Thank you!Rock auto can deliver inside a week comfortably to Germany and you can also have them pre pay the taxes etc. I have never had any issues so far, once shipping to Germany and once to Slovenia
Pretty much what Craig posted - there are dummies available, and I wanna do that soon or next year.I’m guessing you can’t just remove the air pump and get a shorter serpentine belt? That’s the solution people do here which has no effect on performance or fuel mileage as it dumps air in the cats because the solution to pollution is dilution!
I would have put a goddamn wheel stud in the mail for you, had you asked.Most shops just referred to them not having parts for the C4 Corvette, and would not be willing to search by size and thread alone - WTF? I hate it when people purely go by the car model or chassis number.
And that's even a lot cheaper than everywhere else.
I did give the shops an original number and comparable numbers, didn't help. I still refuse to believe these wheel studs aren't used in some euro cars.Rockauto is great when you’re dealing with USDM grey market imports that don’t come up properly in our catalogs over here. Getting an OEM parts number usually helps a lot.
Treat yo self.
Absofuckinglutely. You can’t account for everything of course, but make sure fluids are new, and any other things the book says at or near your mileage is done.I agree, the current wheels look awesome on the car, and I'm not convinved by the available option.
Also, if you're considering roadtripping it next year, I fully agree with lip - preventive maintenance and upkeep should be prioritized. You don't want a nasty surprise like the brake issue discovered at Ringmeet to strike somewhere in the middle of the Balkans, or wherever it is we'll be going.
You and the others, do not worry, I don't prioritize big cosmetics over maintenance, why would I? I hope it never came across as such. The problem with the brakes was something I knew was happening, I have not had my eyes closed for that. The brake issue from Ringmeet mostly came from actually wanting to change the fluid because that's when we broke the part, it might have been fine for the time being if I would have changed it after Ringmeet and not there.Personally I would invest more into the technical upkeep of the car, and not in cosmetics like different wheels. It's a 89 Corvette so the car looks quirky and cool already as it is with the original wheels.
