  1. I was driving along a secondary road last week and saw a for sale vehicle sitting on the side of the road. I kept driving and it hit me - a Reatta !!! Actually felt silly after that, but turned around and had a look-see. 1988 with a sun roof and burgundy interior. Body looked straight, but had aftermarket mags. Didn't spend any more time as I want another 91. If anyone is interested send me a message and I will forward contact information.......
  2. Reatta coupe cutaway on Ebay

    I bought this one. I now have two - one for the office with other Reatta posters and one for the garage. Two bothers or confusing issues: 1 - Not the same size - 1 small and 1 big ????? 2 - I paid 30 some dollars for the 1st and smaller print many years ago - maybe 2006 thru 2008. Wonder want happened to the value? Any comments or knowledge appreciated.......
  3. Vinyl - Leather Repair Help Please

    Good Sunday Morning !!!! And thank you both for the replies/information and the film. Film is a Good - Great - Excellent Tutorial and very much appreciated ! I have dyed some automotive and boat upholstery before, but never actually repaired age or accident related damages (reason/s for my post), and did not even know that there was a leather filler available. The saying about teaching an old dog new tricks certainly applies here as the film provided Great Information and Tips. I found the venues 866 telephone number in Canada, and intend on calling Monday with some product questions and an order. I now won't have to place an order on Amazon for products that are guesses. As usual you fellows and the forum are the Absolute Best !
  4. Vinyl - Leather Repair Help Please

    Thanks for the reply Digger914. Appreciate the advise greatly - could you possible suggest a better kit that you suggest - not wealthy by any means but in complete agreement as far as spending more to get better - thanks again..... Opps - when searching for a better kit I noticed a ton of leather "restorers". Would really appreciate some suggestions - advice on this type of product as well if possible - thanks ! Nic
  5. Morning Folks ! I have a couple of tiny splits in the vinyl of my left or drivers side gray door panel in the 90 coupe. I will replace the panel if I can find one in good or better condition than mine, but was also looking on the net and found several repair kits marketed by companies such as JB Weld, Leather New, etc......(example below). I was/am curious if anyone on the forum has had any experience with these particular kits or any of the numerous others that are offered - available.....please advise, and Thanks!

  6. Reatta Specialty Parts

    Ditto On Ronnies and everyones comments Kingsley, We never did get a roadster or convertible wind screen developed, but I certainly enjoyed working with you (still have my prototype around somewhere I think). Due to some Military disabilities I have been off the forum for a while, but hopefully intend on "rejoining" and hope to see/read an update from you now and then Sir Sincerely, Nic
  7. Select Sixty at a car show

    For some reason I could not post a link to a Select Sixty you tube "film" at a car show. The post above this one has the link in the title line and it works. The owner has a nice car of course, but also has some nice documentation of which there is an item or two that I do not think we or the forum are aware of - Mr. Eaton can you view and advise???
  8. SS "Film" at a car show - this forum won't let me post the link for some reason - neat presentation - just click on the link in the subject line - there is some literature that some of us that have SS models may not have or are aware of..... copy title and view
  9. Carpeting Heads Up

    I am not sure if the forum has any good leads on replacement carpeting or not. I just found what seems to be an excellent source. Venue or merchant is the "AutoMat Store" in Columbia Missouri. A super nice and exceptionally helpful young lady named Samantha spent a good while with me on the phone and is sending me free samples for "Flame Red" carpeting for the Select Sixty. The supplying factory does not have a Flame Red variety of carpet. My Flame Red carpet is not worn but has some sort of strange coffee appearing stain in several places. Samantha seems to think it could be the jute under the carpet that may have gotten wet at some point, but the car only has 40k on the clock and has always been garaged - anyone have any condition/s like this or have any idea what could have caused it please? Smantha/AutoMat Store contact number if needed is 1.573.355.5368 Thanks, Nic
  10. Anyone familiar with this oil treatment please?

    Thanks much for your thoughts folks. I will leave the treatment on the shelf, and leave it to - and let my Beneficiary or beneficiaries worry about what to do with it :).
  11. Schaeffer Manufacturing Co. 0132-023S Moly EP Oil Treatment I picked up a pint of this product on sale a good while ago (did not research before I purchased - was really reduced in price a lot - like 3 or $4.00). I just now read some of the reviews, and most folks are really impressed with it - I never normally add anything to the crankcase and was wondering if it would be advisable - and / or can I have some opinions please?
  12. Why is it?

    I never knew about this...I have always had the S/S listed, but will add the 90 coupe and 91 roadster immediately.
  13. power seat

    Is there any noise - clicking, or motor noise when the activation toggle is engaged?
  14. Appropriate plug wire fitment...

    Thanks Dashmaster - I just returned to the forum recently from a long absence, and among other difficulties have apparently experienced a loss of memory -- totally forgot about Ronnies Store - will go there now....maybe what he has will suffice... Can someone in the know please advise on the originality of the wires in above post "A/C Delco - Packard 8mm" Nic
  15. Appropriate plug wire fitment...

    There are several sets of A/C Delco plug wires on Amazon for the 1990 models. There is one listed at about 15.00 and the ad states original GM fitment....But there are several "professional" sets that have more "features" for twice that amount - I have no idea what some of the features are or if these feature are absolutely necessary. Is the below set appropriate for .......Keeping Everything As ORIGINAL as Possible......for my 1990 Select Sixty please? A/c Delco 616V GM Wires OR https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BYGCJI/ref=ox_sc_act_title_4?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A1H2Y8SWATZCTZ ********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************* Also can someone tell me if the ones I have are original please - they are black and have the printing "A/C Delco - Packard 8mm". The car is running fine and not missing with 44k so if original I would hold on to or keep them - please advise? Thanks Folks, Nic
