    A/C what was your choice

    Bob, you know me, I kept it stock with a restoration of my original system but in this restoration I am upgrading to R134 so it means a different POA and Expansion valves. I used "Old Air Products" for my parts and rebuild of old parts. rob

    A/C what was your choice

    Bob. I installed the Classic Auto Air system into my non-A/C '70 4-speed about 7 years ago. It was my first major project and it turned out well - works great and is less obtrusive than the stock system. At the time, I also researched and considered Vintage Air but Classic offered several advantages - not sure if anything has changed since. Unfortunately, I did not take chronological photos of the installation (which I have done on every project since then) but I did create an after-the-fact photo journal on Photo Bucket which can still be accessed at this LINK.
  4. What have you done with your A/C. Stock or aftermarket and would you go that way again?

    Rear control arm bushes

    When I did mine before I installed them in the rear end housing I put them in the freezer for a while to shrink them enough to make them easier to install.

    Happy Easter

    Happy Easter everyone
  8. Thanks Rob, I thought it was strange to see them in the pic because I never seen them before on any flap. Granted God only knows the stories behind my parts cars. lol When I get in there on Mon or Tues I will give it a better look. I still am thinking 6 or 7 because I don't want them to sag when I am done. lol Thanks for the help Rob and Paul
  9. Willie, In that picture it looks to me like 4 staples and 2 (two) of those #2 clips. It looks like another one around the 11:00 o-clock position. I can tell you though, when I replaced my original inner fender wells neither of them had those clips, only staples. My Monte was built in June of 1970 in Baltimore. rob
  10. Holly Molly, you have a lot of patience.
  11. If you wanna do it the really difficult way (like I do with everything), drill a tiny hole every inch in steel skirts and stitch safety wire through-in both directions.
  12. Thank You Paul, now I have to check every car closely to look for them. I really never seen them before. The work never ends... lol Thanks
  13. Here ya go. Plus the staple spec for those of us that have the "optional" steel skirt.
  14. No, lol just never seen that clip there before. The parts cars I have, that have the pad on them (most are missing) all have some staples not all in the same place but I haven't seen that clip before. Thanks

    Happy Easter

    Happy Easter
  16. Really?? Ya gonna make me flip through every page of the assembly guide?
  17. Thanks Paul, on my parts cars that's not any where close to what I have. What is that, a clip in the #2 and top left? Thanks
  18. Thanks Charlie, I am guessing around 6 or 7 per side. Hopefully I can get to it Mon or Tues.

    Wheel, believe it or not I purchased my hood hinges from Ames Pontiac Parts. The ones for the 70-72 gto has the cold rivets just like the originals. Work great!!! Highly recommend!

    Rear control arm bushes

    Ah ok, thanks for that. All bushes the same then. Once these are done along with the lower arms the car should feel great.

    Rear control arm bushes

    FWIW, I looked rear suspension service up under NAPA ProLink. It shows the same bushings listed for ALL the rear control arms, both upper & lower. Listed quantity for the job is '4' required for upper & '4' required for lower. They've been known to be wrong before though EDIT: Looked on Rockauto, looks like they are saying the same, all 8 will be the same part number for upper & lower..

    Hood hinges broken...

    Wheel. I bought my set from Rock Auto. These where a AMD (Auto Metal Direct) part. These are the stock style. I've had them on my Monte for 2years now with no issues so far.
