Honored

So my 14 year old son and garage assistant decided to upgrade his car on Xbox Forza 3 to a 1980 spider. He got to pick the color to match mine and races it around, even with the low hp.

Re: negative camber

Thanks for the suggestions. I dont have external compressor so I might try it with the pita internal rental one. The dremel is tempting tho a mistake would be even more costly. I spoke to my local Fiat mechanic, who's been specializing in Fiats for 30 years and is actually from Italy so that's alway...

My car now has pretty decent negative camber. I haven't taken it in yet for an alignment as we're still getting snow in...

Re: Credit Card Fraud

Was there anything that would help to identify the purchaser? ie. all parts were specific to model year or something. Forum covers pretty wide area of members. Maybe somebody notices online guy selling car with the specific parts list on ebay or craigs. you never know what someone might spot

Re: Wing glass retainer glue

I use 'the last glue'. bought it from vendor display at auto show for $20. seemed expensive but the other $8 products i've tried all failed so i thought i'd give it a shot. Clean surfaces and apply small amount. Bonded instantly. I dont use the latch very often but it hasnt budged.
