  1. What is the best way to look for this when inspecting prior to purchase?
  2. Thank you everyone, this is all good. For whatever reason, every single email letting me know there is a response went to my spam folder, so only now am I seeing all of the responses. I will be looking at the car in question this next Saturday.
  3. I'm close to pulling the trigger on two A IIs. Just happenstance. But I like the rake or stance on the originals better. What is the best way to improve the rake? cut a coil off? Different front springs? Is there any negative impact on handling by dropping it? One is a '79 the other an 81.
  4. Eastwood has something similar to KBS, at lest in the applicator. I used it on my '63 hog troughs and frame. It went in well, and borescope inspection afterwards showed it covered very well.
  5. First, Bob Johnstone's site is a wealth of information, and I am very grateful for him archiving so much information. But, being somewhat adult ADD, I run off in other directions of non-relevant info when I am looking for a specific topic. There is that much interesting and important info there. 1979 Avanti II: window motors are intermittent. Is there a link to diagnose and repair? Can someone give me that link please?
  6. OOH! This looks great, What do you know about it? rdame58@gmail.com
  7. Yeah, I can see quite a bit of work, especially on a car with good paint. As far as the TN car, I've lost interest at that price. I may make an offer if it doesn't sell though.
  8. I'm still searching for the right car. Some later II's look like potential winners, but I can't tolerate those plastic bumpers. What is involved in swapping them to chrome?
  9. is this Avanti still available? It looks nice.
  10. Tell me what you saw, please, you can email me at rdame58@gmail.com or call 828-691-6968 Thanks Gar
  11. OK, thanks. I don't have a trailer, so I hate to make the trip, then haul it.
  12. me too. Apparently his health is not good so he has been slow with responses and photos. I'm not so worried about the rear glass as long as it is not cracked.
  13. And that is my fear! Is it salvageable?
  14. Thanks, that's what I am hoping. It's near Murfreesboro TN and on eBay. Anyone here close?
