Been looking for an original number A/C system accumulator for the 85 442. Finally found one. The 85-88 accumulator changed significantly from the 84 (2724240), and later they changed it to 2724683 used for 85-88 which was still slightly different, but is totally interchangeable. And SOMETIMES they came painted black, which I assume for GN's but there was no rhyme or reason it seemed. Which the paint is a PITA to remove when you don't need one black. The newer style is slightly more pronounced with the flat spots on the head of it. This one is a bit softer on the edges and slightly domed. Functions the same, but this one looks like the factory one. Most people wouldn't care, but this is going to be as close to factory look as I can get. I'm into it this far with buying parts for it, so what the hell.

Got these and my carpet delivered yesterday, now the interior parts that are available should be shipping out today. Really hoping to have it together for the opening of the Pittsburgh Car Scene meet.

so there i was digging around on dakota digitals website looking at the hdx gauges and the gear shift sensor thing and i came across the rtx cluster they just introduced and decided this needed to be in my car. the gages bluetooth to a phone app as well, i intend to put my phone one one of the suction cup mounts like my fitech unit so i can watch more stuff as well without looking down . kinda stoked to be the guinea pig on this the sales guy said i was buying the first set of these.

Ordered 3 different manuals Haynes, Chilton, and Clymer. Found them on thriftbooks.com for around $4.00 a piece if anyone needs some manuals they are having a sale it seems (never used the site before so we will see how it goes).
