Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Just a little mini shoot at the local 4H yesterday... Getting my calendar submission choices ready early this year! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170720/c92687da954dcfecbf2853d328a4cc57.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170720/f0bb2550575d4114fb2f60d9b5f7d981.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-c...

But I have to ask, what is the little round black thing under the front bumper?

They're yellow projector fog lights that I picked up many, many years ago. I can't get myself to switch away from them, lol.

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Underside of the new hood is now refinished! Satin black VHT engine paint, with a light spray of truck bed liner over it for texture.

Re: 4T60E leaking out of passenger output seal

That's what I had thought too, but I mic'd the reman and the new shaft where the seal fits around them, both measured at 35mm. The reman did have more play which was odd...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

I got tired of the TPS and IAC screws coming loose and the heads stripping, so for $2.50 at Lowes I picked up some better screws and lock washers. Much better fit! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170706/7510672c76cc6bde171e85e52c10cb49.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170706/f43ec168171ce05...

Re: 4T60E leaking out of passenger output seal

I went ahead and redid the seal, installed a new halfshaft instead of reman, which actually had less play in it, and used some grease on the lip of the shaft when I installed it. Leak is finally freakin' fixed!

Taking forever, but almost ready for paint! Dent was bigger than I thought. It won't be perfect, but it will be much better.

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

Awesome hope it all goes well, to bad u don't have the disc brakes to upgrade to while swapping axles I'd highly considered it, but the funds just aren't there. I also didn't learn about the disc swap until a couple weeks after I replaced every piece of the drum brake setup, so it's all been replac...

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!
