Quote from: Jan S on 04 July 2022, 05:39 PMI gave the old man new carpet floor mats today.Looks ok, but mats closer to the original carpet - i.e. without the ribs - would have been a tick better.Main purpose is to protect the original carpet which is in stunning condition considering the age of 48 yrs. Good quality!
Quote from: Jan S on 08 June 2022, 10:05 AMOver the weekend I did a first "major" test-drive since I closed several items on my to-do list. Total 820 km (510 miles) at a speed of mainly 90-120 km/h (55-75 miles/h).Car performed beautifully. Started immediately cold and warm, although rpms still too high when warm (800 should be 600 ... need to look into that). Very stable and tight at relative high speed (75+ miles/h).Average consumption 1,54 liter/10 km (15,27 miles/gallon) is the best I have ever measured (for that car). Only a few things to put the finger on:- I missed the AC, but the sunroof worked flawlessly- Minor play in the steering boxClosed items:- Renovated radiator (disassembled, sandblasted, flanges re-welded, new register, painted)- New coolant hoses and clamps in engine bay (except return heater-to-engine, and expansion tank to lower part of radiator ... will leave those to later this fall)- New thermostat- New thermostat housing incl. bolts and sealing- New engine temp/coolant temp sensor- New coolant- New ignition cap and rotor- New "100-hose" (the breather hose from idling house to air intake left and right)- New rubber boots and vacuum lines around WUR and idling house- Cleaned and tested aux air valve- Cleaned idling house incl. new seal- New injectors incl. seals- New windshield wipers- New hood isolation pad
