Topics I've Started

Fuel Tank, Black Dashboard, Buckskin 88 Carpet, Black 86 Carpet

Today, 11:53 AM

I'm trying to clean up my garage and I'd like to part with a few of these larger items to regain some space.   Based on the size, I'd much prefer to have these picked up rather than ship.  I'm at the PA/MD border right off of Rt 81 (zip 17202).

Fuel Tank:  $50 obo

No internal rust!  

I started to clean this up and removed all of the undercoating in preparation for restoration. It appears the tank was dented on the bottom sometime in its life.  The dent contacted an inner tube on the tank and broke a weld.  See photos.   I was planning on repairing the issue with a fuel resistant epoxy resin but because my hand was too big to access the location, I decided to restore another spare tank that I had. I hate to throw this thing away because there is absolutely no internal rust which is rare to find nowadays.

Black Dashboard:  Free

From an 88.  Has a small blemish just behind where the cluster hood sits on the right side.   Photos will be added shortly.


88/89 Buckskin carpet:  $50 obo

Decent condition.  Photos will be added shortly.

86 Black carpet:  $75 obo

Insulation has been removed on the underside.  Car had a 5 point seatbelt harness at one time and carpet has a hole where it mounted, see photo.   The black plastic pads are coming loose, needs re-glued.   Photo shows it over an aftermarket carpet (I used it as a template).   Good swap if you are going with manual seat belts!

Cxracing radiator with clutch fan?

06 November 2018 - 04:14 PM

Well it turns out that my OEM radiator that I had re-cored has a small crack in the lower tank.  30 years of corrosion took its toll on it I guess.  I can take it up the road to the radiator shop and have it brazed but I'm concerned that it will just crack again in another spot.   Figures...

I never used an aluminum radiator on these cars.  The OEM units have always been pretty reliable for me.  Will a cxracing unit work with a clutch fan/shroud setup?

Thanks,
Kevin

A pillar Gauge Pod - 86 & earlier

08 February 2018 - 12:36 PM

What A-pillar gauge pods are you guys using for an 86 and earlier car (or manual seatbelt converted 87+)?  

I saw they have one available at this site but no photos:

Anyone use it before?  Does it fit correctly? Any other options?

Thanks,
Kevin

edit:  fixed the title.  A pillar not the B pillar.  Sorry about that
