    • I have a set of 4 Magnum 500 wheels with decent 245/60/15's on them. Wheels have some rust and need to be cleaned up as well as the black centers repainted. $100 takes all four. Local pick-up in Dallas/Fort Worth or shipped on your dime and arrangements
    • Very good and useful. Thank you.
    • Finally getting round to doing some work on the 73 Q-Code 4-spd. Coupe I bought in the Fall of 2019. I only did an oil change (and a master Cylinder when it went in for Provincial Certification) on it last year and drove it a few times in the summer... Its a pretty original car, except they partially painted it once and someone took a spray bomb to parts of the underbody, probably at the dealer where I purchased it in Daytona Beach... An original Oakland, Cali. car all its life until 2017 when it was sold and brought East by the dealer. The brakes need a complete refresh and I will change out all the fluids, do a tune up, etc. The carb sometimes run's rich for a while on start up and even after the choke should have fully open. After a half hour of driving, it miraculously run's fine. I will pull the carb and clean it up. Look at all of the emissions crap on these '73's... This is a California emission's car to boot, so it is fully loaded with that stuff. I will clean it up, it will probably be clogged under the carb., which is natural for these set-up's. I know most like to pull the emission stuff, but I endeavor to keep my car's as close to factory as possible. Think I will pull the valve covers and change the valve seals too while I am at it. It is a 45K mi car, so most of the original stuff is still there. It appears that only required routine maintenance stuff was changed out in the past; rad hoses and the A/C belt (I have all new Marti correct rad hose and belt pieces). Otherwise, an all original car. The front suspension still looks good, the ball joints are all in great shape. The two tie rod ends both have a cracked rubber boot, so I will look to see if I can save them or change them out if need be. You can see in the pic, that the rubber shock grommet has disintegrated, so I will replace where necessary. Spent the past three months on my 86 300ZX, which was its own challenge for me. Learned a lot on that car, but they are not too bad to work on if you have the manual and patience... Should have this Coupe ready for late Spring and knowing it will be truly be road worthy at that time. 
    • For anyone reading this who has not already done so: Rebuild your door hinges before even starting any other corrections involving these long heavy doors which wreak havoc on hinges Even a teensy bit of slop at the front is multiplied exponentially at the rear. You will still have alignment and gap issues, but they will be consistent...
