Did some more cleaning, and old paint and rust removing, and paint the new parts back in black,
and i got my fuel sender unit, looks nice, and fits, now i need a lot of otherparts to put it all back together, a lot of parts already in the usa, and i take it home when i'm on holiday in the usa,

After my vacation in july (usa roadtrip and corvair convention) i can put it all back together, and it wil look like a lakewood again (for some parts hahaha)

:woo:

Old VS cleaning - sandblasting

I think that you have a better-looking parts collection than Clark's Corvair Parts! I'm really looking forward to when you "stir the pot" and "bake" a brand-new Lakewood! That will really be something to see!!

May be... but you still are posting pictures of a lot of hand-cleaned, painted, and restored used components that often look better than new. I would hate to see your shipping and postage bill totals. It may add up to more than the original dealer MSRP for a brand new Lakewood!

So set up the rotisserie, stir the parts pot, and bake a 2013 Corvair II Lakewood Station Wagon NG (New Generation) Euro Edition! ::-):

:banghead: I would hate to see your shipping and postage bill totals. :sad5: ME TO hahahaha :tongue:

It is like 100 dollars = 100 euro + the 50% (tax - import tax - shipping) = the total price for a part to arrived at my door, so for every 100 dollar parts = 150 euro = 195.12 US Dollars :my02: :my02:


Thats a quick calculation, but most of the times its in a range of 10 bucks more or less

*so be glad you live in the usa hahahaha,

But it is a hobby, and hobby cost money, and eveytime i get a package home, it looks like christmas :woo:

So we try to fix / clean most of the parts, but for the technical parts, it will be new.

I thought that was the best wagon before you started this. I can not imagine how it will look when finished. Wow!

I just finished restoring my 61 Lakewood. I could have learned a few things the easy way by watching your step by step restoration. Great job! :tu:
