  1. But they look so good installed! (guy at a local euro meet) (I wish it was mine!) Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  2. I'm glad you didn't get hurt. My wife's friends husband died from a car falling on him while working under it. After I put a car on jack stands I shake, rock and snatch the car every which way for a least a couple minutes before I get under it. Im not about to have my hobby kill me...

  3. Does yours have a solenoid on the side? I tripped a fuse on my car causing me to lose power to the carb (38/38). It took me a minute to chase that one down... Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  4. I'll take them Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  5. +1 for goliners on ebay. I enjoyed installing it also. It really wasn't that bad. There are so many good write ups and videos it takes all the guess work out of the project. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Plastic welder

    It actually was a lot of fun! Mine only came with black plastic filler rod but apparently they are supposed to come with green, red and white also. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    This is what it looked like before I sanded it smooth... Still not too terrible. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  8. I'm in the same boat as you. Craigslist has been a massive part of my life since about 03-04. Unfortunately it really hasn't been very good for the last few years with having to weed through the spam and scams but at least it was there. It has dropped off significantly since they started charging to post a car. I hate Facebook to the core but I just ended up signing up my name away to the devil just so I can use the market place which in my opinion is where all those lost sellers have gone. I hope whatever service you create really takes off. Let me know when its up and I'll happily try it out. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Plastic welder

    I recently tried out a cheap plastic welder I picked up from harbor freight for only $12 and I was pretty happy with the results so I figured I would pass on the recommendation. Some of the reviews I read said that it worked well repairing cracked dashes. I wish i bought this thing a long time ago! Very satisfying! They had a couple nicer ones that i imagine would provide better results. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  10. There's a car for sale locally for $32k that looks like it has a the same/ similar sunroof. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. Now I see. Wow. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  12. No... [emoji17] Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  13. I would install fresh axle boots while you have them off. And don't do like I did and accidentally assemble the axles with the o2 shafts and have to do them over again... It was late... Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  14. I sure am glad we're friends nowadays [emoji16]. Your theory seems to be very accurate if not spot on. Just went down to the garage (stinks like gas in there, pregnant wife not happy) and it looks like gas has definitely been flooding into the manifold. Looked at what I now know is the diverter valve and it turns out the fuel return line is kinked. I'm thinking it happened when I pulled the battery a few weeks ago to make swapping the master cylinder a little easier. So if I unkink that line should cure the issue? Or at least partially remedy it? All fuel lines are new and sender spacer and clamps are good. Proud to say "no gas smell in the trunk". Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  15. For the last month or so the o2 has been getting harder and harder to start after being driven then parked for an hour. Im starting to get tired of it so decided to pop the hood and have a look around. What I noticed is that the fuel is draining back into the tank within about a minute of shutting the car off and there are a ton of air bubbles in the fuel filter so my first thought Is a tear in the fuel pump diaphragm. It looks like the bubbles are coming from the pump side. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
