Hey Terry,
If the quater is heads up, keep it. If it's tails, leave it and just put it all back together.
Hope this helps. LOL

When they re-did the A/C and heater core on mine, they found sunglasses and some coin. Turns out the defroster grill on top of the dash had been missing for some time. You know NO ONE makes a replacement for the 78 up defroster grill! Had to pay through the nose for a used one. Aren't these things fun?

I did my heater core when I replaced my dash.  I have done it on a Vega and never want to do it again.  I also paid my son-in-law $50 to do it and replace the radiator all of the hoses.  I think I got a good deal.  Now I know there is an access plate you can get at it from under the car?

That is great I have heard that the Bronx was a great place close to everything and not much foot traffic.  Let talk about a trade.  I have this place just a little east of here.  Relaxing in the summer no traffic just a good place to be.   A river is close, women are well tanned, etc.  Every heard of Yuma?
