Your doing a great job Cristian. Your story remindes me of my first car and working on it in my dad's driveway. Keep the pictures coming.

Re: Water leak by front of doors?

Thanks for the pictures Fred. I checked out what I have against your pictures and I have everything there. I did some more checking and found that the water was leaking behind the rubber seal that is under the drip trim and then goes down the door jam. When I installed that new seal I didn't use any...

Re: Water leak by front of doors?

Here are a couple of pictures explaining where the water goes. The first one is on top of the car at the end of the drip rail in front. It's wide open for water to go down behind the chrome T which is pictured in the second picture. https://i.postimg.cc/0j8THjSr/DSC01615.jpg The chrome T https://i.p...

Water leak by front of doors?

Ok for the first time I used a hose to wash the winter dust off the car and found a lot of water leaked in towards the front of both doors. I started looking at the drip rail in front by the roof and I can see that there is a clear passage for water to go down behind the chrome T piece which connect...

Re: Powered Trunk Release?

Yes 2 springs. Does your lever move freely, because there is not much spring tension on it? When you turn the key to unlatch the trunk does it return with out doing it by hand?

Re: Powered Trunk Release?

My lever has an internal spring in the latch and the cable is tight from plunger to lever. So the lever pulls the plunger out when no voltage is applied. It always works. The manual cable is in case the battery goes dead which is in the trunk, but I can charge it from the front of the car. Try movin...

Re: Powered Trunk Release?

I checked out my setup and there is a spring inside the latch that resets it. So the spring on your unit is either broken or the mechanism is not loose enough for it to reset. When it resets it does pull the plunger back out. I was testing it by just moving the lever. I used the tube to allow easy m...

Re: Powered Trunk Release?

I installed one like the directed electronic one, but I switched the latch and the catch. The catch is now on the trunk lid. I also removed the key. So the only way into the trunk is with a fob. I did install an emergency cable that I can pull which is behind the rear bumper in case the battery goes...

Re: Pop's Cobra build.

Great to hear an old man having fun with his toy. With the weight ratio to HP that thing should fly.
