  1. Thanks. If they made it from scratch and they're OOB, then we're OOL (out of luck)..
  2. Brad said the supplier went out of business, but I'll suppose the company didn't really make the entire piece. More than likely, they took a production piece from another vehicle and trimmed it to fit the Avanti. The key here is to try getting in with someone in the business and see what crosses over. The auto glass industry has a pretty tight knit web and my recent foray into looking for a windshield for a 4 door was revealing. After I "found" one, it was quoted at over $1000.00 plus shipping, it turned out that the windshield is the same as any other Avanti. I see you have a nice 55 also.... They're great touring cars. What is the VIN of your Avanti? thx
  3. I was thinking near #6 or 8 due to the oil filter redesign

  5. Cardone 5473105 / AMC (big block)Javelin w/ disk brakes, but Rockauto says out of stock / then this came up with no number reference https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/wearever-unloaded-vacuum-power-brake-booster-domestic-54-73105/18690235-p?c3ch=PLA&c3nid=18690235-P&adtype=pla_with_promotion&ds_rl=1269695&ds_rl=1269728&ds_rl=1274535&gclid=CjwKCAjw_MnmBRAoEiwAPRRWW1lxwCrfnELWr8D8g6sQjPbAr8YlNsQoL2jM6c76M9oP5gV2kkvjtRoCov4QAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds Don't know if it's the same but look like it You have to use 1/2" spacers on the firewall mounts

  7. If you can find one, an old home wall thermostat had a mercury switch that could be transplanted into the silver case of the trunk switch.
  8. Paul's Chrome in Mars, PA does quality work with a range of prices..
  9. Yep, that's when he realizes he listed it for too little $$$
  10. Currie 95302 wheels stud (1/2 X 20 X 3") I had the same issue after going with alloy rims and used these. They had to be shortened 1/4" to stay inside the lug nut but there are longer lug nuts available also. It does give a better sense of "wheel" security.
  11. Never had an experience with Bilstein, but have an original Koni shock set on my car. That along with the larger sway bars makes it handle like it's on rails. A totally different ride from stock.
  12. Subsequent to this, I searched around and got a reply from one of our Vendors ( Bob Ziff), who owns one ( 90 4-door).... He says they are the same glass as used in the Avanti II's. So, I just finished looking at a lot of pictures I have of the 90's and have to say there is a very good possibility they use the same glass. There is the same raised hood feature on the 90 as is on all the previous Avanti models and that translates into the cowl right under the windshield. Is there anyone close to you who owns another model Avanti that you could compare?
