  2. 1989 8V red TC for sale in St Paul Minnesota at an auction Dec 30th 4pm. The listing is on the website Estatesales.net It is an early build without the plastic wood trim Luther Auctions Lot 150A https://lutherauctions.hibid.com/catalog/193833/12-30-2019---new-years-fine-art-auction--4pm/?q=TC 651) 770-6175 https://www.estatesales.net/MN/North-Saint-Paul/55109/2441262
  3. There is a white 1990 automatic with black interior and black rag top listed for sale on Facebook. It is in the Group; Chrysler TC by Maserati
  4. 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
  5. Where are you located? Could you post engine compartment, opera windows and drivers seat pictures

  10. Correct There is nothing like a nice custom touch on a newly wrinkle coated and restored valve cover
  11. There is an allpar article on this tape deck that describes repairs. https://www.allpar.com/stereo/Infinity-II/index.html
  12. John, Could you post a picture of the finished install? thanks Larry
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. The back side will need to be removed, but I think that would look good. I will add this to my to do list.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. I am going to redye my bordeaux steering wheel. the web page is: http://www.leatherique.com/steering-wheels.html I made me think that there might be a possibility for a black 89 steering wheel option. it will take a little work but, you could redye the ginger leather black. Leatherique has an number of articles on redyeing leather. Going to a darker color is easier than going to a lighter color. A Dairyland SDAC member redyed his ginger steering wheel recently. The pictures are below. I think it looks nice. Before After

  23. This picture is from the web page of the Swamp Fox Car Club located in Florence SC The site says this 1989 16-valve is owned by Ray and Bonnie Sue Bihary Not an original color, but I like it
  24. There, are sets of 40 lug nuts are available on Ebay. This is a TC item I have not seen on Ebay before. I am not selling them. I bought a set and am glad someone else was able to buy a set. Forty (40) Chrysler OEM lug nuts from the Shelby Automobiles plant in Whittier California. These are take-off parts from brand new Dodge vehicles that were being converted into Shelby vehicles. Will fit other models from 1980's and 1990's http://www.ebay.com/itm/Qty-40-LUG-NUTS-Chrysler-LeBaron-Maserati-TC-Voyager-New-Yorker-GTS-GTC-MoPar-/252320887802?hash=item3abf7f33fa:g:13oAAOSwe7BWzQpm http://www.ebay.com/itm/Qty-40-Shelby-CSX-LUG-NUTS-1987-88-Dodge-Turbo-2-2-Chrysler-Shadow-ES-OEM-MoPar-/252320887808?hash=item3abf7f3400:g:p~gAAOSwG-1WukFD http://www.ebay.com/itm/Qty-40-LUG-NUTS-Dodge-Spirit-Dynasty-Caravan-Rampage-400-600-ES-RT-Ramcharger-/252320887811?hash=item3abf7f3403:g:Ub4AAOSwll1WzQpb
  25. I finally added the plastic wood trim to my cup holder. I think it looks nice. I cut the trim out of a radio bezel using a fine tooth craft saw (picture 4209). I only installed the top three screws. #8 one inch sheet metal screws were used with a half inch OD #8 washer (picture 4190). The bottom screw needs a magnetic screw driver or patience, neither of which I could find today. There is also a 1/4 inch off white nylon space epoxied behind the cup holder at each screw location. Each spacer is 1/2" OD by .252" ID and 1/4" tall. all these parts can be found at your local Ace Hardware The finished product is shown in the last two pictures . now I just need to put my dash board together.
