    im mainly looking to make it look lower without sacrificing ride quality. 2" i guess makes it pretty harsh.

    Looking for anything getrag related, minus the getrag.

    OGTS is getting some in soon, and I might dip into the old hooker fund to treat myself. OXYMORONIC? perhaps

    Before I opt for the conversion kit, i thought I would ask here if anyone might have a modified driveshaft, or other goodies that make the swap perfect.

    Thank you kindly

    Need some junk stock calipers for cores.

    found some nice new ATE brand calipers, not old stock from 40 yrs ago. Well there is a huge core charge, and need some cores. Ones on car now still work, not seized, replacing for looks and full resto.

    I definitely prefer the ATE over the ones being sold nowadays.

    My Buddy Steve In Green bay here, who bought the GT in Atlanta with the help of Gene is in need of a front bumper bracket. square tuber thingy inside front bumper. his is rusted pretty bad and beyond repair.

    Please help him out. He is a much older fella so he doesnt do forums much.

    He is half done with paint and body, ill post pics for him soon.

    Tis Opel Season

    Sorry for all the posts lately fellas, but as the title states........ its that time of year.

    I did not want to pay the high retail prices for an automatic driveshaft to go get butchered, so here I am.

    Lemme know what you might need otherwise cash will work.

    Also, I have a brand new Redline Weber 38 in box if anyone is interested. $250 shipped

    Why not buy a spare grungy, dirty one off an Opel member and either have it chromed, or powder coated in "Nearly Chrome"

    Diff. cover

    JJ, you are welcome to the stock cover w/ drain plug, I will take pictures later. The resonator covers 90 % of it, paint it chrome and be done.

    It wasn't necessary on mine, it depends on the pressure plate.
