Re: Help with 76 New Yorker

Rettax3, Are you suggesting my New Yorker is a HEAVY WEIGHT!!!!! ; ) She has the 440 and everything works the way it should including the chronometer. You bet! Real steel! I don't care much for plastic cars though, so from me it is a compliment. :wink: In my old Mopar, the only thing that DOESN'T w...

Re: Need parts

I'll try to snap some pics today. So you have intermittent wipers and rear defrost? I'm just getting over a cold too -I know how you feel there! I would rather deal with a shop that tried hard and did good work than a shop owned by a jerk that did great work but treated me like crap. Get her outta t...

Re: Need parts

Hey, Money Pit , glad you are still around! Sorry to hear your car got hit -there seems to be a lot of that going around lately. Makes me afraid to drive some of my nicer cars around... I almost got taken-out by a UPS driver the other day too. If you are repainting the whole car, the color of the do...

Re: The Z26 you all wanted to see

...White is the other hardest color to match, aside from maybe metallics. Just saying. :wink: It might be better to find a clean white Beretta than respraying yours, changing colors well on a car is a lot more expensive than just repainting to original -think about door-jambs, underside of the hood,...

Re: The Z26 you all wanted to see

Sounds like a good plan. They should be able to paint the hood separately, especially since it is black. On my Z-24, I replaced the fenders with steel Z-3 vented (like gills) ones. They came pre-primered, and I know how to sand for paint-prep. I asked three different places how much to spray two pri...

Re: The Z26 you all wanted to see

The hood is only temporary until I can get the good one fixed, or get this one repainted properly(whichever is cheaper). Glad to see the front-end stayed straight. I've seen some that got hit just enough to break some spot-welds and deform the sheet-metal of the 'frame'. My '92 G/A ('N' Body, but s...

Re: Help with 76 New Yorker

Custom upholstery shop will be your best shot. Not cheap, but if you want to keep it 'correct', that will be the best way. Nice thing about leather is that you don't really need to search for the right pattern, like fabric and even vinyl. So long as it is cut and stitched right, you should be good. ...

Re: 1995 Turbo'd 3500 Z

They look pretty sharp in there. How well do they move so far as recline, tilt, slide? Stock seats usually suck at slide adjustments. Any plans for the rear seats? My 'Vert Z-28 is getting Audi seats retro-fitted in -they do sit just a tad high, even when dropped fully (power height-adjustable), but...

Re: 1992 - Stall After Surge / Slow Cycling

Lastly, these computers are nearly bullet-proof, and it used to be that every time someone couldn't figure out a problem, they screamed bad ECM . It (almost) never was. This could be the problem you have now, though I doubt it. I am glad you seem to have it figured out. I have noticed a lot of the ...

Re: Black z26 hood

The header panel is one piece, all the way across. Same part for all years and sub-models, so easier to find, and because it hides under the plastics, who cares what it looks like so long as it isn't cracked? Only problem is that it is a BIG piece, so getting someone to ship one to you will cost -is...

Re: The Z26 you all wanted to see

Just make sure the hood is latching securely if you are going to keep driving it. Or you will likely be buying a new windshield too... Will you try to fix the driver's side fender, or replace that too? Black (if non-metallic, like yours) is the EASIEST to paint-match, but it does show flaws the wors...

Re: Black z26 hood

I would say you could take the opportunity to join in on the cowl-hood group-buy and use the opportunity to upgrade the car, but even if the deal is still going, they aren't cheap. They are a nice piece though, and lets you spend money moving the car forward, instead of spending money to get back wh...

Re: what did you do to your ride today?

Got the tire leak fixed on the GTU -irritating and shameful, as this is the newest tire on the car, and I had mounted it up myself a few years ago when I worked at a shop that did tires too. It worked great, but then the car sat for several months (I was hearing noise in tranny, and was afraid it mi...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

I like those Solar Wings... I think they look good on some cars, maybe even especially on the Berettas. Nice job! :good:

(I still need one, or six, of those myself... :crazy: )
