Thanks very much. I am not really restoring the car, I am just fixing what needs fixing right now. I rebuilt the motor, Jim Noel is rebuilding the turbo. The interior has new carpet, re-uphostered front seats with NOS vinyl and also armrests, thats all. Everything else is original. I am having the gas tank boiled out at the radiator shop now, the sending unit has been sent in to be rebuilt. Gas has been sitting in the tank for 25 years and was NASTY! Still need a Turbo Rocket Fluid tank, I might have to make one to use for now. I did make an air filter. Used 1/4″ hardware cloth cut to 4″ high for the inside, then found a UNI filter part #011113 that fits over the wire perfectly. Oiled it, done:
