  1. And today I change oil and put the 'vert away until she leaves for her new home in Texas. I hate that drive in the 'vert, because unlike taking the Enclave [sleeping on a mattress in the back] there is no place to sleep [in a Reatta] so I will have to rent a hotel room on the way down. Probably just as well as it is pretty cold in February. But on the good side that means we will have a Reatta to drive every day in our "winter" home!

  2. Contact Barney Eaton. He offers the headlight repair kits and I believe he has rebuilt motors at a good price. barney@texas.net Tell him Ronnie sent you.

  3. I hope all that cold weather stays up there for a while. I'm enjoying driving my Reatta right now. Temperature was 71 here and the foliage is beautiful. I drove about 150 miles on some really cool back roads. We stopped at a little chapel out in the middle of nowhere where some of Kat's relatives are buried in a cemetery in the back. Swafford chapel sits on about 2-3 acres of land and it's surround by cow pastures as far as the eye can see (second photo). All owned by the Swafford family. I came close to getting my windshield broken today. Going down the old road to the Chapel a bi

  4. Those Monroe strut part numbers seem to be the same part number for Monroe Sensa-Trac struts like I installed on my Reatta. They have just changed the name of the struts to OESpectrum. They are very good struts.

  5. Ship, Thanks so much for the parts list - it seems very complete and with the best parts available for our 30 year old Reattas! RemSteele - I second what Ship and Ronnie have shared . . . this work does not need to be done at a dealership, in fact you are better served by going to a reputable mechanic or shop who understands basic GM and you have a trust level or at a least a good referral. By the way, I really like your red Reatta! Nice pic!

  6. Had a little time and thought I would swap out the wiper switch in the Black. The old one works fine and lights up well and looks good, but I had a like new one and thought "Why not? No one is interested in them and I have at least 3 more switches so the swap was made. I also installed a door pull end of my own design. I noticed about 2 weeks ago that the cap was missing. My SIL has a 3 D printer and he made some caps for me. I also had a friend make some of the plugs out of hardwood which I use to replace the weak plugs supplied when the cars were new. At any rate quick fix and now the

  8. When you look at those stones up close you can see most of them have markings on them where material has been chiseled away by hand to make them wedge shaped to form the radius of the tombs. The large square stones on the ends have the names and dates engraved on them. It must have took many days to make the tombs. The more I look at them the more I appreciate the work that went into them.

  9. Haha. No, but it might be possible to get into a Deliverance situation in that part of TN. Those people are a little different. It's the only place I've been where the cemetery has graves in it like this from back in the early 1800s. It's kind of scary to think they are my wife's ancestors. 🙂

  10. What I provided in the reply above is the parts list...two of each part listed. MON = Monroe, MOG = Moog, both very well known suspension vendors. I'm sure a local mechanic near you in NJ can handle installing struts and mounts. Google Monroe, or Firestone, or Sullivan Tire, or related suspension/tire shops/topics (??) for your area.

  11. No, The ECM did not help. No improvement whatsoever. I have replaced all sensors and my downstream 02 sensor is reading correctly now. The last test I ran was on the IAC. The manual has the instructions. And guess what, the sensor itself if right on, however the plug was not making contact with the sensor. I don't know if the plug is bad or the wire at the plug was bad. but I replaced the plug w/ wires and you guessed it all is fine. The IAC was opening up, but failing to close and cut down the idle. Evidently the IAC would open up so far that the engine

  12. $28 bucks is high. The patch I got has a white background. We trimmed it to follow the outline of the car and sewed it on the black jacket. I think it looks great. On another note, tomorrow the Black gets its first oil change [at least by me].

  13. At the top of the Forum page, there is a horizontal blue banner. Click on the topic "more info" and a dropdown will appear. Click on "Reatta Parts Vendors". The first two vendors are very good parts guys with info on how to get in touch with them.
