    I may look into these in the future as the JC whitney ones are no longer available. This last set was installed some time around 2010.

    These look nice despite being a GM part..should fit the bill.

    Thanks guys.

    Quick tip for those struggling with deteriorating door panel backing material...you know the thin cardboard that the door panel Christmas tree clips hold onto...HOT GLUE


    A dab of hot glue will hold the clip in place on the door panel and fix your issues. No more clips falling out and your door panel will stay secure to your cars door.

    Agreed. They most certainly do. One problem....these operate fine and have been the style I have been using since forever...Dad had a set of these installed before I got the car. I remember these since 2000 at least. Its on the list. I will eventually pick up the set and install if I need to take door panels off again....or once door panels come off again.

    Took the car out for the first drive of the season.

    Quick video of the highlights....





    Definitely failed on getting a good line lock video. Will need a rear mounted camera for sure. The smoke cloud is insanely big. Line lock is nuts.

    Cool vids. Sounds vicious.
    Are you pumping the brakes up before you engage the LL?

    This reminds me... I need to post a new WOT shift vid of my car. The trans tune I did is working like a champ. The shifts are firm and quick, but not harsh.

    Also... I love your car.
