dumb question but does the Radar cruise still work with aftermarket? For some unknown reason that question popped into my head this morning on my commute, which was before i even saw this post! My cousin works for a car insurance co and we were discussing calibration of the radar cruise after a bumper swap.

Radar cruise works fine-it shoots through the sombrero. Front camera loses part of its view at the bottom, but parking sensors, headlight washers, and fog lights all operate as before. Lots of plumbing and wiring for all that stuff.

I've used Orr a couple times. Most recently about 3 weeks ago he saved the Courier radiator. I had purchased a replacement elsewhere that when it came in was not "exactly" correct, and had been poorly rebuilt. (painted over rust and dirt) I returned it, and for about the same cost Orr was able to tank it and rod out the core saving the original. A replacement core would have cost me double, but I would have preferred it over the junk I had to return to the other store.

I've used Able Automotive downtown for my classic cars. I've had very good service from them. Have done 4-5 vehicles with them.

I've also heard lots of people using Orr.

Recently placed the power brake booster and master cylinder. Followed by replacing the heater hoses and the heater control valve (bypassed rear heater). Then today I replaced the bearing and seal in the rear output tail housing on the transfer case.

Pulled this home today. Now to get it running.
Guess i need to follow up. Got it running, loose wire on the front of the motor was hitting the crank pulley and rubbed thru. Driving the crude out of it now to figure out my plan. other than replace every suspension bushing as they need it. Ice cold a/c. The kids(usually sweeting in the back of my 80 or Subaru Outback) are cold and want the windows down. Guess I need to turn down the rear a/c.

De-grained the dash -wood grain stickers.

de-flared and LED’d.... much better.

View attachment 1891682 I buy mine 20-50 at a time frame china on eBay for cheap. I’m low on most of my stuff need to inventory and order. Prices have been going up. Thanks Chrump...

These two types are the ones you need T10 are the wedge style for the door and map lights. The panel for rear cargo light switch with the festoon style adapter(you select when you order).

I working on key light and glove box lights right now have 3 different styles on order to find the best fit.

I could put together a few packages for the locals.
I could stock up and put together a package for local guys for like $15 for interior using 3 15 cell flat panel for overhead and 4 t10 for doors.

Some people do bigger over head but I find it obnoxious. And if you’ve seen my rig I have a thing for lights... so that’s saying a lot.
I'd be interested in an 80 kit if you're caught back up. Thanks.
