"I know you can get one from TA Motor here in Sweden. Its not cheap and shipping and customs will set you back an arm and a leg. BUT, you will get it. A NSS 653 is 4345 SEK = 500 USD, but you get 100USD back if sending back the defect part. Better…"

"Clean and reclamp the battery wires on both ends. Then jump the starter to see if it spins.  Get a remote starter for the safest way.  If it spins, see if the ignition switch is sending power to the starter."

"As Kevin said a faulty starter, but before you replace the starter replace the grounding wire. Most of the times its just faulty ground. If you replace also increase size of wire and put some copper paste to create good contact."

Sorry about your cousin. 45 years is not so much. People seems to die of cancer nowadays. I guess it will be the most common reason for deaths. 

Örnsköldsvik is a very beautiful town. And they used to have a great ice hockey team.

Take care my friend.

Original 64 Color sanded and buffed out

Posted by Norman Silverman on November 10, 2018 at 9:05pm 14 Comments

I finally got the car back from the body shop, where they color sanded and polished it out. I am literally blown away by the result! Now, it looks great from 2 feet but if you look REALLY CLOSE you can see that the paint is not as glossy as it should be, but Sothe end result is much better than what I started with. The interior is still original.
