?

 

Cheers,

 

Micke

You will likely have to remove the outer body skin from the inner frame part. You will see the seam from the inside of the trunk. You basically have to pull the skin from the inner part of the car. 

 

If you remove the trunk boards and look at where the body panels connect, you'll see what I mean.

Is that really a Vilen B Haan door handle?  Where did you find that?  This seems like a perfect part to reproduce.
