Re: Heater Duct Collar re-installation

It was ten or twenty years ago, but I'm pretty sure I used plain old duct tape to secure the metal collar to the plastic duct. Maybe a screw or two, but I don't think so. I've had the tunnel pan down several times since then and the plastic duct, too. The tape is still secure. ::-):

Re: Wow this site is hard to log into!!!!

I find that I have to enter my username and password twice, in rapid succcesion, for the login to actually take place. The first time, the site ignores me. The second time, it lets me in. Strange, but it works! :dontknow: By the way, I love the emojies on this site! :tongue:

Re: $1000 "Corvair Basics" Book

$1,000! Such a deal! LOL! I have to tell the guys on the CORSA Board of Directors about this. They'll get a kick out of it!

As Bruins_Fan mentioned, CORSA will mail you a copy of Corvair Basics, gratis, for those folks joining the club for the very first time.
