Jim I laugh every time I see the "pickup" in action. I'm so getting you ratchet straps for Christmas. (to increase the load dimension capability)

Wait now i want to make the red one onto a porcamino!!!!

Sorry the deep end comes quickly for those of us in the shallow end of the gene pool.

Just wanted to say I like that you use your car.

Steve

porcamino....it has a ring to it

And to think I just man handle doors in place, put them on my legs, with my wheelie stool, and then make up new words for all the frustration I cause myself.

thank god I had the hoist... no way could I have installed 4 doors without it... would have had to ask the wife for help/muscle (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

got the caps on, seems all years are the same.

I have some sort of radiator leak, its slow. will investigate this further.

bushings to keep headlights permanently up are in.

yesterday I picked up a fuse box section and a front bumper from mark Epstein (thanks mark!). my center fuse box section had a broken ear, so I replaced it today (one wire at a time). I put white fuses in all for now, but will replace with higher amp fuses as required asap. so far I can see I have, headlights low and high beams, marker lights, brake lights, wipers. I think I have a faulty horn relay?

I do not have my dash gauges in and am wondering if this could be stopping my directionals and hazards from functioning?

Save your old fuse panel in case you or someone else needs to harvest more metal clips in the future.


I do admire the way you make progress on your car.

Another edit - looking at your list, I have a couple more parts. I think the battery that came in the California car is almost new. Your welcome to it. I'm going to try one of the new super small, super light lithium batteries.

mark - that is awesome - I am so glad I got a kid that goes to school up in your area which requires me to pass by your shop every few weeks (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I think I am short a few door hinge screws and a horn, gonna add these to my list.

mark, how about I visit next week, I need to bring you the remaining fuse box parts and the fog light grills, anyway.

things you may have for me...
targa vertical trim
battery
clip nuts

to all, while you may think you will be able to remember what screws go where, you won't, label every single screw/nut/bolt/washer (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)

Yup, remove the whole turn signal bucket. and you'll see the bracket backing being held by 3 screws IIRC. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

guess if I just remove lens, maybe I would have a lesser angle on screw driver to install this last screw?

Small bit and bit holder does the trick also, remove the turns signals (IMG:style_emoticons/default/WTF.gif)

Attached Image

Or take a bit and put it the proper size socket, and put it in (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

I'm a tool whore so I am sure I can find about 10 different ways to do this with out taking out the turn signal buckets.

Hold the bit in a pair of vice grips

Hold the bit in your fingers

Hold the bit it a socket

Hold the bit in the tool shown above

Bit in the flex thing

Right angle screw driver

Goto autozone, have them replace your light bulb. Have your wife do this it works out better. Have her tell them she took the cover off thinking thats how the bulb got changed.

Drive it up to Mark's shop and ask to borrow the proper tool, and do it there.

Go to any tool store buy the proper tool, and promptly bring it back.

Get a 12" long 1/4" bit, drill a hole from the outside fender through everything that gets in your way to the screw. start the screw take a 12 inch long #2 philips screw driver and screw it in. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif) Problem solved. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

Sorry not trying to be an arse about it, just can't believe taking the turn signal bucket out is the favored way.

Carry on (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)

(( driver bit in fingers seems like a decent solution to me - thanks ))

so, got gauges mostly installed but have a few EXTRA wires (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

red/white with 2 small connectors on it
blk/yel - with 1 small connector on it
blue/green - with 1 small connector on it

and it seems I do not have enough metal light fixtures? calling mark (IMG:style_emoticons/default/popcorn[1].gif)

my recommendation is everyone should have a parts car rusting away in their back yard (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif)
