    #12 under way...

    Post  Tiger on Wed Jun 24, 2009 7:16 pm

    sunny Kev10104 & I picked up a sad looking "rolling chassis" '82...Engine/frame/wheels/wire loom/front & back lights but not much else on her!!! All the rest of the parts were in two totes!!! Several parts are missing...Gas tank, master cylinder, clutch perch, left side diamond shaped plastic... but I should have them "in stock"

    Last night I gave her an all over soaking in degreaser, scrubbed her from top to bottom, front to back...and then power washed her completely down. Then I washed her over again with a wax wash, rinsed and dried her off...She doesn't look half as bad today sunny

    I've installed new plugs/wires/caps, Pos/neg power leads, replaced the fusebox/fuses with modern blade type including the one in the headlight.

    When I removed the coil, on the left side, the ground wire was snapped off!!! I picked it up in the loom and grafted a new wire with a ring terminal and added it back in at the coil, once I had cleaned that part of the frame back to bare metal.

    The carbs are out for cleaning and the gas tank/plastics are away for painting. She will be sporting a new bright Red look very soon...

    ...and I have a new owner lined up, ready and waiting with $$$ in hand sunny

    Cool ...TIGER... Cool
