Re: "The Parts Car"

That poor cat is dead. Harvest what organs you can from it and find something solid to start your build. Otherwise, your going to need a bigger trash can.

Re: CopyCatVert

Well, what do you think? I was going to wait until spring to put these on, but I had to replace one of the tires anyway. One down, three to go.

Re: Toggle switch function....

It was for the opera lights on the sail panels in the back seat. I re-wired mine to actually turn on the instrument (panel) lights on the dash when my dimmer switch died. Makes more sense to me that way.

Re: Cranks but no start !

Is your car an XR7? If so, it could be the dreaded tachometer issue.

Re: Rollover Protection System

Yorgie, the Shelby style bars are the only devices that look aesthetic enough to consider, but they are may from “integral skin urethane.” Carroll Shelby would surely be astonished to see a plastic strip masquerading as a safety device. I’m surprised they aren’t liable for accidents regardless of w...

Re: AM radio light bulb replacement

If memory serves me, the light bulb socket just clips into the top of the radio. It's easy to get at from the glove box if you remove the liner.

Re: Clock lights are pulsating. ..

Could pulsed +5v current from your IVR (instrument voltage regulator) somehow be getting to the clock lights? How quickly do the lights pulse? Try putting a volt meter on the positive side of one of your gauges (or the output side of your IVR) and see if the needle pulses in sync with the clock ligh...

Re: Daily driver Eliminator - am I crazy?

Guys spend $45-$50K on new trucks and drive those year round. To me, that's crazy. I say drive what you love driving. I've logged over 80,000 on my 68 xr7 since 2004.

Re: Rollover Protection System

The repop shelby style bars that I've seen have all been mounted into a section of tubing bolted to the upper part of the inner rear quarter panel just ahead of the window crank using sheet metal screws. That's not going to do much in an accident, but I imagine it would be easy enough to extend the ...

Re: Dash pad care

I had a client years back who worked as a detailer for auto dealerships and he said the "trade secret" for vinyl was that trans-medic stuff that supposedly reconditions the o-ring seals in transmissions and power steering systems.
