Well the Pro 5.0 short shifter sucks. The used one I have makes it hard to get into gear and it's also hard to know when in gear. I went to a stock shifter and also replaced the brass cup bushing with stock plastic one. It finally feels right. IDK how these are when new but I dont recommend it. I even contacted the guy who makes it and heard nothing in response.



I also installed Ben's panhard bar. Stock bushings were better than I expected at 400k

got around to replacing my "modern" Kenwood chair radio. Super bright at night and stupid colors.



I went with Alpine, tape and everything works. Now I can finally rock some tapes I have. I'm thinking of getting a GROM (or something equivalent) eventually, I have one on my 850 and I like it a lot

(I need to take a better pictures)


I made an extra long wiring for easier installation and removal. Im having trouble figuring out the rear channels, I can get one working or both if I mono them. Time to find a wiring diagram or owners manual for this thing


Matches my aluminum speaker grills. I have a matching set for the rear too.

The speaker grills match the doors PERFECTLY.

Looks great. I keep holding back from "big" speakers to keep the factory grilles. Time for me to get over it...

Thank you. I agree. I was very happy when I found them.
Aluminum case, black with silver trim, period correct design and made by Alpine

Thanks Carl
I have an extra set of these and another period correct set that looks great. They are stock size (4) and would work great for someone that wants something different. Other then Bens custom machined larger adapters/grills I am yet to find something that doesn’t look tacky. I look for vintage grills all the time and most are junk

Ps. I love this radio. At night it looks great. The on/off/volume knob is something I missed too.

CLICK - lights come on, “ratchet” feeling turning the volume while the speakers slowly come to life.

I noticed that the light around the left side of the deck is out. Pulling it out to fix it will be easy ;)


Highly recommend going with something period correct, it makes the experience of driving an old car that much better... then again I also buy and fix old stereos. Denon, Marantz, Sony, Pioneer, Sansui etc from 70s and early 80s only

Finally got around to installing Bens upper strut mounts. For some reason the front of my car always sat high even with B&G springs compared to my other one with same setup. Front tires got worn out pretty quickly so I decided to do the swap today


My upper mounts were shot - this is even with the "GT" spacer that someone on here makes to reinforce the mounts




plate on the passenger side dished in too



ones that were on this car are on the left. Note how top coil on that one is touching the coil below - newer design doesn't do that. Same part numbers


while in there I replaced both TREs - came new in box with another car I bought - from FCP but I never heard of the brand. See how long they last





after

yeah no kidding. What's it been 2 years last December since I got those from you?


a little preview. Finally getting around to painting my faded trim and I decided to paint the door rain guards black. You can see in the last picture how ****ty the driver side looks. (I originally wanted to go all chrome on the car and stripped the paint from the driver front door... you know 6-7 years ago....

SEM of course

All those silences when I asked what you think of it make a lot of sense now.

Thanks I prefer to sniff SEM over duplicolor, makes me feel better, espeically when I buy the 49 state version ... MMMMMMMM

I have only used duplicolor on engine parts per your recommendation and I like it. Haven’t tried their bumper trim pain. SEM is super forgiving and dries fast.

I might be tackling 145 vent windows soon too - figuring out the gasket is whats holding me back ... and the other million projects I have going

After getting my hands on a Moose Rack two years ago, I finally got around to powder coating it. It is surprisingly quiet at highway speeds, I couldn't tell a difference with it on or off. Now I just need to find generic gutter posts to replace the missing middle ones on this rack

haha... They are just plain Bosch with Saab reflective sides and BMW E21 etc fog light protective brackets. Passenger side is loose because the curb where I took this photo is like 12+ inches high, space is sloped and you park at an angle. People (including me) always **** something up thee, at the post office


I'll be redoing the whole setup when I take the bumper off for painting. I'm thinking of going smaller fogs in the same bumper but IDK what to go with since I like the look of those but scrape them quite a bit. That damn parking spot also caused me to fuk up my front spoiler ... damn it
