    Post-tuneup issue

    Hi all, Since I replaced the plugs, wires, cap and rotor, I've got a slight jerk/stutter around the 1800-2100 rpm mark while maintaining a steady speed/rpm. Not sure if this qualifies as a 'miss' or not. I replaced the new Delco plugs today with no-gap Bosch Platinum 2's, but the problem still...

    redlinecorvette : standup ebayer

    Hi all, I'd ordered rear compartment trays from redlinecorvette on ebay, but they never showed. He promptly refunded my money without any hassle. Lots of good C4 stuff from him on ebay and will continue to buy from him based on this. cheers

    3 Interior questions

    Hello all, Searched around a good bit but didn't find an answer to these questions. Any help appreciated... 1 - Are the soundproofing door insulators which were standard in later years worthwhile to install on an older C4? 2 - What did the original floor mats in my 1987 look like? Emblem? 3...

    Poor man's Dash kit removal [several pics]

    Here's what I did to remove the "wood" dash kit that came with my 87... The offending trim: Remove trim with putty knife: This is the awful ancient adhesive left behind: Grim!: I tried many many approaches before finding this stuff. I spray it on and let it sit for 4-5 minutes...

    More/Different RPO Info

    Hey all, In my obsessive researching of RPO codes as I evaluate an 87 Vette, I came across a pretty official seeming list of GM RPO codes. I'm still not sure if the seats in the vette I'm looking at are original, but this list proved really helpful in tracking ALL the rpo's down, even some that...

    WTB : 85-89 Auto Vette in BC/Washington

    Hey all, Looking for an automatic 85-89 C4, not a convertible. Not too picky on mileage, but would much prefer < 125K As close to stock as possible, not interested in modifications, as I would like to fix/restore towards a collector's insurance once it's 25 years old. Thanks! Andrew
