There was no question to not cut my rubber seals. They were not in the best shape. The new ones fit pretty well. I don't know how easy it would be to remove the glass and try to preserve the rubber. Your car may be a little different than the GTC. I was very nervous about breaking the glass, but as ...

We laid the razor knife on the glass and cut the seal away on the outside of the car. Then the glass just popped away easily. I needed both the seals replaced and the chrome surrounds refinished so I wasn't too worried about damage. The surrounds are very fragile pieces and they also need to be trea...

Cutting the rubber first and pushing from the inside worked very easily for my car. I was careful to store the glass on edge after removal. I had heard stories of warping, don't know if they are true or not. Putting the glass in was tough. Wrapping the rubber around the glass first and then trying t...

Since you are getting fuel, at this point I would change out the spark plugs. Who knows how fouled out they are at this point. As you may know, cleaning them may not be enough. Put some new in.

205/70x14 is not the correct size for the GTC. Originally 205x14 which I think is around an 82 aspect ratio. The 70 series looks a little awkward on the car as it does not quite fill out the wheelwells fully.

Stebro was $2300 which included the 4 downpipes from the headers to the center sections. $95 to ship. $150 to paint black which I decided against.

I bought Stebro but have not installed it yet. It was delivered exactly as promised within 3 weeks of ordering it.

I am closer to 10 grand for my car. It is the same as everything else though. Once you start rechroming, anything you haven't done will really stand out.

The movement from sanity to lunacy will occur before you realize it and once that has happened there is no turning back. It is like a magnetic attraction. You are being drawn closer and closer all the time.

I had correspondence with Joe Alphabet in the early 1980's regarding 250 parts. His business was Alpha Design located in Huntington Beach. I have seen his name appear here and there since then. I still have his phone number and address from a long time ago. If you need it, email me and I will forwar...

Cork has done my knock offs and also my alloy wheels and I am very satisfied with the results. He is also a great guy to deal with.

I think that the 275 is the same as the 330GTC which has the 32 size. There are also strraight eared and angled eared knockoffs. I have the straight eared version for my car which has a convex center with prancing horse.
