I didn't check if this one had already been posted, but it probably deserves a second chance anyway....

I'd like to see it with the rear lid closed, but it looks just like just too many different design themes. The square tail pipe extensions REALLY do not blend with a car that has NOTHING square on a fat/round-fendered shoebox. Another case of changing something/adding something just for the sake of adding/changing something.

The roof is too "thick" from the rain gutters up to go with the camaro rear window and the spoiler?????? With a connie kit? Oh c'mon, man!

I have only touched one in my life and that was enough. I didn't work on it as I remember. It was one of those estimates that you are THRILLED you don't get.

There was a "flag" on the worm cable that with a 1/4" bolt attached the cable to the window that allowed the motor to pull the window up and down. That little bolt had a nasty habit of falling out and disapearing into the headliner. Once detatched from the cable the window had a built in safety measure that would not allow the window to close all the way, so you had to fix it because you couldn't securly lock up your car. The back window was open about six inches.
As I remember the job flat rated for about five hours. All the mouldings , headliner and whatever else that was in the way had to come out. After the first one I figured which moulding actually had to come out, how much of the headliner had to be loosened, what kind of tool I had to make to retrieve the bolt, how fast down the road I had to reach before slamming on the brakes to move the loose bolt into retrieval position, how far to shove the window back up to line up with the cable and reposition the flag near the small hole created by loosening that small section of the head liner. which socket filled with dum dum and extension that would just reach, and vol lah! Twenty minute job!

Loved them!
