Some minor but important things are getting done. The summer heat in OK is pure evil. Driving around in a tin can without insulation is unbearable. So, Chuppy's been getting some insulation to keep the cold in and hot out. I bought the insulation off of Ebay for a decent price but quickly realized I could have gone down to Lowe's and gotten the same stuff...

Image

I've also begun making the door panels. I decided to use aluminum--its simple and works. The panels have insulation on the back side and will be painted black.

Rear interior panel in the middle of getting painted:

25 years ago headlights sucked...or people had way better night vision. Having had previous good luck with Autopal H4 housings, I bought another set.

Installed:

Autopals are cheap and better yet, they have nearly the same beam pattern as Hella H4s. Chuppy's a budget project...I like cheap over name brand Bling! Bling!

Looks good! I love seeing cars that one may have thrown away restored by another. :tu: Makes me want to go out and find a KP61!

Thanks guys. The interior is coming along pretty well.

As for the Weber, I don't see why every Starlet doesn't have one. Brilliant carbs. Much better acceleration, starts easier, and is way smoother throughout the rpm range.

I just got my 1981 kp61 and ran across your build here. I have a weber on my engine too and ironically the guy who owned it sprayed the valve cover red too. He must have seen your starlet. Anyways I was wondering were do you get all your engine parts such as gaskets and bushings etc. I know you used some aw11 parts there but oem parts are very hard to find, especially the valve cover gasket. Also do you happen to know were I can find a passenger window and a windshield I want my kp looking good like yours.

You know, sending him a PM or an email might have been better than digging up a 2 year old thread from a user who isn't around any more. :wink:
