    Very impressed with your 74 restoration. I don't have nearly the skills you have but hope to have a nice looking and good driving 74 in the not too distant future. Don't plan to go to the lengths you've gone to but you never know......just fun getting to know he car and determining the rust and potential. Love to learn to weld, that will come soon.

    Gary,

    I replied on the visitor board on your question about the trunion bushing as I was not sure what car you meant given I have a 74 spider, 83 CA gtv6(owned since new0, and a 164S. Reading your profile it looks like it was the spider. The trunnion bushing change turned out well. I used a poly on the to tran connection and OEM for the two bushings to the body . I had to go to a machine shop to get the two 'to body' bushings out as I could not get them out. Putting the trunnion back in was a pain as I remember. It helps to have a second pair of hands. I also used poly on the trailing arms. It is stiff back there now. I thnik if I would do it again I would use OEM bushings on the trailing arms. I will probably to the front bushings when it warms up (I am in Utah). The car is really a pristine 74 which I got 8 years ago when I was living in CA. It has only 62K original miles on it and had been properly stored by the previous owner. I did have to replave the radiator and water pump as they were plugged. The original red paint still holds a shine. I plan to replace the seat vinyl with the Centerline kit as the drivers seat is worse for wear now, The car has about 82K on it now. Terry

    Dean,
    I do not have the spoilers off of the body yet and I understand they may not be easy to remove. I am not opposed to selling just the one piece but don't know when I could get the spoiler off. Mine are the plastic material and the body is an 80. It's not clear if they were added by a PO or if they were part of the original style.

    Let me see if I can get the spoiler off this weekend and I will get back to you. If you find another source in the mean time, no problem.

    This is the link to the car. It is an 80 body with a 74 title.

    Gary:
    I live in Tulsa, OK.

    Would you be willing to sell just the one side piece? If I could offer some personal advice, you would be better off selling the whole spoiler, if you do not plan on using it. I realize that I am cutting myself out of getting that piece that I need, but you would really do best selling the spoiler intact.

    Please lel me know what you would like to do. If you want to sell just the left hand piece, then let me know what you want for it, including shipping to zip code 74136.

    Kindest regards,
    Dean
