  1. Nice price on a tii that is basically done and can just be enjoyed as is. I actually prefer the color over Malaga, even though it's not "factory correct". Only thing I would immediately do is shoot the trunk so it matches the rest of the body. Very nice-GLWS!
  2. 2nd Palo Alto Speedometer. They've rebuilt/restored speedos, tachs and clocks for Pebble Beach entrants FYI.
  3. Tommy's observations were basically the same as mine. The airbox seemed "chubbier" and then I noticed that the distance between the mounting brackets on the box itself were closer together and that the area just fore of the rear bracket looked odd.
  4. Looks like you've been resuscitating the paint a bit?
  5. Hilarious. Really thought about half that tops. Greg's gotta be grinning ear to ear and then some!
  6. Registered last night, believe I was the 1st after you Larry. It'll be my car's debut after a complete exterior restoration, the replacement of the headliner, new mats and other interior bits replaced. Ironically we both have '74 tii's. Larry, yours wouldn't happen to be Gulf yellow w/silver MSW Ceres basketweaves, would it?
  7. Cristian, Bart Zieganhagen: https://therestoshop.com/ IG: @therestoshop Depending on where the car is in the South Bay, you could also have Motorspeed West in Santa Clara do a mechanical PPI. Hope that helps! Wends
  8. I'm pretty sure that I saw this parked outside of Solis Winery down in San Martin about a year-and-a-half ago shortly before I sold my '73. It seemed to be a very original car with what looked like original paint but unfortunately it had been hit in the rear as your picture illustrates as well as the nose and the left side lightly? What I liked though was the condition of the interior outside of the cracked dash (par for the course/no biggie IMHO) and split driver's seat. The panels were uncut and the overall condition of the seats and carpet were really quite good. I believe that the headliner was intact as well. Even though it's a roundie with Behr AC (which is the most desirable of the 3 aftermarket AC consoles), the amount of bodywork to make it right (not to mention the engine bay parts noted above) makes the asking price a bit steep. I wouldn't pay more than 12K for it tops. There are plenty of FAQ members who live in the South Bay that I imagine would be more than happy to look at the car. Bart actually lives in San Martin and all he does is work on and restore 02's so he would be a great resource for a PPI.
  9. Weird, I've had the best possible experience dealing w/Allstate regarding getting badly rear-ended last year. So far they've paid out close to 18K in repair costs. Hope Farmers treats you well, I wish you the best!
  10. Hans- The stain of the wood looks fairly close to the faux wood found on '74-'76 gauge clusters. Is it a bit lighter? I'm looking for a steering wheel that will tie in nicely w/my tan '74 tii interior. Wends
  11. I do. My 2 major gripes: 1.I don't believe I ever see a price posted in the title of the posting when there is a car or parts for sale. I will only see a price in the email notification that I get if I am following a particular post/section/thread. 2.When I try to use the search function as I would on the regular site (or any site for that matter) it does not populate with results that are logical for the most part. Consequently, I'll close the app and load the full site if I'm searching for parts for sale or tech threads so I can answer my own question instead of posting one that's been answered innumerable times.

  12. I'm shopping as well. Thinking of either one of these for my tii that's wrapping up a complete exterior restoration: https://www.covercraft.com/us/en/product/custom-ultratect-car-cover.C-CCUT https://www.covercraft.com/us/en/product/custom-weathershield-hp-car-cover.C-CCHP Neither are cheap, but you get what you pay for (hopefully[emoji120]). I imagine that your car is fairly nice as it's otherwise kept in a climate-controlled garage. W Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  13. Would be but I'm way out in CA! Trying to figure this out... Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  14. Jeff- It's tempting for sure as the lodging and food is surprisingly affordable for a five night stay. My major concern is getting my car there or if that's prohibitively expensive, what I might be able to borrow/rent and drive once there. Wends Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
