    Dip Stick tube issue

    I just had my oil changed yesterday, and while I was driving home, a loud (louder than the exhaust) ticking noise starting coming from somewhere in the engine bay. When I got home, I narrowed it down to the tube that holds the dip stick. Is this an easy fix to tighten it up, or should I go back...

    LED Headlight question

    I saw these headlights (link and screenshot below) a lot on other g-bodies and even f-bodies, does anyone here who has them have any feedback on them? I was thinking of ordering a set but I wanted to do some research on the work needed to set these up.

    Hood struts for a fiberglass cowl

    I recently got a 2” Harwood cowl fiberglass hood and wanted to switch to gas struts to avoid bending the hood from the stock springs. What length have people on here used or recommend?

    88 Monte badging question

    Does anyone know if the Monte Carlo keyhole crest from the 71/72 years will fit over the keyhole on an 88? I was thinking of ordering the badge but I wanted to make sure.

    88 monte front blinker/running light issue

    I just replaced the bulbs for my blinkers because my right running light was out. I’m not sure what I did wrong, but with 2 new bulbs, I now have no blinkers or running lights. When I move the stock for the blinker, the right indicator just stays on. I just got a cluster from autometer so that’s...

    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?

    MONTE CARLO Installing b&m automatic shifter knob

    I just bought a b&m shifter knob, along with a boot and boot plate. I realized the handle doesn't have a button on it, and obviously the factory one does. Is there a type of bushing or something else I could use to allow the whole handle to move down and act as a button? I assume I'd just...
