  1. I used it to redo my gas tank. Worked great.
  2. Compare the passenger side to the drivers side. I'm a bit dyslexic when it comes to this kind of stuff, so I always compare what i know is right to what is wrong and copy the settings/arrangement. Even a picture in front of me helps.
  3. Check this out. Scroll down for the sunvisor picture.
  4. You mean he's not taking it out too? That's the easy part.
  5. $400 seems like a decent price to install both windshields. I did mine myself with an engineer son and it's not a job I want to do again, although I would if i had to. Afterwards, I applied a bead of silicone underneath the circumference of the rubber seal. This wasn't easy and was messy. If I were to do it again, I'd tape the glass and body with painters tape to make that cleanup easier. I have no leaks.
  6. Mine is doing the same thing...so aggravating.
  7. I used OEM per Steve at Blunt's suggestion and I dare say it was one of the most difficult jobs I did on the car, along with... freeing up the rear brake adjusters removing an e-brake cable removing the right rear carrier bushing installing the windshield lock strips... ...well I guess there were a few tough jobs looking back.
  8. Here's the thing about getting old: it beats the alternative.
  9. I NEVER get speeding tickets. NEVER. I always use cruise control on my modern cars on the highways, and know what the troopers will tolerate. In the last 12 months, being stuck locally at home, I've gotten two tickets. Both times I was driving old cars and both times I was in a nearby residential neighborhood. 53 in a 30 (going downhill mind you) and 62 in a 45. One of them I got a mile from my house, the other I got 3 miles from home. Did I break the law? Absolutely. Was I being irresponsible? Hardly. These are local roads I've been driving for over 40 years and know like the back of my hands. These town cops were just enforcing speed limits nobody follows. Of course I went to court and beat them both or got a light/no point fine. So frustrating.
  10. Ha! Check my signature. Same as yours.
  11. There has been acres of discussion about BHCC on Pelican Parts. The conclusion is they get a ton of cars. Some are ok and decent finds, most are rusty heaps that look just ok. The upshot is that if you find something you like at a decent price, make sure you do your due diligence 10 times over. (if you're looking for a car, mine is available an already completed)
