Well, after 3 years of the new paint job on my red Jetfire covering the top and bottom, I decided to add the original white vinyl top to the car. Now the car is “as issued” from the factory and completely restored. It is a great driver with great turbo boost. All working as new. Fun!
Thanks for the accolades guys!
Just when I thought this car is “ready to go”, I filled the gas tank for the first time this year (took ~10 gallons) and discovered that the gas tank has developed a leak. Will have to siphon the gas, drop the tank and see where the leak is. Fortunately, I have a Gas Tank Renu dealer close. I have used their service before and the results have been good. Always something to fix on collector cars!
Sorry to hear about the tank. I have a leak on our 4 speed car tank. I pulled out an extra I have from a 61 Buick Special and to my surprise, the filler neck is the same between them. This one is from a 27,000 mile car and was undercoated very early in its life. It is a pain getting the undecoat off but will use it till I restore the car and original tank.
