  1. You're staring at $15-25K worth of work (depends on the body rust). Budget accordingly.
  2. Man, that's awesome. Good job. Archiving the thread for future use. As for the headliner, go buy yourself a $4 tub of GOOP hand cleaner at HD or Autozone. Put some on your headliner, let it sit a few minutes and then wipe off with a damp rag. Works wonders! Nick
  3. At some point in time people should consider the cost benefit analysis of parting out a car for the price some sellers are asking or willing to accept. Personally, I'd NEVER part out a car because it would take more time than I care to invest in such an endeavor. Some of these are just that. Parts cars. Choose your battles.
  4. And here I'm struggling with what type of rope to attach to my wine corks so I don't lose them while they're not in use....🤠
  5. It's a 4 Cam Fuhrmann. Wait until someone puts in back into a Speedster and see what that car goes for!
  6. Nah, I opened a bottle of wine last night just to get the cork! One more bottle to go! Thanks guys!
  7. Yeah, I admittedly started the thread before searching....cardinal sin. Mea culpa, mea culpa... I found one tennis ball. Just to be different, I may run one tennis ball and one wine cork. That'll get 'em thinking! Thanks!
  8. One of my favorite parts of these cars (Ok, I was spoiled by Porsches first) is the rear vent windows. Just like my old 912, these stinking things won't stay open. I've found myself even thinking about propping both of them open with an adjustable shower curtain rod or some such ridiculousness, across the back seat. I've tried tightening them well with the hinge knob several times only to hear them slam shut, at speed. This is uncomfortable at best as reaching back to try to prop them open again is, well, contortion. What's the trick fix?
  9. Cardboard box template. Cut, tape, repeat until perfect.
  10. I have a similar rattle, but only in gear and not in neutral. Like the OP, mine 'goes away' as I go faster, but I also think the engine noise is just drowning it out. My clutch, TOB, shifter rebuilt...all replaceable parts are new. All oils are new. Argh. Car drives like a dream though. If this is my only complaint, I guess I can live with it. It's not really noticeable, except by me.
  11. I did this with my rear window hinges. Using my (clean!) fingers, I was pretty sure I could feel the screw holes and the distance apart from each other. To verify, I went to the other side to see if I could find those holes in the same location and the same distance apart. Lightly marking with pencil, I then took a small needle and took the plunge, so to speak, hoping a needle hole wouldn't leave too much of a mark if I was wrong. But I wasn't. Good luck!
  12. I love this idea! Good for you. Your family will remember this trip forever. Take lots of pix and bring your AAA card, tools and a CC.
  13. Northeast US cars are special. By 'special', I mean stuff rusts.
