|Super. Keep the pictures rolling in for us to enjoy.|
|Wow - it's looking really good - and I like the choice of Black too ( or is it Dark green?). What is the history of this special body? - it must be unique as I have not seen one before.|
|Amazing, would love to hear more!|
I've now got a chassis that looks like yours, only mine isn't a TC. I am painting my body black as well, red interior and a grey tonneau/ hood.
A restorer's work is never done.
I was looking over your picture and noticed the air cleaners are the same type I had at one time. Those filters are quite flat,preventing enough air to flow into the engine. I changed over to K & N's and got an improvement in exceleration. Where the gap in yours is about 3/4 inch the K & Ns are 1 1/4 inch.
Thanks for the info, I will need to start saving €120 a pair here.
