Registration Completed… CTS-76!

Finally got the license plates… CTS-76. I ordered right away the black license plates which will fit better the outlook of GTX. In Finland you´re able to get the black plates if the car is manufactured before 1972.

Customs clearance completed

Finally got the Finnish customs clearance about tyhe GTX import… it took 11 weeks! Taxes will be 145,66 Euros. Next Monday I´ll go to the inspection office and get my license plates!


Small fixes, part 5

Needed long under dash cable for the air grabber… seems that I need drill new hole in the firewall for that cable because of the recent sheet metal work and paitn job it was welded. The hole would be located somewhere near voltage regulator and wiper motor. And of course needed new decal for the air grabber. Also water reservoir electric pump was leaking so purchased new one.

Purchased also new convertible boot. Because the stainless trim had drilled through non original snaps, I decided to install those snaps also in the boot. Original boot had clips which attach to the trim.

New Wiper Motor

New 3 speed wiper motor waiting for installation in the spring time. Old motor does not look period correct and not working properly… having only one speed (the fastest one) and not returning to the start position.

Console Fix

Repainted the console core and added the new console carpet. Also repainted the door center trim to black. Once again, not perfect but will do for me and better than before.
