      Nice looking car. Good work.

      I'm curious. What didn't you like about the progressive springs? Is it the ride or the response?

      There is (was) a guy on eBay selling uncovered plastic panels for 1800s. Maybe he does other models, as well.

      The force was indeed with me, as I welded a nut on the end of the pivot—after I'd removed the plate—and used a slide hammer to get it out. The plastic bushings were not damaged. I'll use a bolt on...

      Another odd question

      I'm having trouble removing the hand brake handle on my '73 ES and have probably made the situation worse. I couldn't budge the plate that bolts to the floor bracket, after the bolts were removed, so...

      The car was hit hard in the front at some point. I assume the crack was from the wreck. It does look to be polished. I don't see any signs that the arm was cracked or even bent.

      Clutch arm

      Anyone seen a clutch arm for a '73 ES with welded in bracing? It's not factory, from what I can find. The bell housing was cracked and welded at some point so I don't know if the arm was bent,...

      Thanks for the parts numbers. I'll take a look at the front conditions later today and if things look okay, I'll probably do a rebuild. For the backs, too. Those should be relatively easy to do.

      I would think the "special fluids on the bolts" would be some flavor of thread lock. But which?

      Neil,

      The tube stops a few inches before coming completely off. You may be correct about the lower bearing in the tube or on the shaft. Maybe I should focus on separating the shaft from the lower...

      I've looked at the drawings in the parts book but don't see any type of retaining clip. I'll look again.

      Will that fit over a Dynamat-type product and still allow the carpets to snap in place?
