Dwayne, he was just checking to see if you were home before stealing your small bumpers.  ;D

Had a guy ring my doorbell about an hour ago and inquire about purchasing my Pinto.  I told him it wasn't for sale but was so startled by the whole thing that I forgot to direct him here to the PCCA classifieds. :-[

If you were doing a concours restoration then, yes it would deduct points in a judging situation.  Since Pintos rarely fall into that category, I think you can safely swap a Bobcat grille in if you like it better.  
After all, it IS your car. :)

Does the grille swap from a bobcat to a pinto take away any points for looks on the pinto ? I'm trying to give it a good look .

Battery tray removal-the bolt at the bottom
« on: June 30, 2010, 10:46:12 PM »
79 with 2.3l. The exhaust pipe is hitting this bolt. Do I have to remove the exhaust first? Engine is coming out, so that will be happening anyway, but just curious. I did try prying on the exhaust a bit, but didn't have much success.
Thanks,
Russ

I've removed it once. I had to have my brother hold the bolt still with an open end wrench from the engine side while I removed the bolt from the wheel side then jam the bolt out by pushing it around until it fell out. I don't think I put it back in because it was so hard to get out.

Thanks. Guess I will just wait until I pull the engine this weekend.
Going to be getting frustrated enough, no use adding to it by doing something that will be easier later.
