  1. Does anyone know the nomenclature/numbers on the round "bulb/tube" for the sign please. Hesitant to take sign apart before ascertaining if a "bulb" is available...... Thanks !
  2. OK - I still wondered....the recycler I called was run/owned by.....females :). They quoted me $0.25 a pound or about $5 - 6.00 a wheel. I just decided to call another recycling yard.........depending on the true weight of course....@ a $0.55 quote per pound I imagine the 4 wheels are ..... really ..... probably worth $45.00 to $50.00. Mr. Finn, With that return you could take the Mrs. to dinner more that a couple of times I would think
  3. Why for how come cans are worth something, and the wheels not ? Many years ago I remember a fellow that worked for me took several wheels to a recycler, and received 22-23.00 each......is there magnesium or something maybe mixed in with the aluminum lowering the value ?
  4. Good Grief Charlie Brown.......or Jim Excellent tree display for sure. The Arbor Day Foundation would probably find the picture interesting..... I was just holding on to the wheels for when I traveled close to the recycler - I was under the impression that the metal had some value - Wrooooong. I will put a "for free" posting on the NextDoor site.
  5. For some reason I have been hoarding 4 ..... 90 model wheels for years. I thought when I had time I would trailer them to a recycling location 30 miles away. I called the recycler, and out of curiosity asked what they would bring cash wise.....answer was $0.25 a pound........Is that right ? Any other suggestions of what I can do with them please? Thanks !
  6. Well Folks, Years ago (maybe 2012-14) I picked up a SS badge for a very reasonable price (don't really remember the price but it was "cheap") because I had bought a SS and with intentions of keeping it. My thoughts were that even then it was supposedly rare.....and if I did have the misfortune of some front end damage I would not have to hunt one down. And besides, I do have right much Reatta memorabilia. Since the topic was being discussed anyway, I was just curious as to what one was ..... really ..... worth these days.
  7. Hi Folks, Just out of curiosity ...... Jim, Barney, or other knowledgeable member/s, what is a reasonable (if can be found) price one should pay for SS hood emblem/ornament please? And Thanks !
  8. Wow and Thank You Padgett. I may have to close this thread due to something out of my control.... I will write you a PM to explain Nic
  9. Wow Y-JonFan.....Thank you as well - you might have brought something up. The rear bow has always been very difficult/hard to engage - that is the pins in the bow with whatever is in the "top cover" or receivers that engage. I always have heard something like a solid click. However at some point within the last couple of years I do remember seeing a small amount of daylight in the right inside corner part of the bow seal/gasket after raising the top. I lowered and re raised the top and did not see it again. I will definitely take another look at this as well - that is again raise and lo
  10. Thanks for the suggestion 28 Chrysler . will take your advice
  11. Thanks Padgett - we have had that type of weather-rain conditions here as well, but I think afterwards the leaks / "pooling" happened...
  12. Thank you both Gentlemen........Barney, I am fairly sure I understood your explanation on the channel drain running down to the tube......I took an air gun and blew (about 90-100 lbs.) into the tube where the tube disappears or exits the trunk, and with the action I did not feel any back pressure/resistance. It seemed/sounded that the air was escaping or exiting............somewhere. However I could not locate where the drain/s in front of the rear wheel exit the cars wheel well ? Barney could you provide a general/approximate area or what to look for please? And Thanks Padget -
  13. I posted the below on the Journal and had some views, but no help and or suggestions - can anyone here offer any please? Thanks, Nic When it poured heavily not to long ago the carpet behind the seats was soaked - actually somewhat standing water ! I wrote Barney and he described/suggested dropping the top, locating the 2 drain channels on both sides and blowing them out with a compressor. I had no problem finding the channels and the drains at the end of the channels but when blowing they seemed clear or open. I have dried the carpet/s well and

  15. Hmmmm....Padgett - In your link - not sure what you mean Sir......... is the little silver thingie at the bottom of the volt meter and or plug an on - off switch or just a electrical contact? And if so will it fit the glove box dimensions please? If so I will buy.
  16. Only one GM dealer near me or on this side of town - I called and fellow didn't even know the car and then when explained he told me to old.....:) . I am going to try another dealer. But I knew nothing about resistance codes....I will copy/print and carry with me... Thanks all.... and Mr. Padgett
  17. Barney, I found this one on Amazon which looks effective and nice, But it "sadly" does not give dimensions. It gives package dimensions of 6.2 inches.....soooo 6" or a little less maybe ??? How wide is yours please? I actually think I asked you about this before (when you originally posted), and may have bought one like yours from Wal Mart...But don't know what I did with it if I did ???

    KEY/S

    Good Morning Folks ! I have never lost a key to an automobile before.....But nothing is more constant than change - sadly in this case I have lost - misplaced the extra keys to two of the Reatta (actually both sets of keys to the 90 coupe, but after a week I heard something clicking around in the washer and have found one of the sets...those keys and fob are currently in a bowl of rice to dry out). Being that they or the ignition key has an electronic do dodday on the leg of the key how do I go about getting a replacement while keeping the "combination" o
  21. What are they going for now days Barney....generally and especially the gray ones please?
  22. I posted looking for a near mint gearshift console cover for my 1990 Select Sixty about a year ago and did not receive any replies. Still in need. I left something with some detrimental plastic substance on the cover right where the coin slots are located and it was damaged - kind of melted. Not broken but sure would like to find a nice one.....fingers are crossed
