  1. ...i really would like to dump a 911 turbo motor into a Fiat 500 like this one....OK OK OK, I know, this is a Z site!! i'll stop now http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Cars-Trucks___500R-Super-clean-ready-to-drive_W0QQitemZ270307498409QQddnZCarsQ20Q26Q20TrucksQQddiZ2282QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUS_Cars_Trucks?hash=item270307498409&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245&_trkparms=65%3A7%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318
  2. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Cars-Trucks___1959-Fiat-Multipla-Van-like-500-600-Isetta_W0QQitemZ200283278923QQddnZCarsQ20Q26Q20TrucksQQddiZ2282QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUS_Cars_Trucks?hash=item200283278923&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245&_trkparms=65%3A7%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318 funny how the guy says it the most complete one of 3 he has LOLLOL
  3. check out a few threads down from this one on 'body and paint' called 'engine bay repaint..on a budget' took me...i dunno...20 -30 hrs for all the disassembly and prep 2hrs to actually spray the cans. add another 50-60 hrs for all the polished parts... hey wait a minute..... you've posted on that thread YOURSELF about two up from the bottom...???? and you're still asking LOLLOL?? JUST GET IN THERE AND DO IT LOLLOLLOL!!!
  4. couldn't have said it better myself. we think alike Dave!
  5. dave..nice motor, rad and eng bay! as for the header heat...heat floats up, and the galvanized heat hield would block most anyway i was more concerned with vibration being on the block, but i hard-rubber mounted it. after about 1500miles and ALL kinds of driving conditions, no problems tough call for your ig syst. lots of stuff. i guess if you really wanted to hide it you could custom some LLOOONNNGGGG wires and mount them under the dash in passenger footwell or somewhere...
  6. attached to the block, where the smog pump went. wrapped and routed the wires aside the radiator, then across, to the coil, then up under the thermostat....also added an overflow tank from a '77Z. sorry for the dark images. had the garage overhead lights on and used a flash...i guess the light reflects off and away, rather than back straight into the camera...pita.. i have to give credit to Al Leary (convertable yellow 'roadzster') for the coil idea.
  7. thanks fellas, i used rattle cans from the local Autozone/Advanced Auto Part stores. i used the primers, paints and clear coats all in the same brand name (Dupli-color)for compatability. i used a two-part epoxy body filler from FibreGlast-#1100 www.fibreglast.com -1800-838-8979. once the stuff cured i feathered it out and final sanded everythiing in 400g paper, then a heavy wash with wax and grease removing solvent (local body shop supply house). in the end it paid off. it won a local Z-show for custompaint (!) and street mod, and a second place in Cleveland for street-mod beandip: thanks i know..., but no plans on reshooting in the future. as for a heads up for future owners, i don't think there will be any as the car will be my coffin!! i posted the motor in other threads, but here's the final outcome:
  8. sad but true be careful Rob, carl makes a good point. over the past year i've met FOUR local 'Z guys' who have (had) the BEST INTENTIONS of doing full nut and bolt restorations..... after meeting EACH one in person, they ALL got in over thier heads, spending THOUSANDS of dollars on new parts which are STILL sitting in boxes, and a rusted Z STILL rotting in thier yard....it's very easy to start the project and it get sidelined after a few months...one guy i met is going on 10years, and it still looks as if he bought the car a month ago and just disassembled it...(seriously!) good luck again, but be careful.
  9. funny how we all differ i on the other hand, locate new or very good condition replacement parts THEN THROW OUT THE OLD immediately. it always keeps my garage clutter free and organized. i also NEVER missed any of the stuff i threw out, and had ZERO regrets. come to think of it,... after i upgraded to an L28, i took the original (blown) 2.4L block to the steel yard that weekend.....anything that was in 'good shape' during my restoration...i sold on eBay. my car is heavily modified from stock and determined from the get-go that i was never going 'revert' back to original.... good luck!

    My Car Won't Start

    you have spark-yes, you have gas-yes. how about air? check air flow meter too. i'm not big on F.I. (like sblake, et al) but i had an AFM crap out on me once.
  11. by the looks of your heirloom, ask yourself....how big is my budget?
  12. CK1: just curious as to your price point since the silver 73 on eBay, with only 5700 original miles sold for ~$21,000.... also, i live about 40mins south of you in Toms River.....if you'd like to meet up and "talk Z sh*t", let me know )... i've been a Z guy for 20yrs
  13. adam (CK1), no offense, and with all due respect...after eleven months, a downturn in the economy, and debate throughout the previous threads...... you're asking 12.5% MORE than your original ($20,000-Jan '08) price? ...($22,499 as advertised in the classifieds on this site)
  14. basically,.... it's the FIRST thing to rip out and throw in the garbage
