    Ocular Migraines

    Anyone here ever had such a thing? I'm working away at my computer and all of a sudden I get this zig zag flash or bur, kind of hard to explain. Went for a walk and then went and sat in the dark and it went away. Took about 30 minutes. No headache, just the vision thing. Googled it and seems...

    Build Sheet Reproduction

    I found what was left of my build sheets, one under the drivers seat and the other above the fuel tank. Neither are in great shape but between the two I think I can gather most information. I'm wondering if anyone has a template to reproduce the build sheet (maybe an excel sheet) or if there are...

    1981 Air Induction Wiring

    I'm sure there is info out there but I can't seem to find a real good detailed picture of the wiring at the solenoid. If someone could post a pic under the hood, my car was missing the solenoid so I bought a replacement and harness. The new harness does not reach the original wire that comes...

    Factory T-Top Tint

    Can anyone tell me what the factory tint is on the fisher TTops? I was cleaning mine up and made the mistake of trying to remove some scratches from the inside with a cerium oxide paste and I made it worse. Seems like a removed some of the tint and added some swirl marks. Anyone know a fix?

    The last paint question I’ll ever ask

    This piece is going to be the death of me. First paint went great except it was the wrong mix. It’s a long sorted story. Should have gave it back to the paint supplier and told them to fix it but pressed on with promises of free material. Second time went okay, my clear was pretty orange peel...

    Glass Polishing

    Been looking for side glass for my 81. Lots of used junk for sale that are as scratched up as mine. I'm attempting to polish out the scratches but not sure if I'm doing more harm than good. To get the deep gouges out (ones I could catch a nail on) I used 180 grit on a 7" polisher across the...

    Tool Descriptions for the Craftsman

    This may be an old on but I got a good laugh out of it today. Tools DRILL PRESS : A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you...

    Door alignment question

    Actually more of a latching question. I have my doors aligned fairly well, just buttoning them up. When I adjust the latch post should it hold the door tight without weather stripping or does the weatherstripping put enough pressure on the door to hold it in place. What I guess I'm saying is I...

    I am slowly putting things back together and am having a brain fart. I'm sure when I get the point that I need these I'll figure it out but anyone know off hand what these brackets are for?

    Annoying Co-Worker

    I have this co-worker across the hall. She is a Director and I am a lowly Manager. She is not my boss but I do have to interact with her. She constantly walks into my office in mid conversation, half the time I have no idea what she is talking about or if she is even talking to me. It's like she...

    Paint mix up

    Welp, one step forward 3 steps back. In a tragic turn of events I have discovered the error of my ways and now my neck is kinked and I am stressed the F out. When I planned the paint for the car we had always discussed base/clear. I talked to my body guy and that is what he recommended. Talked...

    Gasket for Fender Vents

    Does anyone know where the thin plastic gasket is supposed to go on the fender vents (1981)? Under the actual vent on the outside of the fender or under the bracket inside the fender? Thanks in advance.

    Slicksand newbie question

    Sprayed 3 coats of slicksand primer, didn't reduce with acetone as I thought it was spraying nicely. However now I see there is lots of texture that I will need to take down with a DA sander and then block sand. I started on the rear fender and it turned out pretty well except a couple spots...

    Early Birds

    Not sure where else to put this so I will leave it here. Ordered what was described as an exterior screw set for 2nd gen Camaro from Early Birds in Ontario. The description said they would confirm contents and a shipping cost before billing. Never received either, only an extra $10 charge to my...
