    IPD Side Trim Kit.. Any Good? Windshield Q.

    The ipd trim sticks pretty well. I had it on the rear quarters of my 242 for a while before I found the correct trim. I never had it come loose at all. It was very difficult to get it straight though, you'll want a level and alot of patience.

    Matcha: The Green 245

    My 242 had green carpet when I got it, I didn't realize it must have been brown at one point. Threw that right in the garbage. The wagon looks great, I love the color.

    1976 242 A/C delete help

    I do have that bracket, is there a reason I should use that and not the one I got from sts? I'm thinking I'll use the 91+ pump. Is there anything else I'll need besides the pump, pulley, reservoir, and high pressure line?

    Taking apart elephant ear mirrors

    I got it - remove the screw that holds the mirror to the arm, then pull the arm straight off the back of the mirror. There is a square plastic bushing between the mirror and the arm. I had one crumble apart. The mirrors have sort of fused to where they attach so I had to pull hard.

    Taking apart elephant ear mirrors

    I'm trying to take the mirror part off of the arm. I remove the screw and then just pull the mirror off? It feels like it's going to break. Is there any specific direction it needs to be in to come off?

    S/V/C 2007 S40 Brake light issue

    I?ve got a 2007 s40 that is due for inspection this month. I cannot get my passenger side brake light to work. New bulbs, all good fuses, contacts all cleaned and checked.

    12v constant + 12v switched for radio

    I?m putting a new head unit in my 76 242. The green book for 1976 wiring diagrams doesn?t show anything for the radio as far as I can see. I want to replace the rats nest of spliced wiring with new wiring directly from the fuse panel. I need a 12v constant and a 12v switched power source. Should...
