Interceptors Celeste(LC) 1980

Hi
I recently required this LC from Holland(I live in Denmark) and starting on renovations slowly.
Im neither an expert mechanic or rich, so it will go in the pace I can manage.
Mostly I just want it to be as standard as im able.

Also im having some problems finding parts, so if any have any insight on where to get, throw me a PM.

And always start small.

Started on maintenance and as I was swapping airfilter I fould it soaked in oil.
So figured might as well clean it all up.

I gave it some black rust paint(Hammerite).

Not you, edit function is not available to us general members.
Looking good though - one small clean up like that will make the engine bay look so much better

Did the rockercover as well. A lot of oily dirt on that one, hard to get of, ended using ultrasound to clean it.
I also think I found a place to buy new shocks, seems they have both for front and rear and they have radiators as well.

Well, here is the rockercover.
