      The slow transformation.

      A bit back I settled on the notion I was going to paint my car.

      However, since I don't have the budget to have it painted by someone I've chosen to do it myself.

      My garage is only slightly...

      Sorta wild about the cost!

      They have a storefront on Amazon and have them listed there. I bought a box back in February 2019 so I'd have them on hand.

      I wonder what number the chassis is on the P1900? There were quite a bit less than 100 of those cars made if my memory serves me correctly.

      Looks like it's in a little bit better shape than mine, other than drivetrain it's more complete than my brick. Do you have the OEM steering wheel or is the current one all you have?

      Awesome! Thanks for replying. I like how you mounted it on your crossflow radiator. I'll have to look and see if I can do similar on my topflow.

      Electric cooling fans

      Okiedokie, who here has installed an electric fan on their 142-4-5 or 164? (Or any B18-20A-B-E-F engine really)

      How does one remove this bit of trim? Mine is intact but it's still rough and I'd like to get behind it to remove all the stuff left there by the car's previous furry occupants.

      I love the original seats.

      What did you do with the original steering wheel? If you still have it and don't want it I'd like to know what you'd sell it for.

      Certainly, Ron's kit from his website makes the conversion extremely easy. I made the swap on my first Volvo ages ago back in Technical College in 1987 with a crudely oxyacetylene welded bracket.

      I love VP, but the maintenance on their sprawling site can be a bit vexing. I don't think it's deliberate, they just don't have enough labour resources to keep ahead of it.

      This was measured at the front carb with the hose removed and then directly connected to the gauge . Performed at idle with the fuel that remained in the bowls.

      Thanks a bunch! I'm using a low pressure gauge 0-15psi and I felt that was way too high. Oddly the fuel bowls are not flooding.

      SU HS6 fuel pressure

      I seem to find multiple pressure numbers for these carbs in the net. (B20F converted engine)

      Why do I want to know?

      Currently my mechanical pump is putting out 6+ PSI and that seems high to me.

      Yeppers!

      I came across this reproduction back in January, the shipping charges made it too costly. It may take time but I'll replace all of them.
