Just doing mechanical restoration.

Super nice AZ 67 engine going back in, after new main seal, and oil cooler seals.
carb rebuild, exhaust rebuild, axle boots, motor mounts, and full service/head torque.
The car had been sitting 14 years, we decided to replace all the brake hoses and cylinder before trying the old stuff and making a mess. I dislike brake fluid very much.
Round two for Baird’s t34. Engine and transaxle are back from Painter’s. The original case has a small crack on an oil galley.volksaddictParticipantJanuary 22, 2019 at 8:21 amPost count: 318
Glad to see the T34 back up, I love that blue! Did they weld the case or replace? We never had much luck with welding cases around the pressurized oil areas back in the day.FranzKeymasterJanuary 22, 2019 at 8:29 amPost count: 1958
Replaced. The crack was vertical through the machined surface for the oil cooler seal. Sucks to loose the number matching case to this car.volksaddictParticipantJanuary 22, 2019 at 8:35 amPost count: 318
Oh yeah, can’t weld that. 🙁FranzKeymasterJanuary 24, 2019 at 9:13 amPost count: 1958
Green AZ 67 looking good. Mechanically perfect. Ready to go home for final assembly and detail.
Check out all the factory grease pencil marks.Pat KKeymasterJanuary 24, 2019 at 10:06 amPost count: 676
We started on a local project yesterday for a gentleman we have dubed Baja Mike.
We’re going to clean up the inside get it sealed in epoxy primer, put a roll cage in it, fab up shock mounts, seat mounts and a few other little things. Then he’s going to take it home for a while and love on it and it will be back to us later this spring I believe for more work.

BAJA MIKE! We do the hard stuff, Mike gets to take it home to play mock-up, (and do a bunch of welding & sanding) Then bring it back for some crazy tri-stage HOK pearl – glitter – kandy oriental blue paint job.
The denim and chrome show is later this summer. Mike is wanting to go there with this car.
This morning Chris has the car rolled on its side for round 2 of blasting. Its easier to prep and paint before we weld everything together.
