Great job, The 600 is coming along nicely. I have a question since I see you rebuilt the motor. I have a 72 600 sedan and I am having a hard time finding the oil plug. Its not a normal plug because it looks like it has an oil pressure sensor type of rod going through it. Did you have this on your motor? I am going buggy trying to find some one to help out on figuring this out as well as looking for the part online. I am also not sure if I can just put in the normal plug because this is what all the parts places are saying that goes in their. I am starting the restoration process. Here is a picture of the item I have.

It's looking really nice. The chrome and badges are exceptional. Did you work out your tacho?

thanks mate, yeah i got the tacho sorted, found a housing and camshaft with drive on it amongst my spares and located a cable in the US. it didn't have the tacho cause it was a automatic deluxe model originally (now converted to a manual), so it had all the deluxe features (rear wheel carrier, front disc's, woodgrain dash etc. but it was less the tacho and the centre console.

Nitrous.. Wanted to chime in and say kudos on the work so far.. such time and energy, and the results show it :tu: Your's is turning out far, far cleaner than most.. Please keep the pics coming- very inspirational!

I wonder if you have a wider shot of the grille/headlights? It seems you've swapped to halogen/HIDs? They look wonderful.. do you have a part #? Was it an easy fit? Are you happy with the result?

Given that our cars are so small, I've considered converting to 5 3/4" halogens/HIDs, but I need to see how the smaller lights would look 'floating' in the stock grille..

thanks ccrunner, its been a fun project so far.

i've attached some photo's of the headlights and grill that i have on my computer, i'll see if i can get better pictures in the next few days.

i think the 7" ones look fine on the car, i think the gap might look a bit off with the 5 3/4" ones. i'd track down an old 5 3/4" one to try, just to see what its like, i don't have a part number for the lights, i got them from a local auto1 store, but thwy look much like the ones that are on ebay. they were about $90 the pair and i just fitted some bright white phillips globes to them.

thanks.

:D

i got the rubbers a couple years back from this bloke here in Tassie

http://www.facebook.com/JohnsClassicAutoReplacements

he had them to me in no time, think it was $90 for front and $70 for the rear one or something and they fit perfect. also got new clip that hold the body strips on from him too.


No i won't be fitting chrome to the rubber, 1 there's no spot for it. 2 its prone to fade and crack like the originals.

That is a beautiful finish and color. I really like the non USA body style with the tight fitting bumpers and no side markers. Did you have any clearance issues with the rear shocks? I tried to fit that style on my 1970 and the upper shock body contacted the car body.

this one did have the bigger bumpers with the trays, but it just doesn't look right with them.

the shocks were tight they just clear the body, i ever so slightly cleaned up the weld seam in the inner guard to get a bit more clearance and removed the thick anti-chip coating just where they mount. :D a much much nicer ride now.
