  1. This is the most recent windscreen I made for my TC. It is made from Lexan and engraved with the TC emblem. In this picture it is lit from below by a small led flash light taped to the bottom. The next thing to be done will be to attach LEDs that are powered from the car. Even cooler would be to use Adafruit LEDs that could be programmed to be red when you hit the brakes. The brackets for mine are covered in burgundy leather to match the interior. The ragtop can be put up without removing the windscreen. I made a second one if anyone is interested. The brackets could be covered in your choice of black or ginger leather. If you want Burgundy you would have to supply the leather. I used the leather that shrunk off the the large dash triangle for mine but I do not have any extra Burgundy leather. Cost $200
  2. Where are you located? Could you post engine compartment, opera windows and drivers seat pictures

  7. Correct There is nothing like a nice custom touch on a newly wrinkle coated and restored valve cover
  8. There is an allpar article on this tape deck that describes repairs. https://www.allpar.com/stereo/Infinity-II/index.html
  9. John, Could you post a picture of the finished install? thanks Larry
  10. There was a TC America article on this subject 3 or 4 years ago. basically spray "Black Satin" spray paint into a cup. Use a brush to fill in the letters, paint over the edges slightly. After the paint is dry use a 3M sponge with the green scrungy side to remove the paint that is dried. The scrungy sponge will leave a matte finish for the painted letters. I will find the article this week end, scan it and upload it. The only caveat I have is, the article suggests using steel wool. This I would not recommend. Steel fibers could embed in the stainless reflector. Any fibers from the steel wool embed will rust and leave spots.
  11. The plastic gear can be ordered through any GM parts department for 5 or 6 dollars. They should have the plastic gear in a couple of days after being ordered. I will post the part number when I get home tonight. If you get the plastic gear out of a junkyard, there is a 50% chance the gear you get will have a crack in it or teeth will be missing. You can not tell if the gear has a crack until all the old blue grease is removed. The same plastic gear in the TC can be found in late 80's and early 90's Cadillac's or Lincoln's with pull down motors on the trunk.
  12. I added tan extra wheel center cap to the oil filler cap. After dremeling off the back it was epoxied to the filler cap in place. Thanks for the idea TNtc. Larry
  13. The back side will need to be removed, but I think that would look good. I will add this to my to do list.
  14. The instrument cluster shown above came out of an early build 1989. In 89 there were only two instrument leather options. The Bordeaux cover came in a Royal Cabernet TC with a Bordeaux interior. The ginger interior TC's (yellow, Royal Cabernet and Red) had a brown leather covered instrument panel in 1989. The leather piece is attached to the plastic housing by four screws. You should be okay switching out your plastic wood covered instrument shroud with the early build shroud that does not have the plastic wood.
  15. I have modified the brake pedal and gas pedal on my TC to use the rubber pedal covers from a 2003 to 2005 Maserati. I purchased the rubber pads through eBay. The original picture I lifted off the web because I did not take a before picture. The TC brake pedal had to be cut and welded to accommodate the Maserati brake pedal. The TC plastic gas pedal was cut and modified to be able to use the Maserati rubber gas pedal. The metal plate was made to fit into the Maserati rubber gas pedal cover. The metal plate had bolts welded on that go through the TC plastic pedal. The plate was then bolted through the modified TC gas pedal. The modified gas pedal is actually 3/8" higher than the original, although I can not tell the difference. The TC gas pedal spring and attachment to the rod of the gas pedal was not modified.
