Something else to add to my mix/mash of parts... Those are 95-96 KYB strut housings that I made into Koni struts... I'm going to check tonight to see if the lower spring seat is in the same spot on the older 90 strut... That would change the orientation of the top coil when installed. Although it still doesnt explain how a 90 Eibach spring fit fine but differed from a 90 Canuck and Stocker... WEIRD... As you can see it's still bugging me but not enough to pull the struts out again.

Slow and steady progress on the Indy... The dash I acquired from Geoff and his GT that he parted out was in much better shape, but as almost all of these dashes are it was lifting from the reinforcement base around the defroster vent and such. There is only one small crack in it that has been previously repaired so that's where it is much better than what I had. I've spent the last few days gluing and bracing the dash to hold those lifted parts down... So far so good using "Amazing GOOP" takes a while to dry but holds pretty good in the end. I hope to be installing the dash at the end of this week and have the car back to a running state so I can drive it some and make sure nothing else is wrong with it. I also purchased some cool white LED dash lights. It will be interesting to see how these change the illumination properties of the Digi Dash.


From the Heater Core swap... Should have just waited till the dash was out... Oh well.

I too used Goop on my 88 dash.
I tired 3M headliner adhesive but it didn't hold.
I hope the Goop holds long term. I have no cracks,,,yet.
I hope using a sun shield in the windshield when parked helps.
My vinyl is soft but has shrunk.
I used Goop on my console lid and door arm rests and so far it's holding.
