Matter of fact allways my dream to restore a car sometime. Now i do.
Yes did my best on the HEMI engine, i like the style of it, the robust built and layout of it all. The cross flow head with V-shaped valve setting is rather big, flowed and ported it for better flow.
Some other pics/vids:
Here you see the car being treated with acryllic paint for publicitairy reasons at a motorshow:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36FHwPvP9pA
After that it stood at the art gallery for allmost a year where i discovered it. After the "deal" the artpiece being moved to my residence
Delivered on his new home, the garage where the body still hangs now for restauration.
Rotating body in the garage, on floor the Mig welding machine i bought for restauration.http://www.youtube.com/user/skarsnuten7 ... pphbpl-dU8
The body is from rear to the bulkhead ready, new fender rims rear, welded holes, new rockers (made a L and R from 2 new Left rockers, but for a 4 seater) and much more welding i cannot remember.
Oh yes, the subframe under radiator is completely reconstructed by myself out of 1.5mm steel sheet!:
The old vs new; old had a rather swiss-cheese appearance
Again before-after pics:
Sand blasted them, painted in Zinc primer, painted with a bristle in high-gloss black, polished the Stainless rims.
Treated all the different parts like that, such as the shocks, suspension parts, subframe, rear axle, revised the transaxle, radiator, wiper mechanism, etc etc. and stocked them in my garage in labelled boxes awaiting re assembly.
The 4 shifter T40 tranni will not be used, found a 2nd hand T50 and overhauled it, changed 1 noisy bearing.
Reassembled the engine: (8 cil LOL!)
Improved the valve rocker mechanism with clamps instead of springs, lathed and drilled the clamps myself.
Increased valve lift 1mm by means of modifiing the rocker arm profile to the valve stems:
And added the mikunis, here you see the flow/port job also:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3HMDrmUrSY
And dec. 31st 2010, i tested the engine and it started right away!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVBIObam_DEhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBROxTlS ... re=related
