  1. Passing it forward. Last year I met a very enthusiastic couple from Coronado, CA at a Farmer's Market, who introduced themselves when they saw my 2002. They were so nice and I can't remember their names, but they sent me this video and picture of a simple fix to the refueling spills we all get with modern fuel pumps and our vintage gasoline tank spouts. Not sure if it has been discussed here, but it works like a charm. Just need a foot long piece of marine fuel line available at your local West Marine store, size is around 2" or 2 1/2" or 2 1/4". Very inexpensive. No spills. Here's their video and photo. Enjoy IMG_0741.MOV.mov
  2. That will work. I also used AAA and they were great. they just need to see those vin numbers you describe above to make sure it matches the title. Mine is a 73 with a weber carburetor that wouldn't have passed smog inspection and test if it wasn't exempt by the year i bought it, 2018.
  3. Angry skies over San Diego.
  4. Bilstein UK has them online for sale. Just got the front ones 1 week ago from them. Not sure why they are not available in the states yet. Yes, HD 34-000236, $167 ea plus shipping to US Front Bilstein B6 - Sport Shock Absorber - 34-000236 - Bilstein-Shocks.co.uk.webloc
  5. Yes, it's Bilstein UK. They arrived in original packaging, new and with correct model number and address from Bilstein Uk. took about 2 weeks to arrive. one was opened at customs to inspect. Best of luck, im sure it will be ok

  7. Bilstein.co.uk has the front Heavy duty shocks in stock. I just received them. Here's the link:Front Bilstein B6 - Sport Shock Absorber - 34-000236 - Bilstein-Shocks.co.uk.webloc
  8. I called Bilstein about the availability of HD shocks back in January of this year and they said they were not discontinued, and that they would be available again this April. Well, April has passed and they still do not show on the websites of our top vendors (Blunttech, Roger's, etc.). Maybe they are trickling in, but worth calling Blunt and hear what he knows.
  9. For the euro buckets, saw a recent post with this title and I am wondering if they are specific for right or left. Perhaps its the reason why i'm having difficulty getting the correct pattern on the road. Maybe i installed them crossed. They are new euro Hella buckets. The adjustments for right or left movement are all the way adjusted and still the light pattern is not on center. I thought of removing them and placing some spacers on the actual fasteners that secure them to the body of car, but have been careful not to re-injure a recent herniated disc. Also thought perhaps the car had a front end collision in its past and it is not entirely symmetrical up front. I bought the car in 2018 and was 90% restored at the time. 1973 model. Thanks in advance
  10. Wait, what? Is that for the euro buckets? I didn't know they were specific for right or left. Perhaps its the reason why i'm having difficulty getting the correct pattern on the road. Maybe i installed them crossed. They are new euro Hella buckets.
