Re: Auto seat back release

It was as stand alone option. I believe it cost $25.90

My understanding (I've been told, but never seen one in action) is that when you unlocked the door it would flip up the seat latch for your convenience.

Re: Eliminators on the Market (June 2012)

I like this car just the way it is as far as condition, patina. Swap out the trans for a 4sp in an afternoon and have a blast. I think I would be tempted to knock out some of the dents a bit, maybe get that back quarter smoothed out and painted just so it doesn't rust out. Get some seat skins, head...

Pontiac Ed wrote:I talked to the owner of the white one in Chicago. It needs some body repair, LH quarter is lightly hit over the wheelwell and there are rust bubbles on one of the doors. Might still be a good deal for the right buyer, but its not for me.
Thanks for the info Ed!

Re: 1970 Rear Suspension & Axle Restoration

Hey Steve, looks really good!

So basically as you get an area scraped clean you hit it with a coat of primer to keep it from surface rusting?
Are you using a paint gun, or just rattle canning it for now?

Do you plan on putting any sort of undercoating back on it?

Re: '69 Interior Project - Some Progress

So for the headliner, did you just mask it off good and then spray it with dye / paint? It looks pretty darn good to me, and I'm sure it was easier to "paint" it than it would be to remove / install a new one.
