    My VIN:    10270

    I (mis)use my rivet nut tool more often than I expected.

    Almost any time I take something apart that requires two wrenches I try to put a rivet nut in:
    -Fuel filter
    -AC dryer
    -Coil resistor mount
    -Probably more I'm forgetting

    My VIN:    Formerly 10372, currently 4728

    That look NIIIIICE!
    VIN 4728 is on standby to have its new exhaust installed, and has lost priority to a kitchen/living room renovation & 60-80 hour work weeks.

    If you're not a fastener purist, most trim panels I replace the factory screws with M5-0.8 nylon screws (15 mm length). You can get a big box for pretty cheap and they'll never seize up on you.

    You just have to push the panels together before tightening as nylon won't draw two piece together well.

Put all the new parts in and she works again! Next up is stereo. Parts on deck include lower rocker clips and rocker fixin next
    Where did you score NOS grey center caps? Those seem pretty hard to come by. Kudos for switching to dark rims, btw. So many people dislike them, but I think they make the cars look even more exotic. Good for you for reverting back to 235s, too.

    Thanks I love the look of the early cars . I believe my car originally had dark facias and rims it was just so sun bleached being a southern car they were faded. According to the vin could go either way. Rims are definatly early thin cast style though. I had to go dark lol. I plan on having fascias painted soon dark as well. As far as the caps I got them from Rob Grady. And as far as the 235s I just feel it's totally 80s and had to do it right lol

    My cousin did a fenominal job on the ol sewing machine . Left me a bunch of extra material to trim on my own .


    On a side not I echo everyone else complaints with the CV axles . My rebuilt ones already popped a boot . I hate the design of the flange with no lip .
