I'm new to the website. I recently bought an Opel GT '73. I think I'm lucky with the purchase, since my car is complete (original parts in place); rust-free as far as I can tell. I'm planning to install a body kit and new paint, put in new carpet and upholstery, with Euro seats, a stereo system, new tires and rims, disc brakes all around, new sway bars, new silicone bushings, and a 5-speed transmission. But I'm totally new to this Opel experience, and hoping for guidance from all of you.
The electrical system, for what I can see, is in most need for repair. I removed a headlight, to find the harness totally corroded. Where's the best place to get a new harness? That would be the first place to start in on my project.
I will also appreciate some info on where to take my car to be repainted, since I'm in a boring part of the Northwest (Seattle), and willing to travel to Oregon, Idaho, even Canada for a good paint job.
