  1. I don't know if there are any left but check this out at V8Buick dot com http://www.v8buick.com/showthread.php?227318-Update-70-72-A-body-LED-Tailights Edit: adding link Here is another option, but seems spendy https://digi-tails.com/buick/skylark-gran-sport/1972
  2. Here is the page from the manual, step 8 is to install in reverse order...
  3. ya, I got one from tangerine, said he was a member since 2010
  4. I do not have access to my 72 today and I cant remember how many screws there are. I do remember I had 1 that was warped from age/heat or what ever reason. it is a tight fit, maybe you could try another forum, I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post it here...

  6. I wondered the same thing, but I took for granted they both from 1980 when I read "they must have been garage kept from 1980!"
  7. Looks like the second brake line set they sent is going to work out well. Fuel line not so much... im sure the mustang sets drop right in.
  8. I'm sure everyone else thought it (it, being your moniker) was in reference to Harley Earl, I did! Which seems acceptable as well...
  9. Here is another one that I don't see very often...
  10. If the "other guy" doesn't want it, put it on my list, I wrecked mine on disassembly...
  11. Don't advertise that you have parts until I have everything I need...
  12. Here is my car on a t-shirt for sale on Ebay. I had this guy make me a shirt, then the next thing ya know I see it for sale on the evilbay. I know it is my car because I made the front license plate. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1972-White-Buick-Gran-Sports-GS-Custom-Hot-Rod-SS-T-Shirt-72-Muscle-Car-Tees-/360455704450?pt=US_Mens_Tshirts&var=&hash=item92b1567f4d
  13. Well that is the problem... Inline tube thought they were for my 4 door super, once they had my pictures they knew what was wrong. He wouldn't or couldn't tell me what they should fit, my hope is someone will look at the photos, ask for more angles of photos and think they will work on their car. Then hopefully they would want to buy the full set of brake and fuel lines for $100 + shipping. I get my required set at the full price and they get their set for less than half price. from the way the fuel line is bent it looks like it was on the passenger side.
  14. So I ordered my lines from inline tube and they came wrong, After a little back and forth, Chuck from Inline found the correct ones for my model 52. he says they are the same for the small body. I had to pay an additional $100 bucks to get the correct lines. they are going to work perfectly. I will try to attach pictures of both my old lines and the wrong ones that were sent to me. Inline tube does not want them back. if someone can use them make me an offer and I will send them to you! All fuel and brake lines Here are pictures of my original lines and the wrong ones they sent me.
  15. a picture is worth a thousand words...
  16. Do you have any pictures of your scale models? I would love to see them
  17. A car dealer was advertising on a local tv station, I asked them if they had the picture in the ad and if they could send it to me... they did! it was taken in 1953 with a row of new 54's in Fairmont Minnesota.
  18. Dextron VI I looked at was full synthetic. I found some dexron/Mercon at autozone. Another post on this site said it was what to use. mines not up and running yet, so I can't say for sure...

  22. So what do you use or how do you clean one that has been sitting for who knows how long? I found this on the HAMB, http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/oil-bath-air-filter-cleaning-tips.750177/ I'm guessing it is the way to go?
