Re: Polybushing a 300 ?

I know Andy (pettaw) on here did this a long while back and it did tighten things up, but with an adverse effect in noise and vibration through the car.

Re: 360 carby fuel supply

Hopefully that's fixed it, nothing more annoying than a knocking exhaust! I ended up having to get a stainless one made for the GLT as the aftermarket ones are so ill fitting nowadays, but it's not a cheap option!

Re: Opening up tail light and front light

Yeah you'll need to remove the front bumper to get to all of the headlight bolts, quite obvious once you've got the front bumper off, undo the bolts under the bumper caps and it will slide forward off the wing mounts.
