    Wires ties.



    Also, it would be a good idea to replace the entire fuel line with metal fuel line, 5/16" or 3/8", with just some rubber line at the tank and in the engine compartment.

    Yeah, but that's too easy. ;-)

    I like the stock look.

    I scoured the cars in the wrecking yard for them but you can also go overboard and use spark plug wire loom separators.

    Past few years I've been pretty partial to these for routing any hard lines.

    Hmmm, won't link directly. I'm talking about the 'snap-in plastic routing clamps'.

    Looking for Opel GT Windshield, Door Glass, and Rear Window with Defroster

    Picked up the body from Keith on Saturday, and now it's time to put it all back together prior to the Nashville event in August. I'll post pics when I get home. Looks amazing!!!

    I've found a source for a new windshield, but I'm looking for some new door windows or some that are in great shape. Anyone have some or know where I can get them?

    I'm also looking for a rear window with a defroster that works.

    Heater Box Flapper Vent Foam

    I'm cleaning up the heater box and want to replace the foam on the cable actuated flappers.

    Was thinking about getting some craft foam sheets from Walmart and seeing how that works.

    What else have you all used?

    It should be UV resistant, closed cell foam. I think I bought mine from McMaster.

    Thanks Jeff, lots of options on their page. Any idea which one you went with?

    I don't remember how thick the stuff was or how compliant it needs to be in order for the flappers to close properly. I have LOTS of foam and other materials left over, some that I used and some that I did not. I usually just go nuts and order a bunch of stuff that I think will work and then try them all and use the best one. This is not the most economical route but it makes it so you get the best job technically. That is exactly what just happened to me on my front brake upgrade. I now have a set of $25 10" long stainless steel flex lines that I don't need because I thought I could do the job better with 9" and that turned out to be the case.

    Oh, I forgot to mention that Goop is probably a good adhesive to use for this application if you buy foam without an adhesive backing. No backing opens up a whole new world of available material.
