    85-88 Delay Wiper Swap

    Hello I am interested in doing a standard wiper to delay wiper swap for my 87 Monte Carlo. I've found an 85 Fiero with a delay wiper switch, which I think should work since Rock Auto sells the same switch for the Fiero and Monte Carlo. The only discussions I have found about this swap only apply...

    1988 monte ss running lights

    Are the running lights for the Monte on a different line than for the blinkers? I realized only one of my orange running lights turns on, but both will work as blinkers and hazards. Is it an easy fix?

    Electrical/gauge system change in '84?

    There are a lot of cool gauge clusters out there for G-Bodies and specifically the Regal, but I'm noticing in the fine print that a lot of them are made to work in '84 and newer models. Was there a big electrical system architecture change in '84? I know for the Dakota Digital VHX, it requires...

    Headliner job.

    I found a headliner board for my 79 Monte at a junk yard, in 1 piece! Came from an 83 grand prix. 17 bucks vs a 100+ for a new 1. I'm pretty sure I know what to do. Any tips would be appreciated. Also I ordered a turn Signal switch today too. I am waiting on that and a manual too. I know I'll...
