For reference / comparison, here's what 11j x 15" with the early Hard Top works overfenders looks like. Quite a lot of wheel under there.

I think my 10j will protrude on your car if you use the stock GT-R overfenders. Can't remember the offset of the 10js off the top of my head. Will have to check....

Not too sure what make the inlet manifold is??

That's a Sanyo Kiki inlet manifold. In fact, the manifold, carbs, linkages and the triple round air filters are a complete Sanyo Sports Kit from the early to mid Seventies period.

Sanyo Kiki became more well known for using the 'SK' brand a little later....

The solid teflon bushing in the above photo has popped out of its housing on the upright. It should be secured with an 'E' clip ( which might have popped off? ) and the linkage will not be working as well as it should. Just slide it back in and see if you can stop it from coming out again. You might notice an improvement in carb balance once that's sorted.


Hi guys.
I think I nicked these images from VICTORY 50....some time ago now, but seems to be exactly as Alan explained
Regards
Jim.

And it'll only fit with rather a lot of negative camber too, so it isn't going to work if Dave doesn't want to slam the car.

So far, so good, Dave! At least your indicator gaskets didn't turn to powder when you removed them like mine did :D

Time for the trusty heat gun to soften off the glue. Makes the job of removing rubbers and plastics easier.

Image

The seals were modified by the last owner. A little beyond repair i think so a new set will be ordered.
Image

Now the boot seal gets the heat gun treatment, It came off a treat so i will reuse this one.
Image

Back panel finally exposed. In great shape.
Image


Image

A small repair needed due to the bumper hitting the panel. The car has had a 1/4 panel replaced in its life and way to much filler was used in the repair. This will all be dug out before we spray the car.

Great stuff! Can you tell me the brand of flashlight provided?

I'd seen a newer restoration with flares, which made me wonder - did they originally come with flash lights, or flares in the holders by the passenger door? Anyone have any period pictures?

Mine came with a flashlight, but it is a bit different than that. It looks to be original, maybe they did a couple different style in different years.
