Hi guys
this is my 1977 Tc Coupe

i though i would update this with some pics of what ive started to do and what i plan to do to it over time


What its got:
extractors
2ltr with a 1600 head
slightly tinted windows
2 1/4 inch exhuast
set of 14 inch rims
4 speed manual
wood grain steering wheel
lowered on king springs
kenwood 6x9's in the back
kenwood head set
34 adm weber
nolathane bushes


What i want to do:
put on the 34 adm weber
cut rust out
repaint it (same colour)
maybe redo the interior but not sure

What does everyone reckon?

Cheers
Chris

How bad is the rust? Can't notice anything in the photo. I'm starting to wish I had come up with the $3,000. I like that colour on a Gem.

the rust isnt that bad only in the normal areas, there rnt any rust holes anyway. :D

few more updates
forgot to add that it has nolathane bushes
i put in a kill switch today and replaced the rear brake shoes cos one was covered in oil
cos the cylinder was leaking but all fixed and now all working

all thats left is the reversing lights and the horn
my uncle and i found two horns in the car both seem to work one sounds like a 1930's tug boat :lol: and the other sounds pretty normal
now just gotta find out where the wiring has gone rong we think its a dodgy earth
but will sort it out
