I got the car as a barn find three years ago. Since then, all new suspension bushings and brakes, from the pedal rubber to the rear drums and everything in between, including new booster & M/C. I know all about that access hole. As I noted, I was admiring the ease with which the headlights open and close -- they did not get that way by themselves! All of it my labor, the exception being new sheet metal in the usual places, and paint.If you haven’t already replaced your master cylinder and brake booster do it now. There is an access port behind the driver headlight bucket that makes it breeze. Without that access port it takes a lot longer to install.
Probably. I have another one but it's kind of a medium brown so it certainly doesn't match. The white one is brighter than the stock interior but it's a much closer match. Besides, I only drive from one seat.Quite an upgrade, Don.
Are you keeping the passenger side stock?

My GTs spent several years stored in my barn before I moved to a place with a garage. I’ve had to fight with mice a lot. They did a lot of destruction in my GTs when I didn’t drive for more than a week. I left for a month and came back to find no less than 6 mice living in spare tire area. They ate most of the rear wiring harness and almost caused a fire when I started the car.I discovered that in the last two weeks, mice have found the Manta. The moth balls had seemed to work. Maybe they are too old. So off to the barn with some traps and peanut butter. Not good.
Interesting list of ingredients. Who knew that mice hated bloody mint! :ugh:I use Shake-Away Mouse Repellent -- a packet up front and a packet in the spare tire area. Have not had rodent issues in any of my cars stored in the detached garage. I do have mice in the garage but they have stayed out of the cars. Available almost everywhere -- Big Box, local hardware, etc.
Active ingredients: Dried Blood (5%), Spearmint Oil (1%), Peppermint Oil (1%), and Rosemary Oil (0.5%). Inactive ingredients: Limestone (90%), Hydrogenated Soybean oil (2.5%), and Crystalline Silica (inert) (less than 0.1%).
The mothballs had worked for 6 years. I couldn't sit for long in the car so they were strong. I checked the car just before OctOpelFest and they were not in the car. I knew they were in the barn having seen one run along the rafters. When I did a brake job on my pickup a few weeks ago, I found a grey furry thing in one of the calipers. They just have been good so I've let them hang out.I discovered that in the last two weeks, mice have found the Manta. The moth balls had seemed to work. Maybe they are too old.

Yea, that should be an easy sale...if you lived in San Diego, rather than Regina. I have been "allowed" to use my wife's side of the garage for up to a few weeks at a time during the winter, IF there was a Chinook blowing (longer during summer months), but Calgary winters got NOTHING on Regina's. :yup:I’m still trying to work out how to convince the wife that the Opel GT should be in the garage and not her car. Also did a trade for my 96 Ford Explorer for a 07 Pontiac G6. Showed the guy and his kid the GT, they were amazed especially when I flipped the head lights.
