Re: replacing touring top

I am replacing the top on my 21 Touring using the Classtique kit. The rear straps on my car were adjustable. The ones that came in the kit are not. They just nail on. What are you all doing in this area? Is the adjustable feature necessary. I don't remember ever adjusting them in the past.

Re: Auburn Mother Lode Swap Meet

The Mother Lode Club will have a "Club" spot on the corner, opposite the food booth. There will be a few chairs, with shade. It may not always be manned, but everyone is welcome to stop by. Let's pick a time, I will put up a sign.

Re: Sort of OT-rattle can paint problem

Re: Discovering The Wonders Of The Bosch DU4 Magneto

My wife recently bought a tactical flashlight with a stun feature. As I was opening the package to see how it worked, I pushed the wrong button while holding the wrong end. It zapped me good, Lucky for me it was just out of the box and not fully charged! :o

Re: Old Photo - Remember Going Here?

We used to drive our T's to the Drive-In in Bakersfield and Fresno years ago. We still have one operating here near Sacramento in Rancho Cordova. Its all digital projection and FM for the sound. Might try to rally the group and take in a movie this spring. Will have to take a portable radio.
