    What paint brand(s) do you guys like?

    All the above... I wanted to use Glazurit single stage on the 2000CS. My painter had never shot it before; so, he called BASF and spoke to them and he bought some to test shoot... loved it. He’s meticulous about prep...really he’s OCD about the entire process. It worked out well, I think. “some assembly required” - Barney Toler 😃 Ed

    So it's a '74? (clock shroud) sure looks crispy... gonna wrench it apart, or fix it? If you just got the welder, you will be an expert when you are done with this car...me thinks. Ed (dibs on the struts )

    looks better underneath than I would have guessed. A decent deal especially if the trailing arms, struts, brake booster, and engine are good. Oh...and clock. :) Ed
  9. For racers and wannabes... you won't find cheaper track time than this. $150 for three, 20 minute sessions? Too bad COTA doesn't participate. :( http://autoweek.com/article/other-motorsports/scca-track-night-america-flat-out-150 Here's the SCCA link to each event: https://www.tracknightinamerica.com/events 9 Things you need to know about Track Night... it's so easy... http://autoweek.com/article/other-motorsports/9-things-you-need-know-about-scca-track-night-america Ed ....not sure why the links are not attaching correctly. Copy and paste for now, folks...

    Screw You, TÜV

    Fortunately, those small areas of rust are straight forward repairs. I’d say, if that’s the only rust they found, you’ve got a pretty darned nice car... No worries, you’ll have it sorted out in no time.

    where have I seen this....? Ed
  12. Once you get the front tires in the air and can wiggle the steering wheel, if the ignition cylinder is still jammed; spray penetrating oil into the key slot and work the key in and out to free up the brass wafers inside the cylinder. Many times this will free the mechanism. Keep working at it. The Articles Section of FAQ is full of self-help projects. Here's one for the new owner from one of my favorite authors... Ed
