    Maybe boardmember Joko has! a 430 FS in The Netherlands

    Oops, sorry guys, i didn't look at this thread. That 430 seems to be interesting. If Erik and Rob tell me that John knows what he is doing i can trust you. It all depends on the price though.

    now it's done ... he is home in my garage. took him home yesterday, all complete with a full tech inspection, redone drum brakes and history plates

    2.jpg 1.jpg

    now the journey of fixing stuff will start. First step will be the driver side door. For some reason I can't open it from outside. My mechanic said something from a broken retention spring somewhere inside ...

    Beside that, new wheels are necessary. something in 15" or 16" ... maybe different width front and back, need to check what fits first

    and there is already a list of other stuff of course:
    • new weatherstripping for the doors and trunk (driver side is basically gone)
    • new locks for doors and ignition (keys don't match and are not compete)
    • dashboard is loose on driver side (is it difficult to remove it completely refurbish some spots once I'm on it?)
    • to be continued *g


    regards
    Chris
