    screenshot_2017-02-27-16-31-02.jpgthe fix on Install University worked in 10 seconds... after 18 yrs.! The 2 rubber bumpers about size of a nickel and Life-saver width (maybe a Rollo chocolate for shape!) were never unscrewed out to spec once screwed in all the way at factory. My auto pop hatch has NEVER worked, but i adjusted each rubber bumper out c. 1/2 turn and "Voila! " She pops like factory fresh! Grinning! I was holding a gift bottle of wine from trunk while doing it, too! So easy! HILARIOUS GM story....
    THANK YOU THANK YOU TransAm Terry for the Install U. link!

If you keep them both well greased, you should never have an issue.
    I've been having trouble with the hatch release for months, but never any trouble with the hood. (That's it in driving F-body cars since the last century.) I'll try some lubricant, thanks - don't know why I never thought of that. I should be glad the car with well over 150,000 miles doesn't have any problems under the hood. It did just get pooped on days after a wash

    I put the final torque on the new parts, greased them up, and adjusted the new shocks to 1 full turn past full soft... Haven't test driven it yet, though. I'll probably wash it today, if I get the chance.

    My pad cracked on my '89, and I used some Toyota F.I.P.G. (form in place gasket) on it, and dyed the vinyl on it, and it looked brand new.

    Cool

    Have to say with all this nice weather here in NY, was able to finish the stereo install with no issues. Now onto some better speakers although it does sound pretty good with the stock ones!
