    02 Baur wind deflector

    The slight breeze blowing in from the back and bringing in the outside noises such as birds chirping is what we love about our Baur With the hard top on keeping the sun off my balding head it just doesn't get any better than that!!!!

    Korman Open House

    That is my old Granada 1600 in your pictures Was purchased by a fellow in CA last summer and it has been sitting in Kormans since that time I had heard that they were building him a super 2002 so it must be that gold one You should have hung around today and done the Jugtown Jaunt with the 02 Group We were about 30 miles just south of Greensboro Always a good time I was surprised when Glen did not show up for it
  11. Our caravan is gathering at Kingsport TN on the evening of April 22. We will be taking back roads all the way from there, across the top of TN over the Cumberland Plateau, across the TN River Valley with a stop in Paris to visit the Eiffel tower. Then on across the top of Ark through the Ozarks and into Eureka Springs that Wed evening. After all the fun we will visit our friend David Yandow at the Lane Motor Museum in Nashville o the way home. As everyone has so very well stated above, its a great time for all. And you never know what you might learn from some of the very knowledgeable folks who come every year And you might even get to meet the original owner of your Fjord 2002!!!

    ICON Weekend 2019

    Steve It was great talking with you on several occasions this past weekend I really enjoyed our conversations and agree that a great time was had by all of us who were lucky enough to be there Thank you again for sharing your fabulous car with everyone both in the museum and on the track. It was so much fun watching those historic cars "dicing it up on track". We look forward to you guys coming down to Arkansas when your street car is finished for the Mid America 02 Fest :) Mike Pugh

    Bike rack advice

    I have an old Performance Bike Rack on my daily driver It is essentially a clone of a Thule gutter mount system
  15. Have done this many times It is not hard Some advice from and old phart : 1 Iron the headliner before installing Do not think you can pull out all the wrinkles you cannot. Putting headliner in too much tension will come back to haunt you 2 After a bad batch of heat sealed pleats I run a stitch down every seam before installing They don't make things the way they used to 3 Be patient. Don't rush Keep your hands and fingers clean with lacquer thinner Be patient 4 Use brush on glue I have good luck with Welwood and those 89 cent brushes from HD Spray glue is way to hard to control I have also used vinyl top glue too but that is hard to find in small cans 5 Be Patient and in a good mood Keep your hands and fingers clean Don't rush 6 Toby's advise is good 7 Use lots of binder clips to get it generally positioned all the way around, then start gluing on opposite sides, front and rear Do small sections and do not pull too tight as you will end up with wrinkles in the corners 8 Final advise BE PATIENT, keep your hands and fingers clean and don't rush No need to hurry If I can do it anyone can HTH
