1973 Opel GT (Millenium Yellow)

Modifications

Drivetrain
1970 1.9L Engine, 4sp manual transmission, Weber 38 DGAS Carburetor, 65 amp high output alternator, Pertronix ignition and coil.
Block is back from the machine shop after being bored out for 2.0L pistons, and the head is back from a different machine shop after having 2.0L valves and Isky "combination" cam installed. - OGTS is more addictive than Crutchfield.
Interior
The OGTS cut-pile carpet kit is mostly installed at this point, and I had the seats professionally recovered at a shop near where I work. They turned out really nice, but right now they are wrapped in plastic to keep them from getting ruined in the garage. With a little help from a friend, I also got the headliner installed.
I have the OGTS stitched dash cover about half installed right now, I really need to finish that.
Exterior
Body work and paint are complete, the color is "Millennium Yellow" chosen from a 2004 Corvette owned by somebody who just happened to be playing pool at the same place I was one night.
Audio
This car is its own entertainment, but I have a RetroSound Model Two receiver, Jensen DUBa4100 amplifier, Kenwood KSC-SW11 powered subwoofer, and four Polk Audi DXi651s speakers, none of which is installed yet. Crutchfield is addictive.
Suspension
Currently suspended above ground on some wheel dollies, otherwise fully stock, I haven't entirely decided what to do in this area yet.
Wheel and Tire
ASA JS1 Wheels - Silver 15" - If anybody knows where to find another one of these, I would love to know.
Pirelli tires - 0 miles
