    Blue paint mark, 12 3/4 height and 4 5/8 OD. I removed them and mark them couple years ago from a rusty S/W.

    Only realized this week that the one I have is so crappy. Oh, and Harold, there's no need to bring a brown one on my behalf...I need a black one.

    At this stage, maybe I should see if the one I have can be modified by an upholsterer. The part that's worst is where it dips to go near the kick panels. Both sides are awful. It looks like it could possibly be trimmed and seamed to follow the edge of the floor pan, and then just a small piece added to come up the side and tuck under the kick panels.
    I'm also in need of the plywood piece that fits in the bottom of the passenger side front board. That piece would probably help with fitment on that side, though it looks like it would still be way off. My recollection is that they only used the board on the passenger side floor, correct? If anyone has one, that'd be handy as well.

    Thanks,
    Todd

    I'll see if I can locate the one from my wagon. No longer needed for obvious reasons.

    Lose the board and put a proper alloy navigators footrest in...y'know, something the hapless passenger can brace against...

    Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly and for the same reason.

    Fuel vent line clips - they are black and there are a few of them - that work unison

    Fuel vent line clips - they are black and there are a few of them - that work unison with the tabs on the body – I need a few. Please! I am a perfectionist!

    I need a few if any of you re-did your fuel vents in another way and do not need the originals.

    They help hold the hoses in place along the tabs.

    I hope to come to Carlisle on Friday

    I hope to bring some manta hubcaps, a manta wheel, and might show someone some goodies in a bag that I am unsure if I should keep or not?

    Jeff:

    It appears from Pete's latest information that the 12 3/4" springs are the ones we want. We will take them. Thanks to everyone for all their input!

    Perhaps Opelbits spring rate chart could be updated for rear spring rates too?
