Polish it up, that quarter looks pretty good after just hitting it with 105 by hand!

LOVE this car. My brother and his ex had this exact car when they got married back in 1988. 230k on it, took them from Missouri to Yellowstone on honeymoon, moved with them to New Jersey, and then to Denver where they sold it 8 years later with 350k on it still running like a top! Ahhh, memories..... :D

you need a set of these (late 7 and 9 series) same offset as the original wheels. 15x6 et25

He makes them for the B20 too but I don't think he lists them. Since it's a six instead of four I will lose resolution but I think it will be ok.

Not really into 15" wheels.

Going to mount the LS coils right on the valve covers via standoffs. Not sure if I'm going to go with three sets of two tied together or two sets of three. Either way I'm psyched to get rid of the distributor and open up the plug gap to .060"



I'm also replacing all the fuel line hose and o-rings on the injectors and mounting the $20 vacuum referenced fuel pressure regulator I got off ebay. Hope it's not total junk but I honestly trust it more 41 year old Bosch unit.

I cannibalized a toyota 7mgte for its ignition parts.
The coils are easy, the CPS is a drop in replacement after you change the 'gear' for a volvo one of your old distributor.
The aluminium hold-on thingy needs a small touch of a lath.







more than enough resolution for full sequential ignition/injection

That's interesting about the Toyota CPS and I guess I should have done more research. I probably would have gone that route if I didn't have a DSM CAS adapter already on the way.

Progress has been slow since I was sick all last weekend. Coils turned out decent and I'm hoping to get the fuel rail back together this weekend.

Since I'm switching to a different front bumper I decided to use the horn grills for turn signals. I have two sets and one set is really rough so I mounted an LED trailer turn signals in one. Don't know if I'm sold on it. I wanted to mount the turn signal behind the horn grill but this would be a lot more visible. Thoughts?

Those LEDs should be super bright, I vote for behind a grill, maybe take a couple fins off if needed.

You don't actually have a set of those up for grabs, do you? I'm looking for a set to grab and flip the centers around for this look on my 142:

Maybe wire the side markers in as blinkers too, if there's any risk of not seeing those from an angle.

Ordered these for that exact reasoning. Just going to put them in behind the lens.

Had a couple issues and been really busy with other stuff but I'm hoping to finish this up soon. Anyways, here is the 164 as it sits right now. Kinda liking the no bumper look now. I have the earlier style grill that I think actually goes all the way down. I think I'll swap that in and see how it looks.

The early style grill will it if you cut the 'bar' under the plastic grill. you should also grab the chrome surround that comes with the early grill.

I love that look! Saw it on a black 122 on Stanceworks, and decided to go that direction on my '75 242. I was thinking of rebarelling the rear wheels so they are slightly wider, with a slightly deeper offset, rather than using spacers. And then install stock small chrome hubcaps just like I think you did.

Crazy idea, but I've also considered flipping the centers on the rear wheel, so they are concave instead of convex, for a more radical staggered look.

Keep up the great work. I'm eager to watch your progress!!
