long time since I have been on here.
Update on the Toledo. It has just been repainted over the last week and once the paint has been flattened and polished it will be heading back home. It s been repainted in the same colour - Emerald green or close to it.
Looking forward to putting it all back together - although it is mostly there already mostly just windows/doors needs to be reassembling. And the chrome trim, lights grills etc. What is used to re-attache the trim to the paint work? If I can get away with not using those wee clips on the new paint work I would be happy.
I have managed to get a set of black leather seats from and Alfa 156v6 but will leave the standard seats in while i do the registration certification process but it will get the minilites and new tyres put on that are sitting waiting in the garage.
BTW this is the inspiration for my car - Im yet to see one of these BMW's in NZ so will make do with a triumph instead!

Currently the car has a 1500 engine in standard form which I ma looking to upgrade once everything has been done. Im not sure if I should persevere with this engine or try and find a tr7/1850 engine and overdrive gearbox - I imagine this will require changing of springs etc but am quite keen to go down this path.
I haven't worked out the details of which carb etc I am going to use but hopefully I could switch from a 1500 to 1850 with out changing the carb if i got say a 32/36 weber or something similar. If any one has a suitable manifold for a Weber I would be keen to get hold of a second hand one
Any way if anyone in NZ has a dolomite engine and overdrive gearbox sitting in a shed somewhere I would be keen to hear about them.
Will attach some pictures once I've got it all back together again.
