well ill get her up at the shop and get some perfect "square" and 3/4 shots for us to work with for choping etc

the more i think about what i saw of that transaxle...and drums..the more i think "YOU" will never be happy with either....shrug..id say come drive my 58 ford and tell me what you think cause its about the vintage in the feel more than the quality of the ability

im sure we can get some disc's on it tho......atleast up front where it counts

going to be a "how far" do you want to deviate..cause as a wagon most of the tail works..as the elegant ride i think we see up front.... tail lights and all out backs gotta change..its too flashy dated and modern all at the same time...
the tail lights are VERY GM but i dont know off what ..i should know but i dont im thinking pontiac..and the bumper has that same deal..they need to flow and they look slapped on

I'm seeing the back as fine, but just lose the big chrome bumper - pretty much replace it with painted sheet metal. Gray on the sides under the turns, but black in back. Then, just a narrow strip of chrome to separate the two colors. [very rough draft] I think this treatment could work, wagon or no.

See, the flow will be down the sides - lose that line between where the chrome is now and where the paint stops. Then the turns will look good set in their notch.

We are going to have to both get digitizers and cad software. Unless we can get a certain demonologist to do some sketching for us.

From what I hear, the guys in Europe have them. I don't think it will be that big a deal. Not cheap, but not too bad.

Well, obviously. What I meant was, is it an [edit] 813 (2.5L) or an 826 (2.8L)? And do you have the conventional gearbox/clutch (hopefully) or one of the dreaded Saxomats?

It has a clutch pedal. Does that mean, hopefully, that it is not a Saxomat?

well ill be able to further comment on engine/trans in a lil while..im headed for the shop to unload her

how does one ID the saxomat?....i know on "most" of the micro cars the saxomat was nothing more than an air assist cyl that replaced the clutch pedal....and this girls got a clutch pedal

how does one ID what engine it is...ill pull the # off it for sure

mentioning dodge and bullet all i can think of now is ...how would that 1956 354 hemi of mine look under that hood LOL..but that engine is a TANK

LOL. Don't stop now. How about a 24 valve Glenwood Screamer? You said the bay was huge. Should I call JJ and order one? He11, for that matter, maybe my original idea was best: the 348 engine, custom made torque tube, and, at the back, the 348 tranny.

Somehow, if we are going to go full custom on this thing, it's got to have an 8, no? But that means it's got to be an Italian 8.

BTW, I was doing some reading on the Lancia forum last night. This guy was saying that the trick to getting a sympathetic metallic paint job on these cars is to use a very fine flake, and then shoot it so that you don't use clear on top. He said that the last job he did like that took about 10 test panels, making small adjustments on each one, before it came out just right. I guess that with 2 colors, we'll need 20 test panels...
