Just bought this car, here in Brazil parts and preparation are VERY EXPENSIVE, but I'm taking it slow!
The car was totally wrecked, slowly I'm fixin... Show moreg it, got new 15" Rims from Kromma (Brazilian company), with 195/55 BFGoorich tires, the Rims received a special Dark Silver in the back and a special paint called "CHROME LOOK" here in Brazil, it looks nice.
Now the paint job and body is a bit banged, but I'll make this car new!
The paint job and Body work will be the next step! Engine is running great, gear and clutch are new, suspensions and brakes are new.
This engine was totally destroyed, running with 4 Gasoline pistons, Gasoline Spark plugs, and to finish the terrible job, the pistons were smaller than the original.
After taking to a GREAT Chevrolet specialist (40 years of Chevy, working at GM), the car received special Alcohol pistons, alcohol spark plugs, new belts, rebuilt carburetor Webber with dual intakes (Alcohol model), new exhaust pipes (Straight down pipe, Race muffler at end), new air filter (Hard to find original Air Filter Case, just a reminder Alcohol cars need those, the work with vacuum)...
As the title informs, I've just fixed the gauge panel, got new paint, new pointers, and new LED Lights (BLUE), seeing it live, it looks like Black Lights (Party Dark Lights), only the numbers Glow in BLUE.
By the way THANKS NEON LIGHT CREW! Great products(LEDS), made here in Brazil, the BEST actually.
I had to change some internal lighting, so I've got new RED LED under the dash, and inside the original lighting compartment U.V. LED, take a look at the final results:
This picture as you can see, a sheet of paper becomes purple bright (The U.V. action).
Well to finh it all, the engine was painted the original color, it's a very small engine 1.6 liters, running on alcohol, maybe when I have some cash left.... I'll put something bigger, but for now, it is great! Show Less
