Re: Wheeler Dealers 21.1

Just received my TV guide (remember those ;) ) and this weeks Wheeler dealers features a 1972 'survivor' car. Remember to set your VCR to record it

Re: Hood liner

I bought the dynamat stuff. Went on no problem. Noise was never an issue and I like the sound of the engine, also helps to hear it if there's something wrong. Just figured the liner served some purpose and didn't want to change too much. Fwiw go with black if it's an option. The silver/aluminum is t...

Hood liner

Pulled sagging hood liner off my 82 with intention to glue back up but.... https://i.imgur.com/05HqsvC.jpg Question is what should I replace it with? I'm all for originality but i'd bet they've come up with better materials in last 38 years. Dont see replacement at AR either. Thanks in advance Kevin

Re: Gauge disassembly

Hey Brad, I bought these with intention to swap but kept my originals. If you need them for any bits they're yours. I picked up for almost nothing but don't want to throw away. lmk

Re: Rear seat foam rust

Thanks for suggestions. It's no show car and likely never will be,which i prefer. Every rear seat i've found is in the same or worse shape and so figure might as well save money for more important fixes. At least now I can add seat refurbishment and upholstery to my resume

Rear seat foam rust

So removed rear seats and found frames rusted. Not garbage but not good. Sanded, used rust conversion, and enamel painted. The seat foam has decent amount of rust deposits embedded into foam. Ive tried to scrape out but it's an arduous pain and takes off too much foam. I've sprayed the rust/foam par...

Re: gas leak

Found this Saturday, on Sunday we got nice April snowstorm of 3 inches :roll: So checked again yesterday and looks like might be the clamp. I removed everything and the fuel came out clean from filter. I blew air thru it and sprayed easily with no restriction. Reconnected everything and really crank...

Re: Rear “seat” upholstery question

Those are mounting tabs. On my 82 the tabs have holes which are then screwed into the back metal of car. You should already have the holes there if you look closely. They hold the rear seat in place

Re: Down the rabbit hole

The wires loop off screen to the right and attach to wiring harness then loop back into grommet at center of pic. Under car looks like one wire goes to the fuel pump. I don't know why but it has never been connected as long as I've owned car, 3+ years
