  1. Hi John! It wasn't Although when I bought the car in 2016 it had just been replaced with a used unit.
  2. Hi all! Just got my '73 back from E&E Restoration in Broadway VA. I've noticed a knocking / clunking sound in the rear when turning at low speeds and a shrill whine at low RPM. Does anyone know a good mechanic in the area DMV area? Thanks in advance!
  3. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone had a comprehensive list of all the seals needed on an 02 sedan? I was planing to order them from Walloth & Nesch, but I want to make sure I got them all. Also, has anyone used the URO seals available domestically? I've seen mixed reviews, but they sure are much cheaper. Thanks, Stew
  4. Fantastic Ideas both, I'm going to try the hairdryer idea as soon as i get the car back from the upholstery shop. If I can't make it work, I'll go with the vent holes. Thanks much!
  5. Thanks everyone for the replies. Losing the defrost is probably the thing that worries me most. I would happily rebuild the heater box, but it really is a shambles.
  6. I didn't know this could even be done. Does it require metal cutting?
  7. Hi all, I am about to receive my '73 02 back from the body shop. It has been welded, POR15ed, rhino-lined, and painted. My vision for the car is a light, tight, weekend driver when the weather is nice. I am attempting to keep it as spartan as possible. Before it goes to the upholstery shop I would like to solve a nagging hangup. I have decided to remove the heater box permenately . I know that this sort of talk tends to illicit gasps of horror from people, but I really don't plan to drive it when its cold out and my heating system is TRASHED. Anyway, my question..what is the best way to plug up the hole where the box sits and how should I redirect the plumbing for the cooling system? I assume I will need to run less coolant? Thanks, Kyle
  8. Jerry! BINGO! You nailed it! I pulled the heater box today and found the source of all of my troubles...
  9. Thanks Mike, I have heard wonderful things about the POR 15 products. May be a place for them here shortly.
  10. Good evening! So i've been scraping and heat gunning and going to try dry ice on the rear floor pans tomorrow. Picked up some stripping discs and such today, not much to report. still working!
  11. Okay so never mind, I was thinking it might take a while if i had to do it with a drill! Angle grinder it is then! Can't wait for tomorrow!
  12. Thanks for the replies! I have finished the majority of the scraping in the front left and right floor pans. Unfortunately, I've discovered a pretty nasty cut of rust in the middle of the drivers side. Seems to be right under the fuel line... The source of the leak appears to be from atop the trans tunnel where the right plug is missing. Good save Toby! I definitely was about to start angle grinding tomorrow! I will be drill stripping instead now! What do we think about this left floor pan and pedal box? seems that we've got a major defect here?? Best, Stew
  13. Question, before I start using the heat gun around these hoses which appear to both have something to do with the gas tank, what sort of precautions should I be tanking? Can I disconnect them for now? What do they go to? Seems like the fuel line is all that should be coming from the tank? Stew Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks very much for all the interest and helpful replies! I will be spending the rest of the day scraping and grinding. Will take some pictures of the car and post tonight! Stew
