Re: RE: Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Nice! I like Taylor cables -great quality, huge selection (colors and boot-angles). I have a set on my '89 RS Camaro with a 350 F/I Police Special, they've been on there for at least eight years and still work perfectly, they show no wear or age even near the headers. They're great!

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

New Thundervolts! My last set has been on three engines, were used when I bought them, and lasted me nine years! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180704/9713b7c1f5f12f734438e8d25cad40bc.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180704/a23099daed89ccb13ed1ca4a4f42bd4b.jpg Sent from my VS501 using Tapa...

Oh I'm ready! I've only missed two years out of the nineteen I've been going. I will make it to a Bfest someday though.

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

She's dented, dinged, and needs some rust and paint repair... But she still cleans up good! Finally hit it with the polishing mitt tonight. Side note - handles so much better now! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180629/a98387d2a3a5eb8331ef47f4150fdecd.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180629...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Yep, used the slot and the bolt hole, and lock washer-ed it all on! Testing it out tomorrow. Should be a major upgrade from running just my old hollow bar and my MRZ bar in the trunk too!

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Dual rear sway bars are on! I also used ES kit # 9.5157R, it's for 20.5mm bars. Fit great! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180625/5d6db80b405f56185f6649db38feff0b.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180625/a064c586622247069fb0455f58829e4e.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180625/4a1952e76...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Good info, I didn't know how well they'd conform to them!

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

The 12338017 is the exact number it shows on their diagram, I'm sure it's stronger than your average parts store hose clamp. Another seller on eBay is selling sets of 5 for $9 shipped, so I ordered a pack, and will see how they work!

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Thanks to info from Tyler, I found how the Achieva SCX bushings are supported! After lots of research, I found the diagram and the part number! https://www.tonkinonlineparts.com/showassembly.aspx?ukey_assembly=857882&ukey_make=1091&ukey_model=15686 https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180622/b...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Internal rear bar looking good! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180618/8e1ba05004477f25db116f55fae20197.jpg I also figured I should post my vacuum routing in here too. Best to have it where I can access it easily in case anyone needs a reference. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180618/cae5a43e...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Rear disc swap definitely pushed the rear wheels out a tad!

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

I had one leak, a misaligned crush washer! But it moves and stops again, and the four wheel disc looks great! It's still having a lot of trouble starting though. And it really needs a bath... https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180614/ad8d9897329ee4ce481d9a335ec8339c.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn....
