Carbs...before and after comparison
Wheels I like but they rears are too wide. I ended up selling them and I made a $150.00 profit on them to boot! :)
These are what I have on it now. 17x7 all four corners.
235/40/17 rear. 205/40/17 front.
After I got the air cleaners painted and put back on. I was going to polish them but they are too thin and too rough.
BMW Projector Low beams and regular matching BMW Hella Halogen High Beams installed.
I checked the tranny fluid and had to put about 28oz in. It shifts a little better but I have to either be really gentle and/or double clutch it to get it into 3rd and 4th without it complaining to me. One of our fellow club members has offered to give me another tranny...I Love Corvair people!!!
I took my 13yr old daughter to the grocery store in it tonight too. I loved walking out of the store and seeing the Corvair and knowing it was mine! My daughter thinks it is cool too.
The motor is still ticking, and the knock is still there and doesn't go away when I push in the clutch so I am not sure what it is yet. I fear the worst. :(
I am loving this car though. :)
It consists of a Classic Autosound two knob retro style head unit.
An old-school D-Class Alpine V12 amp.
Two 6x9 Clarion component speakers with passive crossovers.
One Infinity Reference 10" dual voice coil sub woofer.
I used some of the material I bought to do the seats and door panels to cover the box.
I am running the sub bridged at 2 ohms on Channel 3 and the components as channels 1 and 2 on the amp.
The head unit came with an aux input that I have my iPod hooked up to.
I am pretty impressed with the sound considering it's only a single sub and its under powered but I am happy.
Looks like it's coming along well.
I'm thinking of posting a thread on my '65 Convertible project and might as well start with
the as-found shot.
Thanks for the inspiration, Mel
And you got a great price to start with.
Keep up the good work!! 8-)

Got the old motor out last night. It has a cracked flywheel (see pic).
Tonight we are going to put the new motor in and then my old motor will get a freshening up and be put into a '64 Coupe as a surprise gift for my Dad.
I'm not sure how far he got, I haven't seen it since 3AM last night. I'll post more pics later.
