Re: Fix This Door, Have It Reskinned, Or Replace It?

Well that sucks. I'm no painter or body man but if I had that, with all the 3rd gen cars out there, I would pick up a good door, swap all my stuff to it, and have it painted.

Re: 87 GTA Washer fluid bottle for digital dash

Just buy a new one from Classic Industries, Hawks, or F Body Warehouse and cut the new 1 1/2" hole and add you sensor. I done that with my 88 GTA Digital.

Re: Header install with pictures

Yeah, they worked for me. Tap the extractor down pretty good and use a steady even pull on the B-Bar or ratchet. Tap while you are pulling. Once it started to move, it spun right out.

Re: Delco Morain Rear Brakes, soft pedal

So glad to hear you're making progress! Yeah, $45 bucks for a MC is great, especially after changing everything that you done so far.
