  1. Looks like you are off to a good start. Hope it has a great ending!
  2. I guess I have as much experience as anyone so here goes. When we did the tranny only removal we jacked the car up and used a Harbor Freight cherry picker to hold the engine in place and seperated the tranny from the engine and let it down with a tranny jack. The cherry picker did not do much more then hold the engine in place. When we did the engine and the tranny we removed the hood, radiator fans and radiator and pulled from the top. If I was "only" doing the tranny dropping it out the bottom is the way to go.
  3. I have personall seen this car as I left the house at 4:15 am to drive down there to pull parts thinking it was a 1989. It is a 1990. The inner door panels are in great shape and the front seats are 6 way and in great shape. If you want great seats for a good price make arrangements to get them. The side windows are gone so they will not look good for long and besides they turn their inventory every 45 days. You can contact Johnny to see if he can help or if he will tell you what yard this Reatta is in. The cornering lamps, headlight switch, IPC, door switches, radio, Teves Master Cylindern are all gone. The fog lights are still there and they are pretty clear. But the seats are really good. Look at the pictures he posted for yourself...
  4. This will be a great series of posts. Maybe you should start a new post when you start. Good luck!
  5. This is exactly how I do my brakes. Good write up...
  6. I just went over to ebay to buy a NOS headlight switch and then took a look at what Eddie is charging now. He is at $250.00 which in my opinion is still a great deal.
  7. David you responded to redreattalady who hasn't been here since 2008. However it is a gooid response as we need a reminder as to who we can go to for some of the electrical stuff. I also have used Eddie and his service is great. The one I sent him I recieved and put away wihout testing. That was about a year ago...
  8. I have used Craft Customs and their quality is great and they are also very easy to deal with. They did my wooden Riviera wheel. I paid way more then $200.00 but then again I had a lot more work done...
  9. I don't either but KIA means "Killed In Action".
  10. I swapped my Reatta's wheel for a wooden Riviera wheel so have actually two tan extras. They are not perfect but are good "daily driver" grade. If you are interested you can email me at; lemke1044@aol.com
  11. Looks like it "marked it's territory" so you will have something to remember it by...
  12. I have mirrors as well...
  13. I have some for sale. The 1990 Headlight Switch for the Reatta is a one year only Reatta only part. If interested email me at; lemke1044@aol.com
  14. 89RDG wants me to do a "dyno" test. I have changed the oil and if 2Seater wants to meet up with me I would be happy to see what if any increase I have gained. 2seater you have my number, give me a call...
  15. The Cadillac Catera has a great looking chrome wheel but wrong bolt pattern as well. There was a set at Gibson's and I asked to try one, took it out to the parking lot and tried it on, no go...
