Clear Upper Filler Panel

For a freshly painted INDY. NOS would be great so it matches the rest. I'm just saying that the car looks new, so the best is appreciated. Ebay is too far in between and I tire of waiting. Do you have any without cracks? I'll even sand it down and polish it out. I'll delaminate and overhaul it. I ju...

Re: Berettafest 2017 proposal South Haven MI

My vote this year is looking for an autocross track. I want to see my car rip through corners risking breaking another steering bearing. I'm serious. I don't think my car will break when pushed. It just breaks for stupid reasons, unrelated to anything!

Re: How To: Painting Bare Aluminum Wheels

Nope, giving credit where its due, Brian did help MUCHO. I also told him it'd be a few hours the day of painting the entire car not realizing that its been a while since I painted an entire car, and forgot about all the parts that we removed for painting, like mirrors, all gfx pieces, .... about 27 ...

The digital cam apparently didn't wake up this morning. If I can get a sharper pic, I'll post it.

Re: How To: Painting Bare Aluminum Wheels

You can do it! The largest investment is the paint gun. The more expensive gun, the bigger spray pattern it has. Best guns will spray 18", and the stuff I have in my garage does 6-8". Wheels can be sprayed with a small gun. Maybe they are cheaper. I don't use HVLP. I like my 40psi at the t...

Yellow3800 works in MO

Guess who is working in Saint Louis? Thats right, yellow3800, aka andy, in first person, me. Who is near Saint Louis? While the 3800 will stay in TN, I do own multiple berettas, because I'm a fellow nut, and will have my 89gt that just keeps going like an energizer battery with me. Lets work on some...

Re: Coolant sensor reads low

No not a test. I picked up a basket case car that had problems... a beretta rescue from a field actually. Problems started from unplugging the IAC, TPS, AND/or OXY, and the computer not caring. Imagine that one! no ses lights for a change! It just didn't show the ses light after running/driving for ...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Too much to comment on here on the work, so I'll pull out one thing: the coating of the inside of the nicely-coated subframe rails. Coat them with boiled linseed oil. Don't worry, I think it comes pre-boiled, from your local hardware store. source: the inside of wing struts on airplanes are coated w...

Re: Coolant sensor reads low

thermostat stuck partially open. This explains why it behaved quite normally, though read low. Its a foreign car to me and 3 other gauges were acting funny from other bad sensors. The car has multiple problems. The new thermostat, a 195F from advance brings up the gauge to 4 bars, though I did see i...

Re: Coolant sensor reads low

nice one Cliff. it is digital. You have graduated from a fountain of knowledge to a mountain of knowledge! Can't put anything past you. Like in the first post, it is capable of the range on the gauge by applying heat to the sensor, key on, eng. off, and watching it climb. Otherwise, I'd not put it p...

Coolant sensor reads low

Has anyone put too much goo on a coolant temp sensor when installing it and got a low reading [like a 1/16" gauge needle rise] at normal operating temp? I have 5 sensors in my parts bin and have tried TWO of them already and in the car, they read low like this. 3.1 v6 is the engine, 1990, Manua...
