Hey Kim - for sure this will work ! Everything what you did before works great. So why should this fail ???

I am really curious if you will bring this unique beauty on the street...someday

Cheers
Marc
Thanks for the comments! I will try to have it all done by spring time!
Its one year later than planned but i had so much work last year, And i have made a lot of things much more complex than i had planned in the beginning Smiler
Its going to be interesting to see how different it is from my other Pantera

WOW, I do like the way you reversed the engine management components/compartment to the front. Very clever and so much better for access. Maybe others have done it, but I hadn't seen it before. That's a winter project idea. I hope you don't mind being copied. 

Hi Tom

Reason i put pictures  of my build here is just for that ! To help other with there projects.  Always when i plan some idea i scroll thru the post here to look for some good solutions. And  the other thing , if something is not right i hope somebody tells me that!

You have to share info on forums like this to make them useful for all.

Great work, Kim!

(Oops!  Sorry about my confusion. You guys do such awesome work out there it’s hard to believe there so many great projects going on. )

Outstanding Kim... Are you really willing to drive this beauty on the streets when it's ready for road? 

Regards Marc 

 

It appears you follow the same method I do. The project isn't done until every tool you have in your toolbox has been removed.

Its ok thanks Rocky

Marcf thanks! Yes i am going to use it for street and track its made to be driven!

Husker yes and some new tools are always nice

FWIW, the former president of the German Pantera Club had a BMW V-8 in his Pantera, back in the '80s. It may have been carbureted; he's passed on now.

Here are a few videos...

That's a lovely sound, almost as sweet as the Cleveland Symphony! 

Absolutely outstanding work and many great ideas to pass on to the rest of us. Thank you for sharing. Maybe this Pantera should have a glass window in the trunk lid. You might be just the person to make it work.

Kim,

you always make my day when you share the next level with a bunch of photos with us.

What an outstanding work. Hope you will also share a soundfile from the 'Awakening of the beast'

Cheers

Thanks for the nice comments ! Fuel pump is Bosch 044. filter is just some random i found at local autoshop that was right size.

Marc soon

Kim,

Beautiful work! I especially like the rounded wheel flares. Much more contemporary. I would do my car the same way if I had your talent.

IMG-20190202-WA0000Resized_20190124_165331I had some trouble to get the tachometer to work ! I thought it was the new engine management system that talked a different language than the tach but then i gave it to a friend that is a guru on electronics to test it! and he found this!!!? But he said its no problem to fix it   It must have been a lot of smoke and smell when that happened !

Now i got the tachometer fixed!  But the needle still did not move! So here is a clever solution i got from the guy that sold me the engine management system that i think will work on other systems to and perhaps on the Msd.

It is just a ordinary relay with a small fix! You just put it in parallel between the +12v cable and the signal cable to tach

20190221_120724   The pieces on the paper i removed from the relay other wise they move every time with the spark signal  and are noisy!

+12v cable to tach is first connected to number 86 on relay and then to tach.

Signal cable to tach is first connected to number 85 on relay and then to tach.

It is a very simple way to get an volt peak to get the tach needle to trigger!

I think the Msd box for tach is just the same in a nicer package

Looks amazing. Sounds even better. You must be happy to be outside at last. All you need is sunshine  

is that a mono wiper I see? Did I miss the details on this? What are you using for motor, arm and blade? 

Kim - you made my day !!!

What a Beast - its 'above beyond'

And the spitting flame is a extra on top. What a beauty. Enjoy it - you have well deserve it

Cheers Marc

Congratulations!  This is one of my favorite builds so far. Very happy for you. 

 

When do you start on mine?

I'm as impressed as the rest of the folks, and glad you are having such fun building this car and showing it along the way. 

 

Tank you all

David wiper motor and arm is from a boat ! very compact so it fits in the small space below windscreen

Kjeld color is from BMW i8 individual line code N42 lava orange

Tajon how about next Monday

Okay now this build tread has reach the end

The car is now completed and i got it registered last Friday and on Sunday me and my son was on the first road trip thru the archipelago here in western Finland!

 I have from the start with this project  tried to get the car as modern and comfortable to drive as possible and it came out better than i could expect!

My other Pantera is much more original in many ways but with much stronger engine and it is very brutal to drive but i really like it

But this new one i am going to use on all longer trips ! The brakes and overall handling and quietness inside is almost like a brand new car!

Here is picture from first trip

So thank you all for the nice comments and help this last 2 years

And a special thanks to Marc and Simon for the help with the papers!!!

Now i am going to drive and enjoy my cars this summer!

I am not on the forums as frequently anymore and I completely missed the finishing of this car. My hat off to you. The finished product is incredible and sounds glorious! Your attention to detail is inspiring.

I'm so glad to see this project inspire others, it's always nice to see someone having fun with a Pantera, opposed to being scared by keeping it so stock that it remains an under-driven garage queen. This car takes everything to the extreme but wow what a great result.
