  1. Do you have the rivet type studs or just the screw in kind?
  2. Do you recommend the screw in studs or is there a rivet type stud replacement? Thanks Rick
  3. I used them for my son’s car. They worked fine. I also moved the seatbelt attachment points on the tunnel and rockers back 3 inches. I moved the seat risers back 3/4”. He is 6’6” and now fits in the car. It was a big help.
  4. Where do you buy screw in studs?
  5. The light colored clip is original. The dark clip is a screw on type. What other options do I have other than a screw on clip at this point? The car is already painted. On a side note I installed your 1 pc headliner and it looks great! Thanks in advance, Rick
  6. Thanks for the input guys!
  7. I need to install window trim clips for the front windshield and rear window trim. I’m not 100% sure of orientation. Also I only have original pins on the A pillars of the front window. So here are my questions: 1. Do I have the original clip in the picture installed correctly? 2. Is the new screw clip (shown beside original) positioned correctly? Do you position it all the way down on the inner ledge? 3. How many clips across roof edge on front window and rough locations? 4. How many clips up quarter panels edges and across roof edge on rear rear and rough locations? Thanks in advance for your help, Rick
  8. We finally got to enjoy the moment of hearing the motor crank for the first time! What a great moment! IMG_7306.MOV
  9. Just an update. Checked all the wires and replaced plugs. Must have had one breaking down. Instantly started running better but still a bit sluggish When punching it or climbing a hill. Checked the base timing at idle and was about 9-1/2 BTDC. Looked at my old setup notes And noticed I had base timing at 12. Changed the timing and bang, the torque and pull at the top end returned. Maybe the distributor was not tight and vibrated around a bit not sure? Thanks for everyone’s input. Rick
  10. I will take a look. Thanks
  11. I determined the intake bolts were extremely loose and torqued them in sequence to recommended torque. Most of the bolts were turned at least one full turn. I was amazed this could happen. Anyway, drained oil and currently have no water in oil. Will drive some and check again later. However, I still have a performance issue I need some advice on. The engine hesitates severely and hiccups when you dump the accelerator to speed up quickly but will run smooth if you ease up to the same point gradually. It runs smooth if I maintain the speed even at high RPMs. This just started recently. Thoughts or suggestions? Specs are: 351 W 4 bbl 4160c 600 CFM Holley carb Rebuilt engine .030 over Stock build with mild cam ( what engine builder told me) Currently use 93 octane gas Stock distributor with dual vac advance Replaced points with Petronix electronic kit Factory P/S, P/B, and A/C Thanks again for help, Rick
  12. Congrats! It’s a special moment when you hear it fire for the first time. Gives me chill bumps!
