Need a vehicle shipped from washington state to ohio...again.
I know I left a review of my previous shipping company.
Tried everything.
Can't locate the review.
Do you still have these? If so which ones are they. Curious if I can get support from the supplier if needed? Where are you located?

Paint and Body / Re: Trunk Lid Gas Shock Lift Assist?

I know I am responding a couple months past the last post, but I just replaced mine and I made a tool to do it that made installation easy....especially in your situation with the paint. I basically used a ratchet with an extension and a socket and torqued it like tightening a bolt.  Worked great with only minimal struggle.

The tool I made is as follows:

Find a spare socket that you do not mind ruining. Drill a hole completely through the sides. Attach the socket to an extension and ratchet. Using electrical tape, tape the socket and the extension together - this helps ensure you do not pull the unit apart while to using it.

Run the end of the rod that needs to be locked in place through the hole in the socket. Using some of the tape, tape the attached tool to the rod itself - this helps ensure you don't inadvertently slide the tool off as you use it. Then use the ratchet to twist or torque the rod similar to tightening a bolt, and clip in place.

You may need the assistance of a second person with a flat tip screw driver to help you clip the torqued rod in place. To remove the tool, use a drimmel to cut through the side of the socket and a flat tip screw driver to pry it apart. Be careful not to cut into the rod.

Hope this helps if you have not undertaken the job yet.

Cars for Sale/Wanted / WTB 79 Trans Am W72
« Last post by TA Crazy on March 15, 2018, 09:35:03 PM »
Looking for a 79 Trans Am, car must be black numbers matching with 400/4sp with T-Tops No Exceptions. My Holy Grail would be black with black hobnail interior and charcoal graphics but will consider camel with gold graphics. Not really looking for a project prefer a turn key low mileage car. I am willing to travel for the right car, cash in hand.

Parts Wanted / Wanted - EFE vacuum line (steel)
« Last post by Bill Linthicum on March 14, 2018, 10:20:08 AM »
I can make one but would prefer to find an original one.  It is the vacuum line (steel) that goes from the EFE flipper located at the base of the driver's side exhaust manifold, up the back of the engine, to the passenger side valve cover.  I then goes to rubber to the vacuum switch next to the thermostat housing.

I tossed mine 30 years ago as a dumb kid.  Any help with helping me locate one would  be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.
