    I got one from Walmart for about $25. It replaced my previous one from 1988(!). Right now, it's sitting under the cargo net, but it did come with a mounting bracket; not sure if
    I should try and...

    Clean the connectors to the power mirrors. This was the cause of my inability to adjust in all the directions.

    True enough, but it's hard to get any good commentary about past prices from the old timers beyond get-off-my-lawn grumblings about how they are "too expensive" and the cost of a moon pie back in the...

    What is the cost for such sorcery?

    First binnacle has a very small crack; almost not enough to worry about, but seems like something I ought to be fix easily. Second one has major cracks in it,...

    I have a metal one still in its bag with instructions that came with parts for 1005. I need to check what the situation is with what's fitted. Certainly the passenger side door is a very poor fit...

    Looks like I was responsible for this thread, and some of the replies too. It's true that you can get a super nice car for $50K, although there's plenty in the 40-50 range. I think the 40K car...

    I'm not at my computer, so I'll post pictures this weekend. The PO was originally from Ohio. He said there (and certainly in PA where I live) cars rust from the bottom up. In Hawaii, from the top...

    There's some dents in the hood, and I think some of the panels actually have some rust. The fit of the passenger door is very poor. The car was in Hawaii since original sale, so just on 40 years,...

    This advice is probably too late for you - I'm betting you buy that car. But for anyone else, I recommend going to see as many cars as possible, *especially* if you know they aren't suitable, so you...

    1005 Restoration

    1005 arrived yesterday from Hawaii. It runs and drives (the 3 miles from the pickup anyway), but has numerous issues. Fortunately, the PO did the big spend on failure items, so what remains is...

    Car arrived today. I'll go into detail another time, but definitely watch how much fuel is in the car. For ship transport, the tank had to be emptied below 1/4 of a
    tank. I think it ended up even...

    My expectation is that JB Weld was the correct choice. Fiberglass is useful material, but I'm not sure I'd trust it for "sharp" impact situations like the striker.

    Yes, there are splines, but the nut also needs to be tightened enough to hold it down correctly. You could always just unbolt and remove it for now.

    At the other end of the scale, although the project car "runs, drives, stops", it has clear electrical issues, no A/C and who knows what else wrong. Driving it more than a few miles would be foolish...

    Turns out that when I replaced the PCB I only did the nuts finger tight and many had wiggled loose. Tightened better and all working.

    I have a similiarish problem. My tach is non-responsive, but sometimes it starts working with a tap. This started after last time I removed it to retrieve an LED I dropped inside it (don't do this). ...

    And to confuse matters, I cleaned out my hamster cage, and now the system moves the air around so much better that often the A/C is too much, so I just use the fan.
