Buttoned up the transmission, changed the engine oil again, and took it for a test drive. Eight quarts of ATF+4 seems to have done the trick. I still have one more Mopar Performance filter and gasket package from the stack I bought at Carlisle years ago. I'll put 50 to 100 miles on it and service the transmission again. That should ensure that virtually all sludge has been removed. Plus, it'll give me time to find different 10-24 by 2.25" screws. I found Phillips on Amazon and bought them because I needed them in a hurry. Somebody must sell torx or even hex head.

After an accident back in '89 that partially collapsed the quarter panel and the recent quarter panel replacement, I couldn't get the driver side rear window top adjusted out far enough. I finally pulled the adjuster out of the car and flipped the sliding part around and gained about an extra 1/4" of adjustment. Just what I needed to get the glass where it needed to be.

I went back to the beginning of this thread and found a bunch of random photos that are not mine have somehow been inserted into my posts. In some cases, they seem to have replaced the photos that I posted. So, to anyone who stumbles onto this thread and is confused by the photos I am as confused as you.

I had a similar issue with my Valiant Thread, most of my pictures were gone:confused:

Love the Coopers - the letters stay white unlike the BFG's of recent
Even my black sidewall BFGs on my Gladiator would turn brown. It's really bad when you can notice it on a black tire.

It's a shame because BFG tires, especially the Radial TA for classic muscle cars looks so nice.

The big chunks of filler popping off the lower driver door didn't help that Chevelle.
Bondo is not supposed to be applied thicker than 1/8" for that reason. Bodywork is supposed to be done such that no filler thicker than that is required.
Also, bondo is porous, so prep underneath around and on top of bondo is critical. I prefer to use JB Weld epoxy, it's virtually non-porous, tough and sandable.
