Re: 65 Corsa instrument aluminum overlay...what is exposed?

I've taken a few dashes apart and there were four or five dried up brittle globs of beige stuff the size of a looney (Cdn $1 coin) What are you guys using to adhere the aluminum to the plastic dash backing--if anything--before re-installing? I'm thinking a couple strips of double sided tape to preve...

Re: HD coil springs...

HD coil springs...

Any of you bought HD springs from somewhere else that give the stock or a little bit higher ride height in the back?

Re: Clarks clutch cable?

I replaced the one on my '66 with a Clarks. Well its a clutch cable...doesn't look as strong as laundry cable...so we'll see next year I suppose (BTW - I'm in the GWN).

If it fails, I'm going chain.

Re: Wayne 100 powered boats.
