Spotted: tabs vert

I know mrthompson sold it to someone in MI, but not who. Spotted at lkq while getting door panels and seats. Waited around for a couple minutes but had to get going. I got winter mode going on in the pic

Wasn't me, that's why I don't have this



I'm just doing little things to get everything working, power mirrors and cruise control right now. Need a cc module and drivers side vert mirror (walked up to the black vert in the yard and completely forgot about it)

Nice haha. You local? Got some nice charcoal door panels from the yard and put the wheels and stock seats back on

I live more towards the Lansing area, but go to school in Allendale and live on campus, so I do visit LKQ quite often. I got a radiator support, cc module (that doesn't work) and the black fire had boots in it, so I grabbed those, prolly why I forgot the mirror

mirrors work. just a bad connection behind the mirror sail.

Really? I guess ill have to tear into that. Everything works except up and down on the drivers side
Also I cleaned up the engine bay and it looks like its leaking oil from the sensor in the cam tower, need to figure out how to fix that

Could be, but it will probably be about two weeks before I can really take it apart to find out, I'm a bit limited on tools at the moment

it was working when i put it in. because i swapped the outer sail from the one that didn't work. yeah sounds like a o-ring on the cam senser. 10mm and stop at the parts store should fix that. the engine bay was one of the areas i was gonna focus on also. keep it posted up i know ben and i wouldn't mind knowing whats happening with the car..

Mike - Thats not too far away, and there's an Advanced auto on the way. Might just do that Wednesday, don't really have anything going on then.
Jason - Sounds like an easy enough fix. I'm going to create a thread, even took a bunch of photos for it, just haven't gotten to making it yet. It will probably be for both verts though

Do you guys know what bulb the license plate light uses? There isn't one in there for me to check

194 bulb for the tag light.

Good to see the vert stayed "in the family" so to speak.

Nice!
