Just a suggestion... Something to consider for a fund raiser would be what my dad's local automotive association did to raise funds. They would sell 300 tickets for $100 a piece. Grand prize was $10k and then 4 other top prizes. They banked 15k and gave away 15k. They wanted something simple. They sold out every year when they did it. I bought a ticket every year. A 1 in 300 odds

Joel, I used the glue system when I worked in a shop years ago. The car needed to still have the the OEM paint and in good shape. If it was a repaint it would normally pull the paint off. We used it several times and then found it simpler to use the tools from behind the panel or hire a service.

Thanks to Al and Matt my front turn signals work now. Not sure which remedy did it since I did both before trying. Now I have to figure out why the dome light won't work now... Thanks Al and Matt!!

I still can't get my left front running light to glow brighter. Here's what I've done so far. After trying everything above and not working I bought a new housing from Clark's. New Bulb. New pig tail installed. Right side running and turn signal works fine. Headlights work. Tried a complete front wiring harness from a Corsa I parted out and got the same results. Wh

I’m waiting to see if the headlight I shipped to Russia makes it.

Thanks! Forgot all about my seldom used gun cleaning kit. Time to break it out and clean some sockets!

I'm having the same problem on my left front on my 65 Monza. I'm guessing it's because the socket itself is rusty. The PO put a plastic socket in through the front to make it work. I ordered a new pig tail from Clark's. Is there a way to clean the rust out or do I need to buy another housing? Thanks!

I asked Matt to put a thread for people with parts and tools to sell. I'll be reading a thread and have no idea someone sold something. Just recently saw azdave has the clear lens. For some reason, no one responded to the thread.... Except Matt who posted what he sells. Would be nice if there was an updated thread with who sold what. Thanks,

Mike, I went with Clark’s Ultimate Exhaust. I don’t use the baffles and it sounds GREAT! I get a lot of compliments and there’s no logs needed.

I have Lon's 90 durometer front and rear. I used a flat piece of steel when pressing them in. Did it per the instructions of regular bushing just with the steel piece in between the press and bushing.

I'm not retired, have years to go before I do. Sell mostly rare and obsolete Mercedes parts on eBay on the side of working a full time job working with software. Briefly autocross a MB as well as a show car. Divorce changed all that. A Mercedes instructor with a dozen or more Corvair's convinced me to switch. I've had mine 3 years now. I also enjoy coin collecting and shoot

Dave, I used POR-15 on sandblasted parts two years ago. After blasting I did use their metal prep and followed the directions, including rinsing with water and letting them air dry. 2 years later it still looks great. I did not use a topcoat since it was the front suspension. Did the same on the rear suspension this past winter and no issue their either. Also my car is a driver except fo

With that much horsepower are airbags really going to do much? Didn't the Porsche GT Paul Walker died in have all that? Kevin's rich and they want a piece of it. I really doubt one of my passengers would be suing me.

Sorry Al, Like I said not trying to offend anyone. And I don't have a problem with the price if I did want one. As for others selling to me.... already have that problem. I post very little in the last three years, so I chalk it up to the 'new guy' or not been around 20+ years. You've been nice to me and full of good info when I've pm'd you, so wasn't

Al, I'm not looking for a box, I just wanted to get rid of the elephant in the room. I wanted to see the word 'substantial' defined so the buyers could get right to the point. Hopefully everyone is understanding. Doug
