    Re: 1990 Consulier GTP Targa

    Was a major pain to install these.
    First I tried to use the new slide rails and that just would not work.
    So I modified the Recaro rails and that worked.

    Installed. Now I need to see if the fronts fit. If not need to do 205's on some 7" wide wheels.

    Always loved the wheels Revolution builds, an under-hyped company. Very interested in hearing your driving impressions with sticky rubber.

    Re: 1990 Consulier GTP Targa

    I wish I could buy two more Revolutions in 7" wide....cant find any.
    (to run 205's on)
    These are 8" and am afraid this might be too wide for the front.
    I won't know for a week or two, when I pull the car out of storage.

    Pulled the car out of the storage for a couple hours on this "day off".
    Took it to the coast (about 20 miles one way) and stopped at Sunset Bay for a photo.

    Re: 1990 Consulier GTP Targa

    Stored the car for 2 months while fixing up the shop and using the shop to install the new tranny in my 92 Dodge diesel.
    But did get the valve stem seals replaced, so now it doesn't smoke at start-up after sitting a couple weeks.
    TOOK it to a shop owned by a ex-chrysler mechanic. (real good guy)
    He installed a new AC compressor. He says it runs real cold now.
    I'll go pick it up tomorrow or Tuesday.
