Restoration is back on track (with a lot of help)

Yes, I can't believe I have friends like this. I am so excited to go on some fun summer cruises. Is yours next Bryan? :)

One running, one not. Still cruising, still lazy!

By the way, Mike - I definitely like the new wheels better than those Boyd's. Konigs, I assume?

Hi guys... yep, the new wheels are Konig Rewinds. The wheel size is 15", but, I am only borrowing those wheels. I will be using 16" Konig or Panasports...

Here are the videos directly embedded in the forum:

Mike, You haven't answered the question yet...Are you bringing your car to the MSA show in April? With a new location it should be really nice. Would it be possible to have a group from Classic Zcar? I will be flying in from Colorado again. I hope to see you there(and all you other Z guys, too).

Cheers, Mike G.

Congrats on finally getting is finished and back on the road. I'm sure it must feel great to finally be able to enjoy the car from behind the wheel. I love the triple SU setup. Very unique and visually appealing. How does it perform with them?

Decided to update my build thread with some of my latest photos in 2019.  Old thread, time to bring her back to life after installing new VTO wheels and BFG summer tires...

Both new wheels/tires here:

New in front (no caps), and old wheels on the rear..

Both new wheels on the passenger side:

Old wheels on the rear, driver side, just for comparison...

Here's the fit on the rears...

@=Enigma=, I know it's been a few years since you asked this question.  The triple SU's were very unique and pulled hard.  They weren't mine and built by Steve at Ztherapy.  He wanted to make a point by building something that other said "could not be done..."

In the end, Steve installed my triple Mikuni's which I think sound much better.  🙂

Looking good! What do you think of the BFG SC2 so far?

Hey @LeonV, I like their appearance and tread pattern.  I haven't driven them yet due to brake issues (leaky hydraulic switch), but, will let you know once I'm able to street test.

Update, I found my original door and engine plates in a random box.  I did start another post to discuss replacements below.  Glad I found these before I purchased new ones.

Here's the post I created about buying and creating new plates:

Faceplate and knobs are in great shape.  Looks like 'AM2' was the owner's favorite.
