  2. Hello to all Reatta owners. My first Reatta a 89 I bought 6 years ago. Loved that car got rear ended 5 years ago. The guy was driving a square front Chevy doing 45. Said he never saw me. While the entire back of the car was crushed. I had just a few injuries and survived. I think the construction of the Reatta saved me. The insurance company by the way offered me $350. My lawyer got it up to $2500. Been looking for a replacement ever since. Found a nice 90 convertible a couple weeks ago. It was close by and was very pleased to get it. Has 93000 miles and I am the 3rd owner. I am in Western NY

  3. Today Bob and I reinstall the dash. Kendall found the short. It was in the loom of wires that run in front of the engine from the dash to the cornering lamps. In this case the passenger side. He also closely inspected the taillight bulbs and found 4 that were "bad" The filiment in these 4 bulbs were touching each other and didn't look right, so out they went. We did set the dash in place so we could reconnect the junction box of wires and then test our work. We ran all the tests, high/low beams, taillights, brake lights, running lights, fog lights, and directionals. All good..

  4. Today Bob and I removed the dash so that Kendall can run down the short I have in the 'vert. he has every confidence that he can get this done. Took us about 90 minutes to get the dash out. Although I cheated by already having the top pad and console out to make the dash removal go a little faster.

  5. Yeah. Don't use a self drilling screw into the support for the radiator without checking to see if the loom is on the other side. It just nicked a tan wire and was enough to cause a dead short that was virtually untraceable. We were mounting the two relays for the after market headlight relay harness. The leads were too short for both headlights so we cheated and installed the relays as close as we could to make the wires be long enough without splicing. The icing on the cake? The harness was no good either, right out of the box. We spent about 20 hours with Kendal's, Bob's and my time

  7. I use a forked nail puller that is on a screwdriver handle. That works the best for me.
