Re: Installing Hydroboost

I'll have some pics up as I do the swap to help people out, but it has been below freezing here and no heat in the garage so I'm not in a hurry to start tearing things apart.

Re: Non A/C Heater Box What Is Missing

there are also some vent block offs for the two vents on the outside ends of the dash. You don't really need them but those vents no longer have duck work to them with a heat only set up.

Re: Wagon Rear Bumper Fillers?

Yeah I think its best to keep the bumper covering those little bumps on the back of the elky, thats why I've never liked the roll pans on them.

I fiberglassed over a stock housing and then cut out holes for my gauges, just the run of the mill 6.

Re: Wagon Rear Bumper Fillers?

I have to say I love what Jack did, and I've droolled over the pics for a while. If you don't want to cut the bumpers you can just collapse the bumper shocks and remove the filler pieces. Then push the bumpers up and in towards the body, that is what I did with my El Camino. I didn't feel up to cutt...

Re: Installing Hydroboost

Well I was able to order the hoses at the parts store, pretty easy the guy knew what I was looking for (doesn't seem to happen often enough). I was looking at the car tonight and I started to think I may add a line lock and adjustable prop valve as long as I have all the brake lines pulled apart. An...

Installing Hydroboost

Well I haven't seen too much about the hydroboost systems online and I figured whatever I find out could help someone else with their swap! I'm going to be upgrading the front and rear brakes to 12" discs in the near future so I wanted to redo my braking system so it could make the most of the upgra...

Re: Worst Wiring Mess Ever

I don't have a picture but my wiring just all goes through the hole in the firewall, then some goes to the front of the car for the lights, and the other bundle goes across the firewall behind the engine to the battery and starter and other things. The wiring for the dash just goes up into the dash ...

Re: AFTERMARKET WIRING HARNESS

I used a fuse block that came with 20 circuits and a ton of wiring. I got it off of ebay about 5 years ago and it worked great. All the wires have the circuit label printed onto them every foot or so. I want to say it was called EZ2Wire or something, whatever it was the cost was great. I think I pai...

Re: Kick Panels

Nothing in a G-body from the factory had a speaker there. You can buy aftermarket kick panels that are designed to have a speaker there, they do however stick out a ways and your parking brake pedal needs to be moved or bent. If you know how you can fiberglass your own. I have made two sets for my c...

Re: Steering Gear Options

The Monte SS had one and it was 2.5 turns lock to lock or less. I've had one in my car and it worked great, and really made the steering feel better. I'm not sure what you'd have to do to get one, around here the parts stores can't figure out which one to order anymore so I am back to using a low ra...
