Re: correct finish

The finish you see when you buy new bolts. It like a sanding looking semi-gloss black. That's how I see it.

Re: Rear Fender Identification Help

Re: Frustration

Check to see if the Distributor is grounding to the engine. Put a jumper between the dist. body anda ground. Sometimes rust will form between the too and you get a poor ground. My thoughts.

Re: 29 sport coupe windlace
