  1. Unfortunately already gone to the scrapper already. Talked to him on Monday a couple of hours after he sent me the pics, but by then he had them already hauled away and was hoping to head south yesterday(Tuesday) and save them. Apparently to many flakes calling and not showing up.
  2. traps with peanut butter on the rails or a couple other areas under the hood that have enough room for the arm to swing.
  3. You should be able to find plenty of comps, right now, there are three to start with on the BMW CCA to start, the bay should have some too, and as mentioned earlier NADA and Hagerty as well. You should be able to put in a good fight with them as we know that they'll try to low ball you big time. In any case you should be able to buy it back in the end; ballpark numbers are usually at 10% of value. As far as getting it back on the road, You'd be surprised how much can be pulled back with a good frame machine and a talented well experienced + reputable technician. Those quarter panel wrinkles can be massaged pretty well w/o much body work. Keep us posted. Best of luck!
  4. Quickjack is still around and depending on your source, a 3500 lb capacity retails somewhere around $900 and $1300 for a 5k lb one. Indeed you can pick up, and seen several, a decent 2 post for around $1500. BendPak has a 10k lb 2 post lift that depending on your source lists for around $2800 and their 9K 4 post for around the same ( with free shipping). There are also similar reliable versions offered for around the same $$$. So yes, a no brainer if you have the height in your shop. Also, Champ offers a hydraulic side/end lift that retails for about $450; but it is all manual power as in an engine hoist.
  5. Found this pic a few days ago, so since we're on the subject I thought posting it as it seems she may be having some hot cabin issues
  6. I'd agree mostly with Paul; with the valve on the inlet you'd restrict the flow into the core and in a small sort of way preventing the heat sink effect of the heater core. Although minimal, we're talking hot coolant that would radiate/induct through the rest of the system onto the core in the cabin. Also perhaps placed in that location for maintenance purposes when replacing the core or ????. One of those interesting questions to be asked of the designers of the system along with other features that we wonder about.
  7. Speaking of taps.......Beer anyone. On those with buttons, thinking 007
  8. Indeed, pretty awesome. Good to know that the P.O. had a big heart and a knowledge of sentimental value and did not wring your wallet out. Hopefully Karma will equally play his way.
  9. Nate too funny you posted this. In cleaning the 73 I got a little over a month ago I noticed that the rear portion of the right fender was a graft; in it i have four colors; but you got me on total colors. Maybe I'll find more when it gets a new fresh coat of paint in the future.
  10. Oooopppsss, sorry. Meant to say clutch of course; just a momentary lapse of reason and a short of the synapses. Yes the alignment tool and grease packet are also included.
  11. Got it from Rock Auto this time as the order I placed Autohaus AZ was cancelled the next day since they did not have stock available (theirs was actually a couple $$ less since shipping was free). SInce you're on the East coast, the Rock might be a quicker delivery option.
  12. Just picked up a Sachs 228mm kit for $210 shipped, Includes the flywheel, clutch + the throw out and pilot bearings, decent guibos are running around $30, If needed your clutch master or slave are in the mid $60s and the flywheel resurf depends on the state of your current one. Of course, shops will charge you book time and not their actual time (maybe 4-5 hours for an experienced mech). In reality a fairly simple job that weighs on how hard it is to remove those rusty nuts and bolts. It's something you can tackle over a weekend as a first timer if you have the goodies that Nathan mentioned and a manual to follow. It's never too late to plunge into getting your fingers greasy for a fairly easy job; if you have a friend to help or just moral support and to help wiggle that tranny back in it also helps reduce the outburst of colorful metaphors. :-)
