I can't seem to say no to these strays. This one is a '73 CL350. Best thing I can say about it is that it is all there and the exhaust is solid. However, right now it is only running on one cylinder....

75/6 engine emblem came unglued

Was thinking of using double sided auto moulding tape to reinstall. Will it hold up to the engine heat? Looks like it was previously held on by contact cement.

I have a pair of those, but don't think they are going to hold up much better than regular jeans. Instead of wearing through after 20 feet of sliding they may last another 10 feet.
