Replaced the rear wheel studs only to discover that. The extended length also requires them to be finer thread for more tensile strength. Now have two different sets of lug nuts front and rear. Aarrrrrrh.😞

Coffee and Cars this morning from 8:30 until 10:00 - met a guy that has a Red 69 GT however did not have it with him -it is however for sale for $11,000.00. I have no details or contact information but suggested that he list it and put it on the forum as well. I also painted my muffler black, instead of silver, to blend in and changed out the plastic bumper ends that have the license plate light bulbs - found out that my bulbs don't illuminate so began that project this afternoon. The little plastic part that holds the bulb on the left hand side would not stay in place which I cured with a little glue and I dont think the current ground is making a good connection. Really interesting that they put the ground on the bumper instead of just running the wire all the way to the bulb housing and grounding it there. Just another one of those little things that slipped by me that I will be done with tomorrow. I still have a list of those little things and will continue to plug away until they are all done or -Will I. Finish.............Cheers..............................

The rear like back seat windowsnif it had back seat not rear back windscreen
Like this? The 1971 and newer Opel Gt had these windows opening. The 1970 and before don’t. But sometimes past owners might switch them around.

It really has 2,874 miles on it? You should start a introduction thread where you can introduce yourselves to this website and show some pictures of your cars

Here is a link:

In my boredom I did some welding today. Nitrous bungs in a Cannon 2-bbl Holley intake.
