Good project, I look forward to seeing the finished product :)

Did you get the SPICA pump rebuilt?

Same here!

The spica pump had been rebuilt bij schafferus in Germany. But I am still thinking of what to do.

Use the spica pump. Or use the two dellorto DHLA40E carbs I have. I Will have to decide soon though. I have all the needed european parts as well. Got 95 percent from an older collector. Plus my air pumps bearings are done for.

it is a hard decision to be honest. I like the ambiance a carb provides. But I also like originality. Although, partly. I am fitting eu stainless steel bumpers instead of those rubber blocks.

Not brown......? (sad face....) View attachment 1760185

Hey, it's YOUR car! You get to pick!

By the way, you're doing nice work! And check out that hood with louvers and a blister in pic 5 - what's that going on?
It was tricky. I somewhat like the originality and rarity of the duco Brown color but in the end I like red more. And to be honest it is going to be Rosso Corsa 322.

The hood in the back is for a classic Opel. (Both not mine)

after the paint job the engine will need a rebuild I am afraid. Cylinder 1 150 psi, 2 120 psi, 3 120 psi, 4 135 psi
