  1. My 91 conv was running hot last year. Had a bit of slight leak on one end of the radiator. Pulled it out and found lots of debris between the radiator and a/c condenser. Probably the cause of the running hot, but recored the radiator anyway. Now runs like it should.
  2. Three is the correct answer for the number of AVX's built. One coupe, one convertible and one T-top. So this is now confusing, how many are actually out there built? Did someone other than the "factory" build the others or are there really only 3?
  3. Sorry can't help with adding cup holders in the car, I don't allow any food or drinks in my Convertible. Don't even know where i could make somehting fit.
  4. Might not work on an Avanti, but when I owned the stripping shop ( blasted with plastic media or walniut shells and fine glass bead at low pressure).we used to unbolt the body from the frame of a full frame car. Lift the body straight up and took 2 inch black pipe cut 11 1/2 inches long and used 12 inch 1/2 inch bolts to run up through the black pipe. Stood the pipe up and then dropped the body back down to be hovering over the frame at each body bolt location. The bolts were run up tight and the body was one with the frame again. This did two things for us, gave us a rolling cart to move t
  5. Soda blasting has its own set of issues, you must wash the soda dust that has impregnated the metal with soapy water to remove that film. Otherwise the overlay of primer/paint has no bond. Years ago they were using that method of blasting to remove the paints and primers from GM, Ford & Chrylser cars. I got to reblast hundreds of vehicles to stop the peeling paintand then be repainted. The orignal blasting prices the soda guys were charging was just a tad less than what I was charging. Once the cars had issues, they all (the soda blaster companies) closed up and disappeared.Soda blasting w
  6. Sorry I missed you, just spent the month of Feb in Tucson at the KOA RV park sitting in the warm sun thinking I wish I had my Avanti Convertible down there with me...
  7. Plastic and walnut will remove the light surface rust, but not actually clean the metal to white clean rust free. I also used to use extremely fine glass bead at low pressure to totally remove the rust. Low pressure to us was 15 to 30psi being shot out of a 1/2 inch nozzel at high high volumn. It would kind of wash the substrait and not dig in or harm the surface material. I had a 800 cfm compressor that was able to run 4 blast hoses at once. if your rust is light surface, using a abrasive pad of some type to remove the loose rust and then using a rust converter, navel Jelly type or POR-1
  8. How about calling the logistics company general phone number asking to talk to the person who is supposed to be working there? I would be questioning a lot before allowing one of my cars to leave my home without a pile of money on my table.
  9. You didn't put a maybe, depending on how it is constructed. I own a Tesla and would look but no firm answer to this survey question until more info is presented.
  10. I used Window Motor World in Florida http://windowmotorworld.net/ I had a heck of a time getting the driver side regulator with glass out, lots of little movements to get enough clearance to get it all out. To reinstall i cut a small corner off one of the brackets to make it easier to fit back in that space. I had to remove the glass as they didn't want the glass with the regulator. Right now I could use a bit more adjustment in getting the glass to seal 100% to the door glass but I can manually move the 1/4 glass by hand and it works well. I would use them again as they were fast to fix
  11. I had my 1991 conv rear glass regulators replaced and mine were from a 1988 Chrysler LeBarron as the rebuilder told me.
  12. When I owned a paint/rust removal company in the Detroit area we used low pressure blasting with plastic, glass bead and walnut shells. Depending on what it was we were trying to remove. Plastic or walnuts were for paint, bondo, undercoating, caulking and other non rusty things. Either the plastic or walnut would remove undercoating very easy. Low pressure in the 15 to 25psi range and using a 1/2 nozzel to get the jkob done. We did many older Corvettes and lots of steel bodied cars this way. Problem was the materials we shot for that job got tossed after the car was done as the oily undercoat
  13. When I pulled the radiator out of my 1991 Conv I took it to the radiator shop and had them recore it. Never even asked what they thought it was? He said no problem and I picked it up the next day all done. He did use a bit bigger tubes inside the core for more flow he said.
