Re: Industrial space for shop / garage

Excellent idea, I'll check. There are several.

Industrial space for shop / garage

I'm going to be losing my garage shortly and need a space to store and work on a few cars and maybe place a small boat. Anyone rent space like this and can give ideas/opinions, esp. in the Atlanta area?

So you're saying the past is repeating itself?

Re: How are new spider sales doing?

Given FCA's strategy with Jeep all they need to do is put a "Jeep" logo on everything and people will buy them. That's pretty much what a Jeep Renegade is, a FIAT 500X with some plastic and tail lamps applied to it.

Re: Welding

This is a little wire feed machine. Works for rough work, as my brother says "good for welding a chain to a trailer"

Welding

Used a welder for the first time yesterday, welded up some cracks on a land rover rear tire mount.

I'm really quite terrible at making pretty welds. My welds look like someone jabbed at the cracks with something dripping metal. It's strong as heck but I have a new appreciation for welders.

Re: Classic Motorsports 1969 124 Spider

I guess I mean the latter of the 3...trick pieces, lots of time/thought/experience put in & a nice car by a reasonable accounts, but not doing the detailing of matching the engine bay. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing...just saying that the way people do/present these cars (or, hell maybe any car)...

Re: How are new spider sales doing?

The two or three FIAT dealerships I see are advertising big inventories and price reductions. I don't think FIAT knows how to market cars.

Re: Mystery intake port question

Personally I’d throw that 79 head in the trash and get a 1800 or 2000 FI head. But if you can’t do that then I’d be concerned not about the circular port (it’s egr, disconnect it on both sides and plug the exhaust) but that second port looks like a water port your manifold isn’t covering.

Re: Classic Motorsports 1969 124 Spider

The engine bay yellow is not positano yellow but that greenish bright yellow. Positano was more like the exterior color, kind of an orange yellow. ---------------------------------------------- --Brad, I make that mistake a lot.....I think that light yellow '69 color was probably "Colorado" yellow,...
