Does that GT have anything left in the interior ? I'm thinking of heading over there today, I need the cluster.

Was there on Friday. At that time the interior was still all there.

Jason: Dammit, you took the air guides for the headlights.

Did you grab the air deflector bit too? If not I have the one that goes with these for $free.99.
Thanks! The headlight shields really work.

I did get the air deflector thingy, even though I probably have one some where in the crawspace. Ralph wanted $9.99, but it was perfect.

The cluster was in there yesterday, but the plastic cover (lens?)
thingy was cracked. 220,000km or so, and of course a tach.

Much of the interior was still there, but it is pretty rough.
Looks like the car had been parked in the back forty for a decade
or so. Rodent feces and walnuts all through the engine bay. Moss
and algae growing all over.

Ya I headed out before you posted and all I have to say is to the person who got the A cam, I hope you were wearing gloves and have a recent tetanus shot LOL, I've never seen so much rat poo before...

Sadly the lens on the cluster was cracked, otherwise it was very nice. Not a total loss as I got the rear deck which was in very good shape and some other bits. I was hoping to find another 240 in there with tail lights I could snag but no such luck.

Yeah, I bought those in January. They're Jason's old winters which no longer fit Bert since it acquired brake rotors the size of pizza platters.

No worries on the wrench Jesse- just whenever you get a chance.

It's funny since "Bert" is also the name of the best mechanic at our shop.

It was a B cam...

I thought it was squirrels, judging by the nut shells in the battery tray.

Aha, well hope it was in good shape. It was home to something for a time by the looks of it. Did you also get the GT badge of the wheel and red dash trim ? I was surprised to see the interior in such good shape. It must have been parked for some time with only 200k's on the clock.

From the looks of it, just use the same machining process they used on the outer lip on the inside, and you could probably run without.

Ha ha, if only you just needed to remove material, and not ADD it to fit them to a RWD

25mm front, 32mm back seem to be the hot ticket for FWD rims on a RWD.
