    Mac--

    Good to know, I usually just fix everything with my credit card and cell phone. biggrin image

    I was so paranoid last year, I had a spare alternator, belts, HEI module, and water pump in the trunk...but go figure, nothing basic like oil.

    Looking forward to seeing you again!

    I'm just glad I could help. And not give shame to my namesake. biggrin image
    It will be awesome to see everyone again. Wish I could have afforded the other gatherings along the year, but thats life.

    Eh... I'll take the actual 6 speed I'm dumping in mine.

    i was having some problems with my wheel spoilers and was wondering if anyone else had similar problems... my old ones had holes and cracks in them so i bought a set from year one. we test fit the new parts and they seemed to fit fine, so we got them painted and striped them up. when we put the finished product on the car, no matter how much they were tightened, loosened or just tweeked in general, the rubber molding wouldnt fit flush with the fender. there was almost a quarter inch gap in places and all over really wavy. i didnt know if anyone else had seen this before or had a little "trick" to making them work better?

     

    keep it easy

    Ryno,
    That spoiler misfit is fairly common especially on the front spoilers. I have both the 78 and 79 models. Out of both, the 79 seems to be the worst as time goes on with not seaming up to the fenders. I have replaced the welting and they still have gaps away from the fender.
    Not that this info helps you any... but without modifying the spoilers, there isn't an easy fix.
