Re: Temporary paint?

Carl, I heard the Rustoleum is very difficult to sand off once cured, do you know if that is true?

Thank for the suggestions, both of you.

Temporary paint?

OK, so I have a Fiat that was sanded down to bare metal and then painted with primer. I just got done with most of the rust repair and now it's time for bodywork. That will take a while, but in the meanwhile I'd like to take the car on a weekend trip. Is there some paint I can paint it with (think s...

Upholstery is available from Italy, but it's pricy. I will be adding one to our upholstery order sometime for mine, but we only order once a year.

But what about crankshaft flywheel bolts? Didn't Fiat go to the 12mm bolts in 1975? The '73 1592 and the '74 1756cc still used the 10mm flywheel bolts, but I thought this changed in '75?
I think, but not sure, that the 12mm flywheel bolts came in late 1978 model year.

--Note the photo attached is a comparison of the early(1974) and late ('75-78) 1756cc crankshafts.
The division was not in 1974/75, but in the middle of the 1977 model year. That is when the nose of the crank, crank timing belt gear and crank pulley all changed.

Re: Taking glass out of door mirror?

Usually the glass is being pushed back by a spring. It's easier to undo the plastic if you push down on the glass some.
