Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Output shaft leak has been resolved! The lady's Cavalier is taking up the garage, once it's out of there the rear axle is next for the big project!

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

I'd been having issues with a leaking passenger output shaft seal on the trans, so today I installed a new seal and a NEW new halfshaft, not a reman unit. I used some Ultra Grey on the lip of the seal, used Ultra Black last time. Once it dries tomorrow, we'll see if it fixes it! The new halfshaft ha...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

My phone crashed last week, finally got the replacement today, so here's two pics I stole from Bobby Duphily and Shane when they swung by on their way home from Bfest on Sunday, haha. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170629/90b4d380858b9b75620c3a4d60fc5fe7.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2017...

4T60E leaking out of passenger output seal

This is throwing another wrench in the mix with all of my other projects on this car. The passenger output shaft seal was leaking on my 4T60E, which I had already previously changed. I didn't use a cheapy when I changed it the first time either. The seal still looked fine when I removed it to instal...

Not a bad price for the mileage, but the duct tape on the rockers makes one curious... https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170611/f31229fed26f53ad8ba0be0f03db5e34.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170611/a81be6ea86cb070e05b66865518d74a9.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170611/5c9afafd662d4...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

So good and bad... Front fender is finished, coated the rust in POR15 and painted the bad spots as well! I also got the rust on the hood lip POR15'd, but haven't taken an after picture yet. But in the final stage of repainting my hood, a strong gust of wind blew the hood over and dented it up too. I...

Re: Corsica z22

You could possibly compare head gaskets at the local auto parts store, that should help a lot!

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

No worries, I won't be there either. The car needs a lot of little things fixed, and I have too many projects with not enough money. I can only "afford" my family vacation this year anyways, lol.

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Here's my score for the trip! The hood peeled quite a bit, I scraped all the bubbles off after I took the photo of it. It's mainly on the left side, lots of small spots in the middle, and a medium size mark on the right side. All fixable. I also have to use some POR15 on the inside of the hood lip a...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Side project Sunday? Whatever, it sounds good to me! I'd been planning to do this for a long time, and finally decided to give it a shot. Years ago on my gear indicator I painted over the orange with gold, because I thought it looked "cool." Well, it didn't match my instrument cluster over...
