All fluids will have to be changed, clutch hydraulics will have to be rebuilt. Carbs
will have to be rebuilt. Brakes are up and feel good but will be rebuilt because of age. Exhaust is correct
and appears to be okay. Under hood area is presentable and correct. Needs the mother of all details.

2001, 11 Sept., the car arrived at Tim Stanfords shop in Fort Lauderdale for
major service work.
As per Tim, as it arrived, no battery, air cleaner is off but with the car. As per Tim
the car was pickled properly. A very good unrestored car.
Paint has some cracking in the nose area. Chrome on front and rears bumpers has been
redone but only okay. Tires are XWXs but are old and cracking. Still has the original Pirelli heater hose
with the original clamps, but need to be replaced, of course.
2001, 24 Sept., as per call from Tim Stanford, they expect to have the
compression check completed and the car running and driving by this weekend. Will speak with him at the
end of the week to coordinate.
2001, 27 Sept., as per conversation with Tim Stanford, there was some corrosion
in the gas tanks, so the gas tanks have been boiled out, have come back, but now are at a fabricator having
part of the gas neck area and a few small problem areas repaired.
Once the fuel tanks are repaired they will go back to the test shop and be leak tested,
the fiberglass work will be repaired, and they will be ready to install.
The carburetors were removed from the car and boiled out, are being rebuilt, and were
less gummed up than expected.
The engine does spin freely. Not a problem. Once the carbs are on and the fuel tanks
are back in place it will be a driver. They hope to have the car done by the second week of October.
2001, 3 Oct., spoke with Tim. They have rebuilt the carburetors. They have
cleaned out the fuel tanks. The engine spins freely and runs well. Fuel tanks are now expected back later
this week, since some welding work needs to be done on the filler necks. Then the car will be ready to drive.
2001, 12 Oct. car runs and drives well, but as expected the brake system has to
be done through. Now expected to be completed end of Oct.
