Re: Project???

Hi Guys,

I think I just saw Peter Kumar is selling the car through Gullwing Motors for about $167.5K! He's certainly allowed to make a profit from selling a car, but if you think you couldn't stay in the black at $130K, good luck at the price now!

Re: GTE Headliners

Hi John,

I've seen this pattern for black headliners, but many headliners are beige, and have the grain pattern I described. I guess they used a different material when they wanted a black headliner.

Re: GTE Headliners

Here is 2457's (early Series-I car) and upon it's removal from the car as we were disassembling the car for restoration, I can guarantee it has never been touched and if it had, there was absolutely no evidence of it. It appeared to be 100% factory. John IMG_0986.JPG Hi John, It's hard to tell, but...

Re: GTE Headliners

The headliner material is not perforated on a 250GTE. It's usually a creamy white vinyl with a very fine grain in the texture. I may have a sample if you need it. I believe Re-Originals has the right stuff, but make sure you know what you're ordering. Don't rely on them to tell you what to buy! They...

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Hi AD,

Get a spark tester or a timing light, and confirm all the spark plugs are firing on the left bank. Check each plug wire and see if the wire triggers the timing light, or spark checker when the engine is running.

Re: Tom's Party at Quail

Great to see everybody, Tom's party reminds me that behind the glitz and show of the week its essentially just about people and cars. Thanks to Tom ! Graham and Tamara Hi Graham, I take it as a compliment that I can bring the glitz down to something more pedestrian! Great to see you and Tamara. Tom

I've always seen this body color, but need to see if I have any pictures of original paint cars to confirm.

Re: Removiing Rocker Arm Shafts

Hi Bob,

Sorry I'm late to the conversation, but I've been out of town. Yes, we have a fixture to do the rocker arm removal, but it can be done with some creative shop skills!

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

How many turns out are the idle screws set at, and I would ask the same question, what is showing it's running rich?
