Try West Marine or some other marine supply place and get stainless pieces.Vantage said:Can you make a quick list of things to pick up from Home Depot? I guess it wouldn't be too hard to pick up a bunch of extras, but this might save me some time! TIA.
Right. With about 350 days a year of brisk on-shore breezes, we have plenty of salt and humidity in the air. I find that plated stuff doesn't last very long. I completely refitted my house with Baldwin "lifetime guaranteed" brass fixtures. Three years later all of the outside hardware is very noticeably pitted. Forget about brass lamps. And, I have to keep a thin coating of oil on my tools or they're goners. Galvanized steel...forget it. This problem extends even several miles inland.CALtd said:As to being interior of the car, with the top off the car while I am out sailing, the salt air is going to affect the car if precautions are not taken.
I can't say it will "save you time", or cash, but discover Marshall's hardware off of Miramar. (an Ace hardware, but nothing like you've ever seen.) You'll be doing the :nanner2: as soon as you walk in.Vantage said:Can you make a quick list of things to pick up from Home Depot?

Jer -Surferjer said:So does this mod help with finding gears? I mis-shifted three times yesterday, a very unusual thing. Of course I've never shifted into third at an autox before 9a very fast course), and the mis-shifts were all to third (out of 10 runs). It ruined two good runs and left me very frustrated.
I had to open up the hole also. There was no way that bolt would go in without cross threading it if I didn't. Even loosening up all the bolts, I couldn't shift the carrier enough to avoid grinding.jim-clayton said:I too installed the Stan studly mod. I had to oblong the hole in the shifter bracket. Quick and easy with dremel and carbide cutter.
...............''The Smokey Bolt''. I performed this mod over a year ago on a few''sporty Elises'' my plan being to leverage for more Guinness at the Tech Inspection. All the best, DonStan said:Hmm...maybe I should come up with a snappy nickname for my mod idea?
