    Tell them to use this paint. That's who I graduated with, very sharp feller.

    Well, what was the verdict?

    Yikes. I'd like to have that skill (without the time and effort to acquire it). Ha, for that matter I'd like to have my cars fixed to that degree without the time and effort required!

    Yearly update? How are you and the project?

    Anybody got a contact near Evensville TN?

    Aftermarket scares me. I had rot around the rear wheels and the only option was an aftermarket quarter panel. They were so much thinner and the body line was much less defined, I cut them up and only used the area around the wheel opening. On the other hand, my brother was fixing his Chevelle at the time and found a NOS quarter. It was actually a full quarter and fit like a glove.
  9. 6.0 LS engine surge at hot idle

    The torx screw would not turn, so I resorted to bending the metal tab that strikes it. I first had it too open 'cause IAC counts were 0 while RPM was a tad high at idle. I adjusted a couple times to close it and increase IAC count. It never ran any better. (Earlier I claimed that opening the throttle any would make the problem go away. That was false. The problem is intermittent (so certainty is nearly impossible when testing) but it's never acted up in P or N, only in Drive or Rev.)

    "Budget frame off"....I've never read those words in that order. lol I'm curious as to what metal, price, and quality. Some day I might want a few GTO hoods and fenders...two nights ago I found a box of Judge decals. I think I bought those in 98. And some people think 3+ years on a house remodel is a long time. lol

    Oh, I mistook the position. Looks like you've got a nice project. Any details?

    67 Chevelle had a cranked vent window?

    Those Mustangs guys are hard to tell from Honda guys.
  14. 6.0 LS engine surge at hot idle

    OH, idle bad...never heard of 'em. Scanner has none of that. (But if fuel trims are happening during idle, is that not the same?) I've already monkeyed with the throttle opening. I think TPS is .59. So where'd you get this GM PCM knowledge that's several layers deeper than techs get?? I'm a tad envious...
  15. 6.0 LS engine surge at hot idle

    I have ST and LT FTs listed two posts above. They've always been close to normal IMO. Also this afternoon I removed the MAF (which put IAT to -38) and allowed the trims to take fuel out. After just a short time (20 seconds??) the upstream O2s were both happy. Surge was repeatable with MAF removed. However, just a small shot of starting fluid would stop every surge. I think MAP was bouncing between 11 and 13" Hg when surging. (Remember, it's in reverse, brake pedal depressed.) I relearned the idle again today. No change. I just reset fuel trims per your suggestion. The customer called and I told him I'm still blank. He suggested that he take the truck and drive it like it is. I agreed and suggested that if it got worse to bring it back. I had to give up, but I hate killing my time and my bay. Thanks for the help so far, Gammey. I may bring this topic back if he brings the truck back.
