  3. I had a choice between a $200 option for a radio + antenna ...... or make a $200 car payment ...... I opted for the car payment. It didn't take but 5 minutes to realize I actually didn't want a radio, because now I had that huge storage area for all the stuff that wouldn't fit into the glovebox. Cheers, Carl

  9. A couple of decades ago that line somehow got abraded and developed a pinhole leak. So I made my own using the original fittings, a length of steel brake line, and some JB Weld to secure the fittings into the line. No problems since. I didn't like the way the original plastic line was routed "way out in space" where it could be hit, so I bent the tubing to get it tucked-in close to the KF and out of the way. Here's a picture I just found in my archives ..... Cheers, Carl
  10. I feel deprived ...... my tii left the assembly line without one. Cheers, Carl
