    I finally got the passenger door to open. Latch was riser shut. Getting the door panel off with the door closed was slightly nerve racking.

    I did some data logging and remote tuning on the EFI 371. I did a couple zero to WOT runs. Once I hit 103 MPH, I figured that was fast enough. Sent the logs to my tuner for some tweaks. She needs a little refining of the idle and I think she will be set. First time I revisited tuning since 2016.

    I got an email alert from the local upullit for a 77 Mav. Went there to get the hood, but it was a total rust bucket. The front trim was dentless, but I couldnt get any of the screws to turn. Then I noticed it was kinda loose......then I gave it a tug and it fell off! lol...that thing must have come from somewhere cold.

    Looks like the ebay spoiler that's been asked about in other threads. Looks good as an alternative to a factory piece.

    Hello.
    Do you like white or amber grill lights?

    Amber but clear would be my first choice if you had them

    I like the clear lense, on the GM stuff it was usually what the performance cars had while the base models had amber. Still needs an amber bulb to be legal for signals but the clear has a better look.
