https://imgur.com/5GwH7nL Open this pic, then maximize. Look closely & you can see drops of soap in various stages of falling. One right in front of the rf is just making contact with the soapy driveway. Pretty cool.

Did a filter and fluid change on the trans, got my fans back operating the way they are supposed too. Love the way she shifts compared to before.

Re: what did you do to your thirdgen today?

Finished mechanical refresh. When I bought the car in February, it was pretty much original, unopened. 29 years and 117,000 miles ago. Hoping to change only what was needed to get it running right. Ended up doing everything chasing one problem or another. Yesterday, powertrain ran perfect. Last problem solved. Time for a break and pay down some debt.

Re: what did you do to your thirdgen today?

I'm starting to have an intermittent issue with the passenger headlight. if I hit the headlights right when I start the car the passenger side doesn't want to come up. if I dive a block or so and hit the lights they both pop up fine. are they electric motors with vacuum assist? it seems like its a vacuum issue.

Yes sir, I did. Had to buy the entire HVAC unit, just to get the ****. $60. Makes me wish I had waited, but the radio **** had to go. Thanks for hooking me up, though.

Re: what did you do to your thirdgen today?

I redid my dry erase garage project board for the firebird. most of the projects on the list had been crossed through so I cleaned it up and made my list cleaner and easier to follow. looks like I have headlight hi beam switch, headlight vacuum issue, noise in the rear end, seatbelt retaining loop. not a huge list really. the noise in the rear end concerns me though. when I'm sitting at a stop and hit the gas to take off any faster than a crawl it sounds like a "snap"! maybe a broken shock or shock mount? something seems like its moving when it shouldn't be.

Just opened the pkg Saturday, as it was nothing but a back up. Good thing I did when I did, because they sent me a **** for a Firebird.http://www.ebay.ca/itm/85-92-FIREBIR....c100005.m1851 Contacted the seller & notified him about the error. He apologized for his employee's mistake & is sending me the proper one. Anybody need an HVAC fan control **** for their 3rd gen bird?

It was a very nice day today so I thought I would detail my truck and the Camaro. Not sure if anyone else uses Ammo NYC products but the Ammo Reflex (nano coating) and Ammo Skin made my paint look like glass. I highly recommend it.

When I get the Iroc home, it will get the same treatment. And the only time it will ever get wet will be when it gets washed.

I refinished the rear pannels and put in new door pannels. I'm not happy with my homemade speaker covers. If anyone has a set for sale hit me up.

Re: what did you do to your thirdgen today?

Had a fuel delivery issue I've been chasing for a few days. Traced it to clogged injectors. Being that the car is 28 years old, I replaced all of them. Road testing the car, I discovered a broken transmission mount. At least I got throttle response.

Front and rear sway bar bushings and links.


Swapped out the 30 year stuff for energy suspension poly bushings.

Re: what did you do to your thirdgen today?

Deadened the front doors by spraying rubber against outer skin and sticky-mat on the inner door panel. Ready for 6.5" speakers. Got the power mirrors working after eons. Got into the mirror switchpad big time. Took it all apart, cleaned the contacts, bent the tab fingers around, repaired the burnt board. Geez. But it was worth it in the end. Got cool OEM power mirrors.

Fixed a dodgy stereo connection which only allowed me to have all speakers working whilst turning left...

Why bother? Just keep making left turns when a good song comes on!
