    I do have the dipstick and tube. They look nice however until I get the front end off I cant get to them because the frame is bent and shoved the engine over to the steering column

    Nothing of any value. I may have one in my swap meet trailer let me look when I get time.

    Will take $100 for the pair plus shipping where are you located?

    I should have several of those plates. Not so sure about the latch and stuff need to look around

    Sold the PS pump assemble already I will look thru some bracket boxes I have and see if I have one.

    Mike, the latch and rod are removeable. Just need the stamped sheetmetal piece that's about 24" long and has a stop on the top.

    Hi Mike! ANY CHANCE the GLOVEBOX DOOR GROMMET is still good on this car? If so, would you wanna cut the metal around it like maybe 2x2x2x2 and send it to me? I have asked a few members to try to locate a few grommets for me in case I bust one up... Please Lemono!

    They arent that hard to remove are they?

    And before everyone gets your panties in a wad this new car is just as rusty as the last one. Cars like this are not worth saving

    Hi Mike.. I ruined two trying to remove them. They are kinda buggirs to remove in one piece... Duane agrees when in fact, he cuts the metal out around the grommet and then he carefully removes the metal bit by bit until he has just the grommet. he softens them in lacquer thinner so they can snap back in... YA. its a pain but I need one ASAP because its holding me up finishing the interior of George Lanoues (San Jose CA) 72 GS 455.

    I'd like TWO in case I mess one up...

    Canya HELP ME OUT here Ole buddy Ole pal??

    is the new 72 gs frame any good??? maybe one of the two frames might have usable sections for my frame.

    Well part of the issue is I had to let the kid I had helping me go. The economy doesn't allow me to have a parts kid anymore. So when I get some time I will try and get out there to get them pulled. Sorry about the delay
