What are your wheel / tire specs? You look like you've got some fatties up front!

I recall reading that you're running 16x7's all around?

Welllllll, Six months later and 3 house rehab projects later....

Upon tear down found that there was almost .090" of slop between the barrels and the case... No wonder I had a terrible oil leak, those barrels were just flopping around on the case.... And the main journals on the crank were worn. Sent it out for a little grinding, so it is .010" under now.

New parts have arrived, case has been machined, long barrels machined, new cam, new pistons and some total seal rings..... Now I'm looking for all that ambition (OK any ambition) to get started working on this old thing.....

New Parts



I'm trying to see some new swing arms setting here.... Might have to break out some more ambition. LOL

SOOOO, been sweating my butt off when I'm outdoors, so turn on the a/c in the shop and decided to do some stuff on the Ghia...

And of course there has to be some drama.... Opened the box that has held my new TMI carpet kit for a few years... Yep it's Black!! CHECK

Opened the box that has held my new door panels for 6-7 years... Yep, they're bla...c.... .. DAMN



OH Well, on they go .. .. Wait a minute -- Damn no rear panels … Gots to love this stuff...

OK, Time to start putting in the carpet kit... Houston we're going to have issues



So, I start cutting a little here and a little there --- Squeezing my BIG old butt in between the bars, under the bars.... Only got stuck a few times and only took 2 bottles of Ivory soap to get me out LOL.. In the end, I think there was more shards of the carpet on the floor than in the car.....



Now I just have in invent some rear panels to put into the car and I need to find some Door sills …..

Anybody know where I can get some???


Thanks for reading....

Nice to see you back in the saddle again..

TMI carpets - I think they’re “cut to fit” by design. :-p
