Tacho defekt, Dimmer defekt, Uhr defekt oder Umbau auf Quarzwerk? Kein Problem!

I have them in the back but my car is more Pro Street-ish so that's on purpose but for a circuit racer replica you should look for 45 or 50 series tires.
Its only good, when You do it yourself.

deswegen ja die passende farbwahl.... sieht man nicht ganz so leicht.
und der Commodoro ist schneller..... und verbraucht weniger auf 100km sanddünen... :wink: das könnte helfen.
Solange keiner aus der Zunkunft zurück reist um mich aufzuhalten, können meine Ideen gar nicht soooo übel sein. :wink:

You are right, but I was thinking of putting the 245:s on the rear axle only and use 205:s or 215:s up front. Without power steering it would otherwise be a bear to turn. But I might as well use 225:s or 235:s on the rear axle. I want to use high sidewalls on purpose, to keep the revs around 2900RPM in fourth at 100km/h,( Im after all going to drive the thing to Opel meets around the country). A poor mans overdrive, sort of. :mrgreen: At least there should be enough grunt in the three liter engine. The cheapest alternative would probably be 215/65 14. :)

You are probably right, and I think the people there have already seen enough tanks for a lifetime. :)

This time we were bolting off the driveshaft from the parts car, it was ok, except a little play in the front universal joint. I have to figure out where to find a new joint, or perhaps cut the yoke complete with UJ from a spare Commodore B GS/E drive shaft and weld it on the Commodore A shaft.

Yes, it is a shame when people let their cars deteriorate to such condition, but it already was in that sad shape when we got it. The good thing is that we could use a lot of its parts, so it won't die for nothing. And best of all, the car was completely free ! :) The front bumper isn't so good when you take a closer look, there is some collision damage and scratches. :)

Today we started making foundations for seating our sorry asses. 60cm of 10mm x 50mm flat iron and some welding and we have something to bolt the Monza GSE seat on. For some reason I had a short in my brain and bought flat iron for just one seat. Well I guess I have to visit the hardware store again tomorrow. :mrgreen:

Here's another shot of the console mounts:

By the way, we found out that the transmission tunnel is not centered in the car, it's about 30mm to the right from the centerline of the car. We discovered it when we were centering the right seat. Yet another thing I didn't know before. :mrgreen:

We were forced to shoot the epoxy primer before the weather became too cold, because the garage the car is being built in has no heating. So leaving the inside floor unpainted wasn't an option in a cold damp environment, even though we hadn't done the fastening points for the seats yet. :)

Next I must find a new universal joint for the drive shaft, but there doesn't seem to be any originals available anywhere. I got a tip that an universal joint from a Toyota Hi Ace fits, except that it can't be fastened with the original Commodore clips, so it must be welded with a couple of dabs in the circumference of the cups instead. :)
