motor/trany

Postby petarm1 » Sun Nov 04, 2012 5:52 pm



spent some good quility time with my wifes 79 today and got everything loosened up.choke cable is still siezed but moved it manually at the carb.had it running for
about 3 minutes when i saw the coolant running out the right side exuast tube. i hope it is just a gasket and not a cracked head or block.

on a different note. what has everyone been doing about restoring body panels and and luggage. cant imagine that you have all been buying new parts.
thanks petar :D

Wow, hope it is just a gasket.

Body panels prime and paint up just fine. Prep is everything.

What do you do for the graphics. Can a person buy the pinstrips or are you getting them made

Your choice I guess. I hired a local guy to pinstripe mine, but I used his artist style and not Honda's. I figure there are plenty of OEM machines in museums and I wanted mine different. But most artists would be willing to match the Honda graphics too. There are repo graphics but I would need to search those and not up to it tonight.
