    mmmmm.... shiny. And it's already out of my budget. I fully expect this one will go for 9K+ and won't be shocked to see well over that. 15K wouldn't surprise me.

    I suppose I could just look with my own eyes when I get home, but I've tried to eyeball it before and 91/83 look to be the same to me. Maybe.
    I decided to make a lowball offer on it. Doubtful they'll take it. I figured it would be nice to have in case I mess up removing the trim from my car to paint.

    Those GM seats look like my current car's. They're better support than my CV but not by much.

    This is cool. I saved the instructions as a loose reference if I ever need to swap on my NOS spare door which has no mirror holes drilled.

    Pretty nice exterior. Just a damn shame those red interiors fade as much as they do.

    The rear trailing arms are two metal links that connect your rear axle to the body of your car. Their purpose is to allow the rear axle to move up and down freely while maintaining proper vehicle alignment. The trailing arms themselves don't contain any moving parts. I would think these would "stiffen" up the process. Other thoughts?

    There was an issue on the early Whales with cracking the upper rear control arm mounts on the frame. These brackets were to help prevent the likelihood of that reoccurring in affected cars.

    That's good to know. I'll have to check out my wife's car when I change the oil.

    I guess my question was where does it go/bolt to exactly. I know all of that stuff.
