  1. Your going to have to remove the trim panel and see if it's come out of it's track or the bolts that hold the track to the motor have fallen of.
  2. Next project is Claying the paint. I used a Clay Bar on the trunk lid in the fall and was very pleased with the way it cleaned up the finish of the paint.
  3. Done and done. I finished installing the new pipe yesterday. Before installing, bought a can of spray on bed liner and coated the pipe. Installation was easier then taking it out and so far no leaks.
  4. Just an update. I found a new Heater Pipe online so I bought it and it should be here early next week. Once i get it, it's put her back together and she's good to go.
  5. Thanks for the info. I'll take a look.
  6. Or it was thought up after a liquid lunch on a Friday afternoon. Since I have limited space in my garage, I couldn't take it out from the bottom of the engine bay. So I took it out from the top. I removed the ' dog bone ' engine mount, disconected the main wireing conection on the firewall and rolled the engine forward enough to wiggle the tube out. If I didn't do it this way, I would have had to remove the passenger side front wheel, along with the CV shaft and altenator.
  7. Now that the weather is starting to get warmer, I've started fixing the coolent leak in my 94 Cutlass Convertible with the 3.4 DOHC. I knew where the leak was and made a plan to get the coolent pipe out to see if it could be fixed or get a replacment one. So after 2hours of fighting, I got it out. I think that the rust rot is too far gone to weld up but it's only in one spot so I think that I can cut it out and weld a new sleeve over it. If i can't fix this I'm hoping that I can find a replacment tube.
  8. Since the car is in my garage for the winter, I was going to start it in March . Thanks for the offer of help. I'm let you know.
  9. That is the pipe I'm talking about. Sounds like this is something that happens alot with the age of the car and where the part is sitting. I have access to an Oxy-Acetiline unit so I will try brazing the repair.
  10. Before putting my 94 Cutlass Vert away for the winter, I was chasing a coolant leak. I've traced the leak to a metal coolant pipe on the right side of the engine compartment that has pinholes from some form of corrosion at a mounting tab. I want to remove and clean up the area and weld the pipe. My son say's I can't weld it. The pipe is steel not aluminum, so I think it can be fixed Has any one done this type of repair or do you just look for a replacment at a yard.
  11. My number one go to guy for parts for my 94 vert.
  12. Easier said than done. Any yard up here just crushed these cars as soon as they striped the useable parts from them. I'm going to try Don in MI to see if he can help.
  13. I took my car to my sons shop this morning and when we got it up on the lift this is what i saw. The plate has rotted on the left front, and only the leftside. The rightside and the rest of the car are fine. We washed the underside and made a list of things to touchup, like doing some undercoating and replacing the corroded brake lines. This dry rot is saddening as this is the only major problem found. Looks like I need to find some plate steel and start fabing a replacement.
  14. As my late father all way's told me, when your buying tools , buy the best the first time.
  15. If you can't sell it, would you be interested in parting it out ?
