Re: Driver side extension spring - anyone have a source

Any front bucket seat in a GM vehicle from about 1977 until 2010 would probably have the same type of spring. I'm sure anyone with a thirdgen parts hord would have a few in a box somewhere. I'm...

Re: Accelerator stud / fuse box hush panel connection

It's a little stamped steel wingnut/flat washer gizmo. M6 something or other.

85-90 Trans Am tail lights. The center section in the photo isn't correct for those lenses. The correct center piece has the reflective strip across the bottom like the tail lights.
