Re: Old school 510

Byron, Thanks for the info. So after many months of sitting in the garage I went to start the car and discovered that the nozzles on the SUs were stuck in the "choke off" position. Unfortunately I didn't have the time to mess with it but later this week I'll dig into it. So is it the new crappy gas ...

Re: WTB: Passenger Door Mechanism

Corey,
I have an extra set for both doors but I'm going to be out of town until Friday evening. I can check this weekend if you still need them by then.

Getting any sleep yet?

Re: 72 2 Door 510 Restoration-25 years in the making

Rush, The 1" wide strip of metal is really easy to bend. To make the template I used a piece of blue painters tape Laid it over the lower rocker panel just below the back edge of the door Used a fine line pen to mark the bend lines and put the tape on the metal strip and then shaped it to match the ...

Joel,
