    '85 and down front seats: what to do

    Thanks for updating this. I'm hoping the covers work out for you as I want to re-cover the seats in my 84 too.

    90 245 stereo install - amp bypass - leftover wires?

    Thanks. I did figure it out. Crutchfield supplied the Metra 70-1119 so I used that for the main functions and front speakers as you said. Then I connected to the square gray male plug for the rear speakers. Sounds like the 70-1120 may have been a cleaner install. No hacking, just unused wires...

    90 245 stereo install - amp bypass - leftover wires?

    Installing a new stereo in the silver machine and I have the Crutchfield instructions and so far so good Except there's no mention of what happens with these wires here: <a href=""> Do they just hang loose until if I ever get around to taking the amp out?

    New Oil Leak — 91 240

    I agree with dl2424gt. I just did this on my 90 245 by removing cam cap 5. Except I serviced the PCV system first! How is your PCV?

    1983 GLT refresh…this one wasn’t ready for the crusher

    Looking good. Also, do you have a spare Siruis wheel or maybe even two you would sell? I bent one and it's too bad to completely straighten.

    I started to order them today and found a set of four shocks, front and rear for $99.00 on eBay. Then this listing on their website for $49.00 each. for front inserts. Are these the same strut inserts? Where did you order yours from? eBay or their website? Thanks again.

    240 Swedish car parts front struts review

    Would you care to do an update on these? I need new front struts on the '90 silver 245. I have the 15a plates on and 1.5 cut coils at the front. Do these inserts take well to slightly lowered suspension? Thanks.

    240 HVAC tubing source?

    The vacuum tube from the manifold back through the firewall to the heater box that controls the vents, has somehow shrunk on my 91 240. So I think it best I replace the whole length. Local Hose and Hydraulics don't have tubing that small. Anyone know of a source or even the actual internal...
