Re: New Owner Needs Assistance

Hi Parker:
Tried to reply earlier but my post did not get on. I am presently working on a D40 and into my second year. I am keeping a blog of my project at www.jimmys-durant.com that will give you an idea of how it is going. I thought at the time of buying it that it would need engine rebuild and drive train work but they are really simple and solid and it is running fine. I have had some problems finding parts but a little creativity can get you through. I am not worrying too much about authenticity as it will not be a judged vehicle. I went with a current muffler system and flexible water pipes and I have chosen gm and ford paints in colours that I prefer. I have gone to the DMAC sight for help on occasion and I have a manual from that sight but I did not see one for your car. It is probably similar as mine has a w5 engine and it can be downloaded from the DMAC sight. I would be happy to share any ideas or sources. jcmc_2@sympatico.ca Good luck with your project. Hope to hear from you,
Jim Cooke
