Re: 1965 Oldsmobile 442

The red walls look good. I would not run those skinny tires on a car that heavy. If the manufacturer used current rubber technology it should at least have more grip than the original bias ply tires from the 60's. The Saturn came stock with 195 tires (7.67") and weighed like 2500-2600 new. On t...

Re: 89 Corvette Mostmint #39

There was considerable grinding from the car on the way back from the dragstrip. Since the wheel bearings were in stock here and Fred32V was coming over, the Vette got some attention last Friday and all four bearings were replaced. The rears look like they were leaking grease - maybe a really long t...

Re: 2019 Dodge Charger

I haven't painted a whole car in over two decades. Paint technology has changed and the internet is showing me some different ideas about painting. I have some big questions like 1) does it make sense to paint the panels separately and assemble the car when I'm done? In this case I'm not taking the ...

Re: 2019 Dodge Charger

Focus of recent activity has been on the interior/center console * Found a wire connector in the console area that did not look OEM, so I followed it up behind the glove box, only to find this harness had tapped into the passenger airbag wiring. This is probably why the airbag light did not go out. ...

Re: 89 Corvette Mostmint #43

Some time in November we put some paint on the LR quarter panel. Kurt got the gift of car work for Christmas so I've been busy with that: - The heater is now working. The vacuum lines were not connected, the electronic air conditioning controller and the blower motor controller were not working. Luc...
