Actually.. when I get around to the interior upgrades.. a push button start is on the list. I have some cool ideas for a modern interior (dash).

You can win or lose at Denio's. Some stuff is great and some stuff is junk.

I hated the fact that I shaved the handles... Worst mistake I ever made. I busted out the window because I was so pissed.

We can match the paint. We'll just re-paint the whole car.

I'll go to Walmart and get a gallon of high quality latex paint. Dave, you bring the rollers and brushes.

Yeah...Yeah...

I hate to say this publicly, but since I put on the remotes the doors are kind of cool. I got it working correctly so the lock button on the remote is for the driver door and the unlock button is for the passenger door.. no more auto lock and unlock.. so I come up on the car, press my handy dandy remote.. and Whalllaaaa... door opens. Pretty trick. (until it breaks again..LOL)

I have an idea. Weld them shut and do a Dukes of Hazzard every time you have to get in.

I was thinking of shaving the handles and putting door poppers on the '73, but I think you have talked me out of it.

Shocked

You get a little moisture on a solenoid and fire it a couple times and it fries. More hassle than it's worth.

You know you want to at least try a couple times.
