    well guys I don\'t think there is much left to go through

    well I knew some of the ducts under the dash were missing, when I got under there to fix it I found that none of the ducts were connected properly so I got that all straightened out! (plus replacing the stuff that was missing)

    next project will be gauges, and going through the wiring under the dash to make sure that isn't screwed up somewhere (I'm sure it probably is because everything else has been)...

    after that I gonna start on treating rust before any of it actually turns into rott. need to do the floor boards, and the under carriage (don't think I'm going to do the frame). that will take care of the body which is my major concern.

    on a side note, the latch for the glove compartment spins, and I'm wondering if anybody can tell me how to tighten it so it will stay in place???

    My glovebox latch had the same problem - I made a little wood shim and pounded it under the latch on the inside - it's been like that for a little over a year now with no problems. a little butch, but it worked[​IMG]

    Special thanks to those lost from IAFF Locals 94 and 854 - You shall never be forgotten

    a little wood shim??? LOL I was hoping for a better answer! [​IMG] I was hoping somebody actually knew how to tighten the thing (like maybe an adjustement or something???)

    if not I tell ya what I'll definately be trying your little wood shim thing. - and I'll stop making fun of your little wood shim! [​IMG][​IMG]

    Re: well guys I don\'t think there is much left to go through

    Here it is for a mid 80's GM car, it should be similar.

    "1) remove the two 7mm screws holding assy to door.

    2) rotate the rear part of the assy (not where the knob is) 25 degrees
    counter clockwise. If you are looking down, you will be looking through the
    screw slot that was originally closest to the pass door.

    3) Through this slot, stick a heavy duty paper clip end in and push down on
    the first key lever. You will need to perform this same step another four
    times or so as the key assy and the receiver progressively move apart.

    Installation is the reverse of the above. My receiver was defective not
    allowing the knob to spring back and forth freely. I picked one up at a
    junk yard today with a matching key."

    hey, thanks a ton Dorian...

    gotta add one more this as one more thing to my to-do list... LOL

    actually it is kinda nice because I don't seem to have more things going out so I feel like I am making some kind of headway!

    Well, your welcome, I hope trucks are similar. I know mine doesn't lock, so no key. You'd think it would be a simple screw on/screw off proposition wouldn't you?

    well hey, you know these engineer's can't make anything as easy as that should be simple you know??? what'd you expect when they made these things for that many years? that they were actually going to make everything as simple as they could have??? [​IMG]
