My seats are in such decent shape though, that I just cant justify replacing them yet. (Id rather spend the $$$ on go faster parts) When I do though, I need to get that L lock/cutout/heat warmer switch that raynor139 got. That is AWESOME!
    You can put a heater element in between the leather cover and the foam cushion. That's what interior trim shops do. Don't need to replace the seat to get heated seats.

    I completely understand that Cutlass , I'am just being lazy and dont really feel like taking the covers off and putting the heaters in. I would just rather wait until i'am ready to recover them, then I will install the heaters. My seats are in really great shape, considering the age and mileage of the car.

    I am thinking that my sending unit/gage might be for a 15.5 gallon tank.
    Got to about 1/16th of a tank on the fuel gage at 320 miles, totally filled up with 13.625 gallons, so I am pretty confident that the gage is set to be more accurate at lower levels, as if it is for a 15.5 gallon tank. Its all good for me. 23 mpg isnt that shabby either, especially with the car running richer because of the LT's, next weeks tuning should fix that up nicely.

    Jeff, I haven't been back to it! My whole week was similar at work! 8-0

    Tomorrow I hope to get back to it! Hoping the pass side is easier! I'll probably pull the STB to make a little room!

    Been quite busy with mine. I got it back Tuesday, put my overlays on the door badge, bird license plate, and center taillight overlays last night, and put in the Sylvania zevo LED bulbs I had, two for the blinkers, and one for the license plate light as I felt the one I had in it already stood out very much. A headlamp beam out the plate housing .

    We insure the Trans Am through Hagerty. Very impressed with their customer service, agreed upon value coverage, and overall cost. Plus, I enjoy their magazine that we get every other month or so.

    What do you pay? Shoot me a text if you want. I'm curious.
    It's stock.

    I would have to look it up - with 5 cars on the Hagerty policy it is around $1,300.00 annually. Not sure what the breakdown is.

    So not much more than, or possibly even less than, regular insurance.

    What did you do with your Trans Am today?

    I just increased the agreed value of my Firebird, actually. my renewal is on the table. I tacked on Hagerty plus, which is an additional $60 per year and includes a free tow up to 60 miles and other perks. my premium for 12 months with no real limitations is $312.00. My normal auto policy can't touch it. The fella I talked with on the phone bs'd with me about cars, asking what all I'd done to it. I know he was feeling me out to figure out what all I'd modified, and after the rundown he said 'so we'll call it safety related upgrades, we'll say stock'. I really appreciate a person on the other end of the line who's on my side when it comes to stuff like that.

    So do they value the car based on not only the value of the car based on year/model/mileage but also upgrades? What if you have a 10k car book value with 20k in upgrades....they'll insure it for 30k?

    I started out with them and went with Grundy. Very close except the price. agreed value, price was $200 cheaper

    Jon it was by far cheaper than regular insurance, I'm paying something $76 per month to State Farm Hagerty was $451 and Grundy came in at $259 per year with a $15,000 value. It is a no brainer seeing how I have over $11,000 in slips + cost of the car and with state farm it was only insured for bluebook value so if someone steals it or it burns to the ground I'm out all $11k and cost of car. Nice thing if the value goes up I can raise the limit just pay a little more. When I go to the track insurance is off as soon as I enter the staging lane and is back on when I hit the return road. I would guess if a standard company found out you were racing it you would probably be dropped.

    Good info...wouldn't have to worry about staging lanes here as I have a hard enough time just getting it out of the garage lol.

    How is either company with processing and paying out on an actual claim?

    I don't have any answers there but they are used by a lot of people I know and everyone seems to like either of them with no complaints. very well known in the collector car market so if there were problems you would hear something in this day and age of the internet

    What about salvage title cars? Any info if they insure those? I've thought about making the switch but I doubt they'll take salvage cars.

    +1 on the Hagerty mag, Jeff !! By far my favorite magazine. I didn't even realize I could insure a ' non-historic ' car through them. I have my Laguna S3 insured through them so I'll have to check that out as well.
