Trying to summarize here - my '79 SC has zinc-plated hex bolts that are grade 8.8. But maybe they should be pan head, maybe grade 8.8, or maybe 12.9?

I see in that Grady thread, post #34, that...

The Stable Energies is a triangulated bar. Steve Weiner always used to say to get that type. I have that one in my Targa and I thought I could tell a difference, but maybe it was in my head.

There are no drain holes, and you have to wonder how all that water got in there. They look pretty snug up against the bumper, so all I can think of is through the light housing.

I think drilling...

Where is the shape different? I was under the impression that the bumper profile was slightly different, so although they will bolt on, there will be gaps.

If it were me, gaps wouldn't be...

I hope you don't think I was calling you out or anything. I don't think a lot of people realize there is a difference. I didn't until I was researching for my car.

Just a heads-up (having gone through this when looking for bumperettes for my car), the 1984-1989 rear bumperettes are slightly different than the earlier cars. I don't think these will fit a...

The 5000 XLS definitely works, but you need to position it inside of the tires.

Easiest way to check is look at the specs on the QuickJack website. They should indicate the range of lengths...

Nice job, thanks for posting that.

Kurt, thanks for the correction. It briefly occurred to me that the '84 might have still had the 3-spoke, I should have checked before posting.

OP, still would like to see some photos of your...

Hi, if you still have this, I will take it. Especially if you are in Boston instead of Vermont, I'm willing to come get it and save us both shipping.

PM sent as well.

Thanks,

I've never heard of the splines on the steering wheel breaking, can you post some photos?

Also, you mention an original 3-spoke. As far as I know, your car should have the 4-spoke. Are you sure...

I've been thinking of side stripes on schwarz metallic as well, but since the color is closer to titanium than black, maybe a subtle gold color would look better than silver.

It's not 100%, but close. That long Allen wrench should have a black rubber tip to grip the battery hold-down bolt. No tow hook, but I don't think the late SC's came with one. Also missing the...

I think mid-1970's to early 1980's. What size is the fan pulley nut wrench? That will tell you if it is pre- or post-1979.

I've been using Fast Orange for years, works great.

It even takes off the green residue and odor after I've been working in my tomato patch.

To do it safely, yes. Whatever fuel is left in the tank will drain out in a hurry when the strainer is removed. Probably easiest to remove the fuel sender unit and siphon from there.
