Re: 124 Spider Abarth Stradale Build

while I do not have much of great intelligence to add, I should say that I thoroughly enjoy seeing this kind of well thought-out information shared. From time to time, you see cars like the finished product...either in person or on the 'net. For me, I am always curious how the car came to be and it ...

Re: FreakOut video

I sort of think 'display only' would be cooler all around. I'd rather see prizes for the car that goes through it's paces best than which one looks best or liked most. That said, I'm sure my thoughts are an oulier.

Favorite way to protect your driveway (engine cleaning)

I really never imagined that I would be asking a question like this but as a result of I suppose a chair leg affect related to our garage construction we are putting new concrete down for our driveway. So I’m curious if any of you routinely do things like clean your engine and do so in a way where y...

Re: To weld or "glass"

In my case it would seem a lot more like hard work to fiberglass than it would to weld. That’s not to say it would end up a thing of beauty, but if the point is to stabilize the rust and not impair the structure, the answer is probably more about what you are comfortable with than a purely “right” t...

Re: 124 sedan pedal box (3 pedals), 124 Coupe driveshaft

Yes, this would be for an auto ->manual conversion, so I do have a sedan box & I definitely have plenty of pedals. I haven't had a chance to really look, but I'll check what I have to work with & based on the comments here I'm betting I'll be okay. The driveshaft difference between spiders & sedans/...

Re: To weld or "glass"

That is funny. Having the MIG & all, I think patching + seam sealer/whatever is simple. It could be done meticulously in a fashion of which even Brad would approve, or it could be done time/function-efficiently and my guess is that either fashion would be adequate. The only thing I would (personally...

124 sedan pedal box (3 pedals), 124 Coupe driveshaft

The pedal box is different for a 124 sedan than a 124 Sport, right? Anyway, I guess the title says it all. I guess this is as likely a group of people is any actually have these send me obscure parts laying around. Not in a big hurry for either but I thought I’d go ahead and put a feeler out. Thanks...

Re: 1974 124 Wagon TC Restoration

only caveat for the wagon is it has a different shock configuration, but my bet is that is an external difference only. I SHOULD know this, but i've been too busy learning about construction instead lately.

Re: 1974 124 Wagon TC Restoration

I can not imagine the differential is any different than one from any other pre-78 124.
